Spoke with John today at Freedom Shields in Colorado. He has the windshields available, and is doing a 20% off sale thru BLACK FRIDAY! I ordered a Windvest as well, and am going to compare the two. Seems like a higher quality product than anything else I have looked at. Thicker, better optical quality, polished edges, and CHEAPER! I had ordered the Windvest already, so I will go ahead and do a comparison next week. Have a feeling I will be returning the Windvest, though. ?

here is the e mail John sent me

Hi John,


I finally have a couple of pics I can send you……this one is an 11” Dark Grey tint. The 11” is the length of the shield laying a tape measure on the front face of the shield right up the center above the vent to the top edge of the shield.



I will be doing the same sizes as our other Road Glide shields where we go every inch from 10” up to 18”.



I took a vertical measurement from the very top point of the inner fairing above where the vent hole comes out in the inner fairing to the top edge of the shield for a vertical measurement of 4” up from there.



Let me know how these look to you.



I will have them starting production on Monday and will run about 3-5 working days from the date of the order to ship.



The prices will be the same as our other Road Glide shields on our website.



Let me know how it looks to you !



Thanks John,




John Lauk

I'm assuming you are the same one that posted on the FB group. Would be nice if they posted a vertical height measurement like they do for the pre-2015. I'd like to grab one at the Black Friday price.

We need a "standard" place to measure on the new '15s like we do on the previous generation sharks. I know when I test rode a 15 CVO Ultra, the shield was just a little too tall for me. I'll have to measure it once it gets here to see what size I want to order from him.

Thanks for the pix. Just measured my CVO. Top of the radio to the top of the stock shield is 7". That would put that recurve on the FS right where it would annoy the hell out of me. I'll keep an eye our for a 13" from them.

I got my dark grey 12 inch installed and took it out for a quick ride. Great quality shield. John recommend the 12 inch shield because we are about the same height and it is perfect for me. I am 5'11" and 34 inseam.
