The WISIL website has anecdotes of racers who have crashed their streamlined recumbents. The consensus is that the skins protected them from abrasion
(road rash). A good fairing design and a lap belt can go a long way to protecting a rider on two wheels from injury in a traffic accident while enjoying that sense of freedom we love so much.
