TerraCycle Front Fairings - There is no better way to ride
A front fairing protects the rider's legs and feet from rain and snow, meaning less need for rain gear. The fairings are easily detachable if needed, and requires little to no maintenance as it is quite sturdy.
Windwrap Fairings can transform your riding experience. Known for their durability and simple functionality, Windwrap Fairings add speed, weather protection and optical clarity that is superior to other fairings which improves your ride. All of TerraCycle’s Windwrap mounts feature vibration isolation at all mounting points for a quiet ride.
Every part of the fairings, from mount to bubble, are custom made locally in Portland, Oregon.
Developing a high quality, transparent front fairing for recumbent bicycles and tricycles is a major challenge. Fairings of simpler manufacture are being made by deep- drawing. This process creates streaks which result in a bad and often distorted vision through the fairing, and an overall unsatisfactory surface finish. Mostly the material is drawn upon a die with rather a coarse surface in order to conceal faulty manufacture.
This motivated recumbent enthusiasts Mark and Carl Mueller to develop a manufacturing process of their own with the aim of producing crystal- clear, bubble- free, smooth front fairings. Over the course of several years, and besides their daytime jobs, the two brothers devoted a considerable amount of patience, time and legwork to making their fairings production ready. That´s true enthusiasm for you.
The mounts and brackets for the entire product range have been made and supplied by Terracycle right from the start. When growing demand required more time and resources than Carl and Mark Mueller had originally intended to invest, they eventually handed the entire production of their Lexan Polycarbonate fairings over to Terracycle.

Why choose a Windwrap Fairing?
The windwrap fairings, thanks to the properties of Lexan polycarbonate, are very hard-wearing and sturdy (just like the helmet visors of the Apollo astronauts, which were made of Lexan as well). They perfectly enclose the legs thanks to their conforming shape. An even material thickness makes for overall rigidity. The fairing surface is extremely smooth and next to bubble free providing you with optical clarity and next to zero distortion. For storage the fairing can be easily rolled up. The fairings feature vibration damping rubber mounts that keep your ride smooth and rattle free and with their variable mounting hardware can be adjusted to most recumbent bicycles and tricycles in the market.
