The SWEGOTECH Forkshield is the perfect solution to reduce CRF1000L Africa Twin helmet vibrations. On many dual-sport bikes or adventure-touring motorcycles like the new and amazing Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L the upwind which hits your helmet from the fork tunnel can cause annoying and loud turbulence around your helmet. Especially if you prefer to ride with a very practical and nice looking ADV helmet with a peak and flip-up visor.
The forktunnel updraft will hit your dual-sport helmet peak from below, but your helmet is mainly designed for the airflow which is coming from the front. These violent upwinds can be so strong, that the helmet starts to vibrate. This is not only loud and uncomfortable, but also dangerous because it can cause blurry vision, headache and even neckpain on longer tours. Furthermore you can feel this upwind also on your shoulders and chest area.
So, if you noticed, that it is hard to read road signs due to the vibrations on your head when driving 50mph (80Km/h) or faster, the SWEGOTECH Forkshield is the solution you are looking for. Many riders install third party windshields in the hope to reduce these helmet vibrations. But on some bikes this only works with mixed results, because even the biggest windshield can only stop the wind from the front and not the upwinds coming from your fork tunnel. The SWEGOTECH Forkshield works also perfect in combination with larger third party windshields. It reduces the airflow enough to help with the vibrations, but still lets enough air through to avoid a vacuum effect behind the windshield. Taller riders experience the helmet vibration problem even more often. Due to their riding position, the forktunnel wind can catch their helmet peak even easier. And also the very practical flip-front modular adventure helmets are more prone to these vibrations, because usually their peak is only mounted at two points of the helmet. Helmets with stronger peaks on the other hand will cause more stress on the neck muscles. But we have the solution to fix all this!
The SWEGOTECH Forkshield is an efficient, lightweight, good looking and affordable solution to reduce or even eliminate Africa Twin CRF1000L helmet vibrations. Our tests show that the rider will benefit/feel the improvement by the SWEGOTECH Forkshield technology strongest at speeds between 65mph to 90mph. We tested it many miles on- and offroad, DCT and manual transmission versions, from the hot desert of Nevada to high speed tests in cold winter weather on the German Autobahn. So, that you can enjoy a safer and more comfortable riding experience.
