Our customer feedback for our Slingshot Adjustable Windshield has been critical, starting with Changing our Mounting technique, to Designing Stabilization hardware for our 100 mph crew, to improving our coatings (Now using Prismatic Powders powder coat) and eliminating the Manual Adjustment Knob..
Spin4Air's Shorter Blade still gives much more Coverage than the Standard Factory Blade
Our 14.5 Inch Blade gives a Whole Lot of Coverage for Our Taller Customers.
Simple Clean Design, Hardly any Visual Obstruction. Optical Quality Lexan Scratch Resistant Blades are "Virtually Un-Breakable" 1/4 Inch thick Polycarbonate. Sharp Crease Lines Leave barely Any Distortion. Tinted and Clear available.
Our Competition offers Adjustability but Only when stopped. Does Not Seal to Hood with Gasket when fully down. More Components to Obstruct View. Curved Sections of Blade make for Distortion.
