Hi Team,

Finally go done all my wheelchair modes, and have some 500 miles on. But am finding the 'lack of wind protection' a real issue for me....have read only one piece on this, were going to the taller BRP accessory shield, offers somewhat little more protection.

Can anyone please resond with their thoughts on the stock shield, if you upgraded to the taller BRP shield, or.....if you found an after market shield that truly works.

I have both the stock and touring BRP windshields. My suggestion is: don't buy the taller BRP windshield until you purchase and use Marcel's touring windshield. I did it the other way and spent money that was unnecessary. Marcel's windshield is vastly superior to the BRP product.

Floto, check out e-bay we make a windshield 3" taller than the stock sport/touring one that BRP sells. Jimmy MMG

Hey Jimmy. Your 3" over stock shields are without doubt the nicest looking aftermarket Spyder shields I have seen advertised. I don't have a Spyder just yet - I will be buying a 2009 model - but I will contact you once I am closer to delivery date.

Cheers,

Bruce

Paraplegic and Spyder windshields

Hi Team,

I ordered and received the F1 windshield from Marcel in Florida....and it is good improvement. Yes, looks are maybe something that I still need to get used to, but I can ride with more comfort than the stock Sport shield from BRP. My opinion is that 3" taller over the Sport Shield is not enough to remove the buffetting.
The F1 reduces buffetting and takes the 'blast' off your chest.....but, at high speeds, it feels like someone has their hand on my back. No windshield can be the optimal best for looks and functionality. Marcel at F1 also has a new Evo Shield for the Spyder, that really seems 'too much' shield, but I read it really work, especially if you are two-up riding.

I tried the Corbin $1500 fairing and windshield and did not like it at all. It set up a heck of a racket in my helmet with both the short and long version of the windshield. After trying in vain to get Corbin to do something about it I sent the entire thing to Marcel at F1 to see if he could fix it.

The workmanship is pretty pathetic by anyone's standards.

So $1700 into this and I am back to the BRP touring windshield.
