Airflow windshield system
Contact: 877/679-4484; giviusa.com
The new GIVI patented Airflow windshield system offers a fully adjustable upper Polycarbonate screen blade easily mounted and removed from a lower shield latching guide mechanism. The Airflow system offers a total height adjustment of 7 inches; however the upper screens profile contours to give enhanced wind protection. GIVI currently offers this system for seven motorcycle/scooter models. A key feature of this dual windshield adjustment system is the “Venturi Effect” created when the wind is constricted between the upper and lower screens. The result is an accelerated force of air through the windshields that pushes the on-rushing wind further up above the rider, producing a turbulence-free zone. The new Airflow system is designed to alleviate the common issues of buffeting and helmet turbulence as well as reducing wind noise and increasing rider wind protection.
MSRP: Start at $239

Company: National Cycle

This Limited Edition windscreen takes its shape from the popular VStream currently available for the GL1800 Gold Wing.

National Cycle enhances its new touring windscreen with thick 6mm polycarbonate material. It mounts to the motorcycle using stock hardware and a supplied set of die cut rubber mount pads. National Cycle has applied its exclusive Quantum scratch-resistant hard coat. It also has a treatment with RainZip rain repellant. It comes with a vent and 3-year warranty.
