Why would I choose to order a tinted Clearview Shield?

If you like wearing sunglasses, you might like a tinted windshield!

Adding a tint to your aftermarket custom design ClearView Shield offers a variety of benefits. Not only can a tint look aesthetically appealing, matching your bike’s design, but it can provide protection for both you and your bike.

A lightly tinted shield can cut down on daytime glare and headlight glare at night, allowing a better visual of the road ahead. ClearView Shields tinted windshields have additional UV inhibiting properties, just like a good pair of sunglasses. UV inhibitors in a tinted shield mainly function to protect the plastic from breaking down, prolonging the life of the shield. But, they also offer additional protection for your bike. The UV inhibitors help to prevent sun damage and fading of your dash. They also help to protect your GPS and radar devices.
