12 inch Long Ride Shields Stingray Dark Tint review
Hey all, purchased a Long Ride Shields 12 inch Stingray and figured I would post a review of what I thought. Im 6'3" with a 32 or 34 inseam. So ive got a long torso. I have the stock seat to boot.
First, I bought this for my 15 RGS to replace the stock shield. I was looking at quite a few different ones but i the end went with the LRS because of the cheap intro price. 84$ and like 102 with shipping. Figured since it was half of what most others cost, wouldnt matter to me much if I didnt like it. But anythings better than the stock shield.
Construction is just fine as according to thickness, its the same as stock. I only got to take it for a breif test ride, maybe 10 miles, which 90% of it I had a very strong cross wind. So i cant give a completely accurate review on the performance just yet. I did notice however, the air was being pushed much higher than stock, as expected, probably to the top of my forhead. The weather is supposed to warm up again this weekend so im hoping to get out and give it a good trial then, and will report my findings.
Until then, I took a few pictures so everyone can see how it looks. I have to add, the pictures do make it look very touring like and not as flattering as one would be hoping for. I was originaly going to but a KW 14 inch sport because I loved how it looked, but went with this instead. Im very happy with the way it looks, and happy I pulled the trigger on it.
