+1 Windbender. My wife said there's very little buffeting. Believe me, if there was I'd hear about it. Nice thing about it, is it's adjustable. I have the manual adjustment model. I leave mine down at lowest setting for me and highest setting for Deb.I have a WindBender, and a full set of Baker wings.
The WB is very adjustable. You get all your stock adjustment, plus another 2 or 3 inches. I can get the ST from under my line of vision to way over my head... The WindBender also allows you to change out the top shield very quickly to suit what kind of riding you are doing. I use the ST when my wife is aboard, and I have an HP for off highway, or hot weather solo riding. The WB is quieter than other shields I have tried, and controls rain better. It is a split-screen design, so air is directed up on the backside as well as the front. With a stock shield, the raindrops depart the shield right into my eyes. With a WindBender I can watch them shoot up over my head. I have the electric option, which I just love...
If you are a look-through guy rather than a look-over guy, The Tulsa style will give you a huge calm area, but it is huge itself, is not adjustable, and you can't look over it if it fogs up suddenly (which I have had happen..)
You mentioned keeping the wind off your wife... The other thing the will help your wife is a set of Hand Wings (at least), and the Air Wings. A lot of the bad air that pounds your wife comes in under the mirrors, so redirecting it gives a huge benefit.
As Budoka mentioned, it would be great if you could ride bikes with the different screens and / or airwings to see what works best for your wife. I know you are nowhere near Florida, but if you get down sometime you are welcome to try mine.

Can't argue with the +4. Have a good riding bud with one. I'll have to put the wife on his bike and take her down the highway with it. If she likes it, I'll have do decide if I'm OK with looking " through " a windshield all the time.Johnnie1, the F4 +4 shield has been designed for the ultimate protection for the folks who ride two up. Couple that with a full complement of Baker Air Wings for an extremely comfy ride. The F4 +2 previously mentioned was not designed to help the passenger with buffeting and mic noise as the +4 was. Ask folks who use an F4 +4, then decide.
Got my F4 +4 at Americade last year and the Wife and I LOVE IT!!! Cleans up with just vinegar/water & paper towels and this shield is crystal clear. Intercom works better due to reduced buffeting too!Johnnie1, the F4 +4 shield has been designed for the ultimate protection for the folks who ride two up.
