Which windscreen..

I really do go back and forth, cant decide what one to invest in.

I have narrowed it down to 3 options



If there were only one of those out there that existed I would choose the one from PUIG because the style it adds to the bike is ravaging. But on some pictures from the front it comes out really tall. And by choosing the darkest ones, does it block out any view?

Have been looking for any threads or posts about the one from "Ermax" but cant seem to find any opinions about it. I think it gives the bike a little more "R look" And I say that from only looking at those pictures with white backgrounds. would be different if someone owning the bike takes pictures of it (Cant seem to find any!)

The Givi windscreen I have been hearing much good things about but I think it makes the bike look less aggresive.


I would like to foremost hear your opinions about the ones from "Ermax" and "PUIG" all experiences. But If you have tried out any of those but ended up with liking the "Givi" better then I would like to hear exactly why.

Best regards

This is a 19" national cycle windscreen which I like a lot for winter riding. They also make a 16" & 21" . I also have Puig which is around 14" high. If I was going to choose a screen again I would buy a National Cycle 16" high screen. This picture is a 19" N S.

I prefferably dont like those you attach to the steering. And they are too big, I dont have the need for full screening to avoid all the wind.

In that case, I like the looks of that Givi. It's short & has a curvature .

I also have the Givi A1126 screen and like the looks of it on the bike.
I use it during warmer weather.
SportTour.com had a good price when I bought from them.

ride safely,

I live and drive in Norway So I will be driving first and foremost when its warmy outside. Tucked away in a garage during wintertime..
Really appreciate your answers by the way!

Could also post some pictures of my bike, Its all black. I professionaly painted all the not black parts black,
and because of the edges on the bike I think the PUIG screen seems more "in style" with the bike. But yes I do appreciate any answer

I have the Puig clear and like it a lot. It works great for me moves the wind from my chest up to my forehead. I don't think it looks big or tall at all. But I have clear and sometimes you don't even see it at all.

What color is your bike? Would you mind sending me a photo? And if I chose to order that screen in all black, do you think I will get an extra kind of blind spot?

Anybody looked into getting the factory windshield tinted? Either the spray or with film?
