Long Ride Shields (LRS) Phantom

Anyone using a Long Ride Shield Phantom ?

http://www.longrideshields.com/

I have a Cee Bailey TRSSC 15 " that Im very happy with 90% of the time, but in the cold weather I get a little more wind on my face than Id like so I was looking for taller shield for cold weather. A Cee Baile in 17 or 18" would probably do but I dont like the look of the taller Cee Bailey so I wa thinking Wind Vest and them=n I saw the LRS "Phantom" it looks like a Wind Vest design but with the ongoing weekend sale its just $ 79.00 so I thought I might give it a try.

Anyone have experience with this sheld ?

I could be mistaken, but I think that LRS only offers Road Glide shields in 7", 8", 9", and 10". I run a WindVest, which has a flip-up design. Once I got the correct height (13"), I could see over the shield without getting blasted. I'm 6ft/34" inseam and riding a 2011 RGC with stock seat and ride with a slight slouch. Its in line with my mustache. Works great in the Colorado winter cold air. What's your height/inseam?

Im 6'2" with a 34" inseam. Ride a Custom with a C&C seat that lowers me about 1.5".

Your correct that LRS only goes to 10" on the site but the qwner said he can do a 12" for me to try

I ran a 12" Windvest last summer and it was perfect for my dimensions when riding without a helmet. It was in line with my lower lip and kicked the wind right over my head perfectly. But if I wore a helmet, I got enough wind hitting the top/front of my helmet to push it back a little bit. When I switched to a 13", it was perfect when using a helmet. With your dimensions, I would recommend a 14" Windvest. I know of LRS, but have no personal experience with their shields. I just question their quality, as they are so much cheaper. Good luck...!!!
