I bought a Twizy over here in Germany in April this year. I liked the concept and it looked fun.
Initially the T was intended to be an additional “car” in our family for occasional use as my daughter just started accompanied driving. The Twizy is really great fun and more practical than I ever thought. In the meantime I am using it almost every day for my way to work.
After a few weeks driving Twizy in occasional rainy and windy weather conditions, I came to the conclusion that it would be nice to have a kind window protecting me from rain and wind while driving. As I like the open concept of the Twizy, I was not looking for a solid or permanent solution but for a flexible window that could easily be removed and stored when not needed but allows easy entry and exit when it is installed.
As there was no suitable solution on the market at that time, I started my own little test series with different materials. Finally I found a local sail maker who helped me to design flexible windows that were composed of two parts: a side window and a smaller rear window. The windows are fixed by push buttons which allow a quick and easy installation and removal.
I soon found out that using the rear windows only had additional advantages. The wind circulation inside the Twizy was reduced to almost zero while driving and also splash water was kept out. It felt like if less power was needed to accelerate and even the range was slightly extended. So I left the rear windstops permanently installed in my T.
As a member of the German Twizy forum: http://www.vectrix-forum.de/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=72&func=view&catid=29&id=13822
I discussed my experiences with other members and many of them ask me if I could supply them the windstop. All windstop users are happy to have them. I receive 100% positive reviews.
Pictures coming soon
Cheers from Germany!
