Rizoma’s Downforce-Generating Moto Mirrors Won A Red Dot Design Award

Apr 6, 2021

Category: Gear

In their never-ending quest to exact ever-higher performance and lower lap times from their prototype race bikes, Ducati’s factory MotoGP team was the first outfit to employ aerodynamic winglets on its machines’ bodywork in 2010.

Cutting through the air and generating additional downforce — thereby increasing stability and handling and mitigating tire warmup time and front-wheel-loft — motorcycle winglets have thus far been reserved for competition use, though elite Italian aftermarket brand, Rizoma is now bestowing road-going superbikes with this added aerodynamic advantage with its all-new Stealth Mirrors. Inspired by stealth aircraft, the mirrors consist of anodized aluminum billet airfoils positioned at a 25° angle relative to the ground, enabling them to generate 1.7lbs of downforce at 80mph and 9.5lbs at 186mph. Winner of a 2021 Red Dot Design Award, Rizoma’s Stealth Mirrors can then pivot 90°, transforming the wiglets into functional mirrors when needed. As per usual, these Italian-made mirrors boast Rizoma’s usual top-shelf quality and fit and finish. Produced in three anodized color options and manufactured for a variety of late-model superbikes, the Rizoma Stealth mirrors are available now with pricing set at approximately $472 per pair.
