Stryker T-Top Announces the SG500 - A New Multi-Function, Universal T-Top for Center Console Boats

The new Stryker SG500 T-Top tower features a modern design, ultra-stiff and ultra-reliable construction, a dual-folding frame for the lowest profile possible, easy do-it-yourself installation, all at an affordable price. October 9, 2009 – Laguna Hills, CA – Stryker T-Tops announces their first universal T-Top for center console boats: the Stryker SG500 T-Top. The T-top is the result of over 1 year of design and development, utilizing the latest generation of 3D modeling and design software. Unique to the SG500 T-Top is its tower design that features sweeping curved supports, integrated handles, and an arched top. These design elements give the SG500 T-Top extreme durability to withstand high speeds and natural elements while providing support and protection to both crew and equipment.

The SG500 T-Top is constructed from 2” diameter 6061 grade aluminum tubing and finished with a marine grade 8µm clear anodized finish. Marine grade 316 stainless steel fasteners and pre-fabricated, pre-welded joints make the SG500 T-Top one of the stiffest and strongest universal T-Tops available. The T-Top is compatible with virtually every center console boat made in the past 50 years, and will fit over most any console up to 45” wide. Standoffs are included so they can be sized for any installation.

The Stryker SG500 T-Top features a dual-folding frame for maximum folding capability. Quick release knobs in the tower legs make it a snap to fold the top forward to roughly half the tower’s height. To save even more space, conveniently placed screws in the top frame allow the top to fold down up to another 24 inches. Depending on the type of center console boat, the Stryker SG500 T-Top can fold down to equal or less than the height of the center console itself.

Outrigger gear can be attached to any of the 7 mounting plates under the T-Top. The top features a Sunbrella™ fade-resistant and stain-resistant canvas top that provides plenty of shade.

The SG500 T-Top was designed specifically for the do-it-yourselfer using nothing more than common household tools. No welding or special tools are required. The T-Top ships in 2 conveniently sized cartons for fast shipping via UPS or FedEx. A video available on the Stryker website provides step-by-step assembly and installation instructions.

Stryker is planning to release multiple accessories in Q4 2009, including an electronics box and rod holder kits.

The SG500 T-Top is backed by a 5 year warranty for workmanship. MSRP is $1899. The SG500 T-Top is available now.
