I could be wrong but 5.6 isn't 170.7 cm?

I'm 5,5" and due to riding in the fog last weekend I rode a good few miles with my visor up and was really surprised how quiet and wind free my face was behind the OEM screen on my 2018 Tiger. Amazing how it's so different an experience for everyone.

ditto - 1.75m (5'7") and can comfortably ride all day at highway speed with visor up - OEM screen (and seat) in the high position and it allows just enough airflow to be comfortable with no buffeting even while using an Arai X4 adventure lid with peak

I am 6ft 1 inch and ride with custom ear plugs and a Schuberth C3 Pro helmet one of the quietest made. At any speed over 30 mph the noise in my ears was deafening with the stock shield on my 2019 Tiger 800. I now have a Madstad with 18 inch screen and am still playing with adjustments but the noise is mostly gone and no buffeting at all. In between shields I tried the Tiger with no shield at all and it was a massive improvement over the stock shield.

I'm also 5'10" and can ride with visor up with the screen set in the halfway position, up to about 80-90kph and then visor and down still no buffeting.

Some wise words here, on this perennial topic. My Tiger is a '16 XRT and the screen is not perfect for my 5' 10". One morning I planned a ride down to the Ace Cafe from Cambridge with my mate, on his new '19 XRT. The screen is clearly quite different.

We rode down (all on country lanes!) in a thick mist for the first 40 miles and the superiority of his screen - deflecting the mist over his head (& he's 6'); whereas I struggled to keep my visor clear. Still looking for a 2nd hand post '18 screen.

Your observations are interesting as I test rode a 2019 XCa and the wind buffeting above 6p mph was horrendous, to the point the vibration was so bad I could see where I was going and had to slow down below 60. This has put real doubt into whether I should by this model or not.

I test rode a BMW F850GS and there was no buffeting, ok theres no much screen to start with, but Id sonnet have wind blast than buffeting.

Still trying to make my mind up.

no mate - that must be a lid issue - I can comfortably ride with the chin piece (incl. visor and peak) all the way up (I know it's unsafe) on my Schuberth E1 modular at city/town speeds and often do while I'm marshalling cycling/running events
