Frequently Asked Questions- Windwrap WGX Fairing Kit
1. Will the WGX Fairing fit my trike?
Yes, if it's a tadpole trike. The mounting system is extremely versatile, and
we haven't found a tadpole trike it won't fit. If you have a Delta trike, like a
Hase or Anura, we have a different kit for them (Remote Steer).
2. What's the difference between the WGX and the GX?
That's a good question. The WGX is wider, deeper, and longer,
and provides more weather protection. The GX is sized to give the best aero
coverage on most bikes and trikes. The choice is yours. If one of your main goals
is weather protection, the WGX is the way to go.
3. What about tinted fairings?
Some people say they feel cooler under a tinted fairing. Others just say they
are cooler looking. We haven't measured the solar radiation shading provided by
the tinting, so we can't make any claims for it. We think it does provide some
shading effect. The cooler looking thing is very personal, it depends on
the look you want.
4. How much faster will I be?
That depends very much on what the fairing is attached to and how it is set
up, so there's no ready answer. Some people get marked improvements, and some
find they can't tell. Some find they don't notice much of an effect until
they're going into a headwind.
5. How much will it keep the wind and rain off me?
Your feet and lower legs will be well protected. Your upper legs and torso
will get some protection, depending on the weather and how you have things
adjusted. In general, you will be a lot drier, and in the winter, a lot more
6. How easy is it to get it in my car?
The fairing itself removes in about 30 seconds. You can then roll it up into
a much smaller package. We make fleece covers for this, with drawstrings and
elastic edges, but you can use a blanket or a large towel as well.
The upper part of the mount folds forward, which may be all that's needed.
The upper T part also telescopes. It's held in place with a clamp collar, so
it's easily remove. The lower stinger sticks out in front of the cranks, so your
bike/trike will be longer with it on. It is also held in place with a collar
clamp, so it can be removed or telescoped in as needed. Most people find the
most they have to do is one or the other of these.
7. Can I attach things to the mount, like lights, computers, and GPSs?
Yes. We sell mounts for lights outside the fairing, and you can attach things
to the vertical or horizontal tubes of the mount. We recommend lights outside
the fairing, as it doesn't affect the beam pattern, and doesn't reflect back at
you at night. Some people do it, and like it, but it's not what we would
recommend. The ends of the upper T part of the mount is a great place for
If you need a way to mount something, say a GPS, to the fairing mount, our
Accessory Mounts are very good for that.
8. How long does a fairing last?
A long time. We make our fairings from Macrolon and Lexan brand polycarbonate. Both are
super tough and can take a lot of abuse. Things like cracking are
not a problem. It does scuff, but we include a polish kit to help you keep it
