I don't think these are a fashion accessory, but provide more security, particularly in the rough stuff, at speed and with the kids on board
I recently drove another Rib on a course without them and felt very insecure by comparison.
I also had mine done during the build, cost an extra £493+vat for all 4 wings.
This was in addition to the £790 + vat I paid for 2 jockey seats (the first 2 came as part of the boat price).
However, the are welded to the frame of the backrest, not bolted on. This clearly makes them v. secure, but I am not sure how a retro fit would be done (perhaps they would supply a new backrest with the wings); suggest contact Ribcraft.
