Long Ride Shields uses simulated wind tunnel testing to ensure the design of the shield maximizes the lift provided by the re-curve design. This design concept originated in the design of automobiles as a mechanism to redirect air around the vehicle to increase fuel economy. The Gold Wing, much to Honda's credit, is one of the most cutting-edge touring bikes on the market with its sleek front fairing that includes integrated headlights and vent systems. Long Ride Shields has followed the aerodynamics of the front fairing on the Gold Wing to allow the air to climb at the same angle and transition from the fairing onto the windshield without interruption. This innovative design allows the air to follow the gentle re-curve at the top and lift the air at a slightly higher level than a traditional re-curve design. When the new 'Taka' shield was tested by local members of the GWRRA in Reno, Nevada, all test riders stated that the redirection of air around them and their passengers was significant, which ultimately resulted in a much smoother and more enjoyable riding experience. The 'Taka' will be offered in two sizes with several tint options. Introductory pricing for the new 'Taka' will start at 209.00. The availability date is March 27, 2015. The windshield is only offered in FMR coated Lexan polycarbonate with glass-coating on both sides. The 'Taka' comes with a standard 1-year warranty.
