Screen - complete screen & spoiler
Almost every biker knows
them; wind pressure, turbulence, buffeting and
noise. The question is, though, which is the lesser
of the evils?
reduction of one problem provided by many screens
often means an increase in one of the others,
depending upon the height of the rider, the helmet
they wear, their type of clothing and even whether
they carry a passenger or not.
Additionally, because everyone's
a different height, the most common question we're
asked is, which will be the perfect screen for
me - Touring, Double-Bubble, Flip or Sports etc?
And, unfortunately, the answer here, used to be
that whichever fixed screen you may have bought
it was almost 'pot luck'.
To combat this, MRA
has developed the first screen designed
to give riders of more sports focussed multi-purpose
bikes the chance to tailor their bike’s
wind cheating characteristics to suit their
own needs, the 7-way adjustable Vario-Touring
This is a development of the World renowned
full-size MRA Vario Screen - developed for
high end tourers such as the Honda VFR800
– designed to offer the same wind-cheating
benefits for fatigue-reducing, high speed,
long distance rider comfort.
Screen has an easily adjustable (no tools
are required) spoiler near its upper edge,
which can be set in seven different positions
in terms of angle and height to reduce tiresome
turbulence and wind noise. Because the spoiler
sits on the screen, the air flow is fanned
out and becomes virtually turbulence free.
The diffuser effect is increased by putting
the spoiler on end because the angle and
and the distance are increased at the same
time. This technique makes the air flow
in such a way that it is possible to have
a good relaxed ride at high speed for long
love it too!
benefis from the improved airflow and their
needs can used to influence the position
of the spoiler.
For the long distance
or taller rider (over 6 foot or 1.8 metres), take a look at
our new X-creen which has an even
larger spoiler and further adjustability.
MRA screens are manufactured
from a unique and specially developed material
- used by no other screen manufacturer -
with the following ideal and unique combination
resistant and shatterproof - to minimise
the chance of breakage from the impact
of stone chips etc.
- to retain its shape and avoid distortion
under extreme wind pressure and high
- in extreme circumstances should it
break, the resultant edges are not sharp
to most chemicals - including Petroleuml/Gasoline
and Alcohol etc.
(sunlight) resistant - for at least
ten years to avoid dulling or clouding
Advanced techniques are used to perfect MRA's
screen designs for each bike
