You have the Cee-Bailey #2 with wings, which does have a slight upward angle at the top for air deflection (you can also get the #2 without wings). There is slight disortion at the base of the curvature (near the top). They come in varying heights. I get enough wind protection with mine (#2) lowered all the way. If I do raise it, I make sure that my line of sight is not through the curvature.
Mine is stock height, and I am 6'3". Windshields are very subjective. I prefer to look over mine. If you prefer looking through yours, maybe a Cee-Bailey #1 (no curvature), or another brand may be best.
Again - very subjective - try asking the forum which tire is best, for more uniform opinions...
