New 15 inch freedom shield arrived

Just put it on. Too cold to ride here but would love to try it out. Maybe I should I get the same one but 12 inches for the summer?

Rode a but yesterday to grab some pupusas in Manasses and feels like majority of the wind is being blocked. I like it so far. A bit blurry but ok

Great quality shield , I originally bought a 13 inch and it was in my line of sight exchanged it for a 12 inch and it's perfect for me at 6 feet tall with a 32 inseam.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

I'm 6' , 32" inseam. I run a 13" Freedom and a Corbin dual tour seat. I'm looking way over the shield, but don't get any wind. I had a 14" LRS on my 09, but John recommended a 13" for my Rushmore. Call him, he'll set you up.

I just received my Freedom Shield and went for a ride. Liked the better protection so I decided to take off the protection plastic. WOW, it was like looking through a magnifying glass. The distortion from looking above and then through is quite substantial. Is this typical?

I'm looking over my 13" Freedom 95% of the time, but I don't notice distortion when I'm occasionally looking through it.
