    The latest Skater race windshields we build will be good for 350 knots or so. I don't build the pleasure windshield but I would guess it would bounce a 125 to 150 mph 4 pound bird off of itself. Without a structure across the top of it it makes it a lot weaker. It's a great windshield for its intended purpose. I hit at least two birds this weekend on the Clear Water poker run!!

    I clipped a mallard and had to duck(pun intended) to avoid getting smacked in the face at 70mph.
