The odd thing is, for people around our height (5'10" to 6') I have had many people say it works great and two or three say they wish it were a little taller. For me it works good mounted in the top holes. I do not get any buffeting but the wind noise at the top of my helmet seems louder. I’m not sure if it is louder or if its more noticeable because all other areas of the helmet are quiet?
One thing you could try (if its not perfect) is to shim the top of the bottom out a little to change the angle the wind hits it. I haven’t tried it because it works for me but maybe others have? During various shield testing I have noticed that shields with round tops tend to create more helmet buffeting than those with a slight dip in the middle or a flat top. Possibly just altering the top may help?
