What is the Purpose of Wind Deflectors?

Sure, wind deflectors give your vehicle a fantastic sleek and stylish look. However, they serve a much more practical purpose than just taking your vehicle’s aesthetics to the next level. Wind deflectors provide you a wonderful way to enjoy the great outdoors from your vehicle, without actually having to deal with any of the physical mess. By channeling rain and other precipitation away from your open windows, wind deflectors allow you to enjoy fresh air even in lousy weather conditions.

How do Wind Deflectors Work?

Previously, we discussed how bug deflectors protect your vehicle by altering its aerodynamic profile. Wind deflectors work in very much the same manner. These products change your vehicle’s aerodynamics causing the outward draft of your vehicle around the product and kicks out rain, snow, sleet and even dirt. This helps keep your side windows clear of rain, snow or dirt when on the road. Currently, WeatherTech offers wind deflectors for both your side windows and sunroof.

Side Window Deflectors from WeatherTech are custom fit for your vehicle’s specific make and model, conveniently and easily installing right into the window channel. This ensures that there is no exterior tape needed to successfully install these products, and it gives them a true "factory installed" OEM appearance. Optically transparent, WeatherTech’s Side Window Deflectors will not negatively impact your field of vision.

Handcrafted from the finest 3mm acrylic material available, these low profile wind deflectors reduce wind noise while driving. In addition, you’ll be able to enjoy air to circulate through your vehicle while your windows are open slightly during inclement weather. They also work wonders to help keep your vehicle cool during hot summer days, having your windows open will help keep cooler air circulating through your vehicle without having to worry about surprise weather changes.

WeatherTech Sunroof Wind Deflector

The WeatherTech Sunroof Wind Deflector is a sleek and sophisticated upgrade for your vehicle. Custom fit for your specific vehicle, this product is held securely in place using the MagiClip vehicle specific fastening system. So it won’t shift or slide out of place. The unique AirCushion gasket seals the edge of the deflector, so there’s no chance of any rain leaking into your vehicle if you happen to leave the sunroof cracked while driving on poor weather days. The design of the AirCushion gasket also ensures that the Sunroof Wind Deflector won’t damage your vehicle’s paint or finish.

Engineered for maximum performance, the Sunroof Wind Deflector channels the rushing air up and over your open sunroof while driving. This aerodynamic shift allows you and your passengers to enjoy the sunlight and plenty of fresh air without the near deafening wind noise and turbulence you would normally experience.
