Puig Touring Windscreen Triumph Tiger 800 / XC 2011-2014
Functional & Stylish
Works great to remove buffeting I had with both OEM shields (original and high). Not too tall to inhibit sight. Smoke color looks great, not too dark or too light. Installation is simple. Also very easy to adjust the shield angle. Finally, it fits the form of the bike and looks better than other shields.

2013 Triumph Tiger 800XC-Puig Touring wind screen with optional clip on visor
I had already tried to modify the stock screen with other clip on/ adhesive accessories without any luck. It was just too short for my height. 6 ft 1 in. 34 inseam. This new touring windscreen with the optional clip on visor is the perfect set up for this bike. It still allows me to look over the screen with the suggested 50 foot clear view to the road surface ahead. I'd guess I can see the road 25-30 feet ahead without looking through the screen. There is some air that sneaks past the right and left sides of the screen, but it doesn't hit my helmet and only adds air on my upper arms and shoulders. Which is perfect for me. If I want no air on me, I drive the cage. I also got a chance to use the screen in the rain. It did a great job of allowing the rain to go mostly over my helmet. some splashed back but hey, it was raining. No rain = drive the cage! Using the variable height adjustment, it only took 2 small adjustments to find what works for me. I'd say about 60 degree angle. maybe a little more. the only downside to this screen is that the adjustment handles must be very tight in strong headwinds to keep the screen from slipping down. The headwinds we were caught in were 35-45 MPH gusting to 50. At 65 MPH, that is air hitting the screen at about 100-110 MPH. The screen does have some flex in it as it is kind of tall and lean on the sides. But that never changed mounting bolt tightness or affected the screen in any way. I now have over 1000 miles on it and it just plain Works! The last benefit is that I was able to ride about 500 miles with barely a bug on the face shield. The screen did pretty good too. Using a great non-abrasive acrylic cleaner/polish (Brillianize)_ keeps the screen slippery keeping bugs from committing suicide and rain collects a lot less.

Good quality, easy to install, looks great on the bike
I ordered a Puig touring screen for my Tiger 800 road. RevZilla's shipping was absurdly fast ("What's this box here on my doorstep? It couldn't be my windscreen already, could it? Wow, I only ordered it two days ago!") The quality of the Puig unit was good, installation was easy (hint: reuse every bolt and rubber washer assembly from the OEM screen to replace the parts Puig provides) and style and the light smoke color look great on the bike.

Better than OEM
Definitely an upgrade from the OEM. The install is very simple and fast. It will take a couple rides to get the adjustment right depending on your height, etc. I thought just putting it on the highest setting would be the best but It actually was not, so don't fret if it doesn't feel right the first ride.

size, looks, function & mounting system all great
I have not put many miles on behind this screen but the one's I've logged were in 30 deg temps. I'm 5'8" with the seat in the lower position and the screen in it's lowest position it pushes air about 2" over my brow, which is about 1" higher than the stock screen. It also takes much of the wind pressure off your shoulders. I can't comment on the noise level for I was heavily dressed but the buffeting was minimal. Buffeting increased in the taller settings but also does the protection. There are two other screens for this bike that offer better wind management but are considerately more expensive and larger. The XC is a mid size ADV bike not a touring machine, larger screens take away from it's intended purpose. The height adjuster are well made and out of the way and it's mounting system is solid. Also it really adds to the looks of the bike.

Keep the look. add functionality
Picked up my puig smoke windscreen yesterday. Super easy to install (I did it in the UPS store parking lot) in a bout 10 minutes.
At first the screen looks huge compared to OEM, but it does look very good. (my bike is a Triumph Tiger xc phantom black). The adjustability works very well. I started out at the lowest setting, then went up about an inch and PERFECT.
Later on in the day the temperature dipped from +35 C to +7 C, I put the screen in the full up position and it provided great protection.
