Aeroflow shield
« on: June 29, 2014, 08:59:54 pm »
I purchased an Aeroflow windshield from a forum member and it is the best shield, bar none. I have had a Cee Bailey's, a Cal Sci, an MRA, a stocker and a V Stream. This shield is the best. I took a ride today and I forgot to put it up when I got on the highway because it was so smooth. At the lowest position, the air flow is smooth and hits me just above my visor. I have 5 inch risers and sit straight up. At full up I can see over it. I only have to put it up halfway for no wind. It doesn't interfere with my hand wings like the Cal Sci does.
I highly recommend this shield. I am done looking.
See pics. You know what is up and down.

Do you have the standard, medium or tall Aeroflow?

They have always been really popular with the beemer crowd.  Nice looking windscreen!   :great:

Do you experience back pressure.
I have tried several shields and at speeds over 65 mph I have significant pressure pushing my head forward.
If I lower the shield(s) to create forward pressure there is a lot of wind noise.
Still looking for a shield that reduces the dreaded back pressure.
Any thoughts?

I tried the large Aeroflow in the try a shield for (almost) free program (for lack of a better term, besides trust-fest) on the other forum. It had the least back pressure
of any shield I've tried. I'd say for me it was a 75%-90% reduction in back pressure over the stock screen. It also was IMO the least visibly attractive shield. I may end up with one yet but I think I want a medium if I get one. They are a bit pricey.
Not always easy to see in the pictures, but the middle between the mounting brackets has quite a curve to it and it really acts like an air scoop and brings in a lot of air behind the screen. If I rode with the shield up more often, I'd already have one, but I only raise it in the rain, or when I want to open my modular helmet front to get a drink. So I'm still experimenting with mods on the stock screen. So far no luck.

Steamer, you may want to go over there and get in line. There are two sets last time I checked, the medium set and the large set. At the time I did it the Aeroflow was only in the large set of screens.

Thanks F Marty. Will try to "get in line".
Really need to solve this problem, not only for myself, but for my wife when two up. Major complaints on the trip to Prescott.

I've been running the tall version of the AeroFlow for almost 2 years. I completely agree with the OP's statements. I run it in the full down position 90% of the time with smooth air hitting me mid chest and up. Very little back pressure. Also when combined with the Baker hand wings positioned to scoop the air in like a 61 Chevy impala, there is no backpressure at all. Just smooth cooling air. In the rain with the hand wings "closed" and the screen up you don't even need rain gear (except in an all day downpour).

There is one problem. The first one I had cracked just above the left bracket. I made some bracket extensions that are working well after several thousand miles.

 I found no "pressure" but there is a small amount of wind on the back of my helmet. I know because it comes in the vents on the rear of the helmet. I hope it won't mean rain comes in as well. Will find that out soon enough. I can't comment on how it is for a passenger.

Laker: Did the company send you a new shield? Odd that it would crack.

Taking a leap of faith and just ordered the medium today. Will report on how the shield functions.
Planning a ride first two weeks in August to Victoria BC from Lake Tahoe Ca.
Headed up central Calif, Oregon, to Winthrop Wash for a three day stay over and then to Victoria. Should give me plenty opportunity to evaluate the shield

Yes he sent me a new one after 20 questions and sending the old one back for inspection. After he agreed to replace it he opened up a bit and said mine was not the first he had to replace. He even said he may have to stop production/sales if any more cracked.

I told him that the screen was so good (imho) that he should keep selling them and that I would come up with a set of bracket extensions that I would share with him. So the first attempt at brackets failed (bent), the second set is doing well. I haven't yet shared the proven design with him, but now that its come up again I will.

I tried 3 of them on the 'free' program and ended up buying the Aeroflow Large. My wife rides with me half the time and it was the quietest and least amount of buffeting for her. The other 2 that we tried were the Cee Bailey and Cal Science larges. Unfortunately it was the largest and most expensive of the three but we can carry on a conversation at 80mph. I put the stock back on my 09 when alone and hot out.
