Looking at the photos, the difference is obvious.

While the Baker Air wings (upper and lowers)offer two wind wings per side which does allow a bit of fine tuning of incoming air directed towards the rider and/or passenger, I like the lower cost and easier, yet sturdiermounting (and dismounting) of the Show Chrome ones. I also found, unless you pay extra for the Baker Built "New Generation" plastics, the plastic becomes brittle with age/UV exposure and will crack while adjusting them. (1st hand experience) There are also quite a few little parts that can need replacing after a lot of use.

For the reasons stated above, my vote would go to the Show Chrome ones because of their simplicity, sturdier mounting systemand lower cost

A set of hand wings, plus a set of the wind wings (no matter which brand) are IMHO, a "must" for bringing in comfortingcooling air, during those hot summerrides!!
