I got my 11” medium tint from Freedom installed yesterday and took a ride. I’m 5’10” tall. With it down I look well over the shield and get a nice bit of breeze with no buffeting at speeds under 50mph. Over 50mph I raised it about half way up and there was a very nice pocket of wind free area and Absolutely no buffeting still looking over the shield about 1 1/2”. With the shield all the way up I look through the shield about an inch under the top of shield and no wind whatsoever. Should be good for rain and the shield is not so dark it would be a problem seeing through. There is absolutely no distortion when looking through the shield which I would rarely do. Final thought. The added 2 inch Width and the recurve make a huge difference with wind management over the stock shield. Very happy with the 11” medium tint Freedom Shield and it looks fantastic on my Sandstone Smoke DH.
