Freedom, LRS or Windvest

Looking into getting a new 12 in windshield. I currently have a 14in windvest for long rides but I hate looking through a windshield. I'm 5'11 riding in a stock seat. What's the pros/cons of the 3 listed in title.
btw, if anyone has a 12in for sale hit me up.

I got a windvest and like it. It's personal preference. I don't think you can really narrow it down to pros and cons. It comes down to what you like in a windshield.

Yeah, you're right. I like the wind vest I have it's just too tall. I guess my question more than anything is the LRS comparable in Wind management and quality to the windvest and freedom? The price is a good bit cheaper on the lrs

Freedom is better quality than LRS. I have no experience with Windvest.

5' 9", stock seat. Have 11" LRS on my 15 RGS. Very happy with it. I can't speak for the other two.

Freedom vote here

I'm 5'7 and had a 12 inch Freedom on my '17, and now my '18. The obvious advantage with Freedom is you can try it and if you want to go higher or lower, you can (I started with a 10, tried an 11, ended with a 12).. The quality is excellent

No complaints with my LRS. Had one on my Heritage as well as on my RGS now.
Customer service is the best!
Love the quality for the price, cant beat it.
Good luck

I have a Klock Werks 14" Sprotsflair

Dig everything about the Sportsflair but the only thing is this windshield dosen't work with my 16" apes

My bars hit turning hard left or right and you can't lock the neck

I also have two LRS Stingrays

I have a 10" dark tint and a medium tint 13"

I personally like the LRS shields

You certainly can't beat LRS's pricing

On my sig pic I have my 13" medium tint Stingray mounted up

Good Luck
