My goal is to cruise 65 to 70 mph without having to be pushed backward by the wind. I am so close...
This is what I found so far:
Setting #1 : low angle, tip closest to headlight. Plus: Best looking, lowest helmet noise below 45 mph. Minus: minimal but noticeable wind protection at 70 mph. This setting is pictured in my post above.
Setting #2 : medium angle, tip closest to headlight. Plus: Best protection at 70 mph. Minus: loudest helmet noise below 45 mph, not best looking but passable.
Setting #3 : high angle, tip closest to rider (farthest away from headlight). Minus: not the best looking, but it is growing on me. Plus: will test tomorrow and report back.
The conclusion is that it will likely be a compromise between increased helmet noise at low speeds and wind protection at higher speeds.
Erdoc, Is the wind that is deflected from your chest now hitting your helmet ?
Very informative post, many Thanks,
