Whether it’s for keeping bugs off your face or warmth in your body, a windshield has a huge impact on rider and passenger comfort. By diverting air pressure past your chest and over your helmet, a windshield adds hours of time in the saddle by reducing the fatiguing strain on your neck and arms.

Wind buffering unbearable
I read the review above about the wind noise and thought that my height of 5'7" would be short enough not to experience what he was describing. I was wrong. I don't believe anyone over 4' would be exempt from the thunderous noise this windshield creates. The noise on the top of my helmet is so loud I am unable to even hear my bike. The windshield does do the job of taking the wind pressure off your chest, but to have to listen to the wind noise is not a trade off I am willing to make. I am debating on trying the 19" but with limited supply in the dealers in my area I may not. I am 100% dissatisfied with this and hope anyone debating on purchasing this heeds this warning. Do not waste your money.

Looks great. Works okay.
I chose the 15" for two reasons. The smoke tint and the low profile look. It does a great job of reducing air pressure on the chest. My assumption was that the flanged tip would also move the wind over my helmet. Not so much. I'm 5'10" and the buffeting from this shield is almost unbearable above 40mph. Which was never the case with the shorter, smoke tint compact windshield I used to have on my 2013 Super Glide Custom. Disappointing, to say the least. Especially when considering the amazing technological achievement that is the 2018 Fat Bob. One would think as much consideration would have been given to the performance of the windshield as well. If you're going to get a windshield for your 2018 Fat Bob, and you're taller than 5'8", I would recommend going with the 19"

I received my windshield in a sealed box but could not complete the install. Parts missing were Items 1, 2 and 3. The bolts the washers and the grommets. Very disappointing that I received an incomplete kit. .
