Italian term or phrase: elementi alari mobili
Devo tradurre in inglese americano il termine "elemento alare mobile" (di un alettone di una vettura Formula 1) in un documento tecnico descrittivo dedicato a tecnici specialisti.

La frase intera è "Alettone posteriore di una vettura di Formula 1 con elementi alari mobili".
La traduzione che ho in mente è "Rear wing of a F1 car with adjustable airfoils", ma non sono molto convinta di "airfoil".

Grazie in anticipo per il vostro aiuto

Asker: Thank you for your help. This element is part of a spolier, so I cannot use this word to describe it, otherwise your answer would have been the best.
