Our new Durashield is polishable but can scratch. We always recommend plastic safe cleaner for all our shields, or just plain old soap and water. Nothing with alcohol or ammonia in the cleaner is good for the shield. It will damage it. Using a Microfiber cloth while cleaning will help prevent scratching as well.

Lee,

What was the final verdict on this Quantum vs Taka run?

It cannot be this subjective...can it?

There's gotta be a consensus of which shield blows the most amount of air over your helmet; the one that promotes the least amount of noise and turbulence on the side of your helmet.

How can that be an impossible thing to measure, or even feel?

If I had to take a gamble on a windshield, I would GUESS that the taka or the Klock Werks are the most effective. I had flared-tip shields on other bike and they worked best. There are alway those huge ones but you gotta look 'through' them.

I bet the Madstad and the Windbender work also, but the air that comes under the shield lowering the upper part air-flow pressure couldn't possibly be good on cold mornings. I rode a shield with that vent-hole in the middle (but no vents) in a cold day and that was not good. I imagine that air coming from under the shield is even worse.

That's it, I am buying a car...NOT!
