Here’s an interesting RocketShield, that will protect you from rain on your bad weather commutes. Personally, I would never spend money on something like this but there’s should be plenty people who might be in need of this.
For the record, this shield does seem to have aero-dynamic effects so you don’t have to crouch down going at higher speeds. Maybe the racers might start pickin’ up on this.
What originally started as a remedy to keep the rain off of my face while commuting daily from Ensenada, Mexico to San Diego, has now evolved into a whole new riding experience with results that have far surpassed any of my previous expectations.
The most frequent question I’m asked by people analyzing this never seen before spectacle on wheels is, “What’s that for?”
After riding with this canopy on for over a month now in all different types of weather and road conditions, I can finally wrap up all of my answers into one word…..”Comfort”.
With my Rocketshields canopy, I no longer have to wear a full face helmet that squishes my fat cheeks, fogs up when its too cold or too hot, impairs my peripheral vision and hearing, and makes my head smell like a sweaty sock. I now sport a skateboard style motorcycle skid lid without having to wear sunglasses or goggles. Even at high speeds, the turbulence felt and heard is equal to that of driving a car with both windows rolled down.
