Not 3 weeks after winning the Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off in 2006, Klock Werks found themselves at the Bonneville Salt Flats with the winning Bagger and Laura Klock as the pilot. In the first 2 passes she rode to a National Land Speed Record. Reporting a lift in the front end as she increased speed with a stock windshield, Klock Werks set out to design a windshield that would make the bike more stable at high speeds.
FROM PROTOTYPE TO WINDTUNNEL
Starting simply, Brian held his arm out the window while driving, testing airflow with his hand held in different positions to figure out how to add downforce. From there a prototype was designed, and the Flare™ Windshield was born. After extensive planning and testing, including an incredible opportunity to test the design in Nascar Country at the A2 Wind Tunnel in Mooresville, NC, the Flare™ Windshield was born.
The flip at the top of the Flare™ redirects air back as clean, less turbulent air for rider and passenger. Don't just block or push the air, use the air for you, redirecting the wind to improve your ride.
The Flare™ Windshield features "hips" at the sides that re-routes the wind away from you while adding downforce to the front-end of the motorcycle to improve stability vs. riding with the stock windshield.
