How to Measure the Windshield

The size is measured by laying a tape measure on the front center of the windshield from the top of the headlight cutout on the windshield up to the top edge.

Choosing a Size

Looking Over the Windshield

The ideal height is where the top edge of the windshield is level with the tip of your nose. This gives you about 2” to see over the top of the windshield when you are looking straight ahead. With this height, the wind will clear the top of your head for a comfortable and quiet ride. The taller you go the better it feels, especially for the passenger, as long as the top edge doesn’t creep up into your line of sight.

Looking Through the Windshield

The ideal height is where the top edge of the windshield is about 2″ above your line of sight.  This gives the most comfort and protection for both the rider and the passenger, but when it rains and the windshield gets wet and dirty it gets harder to see through the windshield.

Measuring Tips

–  If you have a tall windshield on your bike, you can place a piece of Blue Painters Masking Tape on your windshield with the top edge of the tape at different heights and take a short ride to get settled into your normal riding position.

–  If you have a short windshield on your bike, you can tape different size pieces of cardboard on your windshield with Blue Painters Masking Tape and take a slow ride to get settled into your normal riding position.

Test Ride our Windshield

Your windshield will come with a protective plastic film applied to both sides of the windshield. Make sure to leave the plastic on the windshield, mount the windshield and take a short test ride, as long as you have good visibility.

If you are not completely satisfied with the height or performance of the windshield, you may return the windshield for a different size or for full credit (less any shipping charges) as long as the windshield 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.

Rider Reviews

After some online research I settled on Freedom Shields.

I learned of recurve windshields from my cousin and after some online research I settled on Freedom Shields. I choose the stock height for a 2015 Switchback (16″) with Light Grey tint. Installation was quick and easy, the hole pattern was an exact match for the Harley hardware. The windshield is more substantial and a great improvement with less wind noise and turbulence than the stock unit. I recommend this, you won’t be sorry.”

The quality is outstanding, the tint is perfect,and most important…my wife loves it!

John, I spent a lot of time searching for a custom recurve windshield for my wife’s Switchback. The 13” recurved shield you made for her is perfect. It looks great going down the road, cuts the wind, and reduced her helmet buffering. The quality is outstanding, the tint is perfect,and most important…my wife loves it. Thanks again for your excellent customer service, and the superior product.

I’ve actually been asked by a couple cagers at traffic lights about it.

Can’t tell you how cool this shield looks! I’ve actually been asked by a couple cagers at traffic lights about it. The recurve is just enough to send the wind over my helmet yet at 16 inches I see perfectly over the top. I believe the extra width at the top seems to help with that issue. Plus that’s what seems to draw the attention. It’s not like the stock shield that is rounded at the top. It’s different, it’s cool!

What a difference it has made!

I absolutely love my Freedom Shields! While riding on the west coast of Florida on New Year’s day it was very windy with my stock windshield. The wind was “beating” me up and made for a not so fun ride! So when we returned home my husband said he would order me a Freedom Shields and what a difference it has made! Now on those windy days you don’t even notice! Freedom Shields rocks!!

Works better then a h-d one…

John, your Freedom Shields windshield we order works better then a h-d one that came with our Switchback. When riding the air goes over the top of our helmets and no wind buffering.
