Modern motorcycles have great design and great power. But when driving at high speeds, such a parameter as streamlining, or, in scientific terms, the aerodynamic coefficient, occupies a very important place. And this function can be easily performed by a high-quality motorcycle windshield. But, in addition to aerodynamics, the windshield performs some more functions, namely, protecting the motorcyclist from gusts of headwind and, at the same time, makes your iron horse more stylish and unique.
When choosing and buying glass for a motorcycle, you need to pay attention to some parameters besides geometric characteristics. What parameters need to be paid special attention to:
- motorcycle glass must be completely transparent and not distort objects when seen through it.
- in the places of attachment, motor glass should have a thickening in relation to the total thickness and be 4-5 mm.
- glass for a motorcycle must have a special cord that prevents destruction when small rubble or other foreign objects get in, which protects the motorcyclist from getting dangerous injuries.
- the presence of a special anti-reflective coating is desirable.
When choosing and buying glass for a motorcycle, you must also take into account the geometry of the glass itself. Since when driving at high speed, the drag is much higher than in the usual amateur style, which means that the glass should be small in area and have a larger angle of attack. And vice versa - for stylish but not high-speed bikes, moto glass with a larger area and a small angle of inclination is more suitable.
