ICE Full Fat trike with Windwrap Fairing

Larry, a cold weather rider who is a member of the fatrike forum, is well prepared for frigid temps in his neck of the woods. He has special mitts, a rear fender, and now a fairing to keep the winds of snowy time off his feet and legs. Every little bit helps! Once ICE offers front fenders for this giant of a trike, Larry will likely be the first on the block to get those too (I’ll be second – Larry is fast).

  1. Well you keep us informed of the updates to that, and are you thinking of also getting a fairing for your ride as well…? If you are, please let us know how that works, as I personally am curious and was wondering as to it’s wind deflection capabilities.. Does it really make so much a difference when riding to let airflow travel over the fairing cutting the efforts of forward momentum…! Thanks as always for all your input….

  2. I believe Larry’s prime reason for the fairing on his Full Fat is to keep the frigid wind off his body while riding in winter, rather than as an aid to faster travel due to reduced wind drag. But, I best silence myself before I put words in someone else’s mouth. Maybe Larry will update us here as things go forward.

    You’ve got it right – I put the fairing on to warm things up a bit. I missed quite a few days last winter (in Iowa) because it was cold enough to freeze up my feet. With the fairing and a pair of 45North Wölvhammer boots I think I should be able to get out there in 0F degree weather.
