Corbin's new wind management system! Designed to embrace the wind and improve the aerodynamics of the motorcycle and rider for a more relaxed ride and improved stability. Graceful contours look excellent on the Valkyrie as the Trimtab fairing molds over the headlight like the integrated component it was engineered to be. This is a classic example of form and function having equal importance in the design process. Corbin's Trimtab is also adjustable to work for riders of all statures!
Here's how it works: Rather than try to shove it's way through the air mass like the traditional plexiglass windscreen, Trimtab works with the wind and creates a managed airflow. The wind is compressed into a laminar flow that is directed over your head and around your arms leaving you sitting in a low pressure "bubble". This relieves much of the turbulence and buffeting that become fatigue as you rack up the miles. By working WITH the wind rather than fighting it, the Trimtab makes your bike 8 - 12% more aerodynamically efficient which directly equates to more speed or added fuel efficiency. Careful placement and design of the fairing's shape actually aid the bike's stability at speed!
Corbin's well known for improving the ergonomics and general riding comfort of all types of motorcycles. Our new Trimtab fairing is no different. We know that riders come in all shapes and sizes and that's why we made the fairing adjustable. Since it's designed to be looked OVER, you can easily adjust the angle to the position that gives you the amount of protection desired with a clear view of the road ahead. Likewise you can adjust the position of the fairing for your current riding conditions and inclement weather.
Adjusting the fairing is a snap with the adjuster front and center right between the gauges. Simply twist the knob and raise the fairing for more wind protection or lower it for a cooler look and cruising around town. Naturally we use beautiful chrome components that look right at home on your Valkyrie front end. We also include a molded cover that slips over much of the bracket and creates a very clean look as you can see here. On the trailing edge, we include a leather covered bump pad to protect you in the event of accidental contact with the fairing edge.
Because of the unique design of the Corbin Trimtab, we were able to bring the fairing much closer to you than other models on the market, which keeps you in the slipstream and provides better protection. As you saw in the video above, the rider sits in a bubble right behind the fairing. This low pressure area protects you from bugs and other airborne debris while smoothing out your ride. We've found the air behind the fairing so clean that it was easy to ride behind without a face shield!
The triple rib along the trailing edge is designed to create turbulence in the laminar airflow which actually reduces wind noise and buffeting. As you can see, the top one-third of the fairing is where the air mass compresses and puts the most pressure on the fairing. Because this area is BEHIND the steering head, it creates a rudder effect that makes the bike extremely stable at speed. In fact, the faster the bike is going, the more pronounced this effect becomes. Conversely, the traditional plexiglass windshield takes the brunt of the pressure ahead of the steering head which has a destabilizing effect... this can often be felt as a wagging in the rear end.
Placement of the Trimtab adjusting knob is front and center making it easy to reach and adjust with either hand. You can even adjust the fairing height while riding if you choose. Notice also how the included chrome & black brackets are designed to fit in with the look of your front end for total integration. Triple plate chrome brackets and adjusting arms look great and are well suited to withstand the elements. On this particular model we've changed the location of the gauges to allow best placement of the Trimtab shape. Installation is fairly simple and can be accomplished by the average weekend mechanic.
Trimtab fairing and molded cover come prepainted gloss black. We do not offer a Trimtab fairing in primer only, so if you're planning on a custom paint job, simply order it in black. This way all of the painter prep work is done and it's ready to go. Of course you have a wide choice of leather styles and colors to choose from so please be sure to specify on the order form. To take a look at the materials available, just click on the general information button at the top of the page. In all of this discussion of how the Trimtab works, we almost forgot to mention... It's dead sexy too!
As always, we are very pleased to bring out the latest developments and new products for the latest offerings from the motorcycle manufacturers. Although the Trimtab fairing appears simple in its design, there is a lot of testing and behind the scenes engineering involved. To see how it all works, just click on this image and we'll take you over to a page with more technical information (and some silly animations too).
Manufactured of our exclusive Fibertech™ material for durability and a clean finish. Specially formulated for Corbin, Fibertech™ gives us very tight tolerances with minimal shrinkage so each part comes out true to the original design.
We use a quality gel-coat for a nice finish that doesn't show material weave. When ordering parts in "primer gel-coat" you can expect a part ready for your painter's preparation. Valkyrie Trimtab comes to you prepainted gloss black.
Trimtab fairing has approximately five inches of travel when measured at the trailing edge. Adjust the slipstream to your stature and current riding conditions with a simple twist of the wrist.
Leather Bump Pad
To guard you in the case of accidental contact with the fairing, we provide a padded bump pad on the top edge. Choose from our wide range of material options for a custom look or coordinate it to your Corbin seat.
Average Width: 13" Width at widest point: 16" Height: 22.5"
Average Width: 13" Width at widest point: 16" Height: 22.5"
Corbin's fairing comes to you ready to install with all components included except for a threadlock material (like Loctite). Our bracket mounts along with the top triple so you may find it easier to have a friend help you hold the bars in position during that step of installation. Complete instructions are included with the fairing and can be viewed above.
We use a High-Temp Stainless lubricant on the adjuster when it is assembled. With normal use, it should not need to be re-lubricated.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
