New From Freedom Shields - Sport Touring Model

I got some exciting news earlier this evening! Freedom Shields will be releasing a Sports Touring Model. I've been fortunate enough to see pictures of the new shield on a 2015 Road Glide and they look great!

The new shield is curvy and fits the lines of our bikes perfectly. I've had a couple of the regular FS shields now and fit, finish, quality are perfect. So if you're looking for a sporty and sexy alternative to the standard touring shield, be sure to hit up John at Freedom Shields, or even better yet visit their website.

And I have more great news...... Freedom Shields will be running a 20% off sale on Black Friday, so if you've been looking for a new windshield for your 2015 / 2016 Shark be sure to check out Freedom Shields.

Pictures of the new shield on a 2015 Road Glide will be posted in this thread shortly.

Looks pretty good. I tried to see if there's any distortion looking through it in your pix and can't see any. How is it from the seat? Have any issues looking through it? I have their 14" standard now and love it. No distortion through the recurve a all.

A.K.A OBB

The pics I provided came Freedom Shields and are not pics of the shield on my bike. So I can't speak to distortion, but knowing the quality of my two previous shields from FS I doubt that there will be any (or so minimal as to be irrelevant.).

Hopefully I'll have a sample to put on my bike in the next couple of weeks and I will provide further updates. I'm going to try the 10" ST in dark gray and see what I think of it and then will report back.

Yesterday I received the Freedom Shield 10" Sport Touring windshield in Dark Grey. I was going to wait until later this week to install it, but it looked so great that I just had to get it on the bike and snap some photos. As weather permits I'll get some photos of it on the bike out in the sunlight and provide some feedback on wind management. But I'll say that it looks fantastic on the bike, even in the garage. As long as it is even marginally better in wind management than the stock shield, this shield will be my daily driver and I'll probably keep the Freedom Shield 11" Standard shield for longer road trips. Quality is outstanding, just like the two previous Freedom Shields that I have purchased.

This shield measures approximately 3 3/4 inches from the top of the vent housing to the top of the shield. Without further delay, here's how it looks on my bike.
