Worth every penny for infinite airflow adjustment, seeing right over the nose, and closing it off for dust/water/rain/mud/cold on the fly.

Give or take 馃槵 super worth it hahaha. Sounds nuts I know, but I might have broken it and scratched the hell out of it by now (if it was glass) with rocks and/or branch hitting it. But if you're feeling fancy, luckily for you they make it in glass too. With kids you gotta gotta gotta have the option (up/down) or (off/on). I really want That damn Windshield wiper Kit but From what I've heard it'll scratch the hell out of glass and the hard coated poly

Why can't you see over the nose ?
I can when I open the windshield lol. The metal/glass windshields have a frame/vent thing at the bottom that reduces what you can seem when you look down over the front. The powerflip does have a small border but when you open it you have maximum visibility over the front.

Have you used one?The frame of the windshield doesn't block any more than the hood does. I don't need to see my hood,lol.

Yes the last windshield on ours had a fixed piece at the bottom and now with the powerflip I can see more when I look down the nose.

That's like saying if you put a storage box on your hood it won't block your view :ROFLMAO:

How is this blocking my view? Full glass with vents. You couldn't see more if you had no windshield.

I didn't say yours blocked your view, I said ours blocked our view.

If that is your view from where you sit (and not a picture taken from a higher vantage point) then that's awesome! I still think infinitely adjustable airflow and the ability to block off dust/rain/mud on the fly is well worth it.

That picture is sitting in the seat. I'm responding to your comment about a storage box on the hood.And no, a plastic windshield for 1000 bucks is not worth it. You were making a general statement about glass windshields as far as I could tell.

I was making a statement about fixed windshields. In my experience a fixed windshield isn't worth 5 bucks.

Thank goodness I don't ride in the areas or weather where I need a windshild. I do see where some would actually need them, only then would be a vented glass with wiper for me.

Had one, had a half one, and pitched them both....I hated them.

Nothing worse than fog, rain with sand or dust sticking etc., especially riding at night.

i love my power flip.. i bring a jug of water with me and use it to clean off the windshield at stops. I rinse the windshield as best as i can, and then use a small squeegee i carry with us to clean up the rest. Haven't seen a scratch yet shrug.. been doing this for 2 season (but we have less than 1000mi on our rig too).

Yes, I've heard good things with a flip up!

my ONLY complaint is what someone else stated earlier.. if you are puddle splashing, and hit some cold water, that windshield fogs up instantly! and will leave you driving like ace ventura while waiting for it to clear up (or you open it and get splashed with muddy water)

Boy howdy with any windshield.

I've told this story before.....

Several of us went out in the evening for a ride at the Oregon coast dunes when I and others had a full windshield. The fog came in, the weather got windy and misty, and sand started to stick.

ZERO visiblilty, we used up all the bottled water we had trying to rinse it off, only to have it come back within minutes.

I don't think I've ever had a more horrific 5 mile ride back to camp. With luck we didn't hit a tree, drop off and embankment, or in a witch eye etc....Friggin nuts!

Off they went and never looked back!

If only you could have pushed a button from inside the vehicle to flip the windshield out of your way for maximum visibility.

I agree,
That's why, now we don't run a windshield
Never run in the mud or when raining

Friggin pain in the arse
