1Why a windscreen versus a windshield?
Our windscreens provide a few key advantage over windshields. The first is they retain airflow. Windshields are notorious for blocking airflow making for an uncomfortably warm ride for the passengers. The breeze also enables dust and debris to be carried out of the vehicle instead of getting stuck in the vacuum that develops behind the windshield. Windshields also become dirty and are easily scratched. Our windscreens repel mud and even the little bits that might get attached can usually be removed with a simple "flick" of the screen.

2How does it handle dust?
We have designed our windscreens to maintain maximum airflow through the cab to not only keep the occupants cool, but to help carry dust out of the vehicle. Most windshields tend to create a "vortex" or a vacuum in the cab of the vehicle as air makes its way over and around the windshield. This vortex locks dust into the cab, making for an uncomfortably warm and dusty trip. Because our windscreen is mesh, the small amount dust that settles on it won't impede your visibility in the slightest, unlike windshields that easily become cloudy or coated with dust, requiring the user to stop and wash or wipe them clean.
3How does it handle rain?
Because we use a very tiny mesh material, raindrops cannot pass directly through it. Instead, our windscreens "deflect" the rain, protecting you from the painful pelting that is often associated with raindrops. In a heavy rain, the windscreen can become saturated and the water may run or drip down onto the dash of the vehicle. Unlike a windshield that can become streaked, any water present on the screen can be removed with as simple "flick" of the screen, maintaining clear visibility, even in the event you get caught in a rain shower.
4How does it handle mud?
Not all mud is created equal but we are pleased that our windscreen is capable of rappelling most mud that comes into contact with it. Where windshields provide a smooth flat surface that allows mud to stick, our windscreens don't have enough surface area for mud to hold onto. Therefore most mud bounces of and small peices that do stick are usually able to be removed with a simple "flick" of the windscreen. In the event you get into thick, gooey mud and it becomes caked into the windscreen, a simple garden hose will wash the mud away.
5Will it tear when going through brush?
We manufacture our windscreens using only high quality materials that resist fading or tearing. While we don't recommend driving it straight into a tree or bush, we have tested our screens and they are capable of withstanding brush or tree branches "brushing" against them.
6Does it block the cold?
Because airflow is one of the leading complaints we hear about from windshield users, we specifically aimed to retain airflow with our windscreens. The majority of people we speak to are more concerned with staying cool than staying warm so that is why we aim to retain the airflow with our windscreens.
7What about price?
We won't hide the fact that we are more expensive than many windshields on the market. Most windshields are manufactured overseas in large quantities from poor quality materials. They scratch easily and tend to wear out quickly. Our windscreens are manufactured by hand in our Dallas Texas facility. We use only the highest quality materials that resist UV light and won't breakdown over time. We are committed to providing a superior product that will outlast the competition and we are confident that we have done so. We would rather charge more for a premium product that we know will last than provide a cheaper product that will wear out quickly. We will not compromise on our commitment to quality.
