The California PopTop™ keeps the roof 50 to 70 degrees cooler than the body of the vehicle.
No cover can protect your interior better than a PopTop!

These vehicles were fitted with a PopTop at 10 AM and were left to bake in the 105 degree heat for 3 hours. While the vehicle bodies reached temperatures of 147 degrees (black vehicle), the roof temperature only ranged between 65 and 80 degrees.
The California PopTop's
Arctic-white material reflects so much sunlight it almost feels cool,
even on a sunny day.

California To Ban Black Cars?
(Fact or Fiction)
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) follows the
accepted fact that the darker the color of car, the more
energy it takes to cool the car, thus an increase in
emissions. CARB will require vehicle surfaces to reflect at
least 20 percent of solar energy by 2012, a figure that no
black auto paint can currently achieve.
Proposed Action: Ban black cars from California.
However, negative reaction from the "people" have made
them rethink this approach. Yet the problem remains.
Various articles from Google search for "California To Ban Black Cars".)
Solution: Since the California PopTop can keep any
colored vehicle cooler, less emissions are generated. So, bring on the black cars.
Fact: The California PopTop reflect about 50% of the solar energy that hits the surface of a parked vehicle. If you
consider the hottest surfaces of a vehicle (hood, trunk, roof and windows) the California PopTop reflects 71% of the
(Based on tests using a 2000 Honda Accord Sedan.)
So, besides protecting your interior and soft top from the Sun's damaging UV rays; besides virtually eliminating heat build-up within your vehicle… by applying the California Air Resources Board's research, the California PopTop also reduces emissions that contribute to Global Warming.
