Windbender Windshields - Don't Push it... Bend it Windbender Windshield Photos

Which shield should you choose?

Your choice of shield style essentially depends on how far over the top of your shield you want to look, how tall you are, and what level of tolerance your passenger has for wind (a good fitting helmet will take care of many moderate wind issues for most passengers).

If your goal is to look over your windshield and experience the full freedom of riding with the ultimate in visibility; you'll want one of our High Performance Windshields - a Windbender HP. If you want to sometimes look over your shield and sometimes look through your shield, all in smooth relaxing comfort; like "siting in the car with the windows open" the Windbender ST (Straight Top) is for you.

I want to look well over the top of my shield.
How tall of a shield should I get?

If youi desire to look over the top of your shield all the time., get an HP or HPS. There are two exercises you should do to determine the correct windshield height. First is the 4" method. Second is the 88' method. Please see the Windbender HP page for complete descriptions.

Air lift over the HP is 6-12 inches depending on your speed and our research proves that you can comfortably ride over 100 mph with the shield four inches below your line of sight.

I sometimes want to look through my shield or my passenger needs excellent wind protection.
How tall of a shield should I get?

Our new ST (Straight Top) Windbenders have been redesigned for more dynamic airflow through the gap to provide higher air lift over the riders head.  The ST is designed to be a flexible, “do-it-all”, shield with a very smooth, buffet-free, ride at all speeds. There are two exercises you should do to determine the correct windshield height. First is the 4" method. Second is the 88' method. Please see the Windbender ST page for complete descriptions.

You can now ride comfortably with the ST set 2-4 inches below your line of sight depending on speed.  If you want a little wind in your face you can set it lower.  Because it is a straight top shield, you can also look through it at those times when you want to provide yourself or your passenger with even more protection.

The ST is now available in four sizes and two colors: 11, 13, 15, and 17 inches in clear or bronze tint.
You’ll have a full 4 inches of vertical adjustment with the Windbender rails alone, 8 inches if you utilize the GL1800 stock adjustment, 9 if you use the extra inch available in the mounting slots. Pick the size that suits your needs.

Air lift over the ST is 4-6 inches depending on your speed and our research proves that you can comfortably ride over 100 mph with the shield an inch or two inches below your line of sight.

You can have different choices for different conditions in seconds!

If your solo riding style requires you to look over the shield and your two-up riding requires the wind protection of the ST, you may want to get a second top windshield (without the base). Slide one off and slide the other on. It takes only seconds and no tools are needed.

Windbenders offer unsurpassed adjustability!

Windbenders allow an unprecedented amount of vertical adjustment. The stock windshield adjustment is retained plus we add an extra 4" of adjustment with the manual Windbender rails and 4" with our new electric option. Additionally there are slots in all top shields that offer over an inch of adjustment. You will always be able to find the "sweet-spot" with a Windbender!

We currently manufacture windshields for both the Honda GL1800 and the GL1500 Goldwings.

Windbenders are coming soon to the Harley Davidson Electra Glide and BMW GS Series!
