Received a bit before Xmas 2012. So far, my experience with it : GREEAAAAAATTTTTT… ! Yes : quite a lot of improvements from the last version :
- the windshield in 2 parts. When the weather is nice, you may leave the top part at home, and enjoy a somehow “undisturbed front view”. Trikers having had the Veltop 1st generation will feel what I mean. With the 2 parts, the slit offers you extra visibility when it is raining and you have car lights into the windshield, as you may then see a part of the road without bad reflexions. That’s on my opinion THE biggest advantage over the 1st version.
- I bought a yellow one : increased visibility, some reflective material also on the rear and sides. Very good.
- the side protections do not go as low as on the previous version. Even if this may be a drawback in some (rare) cases (e.g. lot of rain and wind from the side), this ads a lot of visibility for you on the sides. In the traffic, that’s very good.
More to come soon. (February 11th, 2013)
Any updates? I bought the same color Veltop 2.
Hi Ron. Well, after more than a year, I still like it very much. No disadvantages so far… but, in fact, I realize than over time, I do not put the Veltop that often, because it does not rain that often – or I check the radar and leave before or after the rain. Hope you will enjoy it.
