• 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.
This review provided regarding my recent Freedom Shield purchase of a 15” Touring (medium tint) shield for my 2015 Road Glide Special: This simple upgrade has profoundly changed the way I feel about my bike and significantly improved ridability over long distance (average for me being around 500). To quote my initial reaction during the first test ride, “Hoeleesheeot”! Prior to this purchase, I had tested the 15” Klock Werks Pro Touring, 15” Harley Windsplitter, and 14” WindVest; none could hold a candle to the Freedom Shield. The bike; 2015 Road Glide Special, custom Corbin seat (1”lower and 1” further back), old shield was a 11.5” Klock Werks Sport Flare. The rider (me); 6ft tall, 32” inseam, 250lbs (fat adds inches in vertical butt-height). Wind management has always made long distance riding a full face helmet affair, even though I much prefer my half helmet and riding in SOCAL allows for it most of the year. Fairings with properly fitted windshields are great, but without, they simply focus and amplify wind in all the worst ways; this was the case with my old windshield. Every bug and bit of road debris was forcibly vectored to my nose and eyes. The wind noise not only prevented listening to my stereo at speeds above 40MPH, but was likely causing hearing damage. Bottom line, I had to wear a full face helmet during long rides and wipe the bugs off at every stop, not to mention the neck stretching. My new Freedom Shield changed all of that! I can now wear a half helmet with comfort, hear my stereo with clarity at 80MPH, and hear the environment around me without being blown-away by it. The wind I do feel is enjoyable and reminiscent of why I’m out on a bike to begin with. The quality of the shield is also very impressive; it is thick, well-constructed, nicely polished, and the medium tint not only looks great on my bike, but provides an excellent balance between road clarity and glare reduction. This purchase was made in preparation for a summer ride from San Diego to the Arctic Circle in Alaska and back in three weeks (many days over 500 miles in the saddle) and I believe this to be the best money spent in preparation of this epic ride. In fact, I cannot remember the last time I was this impressed by a product of any kind and so pleased with the investment. Lastly a word on customer service; superlative (good word right?). Every comment made in these reviews regarding customer service is spot-on. I did not want to go through the hassle of trying one shield after another to get the right fit, so I sent an email to Freedom Shields describing my needs and received a call from John in short order to help dial me in. We talked for a short bit, I described my needs and body/bike geometry involved, and he recommended the shield I am now reviewing; perfect fit in one try! They also have a great return policy; test it, don’t take the plastic off, and return it for refund or exchange if need be. I never write reviews like this, but the quality of the product and the company deserves a thorough review and personal thank you from me for making my riding experience so much better. THANKS!

I installed it and gave it a quick test. All I can say is you were correct the 12” is perfect. I have not removed the protective plastic yet as I want to give it a longer test ride but I do think I am going to keep it. I ran it at 80 on the highway and felt no direct wind in my face and seems to be going right over the top of my helmet. I closed all vents and it was just as good as with them all open. I could also hear the radio at 80 without having to go full volume and it remained clear with little sound distortion. One more longer test ride and I think I will be removing the plastic. I cannot wait to see what it actually looks like without the plastic. I can also see over it by about 3” or maybe a bit more. Thank you again. You are the real deal and all the comments about you and the Freedom Shields are 100% spot on. My wifes cousin has the same bike as me and has not made a purchase yet. I think you will be getting a referral purchase.

I just purchased a windscreen for my 2017 Road Glide from Freedom Shields. I sent John an e-mail with my height and inseam and asked for some assistance on a recommendation for the correct height of a windscreen. John replied within 48 hours with some very useful information and he sent his recommendation for a 15 inch windscreen. I ordered a 15 inch medium tent windshield. The day I received it, I put it on my bike and OMG what a difference it makes. I was getting my face beat to death with the factory windshield. After installing the windscreen, I went on a 120 mile ride and I couldn’t believe how much difference the new wind screen made. No more buffeting around my head, my mustache was happier, and I didn’t look like a walrus when I got off my bike. I would like to thank John for his help and direction on what height wind screen to purchase. I am extremely happy with the quality of the product and the workmanship and fit that come with the windscreen. If you don’t own one, you should because you won’t be disappointed.
Review By: Brian – Riverside, CA
ohn the shield is awesome. The top is level with the middle of my mouth so I may have been able to squeak out that extra inch. But this is doing everything that I was looking for. I get great wind protection and I can’t even get into the wind stream by stretching up in the seat so I am well covered. Thanks for all the help!
Review By: Brian – Freeland, PA
Your product is by far the BEST shield out there!! Your customer service is TOP NOTCH!! I just wanted to say that I am so glad that you produce such a quality product. I had a stock shield on my bike and at 5’7″ I was looking right at the top of it. I always slouch a little so if I sit straight up I could look over the shield, if I slouched a little lower than I was looking through the shield. That just doesn’t work for me. After a quick phone call to you to discuss the details and you set me up with the perfect shield. LOVE IT. Now the group of guys that I ride with all want one. I’m sure your phone will be busy here soon. Thanks again.
Review By: Dwight – Virginia Beach, VA
I immediately knew the OEM windshield needed to be replaced on Dusty, my new-to-me 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra. I needed more height and better deflection to reduce buffering and wind noise. I searched multiple online sources for alternatives – really liking the looks of a sport touring shield, but respecting the functional of the touring shields. I tried a 12″ Klock Werks Sport Flare and knew within two miles of the test ride that it wasn’t going to work. Back it went as quickly as it came. I read multiple positive reviews of Freedom Shields on the CVO Forum site, each rich with the rider’s functional specifications (e.g., height, inseam, wants, needs, expectations) and feedback on those evaluation characteristics. I was most impressed with Freedom Shields’ broad range of shield sizes and impeccable customer service history, so I narrowed the search to Freedom Shields. I’m 5′ 11″ with a 30″ inseam. I run a Russell Day-Long seat which puts me about 1″ higher than the stock seat. Using the measurement specifications provided on the Freedom Shields website and the redneck fitting tool of “taping a piece of cardboard to the OEM shield”, I determined that I could handle up to a 17″ shield and that a Touring model would provide the most deflection. But in looking at the pics online, that just seemed too big for Dusty…she’s sexier than that. Now I’m pretty picky about my bike add-ones and don’t really like spending money without seeing an item on or next to my bike. After several communications with John, I too was convinced this was a company looking out for my best interests. John gets that it’s difficult to visualize how a shield will look on your bike. He sent additional pics of the larger shields and encouraged me to try a few, offering to pack multiple shields in the same box to reduce shipping costs. No pressure, just well intended, seasoned guidance. Like not wanting to admit you need to move to the next larger pant size, I just couldn’t bring myself to go with the recommended 17″ shield. I decided to test two shields – a 16″ Sport Touring in Dark Grey Tint and a 16″ Touring in Light Grey Tint. Both provided excellent height coverage. The shields rise to just above my mouth, providing excellent visibility over the shield, though the clarity is so good I wouldn’t hesitate to look through the shields in a rainstorm. The airflow barely hits the top of my helmet, which I wanted in order to provide good circulation in my helmet vent system. The Touring shield provided an extra 3″-4″ more air deflection on each side, but the Sport Touring provided very good coverage for both rider and passenger. With the functional needs met it was down to looks, which the Sport Touring version won hands-down. Dusty is now even more seductive, my head no longer bobbles around, and my wife is comfy on the pillion. Win/Win/Win!

John, this windshield is outstanding. The quality isn’t matched by anyone. I installed it in January and rode the coldest part of the winter here in Va. Cuts the wind, you can hear the stereo, the tint is perfect, much thicker then the cheap stock shield. Absolutely love it…Thank You
Review By: Steve – North Chesterfield, VA
Thanks again for letting me stop by your place and helping fit the perfect windshield for my bike. At 5’5″ with 29″ inseam, the 10″ med tint turned out to be the perfect choice for my 2016 FLTRX on my Ohio to California trip. I’m giving you a “Great Big ATTA Boy” for the looks, quality, and customer service. The wind shield does a super great job, can’t be more pleased. With my stock shield, on the way to your place I had to clean bug splatter off about 3″ of the front of my helmet both nights. My radio volume had to be turned up almost all the way to point of distortion to be able to hear. After I left your place I rode across Co., down to Arches NTL. Park, across Loneliest Hwy in NV., thru Death Valley, and across Ca. mountains to my daughters house. When I left there I rode the High Deserts of California, both Saguaro NTL. Parks, angled up thru NM, across TX., up to Ok.. and Ar., to Memphis, then got on the Big Roads up thru Mo, Il, In, and home to Ohio. I could hear the radio @ little more than half volume. I didn’t clean bugs off my helmet one time after 5100 plus Miles with your shield. I knew it would make a difference, but I didn’t expect this much. Unbelievable- but true! I was so Happy- I sometimes had to sit on my hands to keep from waving to everyone as I rode! I’ve already told other riders how your windshield far surpasses the quality and value of the stock windshields. Cant say enough, except Thanks Again*
Review By: Don – Jeromesville, Ohio
Got the windshield. It looks great! I was worried the taller shield would take away from the look of the bike. It’s just the opposite! The curve of the shield exactly compliments the lines of the fairing. I can see about 4 inches over the shield and the wind goes clear over my helmet. I am very satisfied and would recommend this shield to anyone who wants the look of a shorty but the comfort of a taller shield. (12 inch shield on a 2015 RG. I’m 6’1″). Thanx John!
Review By: Luke – Henderson, NV
Just wanted to take a minute and drop you guys a quick note. I ordered an 11″ in Dark Gray for my new 2015 FLTRX. Windshield arrived this afternoon nicely packaged with a pleasant note with the invoice. Immediately went out and installed it to replace the lacking stock windshield. The first thing I noticed was how much thicker and stiffer it was than the stock shield. The fit and finish on the new shield was excellent with very minimal distortion perceived by the rider. As for the improvement, it is at least 100% better than the stock shield. The wind around the side of my head and ears is reduced dramatically and now pushes over the top of my head. I can actually close the lower vents without my head getting pushed around severely. Truly an awesome product and great service! I’ll be recommending you guys to other Road Gliders in the future. Thanks for producing such a great product that is reasonably priced and made in the USA!
Review By: Russ – Benton City, WA
After a lot of research, I decided on a Freedom Shield medium smoke tint windshield in a 13″ height for my ’15 RGU. Right up front let me tell you that I have no affiliation with Freedom Shields and I’m not getting anything in return for this review. I had emailed John at firstname.lastname@example.org and had several detailed conversations about his shields. Those of you who have spoken to John knows he practices some of the best customer service in the entire business of motorcycle accessories. He is quick to respond, either by email or phone, he is friendly and polite, he doesn’t cuss on the phone (which is nice nowadays), and he knows his product line! Anyway, soon enough my 13″ shield came in and the packing was excellent. I put it on the RGU (without removing the very nice protective coating on the shield), and took it for a long spin with the wife on board. I’m 6′ even with a 33″ inseam. Patty is 5’6″. We soon found out that at 55mph and beyond, the 13″ didn’t offer enough of a wind “envelope” for us, so sadly I had to write John and tell him I wanted to return the 13″ in favor of a 15″, and here’s how I arrived at that decision: Freedom Shields 13″ shield is 3/4″ less high than the OEM shield (when measured from the driver’s side of the shield) from the top of the vent to the top of the shield. That is to say, the OEM shield is 6″ above the vent, whereas John’s was 5-1/4″. I thought that would be ok, but it wasn’t – it was just too low for us. Then, John’s 14″ shield is the same height as the OEM shield and his 15″ is 3/4″ higher than the stock shield. I just wasn’t sure that the stock height would provide enough wind protection after seeing that the 13″ was way to little wind protection (again, for us), so after talking to John on the phone, I ordered the 15″. But before I called him I cut a piece of paper and taped it to the front of the stock shield so it stuck up 3/4″ higher to simulate the height of a 15″ Freedom Shield. Then I took it for a ride to see if the height would bother me. It didn’t and I still could look over it easily, so I knew I was set. John was great about the swap out and I received my new shield from him today. Again, it was expertly packaged and protectively wrapped. I put it on the bike and took her for a spin, again without removing the protective shield film. It’s just a tad high, but it’s not in my line of sight unless I’m going downhill or over the crest of a hill. On level ground or going downhill, I have plenty of “look-over” visibility, and the medium tint will be great for looks but not so dark as to make night driving scary. And the wind “envelope” and overall protection is right were I wanted it to be! The fit and finish of the Freedom Shield is top notch, first rate. The edges are extremely well cut and polished to a mirror finish. The shield is beautiful to look and and look thru when you need to.

Hi John, my name is Kenny and some friends and I met with you on Saturday at your facility to pick the 13″ shield for my 2015 Road Glide I had ordered earlier in the week. It was great to meet you in person and I appreciated you taking the time to show us around. I have put about 600 miles on the shield and am very happy with it. It is a big improvement over the 12.5″ windsplitter it replaced. Thank you for the great product and service. Here is a pic of the shield installed at your facility.
Review By: Kenny – Junction City , KS
Hi John, it’s been a few months since we chatted… but I just want to let you know how much I love the 15″ Freedom Shield in medium you sold me for my 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra. I didn’t want to really comment as to the functionality until I had a chance to really give it a workout, well this last weekend we went on a 4 day 1,600 mile ride through Southern Utah and Northern Arizona in every riding condition imaginable (except wet conditions). Absolutely perfect in every way, no adverse effects at all and the sizing is just right. I’m 6′ 2″ and even at high speeds I get just a gentle breeze at eye level which is exactly what I wanted. Enough to enjoy the smells of the outdoors and feel that you are riding a motorcycle, but zero buffeting and no rider fatigue from the wind and the bugs either die happy on the shield or flip up over my head in the slipstream. And let’s not forget it is a really great looking shield and follows the lines in the spirit of the HD styling. I’m thrilled with my purchase and the fast service and when it’s time to buy another you have my business. Great job, fantastic product.
Review By: Lance – Victorville, CA
I wanted to thank you for the new shield. I also want to thank you for taking care of my order and shipping to me so quickly. I had a last minute opportunity to ride my new Road Glide for a business trip of 800 miles. I had bought Harley’s 15” Windsplitter the day I got the new Glide. But unfortunately Rushmore vents and all, it seemed to channel the air up past my ears and the noise was deafening. It worked great up to 40 mph but the noise was bad past that speed. It also has enough contours that the distortion they created was pretty bad. Complete waste of money. So I knew that I would never be able to make the ride without a much better shield. Since the trip came up on such short notice it was great of you to help me get the shield in just a few days. Thanks again for your service. The new shield made the trip much more enjoyable. I had been looking around for a replacement and had read about your windshields on several forums. For reference, I am 6’ 0” with a 32” inseam and running the stock seat, I bought your 15” with the medium tint based on our discussion. I see well over it and it would have worked for me even if it was an inch taller. It is a quality piece, fit perfectly, looks nice on the bike, has a nice polished edge and is visually near perfect. Very little distortion, I can even see through the lip on top without any distortion. The medium tint is nice and works for me in all types of riding. The shield cut the wind noise tremendously. The shield helps the BSR a lot also. It creates a nice pocket for the passenger. I still get a lot of air from around the tank but plan to add fairing lowers in the future since I tend to run a bit longer distances. Once I do, I expect this shield to complement the set up perfectly, minimizing air and noise. Again thank you for the quality product and great service.

John, All I can say is DAMN!!!. This thing is awesome. I received the 14″ Med Smoke Touring today and proceeded to put it on right away. I ride 153 miles a day and was getting beat by the stock worthless shield. Put it on and took it for a short ride at all speeds (up to 90 MPH) could hear the radio (First time at highway speeds) and no head buffeting. I was really impressed with the re-curve and NO distortion. I’m a short stocky fella 5’7″ and your instructions on fitment was right on. I will be recommending you to all my Road Glide Buddies for sure. Thanks
Review By: Chris – Allen, TX
John I have been back home for about 10 days now and have had a chance to go for a couple of rides now with the new shield on the bike. This 16 “touring shield is hands down the best shield I have had the pleasure of sitting behind. It comes up to somewhere around my mouth or just beneath my nose. Either way I see over it without even trying. I would have to hunch over to have to look through it. Like I had said I have a very long back for someone that is 6’. Comfort on the road is an understatement. I just love it! The main air blast clears the top of my helmet by 2 or 3 inches. My wife liked it on the back of the bike as well. With the total lack of any buffeting it will extend the time I can spend on the bike due to my neck problems and prior operations on the disks in my neck.
Review By: Doug – Alberta Canada
Received a 16” medium tint on Friday; installed and went for a quick test ride. Immediately knew I liked it. On a chilly and cloudy Saturday my wife and I went on a ride and I was so much more comfortable. The wind was much less on my head and despite the weather, it was a very comfortable ride. On a better Sunday, with half helmets, we were able to enjoy the radio while tooling around on two lane roads. Very impressed. Thank you.
Review By: Chris – Columbia, MO
I heard about “Freedom” Shields on the RoadGlide.org forum. They are one of the few companies that actually make a true Touring windshield for the 2016 FLTRU. From my first contact with the company on, I knew that Customer Service was high on their priority list. As I live in Canada… returning an item was going to be an issue if needed but I was confident enough to place the order. I ordered the 15″ Touring Air-Curve Light Tint shield. It arrived in the mail perfectly preserved and pristine. The installation was a breeze and the fit was excellent. I did (as others had done) test ride the shield before removing the protective layers. The stock 14″ shield on the bike was problematic. I am 5’11” with a 32″ inseam. I looked over the stock shield by a good 2-3″ and the wind struck just above the helmet visor. My wife on the other hand is 5’6″ and was getting blasted right in the face. She commented it was like being a “Bobble Head” due to the wind. The 15″ Freedom shield raised the air flow a good 3″ from stock. It reduced side buffeting and quietened the cockpit noise significantly. My wife no longer got wind blast and indicated that the wind just now grazed the top of her visor. All in all… very happy. I was worried about the maintenance of the shield but after emailing John, I was confident that what I was using would not damage the shield. I have cleaned the shield of bugs several times now and am confident it will last for many, many years. The Freedom Shield is by far Heads and Shoulders above the quality of the stock shield and I would recommend their shields to anyone looking for a superior product. My wife and I could not be happier. . . . . Well done 🙂
Review By: Steve – Ontario, Canada
I received the windshield yesterday, placed it on and took the bike for a spin. For me the height of the windshield is level with my chin, maybe a bit lower than is optimal but the wind is deflected up to just barely hit my head. Since getting this bike I had been unable to wear my half helmet and goggles because of the wind buffeting being so bad the goggles would move around making it impossible to see anything once I got over 45 mph, with this windshield I have no problems at all with that. I was able to hear the radio for the first time over 35 mph. When I took the windshield back off to remove the protective cover is when I first held both the Freedom Shields and the stock windshields at the same time. I am really surprised at how flimsy the stock is compared to the Freedom Shields windshield. Installation was easy, it fits perfectly. I do notice a very slight distortion at the curve, but it is only noticeable when driving and you have to be watching the same crack in the road as you approach it while it passes through the windshield line of sight. When I bought the bike I looked into the windshields that HD makes, and the 15 inch Windsplitter was available at the dealership for a demo ride. With that windshield the wind came straight over the top of the windshield and hit me square in the face, still had the problem where all I could hear was the roar of the wind. With the Freedom Shields 15 inch windshield the wind goes just over my head, and I can hear what is going on around me or the radio if I choose. It is great to be able to hear something besides the wind when riding. I almost got the 16 inch, and until this windshield arrived I was second guessing myself if I had made a mistake in ordering the wrong size. While it looks like I would still be able to see over a 16 inch option the Air Curve design makes all the difference in the world, the 15 is working perfectly for me. Overall this is a well made windshield of higher quality than the more expensive options I have looked into at other places, it looks great, and the Air Curve design is all that it is advertised to be.
Review By: Michael – Harlem, GA
Is there enough space? I ordered the 2015-16 Road Glide Touring windshield for my 2016 RG Ultra, Excellent quality, but I wanted something a little more sporty. So I asked John if he had a sportier one. He said “No”. I suggested that he might be missing out on a market, he said he had thought of that. I said please let me know when you have one available. He immediately said, “Give me about a week and I’ll see what I can come up with” No problem there. True to his word, I got an email in about a week, with a photo of the new Sport model, and all I could say was ship it to me. It arrived, I put it on the bike, leaving the plastic wrap on it so I could send it back if I needed. I went out for a test ride, found a secluded spot, and ran up to 95 mph, radio at about 75% and hearing it loud and clear, and I was enveloped in a ”bubble’ area with no wind, or noise. Well of course the wife wanted a test ride too on the back, she loved it, and the plastic wrap came off. Now what other company would make a windshield at your suggestion? Great relationship with Freedom Shields and John Lauk. No, I didn’t get the shield for free. Yes, I shopped around but nothing compares to this. I would highly recommend at least trying the shield. You can’t go wrong with the sales, and customer service at Freedom Shields
Review By: Dan – Bartlett, TN
Hi John, I’ve been able to put about a thousand miles on my ’15 CVO Road Glide 14″ Medium tint windshield so I can now give a review. Fit and finish, tint, optics and aerodynamics are all excellent and for me (5′ 11″, 34″ inseam jeans), perfect! I was very happy with the stock 14″ windshield but got a couple of serious rock chips on the road. With the slight recurve of the Freedom Shield, the same size gives 2-3″ more and very smooth wind protection. The medium tint and shape look great without any optical issues, especially at night. Thanks for a wonderful product!
Review By: Greg – Santa Monica, CA
John, Got my shield the other day and installed it tonight. Let’s just say that I’m totally thrilled and amazed by it. This is my 3rd HD and the previous two I had recurves on them also. An ’02 Batwing and an ’11 CVORGU. I was very hesitant at first to go with a 14″ on my ’15 CVORGU because the stock shield measured the same. The recurve on yours works as I expected and I’m glad I didn’t go with the 13″ like I originally planned. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DISTORTION in your product!! I tried every which way to find it and I couldn’t. I could have got with a 15″ and had no problem with that but personal preference, the taller the shield, the more it takes away from the bike and looks like a billboard (insert Madstad visual here and you understand). I also like the light grey. Just enough tint to give it a nice look without making the shield look huge like a dark tint does. The lines flow great with the bike also. Thanks again and trust me when I will be pushing your product on every bike forum I’m on.
Review By: Mike – Canton, OH
John! Holy crap! I wasn’t even going 10 mph and knew this was the windshield I need! Not only does it keep me from getting wind beat, I can hear the radio! Already have 800 miles with it, and going for a lot more! Here are some pics, doesnt she look awesome! At the Harley Museum Bike night yesterday a few people took pics of her, and 2 asked about the Freedom Shield! I gave them contact info, hope you hear from them soon! I really like how your product protects me, at 100mph I can still hear the radio lmfao!
Review By: Gene – Milwaukee, WI
Hello John, I just wanted to say thank you again for the great windshield. My wife and I just got back from a 10 day trip and we must say the windshield was THE best addition to our bike. I couldn’t have asked for a better one! Here are some pictures of my 13″ shield on my Road Glide as promised.
Review By: Gatlin – Crestview, FL
Bought my shield for my 2015 Road Glide about a month before this was taken. Read a review from another customer about his and ordered the same height shield for mine as we are similar in riding stature.Tested around town for about a week before I removed the plastic. Rode to North Carolina and back, with an air cushion that lifted me up about another inch and even at that rise the windshield kept the brunt of bugs off of my face and onto my helmets. I don’t think I’ll buy a shield anywhere else from here on out! Great to talk to on the phone and great customer service.
Review By: John – Northglenn, CO
John, I received the 13″ light gray tint shield for our 2015 Road Glide CVO last week. Finally on Friday evening I had a chance to install it and the rain had stopped and roads dried off so we took it for a short test run with the plastic wrap still in place. What a difference!!! I still see over the shield but the wind and noise is greatly reduced and wife is happy. So, I unwrapped it and it is installed permanently. Still haven’t had a chance to test it out on a longer ride but I’m sure it will be great. I’m very impressed with the overall quality and the superbly finished edges.
Review By: Paul – Quincy, IL
Hi John Got the shield on Tuesday as promised. It installed like a dream and looks great. The trip to Leesburg Bikefest was a great success with the new shield. Its Florida’s Spring Love Bug Season so the shield most definitely took some punishment with smashed Love Bugs all over it. Better it than my face! A little water and a microfiber towel and good as new. The shield performed just as advertised allowing more air flow over the helmet and quieter air for the rider. It was refreshing to be able to hear the radio without running full volume and being able to hear my passenger better. For those reading the other comments and not paying attention to your recommended sizing ideas, I strongly recommend folks use the sizing tricks you listed with the cardboard. I’m 5’9″ and in reading some of the posts, some could think I should have gone with shorter than a 14 inch shield. However, I have a long torso so I made sure to follow the cardboard trick. 14 inch is dead on for me leaving plenty of unobstructed view over the shield. At night, I raise my smoked visor up on the helmet and just ride with my prescription glasses. Prior to this shield, they would bounce all over the place at speed. With the shield, they were perfectly still. Couldn’t be happier. Chances are you’ll see some more orders as one of my riding buddies with the same year RG loved the look. So did others at the fest.
