First off, this is not my first Freedom Shield rodeo. This will be my third new Freedom and 5th overall Freedom. My first one was for my 2012 Screamin Eagle Street Glide, and it made a world of difference in wind management on that bike. If but for the wind alone I would have been happy but nope, this thing is clear as a bell when it comes to optics and the view out. I’m very happy that John and all the fine folks at Freedom have adopted other brands because I recently took ownership of a 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited. The factory “flip” windshield was OK but had some distortion and it was quite a bit more than the 12″, lightly tinted Freedom I purchased. With that size, I can run the windshield all the way in the down position and have NO wind issues whatsoever. I’m looking just over the top of it in that position. Fully up and I’m really looking through but talk about a clear view along with great wind (and rain) protection. Those polished edges finish out what is a great windshield. I actually did put another brand on my 2015 Screamin Eagle Road Glide Ultra and while it managed the wind, it didn’t hold a candle to the optics and fit/finish of my Freedom, so Freedom is what I put back on it. I’m very satisfied with the product and will not look anywhere else for windshields for this or any future bike. I’ve got two friends that have moved to Freedom, too, based on what they see sitting behind mine. It’s a great product. Thanks John.
