LRS 9 inch recurve shield for 2012 RGC

I purchased the 9 inch phantom shield from LRS and I'm getting a lot of wind noise at my ears.

I am 6 feet tall and have a 32 inch inseam. I noticed that they do not offer a taller shield for the RG.

Any ideas how to determine what I need to do from here?

Do you have any lowers, or Sancho's wings? They may help.

I dont have lowers but I read somewhere that lowers will help if when you are riding you take your arm and put it across your chest and that gets rid of the uwanted wind. I did this and it had no change.

It looks like LRS now has a 10" shield for the RG. On their site they advertise 7-9", but in the order drop down box there is a 10" as well, and I seem to recall when talking with LRS (I am still deciding on windshields) that they were making a 10" available.

Let me know if you want my 9 inch. I'm more than likely going to get a different one. this is too short for me...I think

compare the LRS to Windvest

If I have the 9 inch LRS phantom and have wind at my ears/face will going to the 12 inch windvest correct my issue?

I am 6 foot 32 inch inseam.

Thanks!

How much are you trying to reduce the wind? I have no personal experience with any WindVest, but the recurve would probably make the 12" WV behave roughly equivalently to the stock RGU shield if I'm eyeballing the height correctly from the pictures. At 6' with a 34" inseam, I replaced the stock RGU shield with an X-Large ClearView to get the direct wind blast off the top of my helmet, and I can still get the top of the helmet into the airstream if I sit very upright.
