Puig Touring Windscreen Triumph Tiger 800 / XC 2011-2015
much better than stock windscreen on tiger 800xc for tall rider
The Puig windscreen works well to reduce buffeting around the helmet. I'm 6'2" and I've got it set up now so the air is much quieter around my helmet--seems to be going just over my head now. My experience follows what earlier reviewers have indicated:
-installs easily but be careful as the screen is too easily scratched. Putting the screen in place I scratched it when it rubbed against mounting points.
-reuse the hardware from your stock screen at the points where this is possible. It's better quality than the stuff that comes with this windscreen. Especially the rubber bits.
-it may take a bit of fiddling around to get just the right height/angle, but adjustment is easy. Requires two hands though so don't try to do it without pulling over.
Overall: looks good. Works well. Just a bit too delicate and easily scratched. Recommended.

Good screen, good build, a bit too delicate.
Good build, looks, and design.
Be careful cleaning with any sort of harsh sponge, the plastic is super soft and not coated with any protectant, it will scratch very easily. Use only soft cloth to clean.
Tighten it well or it will move at high speed.

Greatly Reduces Wind Noise and Buffeting
While not as bad as other motorcycles I've owned with a windscreen, the 2015 Tiger XCx windscreen created way too much wind noise and moderate buffeting at anything above 40 mph. The wind noise at highway speeds was deafening and the buffeting for extended durations made me motion-sick. When I say the wind noise was deafening, I could hardly hear my SENA 20s turned up and even my Smart phone playing music was difficult to hear.
I've played this game of "windscreen roulette" before trying to find one that worked for me. On my previous bike it took 3 screens to finally find one that worked "best". Not perfect, but best…
What I want in a windscreen is one that smooths the air. I'm used to riding a Monster so I like having airflow which helps cool me during warmer days. I don't ride in the winter so, I'm not looking for something to keep me warm.
There are many options for the Tiger XCx. I'll be the first to admit, the windscreen not only has to do its job but it should also look good on the bike matching or enhancing the lines of the bike
The Puig was my first choice. I liked that it looked good, received positive user reviews on forums.
Installation was easy. I would caution though that you you check the pre-installed screws as the two upper screws were not even finger tight. I found this out the hard way when I took a test ride and I saw a nut fall-off.
The screen can be adjusted up or down and any position in between. Each side must be adjusted somewhat independently as there is not "bar" to ensure both sides are completely even. But the screen more or less acts as an equalizing or leveling bar.
Functionally it works really well. In its lowest position it has reduced the wind noise by at least 70 percent. Buffeting has been greatly reduced by 80 percent. In the upper positions the wind noise is still reduced but the buffeting is more prevalent. Still not as bad as stock.
In the low position, airflow is where I want it. My helmet is in clean/clear air which helps with venting and keeping me cooler. I know its working as I'm getting bug splats on the visor...

Does exactly what you'd expect.
A nice solid replacement for the oem screen. It lets you adjust the height easily, and the smoke color is really awesome.

Big improvement over original windshield
This windshield has done what I was hoping for.
The wind noise in my helmet has been reduced dramatically and I also have less wind on my shoulders.
After a four hour ride in driving rain, it also does a good job at directing the rain over my helmet.
Overall a great product and less expensive than the Triumph tall windshield.

Love this screen. Breaks the wind perfectly for me. I'm 5'9".
Love the smoke. Looks great on the bike.
Install was easy on my 2014 Tiger 800 ABS.
Shipping was super fast ... almost like, "How'd they do that?" Bugs Bunny mail.

Great for the Price
Installs as easy as they say. The hardest part was taking the old grommets out of the factory shield. Overall wasn't too bad. Took about 15-20 minutes. The shield looks great and has reduced the fluttering significantly, but hasn't eliminated it. Its adjustable, so someone like me at 6'2" can find the right position for it. For its height, it still looks very edgy and sporty. It does scratch easy. When I installed it, the end of the ratchet was rubbing on the inside of the shield while I was tighten it. When I was done, the 2" area of travel from the ratchet was scratched on the shield.

Easy installation but make sure you tighten all bolts. Lost two on the first ride. I love how this screen looks on the Tiger and how adjustable it is. It really does a good job of moving the wind off of my head. I would recommend this to anyone.
