Touring Windscreen "Extreme" by Wunderlich
« on: February 22, 2019, 11:57:35 AM »
For my 185cm, the windscreen is too small. The wind is directed directly to my forehead. I will ad a spoiler to solve this problem.
For shorter Riders, the screen works great.



Shift down and take them all

Hi Alpenjäger! I'm pretty new to biking but have recently bought the same screen to reduce the wind noise. I'm the same height as you so have the same problem with the wind being deflected straight into my head. Did adding a spoiler solve the problem for you? What spoiler did you go for?

I bought the Spoiler from Wunderlich: VARIO-ERGO 3D
It works fine up to 150kmh.

Hi
For my 172 cm, f850GS standard, standard seat, shoei neotec   1
Windscreen extreme :
Protection ok but
More noise around my head than with OEM windscreen
(Turbulence noise i think)
I’ll try the spoiler Wunderlich later

I’ve found that a smaller screen seems to be better on these bikes than a a taller one.  I have the madstad bracket and MRA vario screen with a spoiler on my F750GS and it’s tolerable but still some buffeting on all but the calmest days. My F850GS just has the stock screen with an MRA spoiler on it and has less buffeting but less weather protection  :001:

Well this is disappointing. Was looking forward to getting this windscreen as it has the side deflectors. Perhaps the side deflectors are causing the turbulence?

Hi MerMer

This windscreen has a very good wind protection on the upper body and on the side.
I feel the wind right at the level of the eyes.  -> driving at 120km / h with only the sun visor is not a Problem.

the fault that I find is the noise of turbulence. Ear plugs or spoiler (not tested) required to stop the noise

Ok, so then its only the noise, but not the wind hitting your helmet. As currently with the stock screen the wind hitting my helmet makes me feel like a babble head once I'm faster than like 110km/h (didn’t have this problem on my naked bike). My helmet (HJC RPHA Max EVO) shakes side to side very hard once I go to about 130km/h. The noise with earplugs is not bad even like this. So maybe this screen with the additional spoiler on top might be good. I will wait and see if anyone updates on how it works with the spoiler.

I do not drive according to the signs, but according to my feelings on the road. With the extreme Windscreen, I drive about 20 km / h faster

I like the style of the Wunderlich screen and might consider one in the future. I decided to try the Touratech Evo spoiler on the OEM screen on my GSA and found it to be a big improvement. I'm 6'-1", I kept adjusting until I found what I decided to be a sweet spot, the made a run up to 105/mph. While not a comfotable speed for me, It felt good all the way up there and with very little buffering , and no head bobble at all. I would recommend the spoiler no matter which  screen it were mounted on.
