National Cycle V-Stream Light Tint

The V-Stream mid size windscreen N20308 only comes in light tint. I prefer clear. Is there much difference between light tint and clear?

yes, there's a little difference, the tinted one looks real nice on the Stone Grey and Silvers IMO.

The tint is really light, I thought it good. However, I actually prefer the tall windshield and run it lower, I find better for turbulence.

I was hesitant at buying it as I was also wanting a clear windshield but gave it a try anyway and you can barely notice that it is tinted.

How do you get enough air on a hot day?

Thanks for the info guys. At least, I know the light tint is acceptable.

I've also got a V-Stream Sport Shield but in dark smoke, black would be more like it. If I remember right, even raised all the way up you are not looking through it.

Looks a lot better than a cut-down stock shield and plenty of air flow..... FYI.

everything is green and submarine

Isn't the V-Stream Sport Shield about the same dimensions as an OEM?

i thought it was also, but more upright, so i would think its less air.
