Now, you can stay warm in the morning and then flip down your windshield in the afternoon when the sun comes out on the trail. This windshield is made from 1/4” thick hard coated polycarbonate, making it scratch resistant and virtually unbreakable. The aluminum hinge will last for years, unlike other plastic hinges. “Patent Pending” Rubber Fast Straps hold the windshield up, and secure it to the hood when folded down to the stainless steel catch provided. The top section is made from tinted polycarbonate to act as sun visor. The whole windshield can easily be removed in seconds by simply removing two thumbscrews. Not to be compared to windshields made from acrylic that can easily crack, or general purpose polycarbonate that can scratch.
