I've heard a lot of descriptions regarding windshields, but never this one before. That's funny.

Well I think this problem was caused by low pressure which occured with some settings of the shield (not all!). The low-pressure seemed to pull the air out of my helmet when visor open. Excuse this clumsy explanation - English is not my mother tongue...

So, how tall are you? What seat are you sitting on....stock high or low, or something custom? I have similar weight and inseam, but am 5'9" tall, on a Renazco modified seat that is actually 1/2" taller than stock high.

As I wrote my height is 181 cm. Don't know what exacly this is in English measurements (something about 6'?). My Seat is a little bit higher than stock I think (maybe about 2 cm).

Maybe its that Schuberth helmet that is causing the suffocation. Think I'll steer clear of those based on your description.

Experiences with windscreens are quite individual I think....
