Majority of the time I ride two which is a different ball game went went stock/Power Bonze sport/Puig Sport use the PS most of the time in the low position but the PB will be on next time we are in Spain,but looking at most of the guys on here who ride one up it’s the MRA Vario.

I’ve got the MRA. I’m around 5’10 and with the screen low, spoiler set almost highest I get a little noise on the top of the lid. Deffo not in a bubble of calm, but tolerable. I like to look over the screen not through it though, hence why I run the screen on the low setting. As you’re a bit taller you might get away with the higher setting.

I've got the puig touring screen, find it great, much better than the stock screen. Got it in the tint and use it in the low setting, I'm 5'10" ISH😎

I've just put on a Puig sport screen. seems good.

From the info I found, the Puig touring is about 3" higher on low setting than the o.e on high. That seemed far too much for me as I like to look over it (as mentioned above) and I'm only 5'7

In Spring / Autumn I use the Puig Touring light tint on low position - I am 5'11" and with HJC or Shoei Neotec helmet no buffeting, with Schubert C3 it buffets. I used to have the MRA vario, I had to have it on high to get the right effect but it made the supports and screen  rattle and flex over every bump and pothole so I went for the Puig. In the summer I use the standard screen for the added ventilation.

For cold weather I have a National Cycle - V-Stream (med size).  Only done one day trip with it, but it seems pretty good in the down pos.  I don't like looking through the screen so there is only so much improvement I can expect.  This thing is expensive (US$200+), but the build quality is excellent - a little fidgety to install.

In the warmer months, the stock screen it just fine for the little bit of time I spend on a slab.
