Constructed of 12.2 oz rip-block canvas, treated for UV protection and rot proofing. Designed as a sun shade, all seams are sealed to provide reasonable protection from rain. A welded aluminum truss designed is supported on nylon bushes. This cantilevered awning is made for the toughest adventures, this will not break in a breeze and is backed by a 2 year warranty.
The Ostrich Wing is designed to be used without support legs in no wind or mild wind settings.

Mounting: This is a significant awning and it requires a robust roof rack, load bar setup or truck canopy mounting point for safe installation.
Our mounting kits are:
- Standard fitting kit for roof racks with a front-to-back 71" long M8 compatible channel consisting of 2 x T-brackets and 1 x Z bracket for stabilization

- Corner brackets for Rhino Rack (no Z bracket needed)
- Tube clamp brackets available from FourTreks (1 or 2 Z bracket(s) required)

A forward-mounted Z-bracket is required for additional stability for roof racks assembled with river nuts and bolts. Not mounting the Z-brackets with standard fitting kit can result in failure of the roof rack.
For tubular style roof racks a tubular mount strong enough to maintain positional stability is required.
