My new windscreen from Touratech the windscreen are 2"- 50 mm taller than the OEM Honda it is designed to prevent buffering on an ADV helmet
and Touratech has succeeded it is comfortable and easy to clean expensive but a good investment
the screen are also wider than the standard and do not have the two openings in the sides as the standard screen have
we have to see if it prevents moisture from penetrating into the instrument housing on a 2018-2019 AT
EDIT: the moisture inside the instrument housing has dried upp
and it is not so bad eyesight as it was before.

I've been very pleased with the Puig Touring screen at 5'9"
Hi AT community,
I have the standard model and want a better windscreen for touring.
I note that with the ’22 Adventure sport model they reduced the screen height from the ‘21 model and this looks like a much better alternative to both the almost non-existent CRF1100A/L screen and the ridiculously high ‘21 Adventure Sport screen. I’m 5’10“ and found a huge difference when I tucked my head down about 4 or so inches on the freeway - the buffeting disappeared and it was calm in that position.
My questions -
1. How are you ‘22 Adventure Sport owners finding their factory screen on the highway? Is it providing adequate shielding?
2. What alternatives have people found that work well on their standard 1100?
3. Does anyone have any experience with the WRS screens and if so - which particular model? (They seem to have 3 different sizes).
Hi! Im 185cm. Very happy with the Puig Touring screen.

I have a 2020 Standard w small screen
And I had the same challenge:

"I’m 5’10“ and found a huge difference when I tucked my head down about 4 or so inches on the freeway - the buffeting disappeared and it was calm in that position".

My solution I installed a adjustable EVO clamp on screen. Awesome unit.

I had the same solution and experience on my standard screen but i found it difficult to clean it in summer with all the flies and other insects here in the Swedish forest.
so i went for the taller Touratech windscreen it is easy to clean.
EDIT: it even solved the problem with the moisture collecting on the inside off the instrument housing on my 2019 AT 👍

I've got a '22 ATAS, I'm 5'11" and fined the OEM windscreen pretty much perfect. In the low position, I get a comfortable amount of wind at <70mph. In the high, I get enough wind protection at >=70mph speeds. It's comfortable enough I have no intentions of trying a new screen. I do enjoy it more with the seat in the low position versus the high position, however.

This picture shows how Honda have addressed the problem on the NT 1100. Those winglets are incredibly wide and combined with the much wider screen than the AT, push the airflow out past the mirror stalks and the base of your helmet - which is where the buffeting occurs IMHO (screen height is only a secondary issue).

Maynard above has it right. VStream mid model installed on my ‘22 ATAS. I’m 5’11”, and find it perfect for me. I was struggling with massive wind noise with the stock screen, in all poisons. The top flair works perfectly. I ride Highway in the middle windscreen position. Initially I thought the gray tint would be annoying and was ticked they only made low and dark, mid and smoke, and tall and clear. Now I actually prefer the light tint. After 1200 miles, I find their design to be the best out there. And the price was less than I expected. Less than $200, shipped from National. None of the usual retailers had them in stock, so I went direct

Returned a few weeks ago from an Ohio to Deadhorse, Alaska trip over 11,800 miles. I switched to the mid height VStream and found it helped considerably with the wind buffeting. I put the seat on the high position and the WS in the low position. I am 5'11".

On another similar note. I found what helped the most to help with the wind buffeting and noise around the bottom of my helmet was when I put on the Klim Storm Collar. I don't know what possessed me to buy the thing in the first place other than a way to keep heavy rain from running down my front collar by the zipper. Not only does it help keep out the rain, it keeps out the wind and keeps out the cold. It does not look like it in the picture put it has a front and back. When I first got it I thought it was a gimmick type piece. Now I won't leave home without it.
