    Touring Screen Recommended for 5’11”

    Hi CR fellows,

    I’ve been looking at a few screens to reduce wind noise. As per title, I’m not particularly tall but tend to be longer in the body and shorter in the leg (perfect combo for a bike I know!!)

    I have the adjustable slider fittings for the screen (2017 I think) so I need a screen that’s compatible. I’ve checked a PUIG that’s 150mm taller but I think I need something like GIVI D1157ST which is double the extra height.

    Can anyone advise? Or is it better to hang on until shops are open again and try for size? I’m only really riding locally at the moment anyway.

    Hi.

    Screen height vs noise/buffeting is such an individual thing that I wouldn't necessarily say that the taller the screen the better environment behind. Sadly, you have to plump for one and give it a try unless you can ride someone else's Crossie with another screen already fitted which might prove to be difficult atm.

    YMMV

    Thanks Skids.

    To be honest I thought that might be the response. I’ll take a punt.

    Cheers

    Do consider the MRA VARIO too... Ive had one on my last 3 bikes and find it great. Ive got it on my CT and it gives many options with 5 way adjustable points and also the adjustable spoiler. Also it comes in either clear or smoked finish. The smoked tint looks fab on my matt black 2019 model.

    I have the powerbronze adjusting system with Skidmarx  larger screen,  works for me you can adjust depending on what you want on the day
    A hot day adjust it so it’s low setting so you can got a good flow of air
    On wet touring day adjust it higher to deflect rain of visor
    Very flexiblle set up

    I hope this helps
