Protecting the rider from wind and weather, the 'Streamer' front fairing from HP Velotechnik should also make
your recumbent faster.
The fairing was developed by HP Velotechnik in collaboration with the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany. Their deep drawing process has let them curve the fairing for good weather protection and a close fit around the rider - and of course for an elegant and aerodynamic shape. The transparent material allows a good view of the road surface in front of your front wheel.
The Streamer is made from impact-resistant, transparent polycarbonate, and with its universal fixing kit, is suitable for almost any short-wheelbase recumbent.
The telescopic support with quick-release clamp allows a very wide range of adjustments to suit almost any bike and rider.
