2018 XC Windshield - Givi vs. Puig?
« on: February 11, 2019, 02:56:50 PM »
Hi Guys,

I know you will say "get Madstad", but I don't want to spend 300USD. I need something cheaper and I found two:

Givi:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/GIVI-D6413ST-Specific-Windshield-Clear-for-Triumph-Tiger-800-XC-XR-2018/11019917799

Puig:
https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/puig-touring-screen-triumph-tiger-800-2018

Any ideas which one should I get, which one is better? Givi is 3.5cm higher, Puig looks better and I don't know why but convinces me more. Both seem to have different shape. What are your thoughts?

Thanks!

I have the Puig tinted. I really havent used it much yet, but the few things Ive noticed are it is better than the original, wont get the tinted one again ( more difficult to see up close on dirt roads), still a lot of wind on shoulders @ highway speed, and windshield slant is adjustable. Couldnt tell if Givi has slant adjustment or not. Havent played with the slant adjustment yet, but hope to have highway & off-road settings. I may be a little spoiled on the wind I expected, because I also have Triumph Trophy, the wind  on the two is like night & day.

What do you mean by adjustable slant? I am trying to figure it out based on photos and specs from manufacturer's website but can't see it. Aerodynamic test/specs of this Puig windscreen looks great, it that is true...

The adjustable slant is the windshield pivots about its base back & forth parallel to the bike. This allows an adjustment from vertical to about 15 or 20 degrees leaning back toward the rider. The wind is much better than the original, but not near as good as my Trophy.

Another option to consider lewalt is the givi airflow. It's adjustable so you aren't fixed in having a barn door up front.

The topicstarter is asking an opinion about 2 different windscreens for the 2018 model... The only adjustment of the screen is up and down and there is no Givi airflow screen for the 2018 model...
