• Premium high impact modified acrylic – Very durable – 5 Year Warranty
(same material used around hockey rinks)
• D.O.T. Approved – Exceeds industry and D.O.T. standards
• UV protection – shield will not discolor or haze from the sun or weather
• Rain-X safe
Choosing a Size
• To look over the shield, the ideal height is where the top edge of the shield is level with the tip of your nose. This gives you about 2” to see over the top of the shield when looking straight ahead and with this height the wind will clear the top of your head for a comfortable and quiet ride.
• To look through the shield, the ideal height is where the top edge of the shield is about 2-3″ above your line of sight. This gives you the most comfort and protection, but when it rains and the shield gets dirty it gets harder to see through the shield.
• The shield is measured from the top of the fairing to the top of the shield, basically the exposed shield when it is mounted on the bike.
• To help determine which size shield you need, here are a couple ways to test:
– If you have a taller stock shield on your bike, you can place a piece of Blue Painters Masking Tape on your shield with the top edge of the tape at different heights and take a short ride to get settled into your normal riding position to make sure you can see over the tape by about 2″ looking straight ahead down the road.
– If you have a shorter stock shield on your bike, you can tape different size pieces of cardboard on your shield with Blue Painters Masking Tape and take a slow ride to get settled into our normal riding position to check the size.
Test Ride our Shield
• Your shield will come with a protective plastic film applied to both sides of the shield. Make sure to leave the plastic on the shield, mount the shield and take a short test ride, as long as you have good visibility over the shield.
• If you are not completely satisfied with the height or performance of the shield, you may return the shield for a different size or for full credit (less any shipping charges) as long as the shield is like new and the protective plastic film has not been removed.
• Take your time . . . make sure it is right. No worries if you order in the winter months and it takes until Spring to try it out.
Thank you for the new light grey 12 inch Freedom Shield for my 2015 Indian Chief. The quality is far superior than the OEM Indian windshield that I purchased when I bought the bike, and I LOVE the low profile look, the color, and the slight curvature of the top edge. After installation I took it for a long ride from Littleton, CO south on Highway 105 to Palmer Lake then back up I-25 to Castle Rock and then back home to Parker, CO. I was able to test the windshield from low street speeds and then up to 75 mph on I-25 for miles and all I can say is WOW, what a major difference!! Due to the slight “flip up curvature” on the top edge of your windshield there was no wind buffeting, nor was there any wind turbulence coming over the top and hitting me in the face. The wind was going up and then completely over the top of my head. Although I was wearing a helmet I could easily wear a ball cap and know that it would not fly off. And there is no distortion with the curvature. With this 12 inch windshield I can see right over the top which is perfect for my riding needs. As far as I am concerned you have made the ultimate windshield that every Indian Chief or Indian Vintage owner should have. In fact, your Freedom Shields should come as a standard OEM item on every Indian Motorcycle!!! Again, thank you for such a quality product for my Indian Chief!!
