The effect of head winds is greatly reduced and side winds are felt as almost beneficial. Due to its open shape, riding with the Streamer is extremely silent, avoiding any Ďrolling thunderí. Note: The aerodynamic advantage of the fairing depends on the position of fairing, rider an bike as well as on clothing.

The Streamer is ideal for commuters as it makes cold weather cycling much more comfortable and enjoyable. The shelter it offers means that you can be warm without having to wear layers of bulky clothing. Rain is deflected from half of the body, so waterproof trousers and shoes are no longer necessary. The effect is to prolong the comfortable riding season to almost the entire year. Weather that would keep you hiding indoors becomes an invitation to ride!
The Streamer fairing makes you stand out from the crowd and makes you become more visible at night. Included with the Streamer, youíll receive a mount to hang your front light so that it shines from underneath the fairing. This mount stays on your bike when you take off the Streamer.
The windshield gets most of its strength from its shape but complete rigidity is ensured by a pair of channel section aluminium spars which are located on widthways by strips of velcro. This mounting system means there is no drilling needed in the fairing, eliminating a potential breaking point. It also makes the fairing easy to break down for transportation.
Because of the rigidity of this system, the plastic screen can be made verry thin but does not vibrate, rattle or transmit any road noise. In normal use the windshield is almost indestructible, it will withstand severe knocks and even modest dropping without breaking. Abrasion can lead to scratching of the surface but this in no way affects its functionality as the rider is always looking over the top edge. The windscreen comes standard with edging tape all the way round.
The fairing is mounted onto the frame by two fully adjustable struts, the front one mounts under any bottom bracket or sealed bottom brackets tube, and is held by a quick release lever. Our new quickmount strut can be assembled in minutes without opening the bottom bracket bearing. Please note that for a good view over the fairing your crank axle should not be higher than 18 cm above your seat base.The rear strut is a telescopic pressure fit and mounts onto the main boom of the bike by means of a rubber coated jubilee clip. Because of the positioning of the mounting brackets they are able to take large front or side loads without moving, making a structure that is extremely rigid.
