For people who just love driving, being able to have an Ariel Atom under the control of their hands and feet is enough. Despite this, Atom owners must admit that using a helmet all the time can be a little frustrating. For these customers, Ariel has developed a removable windshield.
Although a simple concept, the windscreen must be a pretty nice piece of engineering, since it brings five elements into a one-piece structure: the windshield, wiper, washer, switchgear and wiring. There are five mouting fixtures and an electrical connector, something that seems easy enough for anyone to install and remove whether they are on the track or public roads.
Ariel does not tell us the weight of the assembly, but it must not be relevant to the cars performance, especially for the Atom 500 V8.
