Out of the interface between racing experience and aeronautical inspiration comes a new mirror: Stealth, an accessory specifically designed for supersport bikes. It consists of a fixed part, which allows the fitting directly to the fairing, and a movable part, which acts as a mirror glass holder. Thanks to a rotating system, by a simple movement, the two parts get alligned: in closed position the mirror becomes an aerodynamic foil. While the mirror glass holder is always the same, the fixed component is designed ad hoc for each supersport bikes for which Stealth was developed, looking for the best solution to match the relative aerodynamic results. Made of billet aluminum, it has a convex glass surface to provide a wider viewing angle and is available in three different anodized colors.

Stealth's design, with its wing-like shape and 25° angle relative to the ground, give it a linear look, ensure it generates downforce, in turn improving the bike's grip and handling performance, especially at high speed. Downforce pressure is around 4 kg at 300 km/h. The ergonomics has been optimized as well: when the rider takes a sporty riding position, the mirrors are aligned with the rider's eye level. In this way, the rider does not have to raise his position to get a correct rear view, keeping the head protected by the headlight fairing and, therefore, by the pressure that impacts the face at high speed.
On bikes that, as standard equipment, have rear-mirrors with integrated turn signals, Rizoma recommends to buy, in combination with Stealth, the Light Unit turn signals (part nr. FR070BM) to allow the front turn signals repositioning. Please check the appropriate mounting and wiring kit required to properly install Light Unit on your bike (to buy separately).

Q: Homologation and certification A: This product is not certified compliant
Q: Why does the glass in the rear view mirror have a convex shape? A: The special convex shape of this mirror increases the rear view angle by 80%
Q: What are the benefits of the mirrors generated downforce in aerodynamic wing-mode? A: The generated downforce creates different advantages. First, a less electronic engagement in favour of a more performing acceleration. Second, a better straight-line stability. Third, an air-brake functionality which helps to reduce the braking distances. Fourth, a greater downforce makes the corner entry easier and it helps to keep a higher speed.
