Traditional Solstice & Sky windscreens of 1/8 inch thick places pressure and induces wear upon the trunk seal. BackBlade is 3/32 inches thick along the bottom side. Saving this precious 1/32 of an inch eases pressure on the seal, preserving the natural ease of closing the trunk lid.
Traditional Solstice & Sky wind deflectors are made of acrylic or tempered glass. The 1/8 inch weaker material poorly resists stresses and pressures, resulting in warping, cracking, and eventual breakage. BackBlade is constructed of bullet-resistant lexan, providing critical strength along the neck of the mount points.
