  • Sun visor

    Tube mount sun visor made by Axia Alloys in AZ (https://axiaalloys.com/). Not inexpensive at $129 but very well made. Nice fit in a Bearhawk and only takes a minute to install.

    Greg, looks nice. What size did you order? How did you measure for the top tube mount?

      I got the 12" narrow mount version. They have tube mounts for all the common sizes so I checked the plans to confirm T21 is 1.375. The main difference between the narrow and wide versions is the distance between the tube clamps (9¨ or 13¨). The constraint on the airplane is the location of 1/2 diagonal tubes and I thought the narrow version would allow a bit more left/right adjustment.

    Nice find. We may have to take a look at offering those.

      I ended up getting the Rosen Universal Arc system, but they aren't cheap by any means. That looks like a good alternative.

      Rosen Sunvisor Systems provides incredibly engineered sunvisors for an array of markets including aircraft, automotive, rail, military, first responders and marine industries.

        Ram Mounts makes a nice visor that has greater flexibility than the Axia Alloys. I don't know how expensive the Rosen is, but they are too ashamed to list it publicly.

          A quick google search came up with around $600 for the Rosens', so no mystery there. Those RAM visors look great.

        Good stuff here, I am certainly interested in the best non-Rosen option

          Didn't know Ram Mounts made a visor, great price. On their website you have to enter visor, in search to find it.
