Vero Beach, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/10/2008 -- This is THE event of the year for Cirrus owners and LoPresti SpeedMerchants will be on hand to demonstrate their leadership with more engineered performance solutions. LoPresti Cirrus solutions establish new levels of performance and expectations for the elite owner of an SR-22. The ingenuity of the LoPresti team enhances the Cirrus Design’s G3, with new wheelpants, wingtip lights and BoomBeams™.

LoPresti’s new wheelpants, nicknamed “IceSkates™” for their ability to reduce over-heating problems in the brakes with their custom cooling features and carbon fiber construction for improved life and durability. IceSkates™ are also aerodynamically superior to stock and feature a long list of improvements as well as a sleek new look. The team has matched the new SR-22 G3 with their own elegant wingtip design that is highly efficient (read: easy “plug-n-play” upgrade since it uses existing hardware) and improves safety by delivering huge lighting output at the tips.

LoPresti is also debuting a replacement (X2) HID landing light system for previous generations of Cirrus aircraft. Amazingly, this new system provides 300% more light than stock with no added power load! Simply replace the existing reflector in this plug and play modification for your Cirrus.
