I ran the Bush Wackers at between eighty five and a buck o'five, for a more than a few hours, on my last ride. The guards take a wind profile and hold it, no flapping, flopping or getting loose. The guards are made of the stiffest and toughest plastic we could find. The pic below shows how they wrap around the controls and are secured by the Prong Horn straps. When at rest, the guards stand up like in the picture, when at speed the tops fold down an inch or two into an airfoil.
