Double Bubble Windscreens
Following the aerodynamic trends that were developing in World Grand Prix
racing in the early 90's, Team Zero Gravity experimented for the 1995
race season with a unique concept in windscreen design which improves
the flow of air over the rider while reducing frontal area of the bike
and rider combination. The windscreen appears as a "bubble within a bubble"
which is exactly how this windscreen is fabricated.
Bubble Goes Racing
ZG's first version of the Double Bubble appeared on Team ZG's 1995 Yamaha
TZ250's ridden by Nick Ienatsch. Using the 1995 racing season to develop
and refine the Double Bubble shape, ZG introduced the Double Bubble concept
to the Honda factory team for the 1996 racing season. Honda riders Miguel
DuHamel and Steve Crevier embraced the design for its improved airflow
and more comfortable ride. Later that year Team Zero Gravity used the
new Double Bubble on its own RC-45 superbike ridden by Ben Bostrom in
his inaugural superbike race at Sears Point Raceway. In the years following,
the Zero Gravity Double Bubble has become a staple for factory teams and
for Selected Bikes
Because the Double Bubble concept had proven itself on the track and provides
a unique look for the latest designs in sport bike styling, Zero Gravity
introduced a line of Double Bubble windscreens in 1997 for most modern
sportbikes which can be used for street or track applications. The Double
Bubble series is in an ongoing development stage. If you don't see your

- The Best Form of Flattery
Because of the wide acceptance and sales success of the Zero Gravity Double
Bubble, other windscreen brands have tried to copy the unique Double Bubble
design. It is important for the consumer to know that there is a difference.
And we invite you to compare the original Zero Gravity Double Bubble with
any of our competitors' attempts at imitating our original design. The
Zero Gravity Double Bubble will come out on top on all accounts.
