Rizoma Stealth, a Rear-view Mirror that Acts as a Spoiler

 

Rizoma specializes in developing accessories that always aim to go one step further. Both in design and functionality. And now, with the Rizoma Stealth, the Italian firm puts on the market a totally innovative rear-view mirror specifically designed to improve the performance of super sports motorcycles.

Rizoma only had to pay attention to the increasingly widespread trend of equipping spoilers on the sportiest motorcycles on the market, be they Japanese or European. Aerodynamics come first, a primary factor when it comes to speed, and the mirrors have always been a negative point in this regard. To solve it here we have the new Rizoma Stealth, the rear-view mirror-spoiler.

The Stealth has a double function, since it is both a spoiler and a rear-view mirror with which we can see everything that happens behind us. To achieve this, the base that is anchored to the motorcycle is fixed, but the mirror can be rotated, being able to go from a vertical position, in which it acts as a rear-view mirror, to another horizontal, with a 25o inclination, in which it acts as a spoiler. In this position the aerodynamic penetration is improved and with it the optimal use of the performance of our motorcycle.

But it’s not just a matter of aerodynamics, as the Rizoma Stealth has the ability to hit the ground. Its design is capable of creating a negative force, known as a “down force” effect, of up to 4 kilograms at a speed of 300 km/h. This considerably increases the stability of the bike, increasing the braking capacity and making things easier for the suspensions.

When the motorcycle wants to fly, the Stealth mirror will prevent it by exerting a force that hits the front end to the asphalt, so that the response is more precise and reliable, which also facilitates corner entry. It is, therefore, a perfect complement that blends in with the spoilers that are already standard on modern sports bikes.

And then, of course, there is its aesthetic function. At Rizoma they are specialists in improving the image of our motorcycle and in sports bikes, which always look better without mirrors, the Stealth does a great job of design. Obviously, its convex mirror has been specially designed to guarantee a clear and sharp view of what is happening behind the motorcycle, and a treatment that prevents fogging and glare makes everything more comfortable and simple.

At the moment, the new Rizoma Stealth is available for models such as the Honda CBR1000RR-R, the BMW S 1000 RR, the Yamaha R1, the Kawasaki ZX-10R, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000, the Ducati Panigale V4 and the Ducati Panigale V2.

The Rizoma Stealth is available in three anodized finishes (Silver, Thunder Gray and Black) and the pair has an official price of 399 euros.
