Works OK but is scratching
I like having the smoke visor on the helmet when it is needed. It flips down easily and stows out of the way when not needed. The only problem I'm having with it is that the clear visor is getting scratched where the lower edge of the smoke visor contacts it. For that reason I took it off and am trying other options for now.

I would not have bought the AFX helmet without the tinted face shield. It gives the helmet a totally different look and there is a good vid on YouTube already showcasing the look. Just search for the helmet and it comes up in the top 5

Its adds the perfect look that I wanted for the helmet. Easy enough to replace. Nice and dark. Clear vision.

Dark Smoke Sun Shield
I got the dark smoke sun sheild. I like it so far. Great for early morning canyon rides when you are in and out of dark shade and bright sun, no messing with sunglasses. Mine has a bit of distortion but not enuff to make it unusable - for the price it's good

Just like the original
The replacement shields are just like the original. They fit well and arrived scratch free. I like the look of the mirror finish as well as the dark smoke.

Same functionality as an internal shield with easier replacement
This is an awesome little piece of gear. It offers the same functionality of an internal sunshield with the added benefit of easier removal and a greater selection of colors. I got the gold mirror color and it has the perfect level of tint to provide good visibility without being too light. It is more of an oil-slick/rainbow color which was a nice surprise and it looks very sharp on my white DS-39. (see attached picture for example)
The only "con" I can think of is the inability to use the half shield on its own without the standard full shield. The way the outer shield is designed to fit over the full shield makes it too big to stay in place alone. This isn't what the shield is designed for but it was a cool idea I had when I got it and in no way detracts from the intended functionality.

Ken Z: I sometimes am still riding after dark. Need something that flips out of the way. Sunglasses don't fit right I side the helmet.Apr 18, 2014
Bret A S: I chose this external half shield to use on my AFX DS-39 helmet. I wear glasses, and it's a pain to have to try to switch to sunglasses when the sun comes out. With this shield, I should be able to just flip it down when needed for the extra shading.Apr 7, 2014
Francois P: For my FX-39 for those sunny days, I already have glases all day, it's esaier to just have this on the helmet than stop and change glasses, cost less also...Mar 3, 2014
Brandon C: TIred of breaking sunglasses trying ti fit them under my helmet.Nov 20, 2013
richard s asked:can this product be used with the " AFX FX-39 DS Helmet Double Lens Shield" at the same time?? with the half sun shield on top of the double lens shield??
Brandon F:I am unsure, as I don't own the heated Double Lens Shield myself. It depends on if that faceshield protrudes out any further than the stock faceshield the helmet comes with. It's a tight fit between the original faceshield and the Outer Sun Shield, which, to answer your question, does go on top/over the primary faceshield. They don't rub or anything, but IF the heated shield sticks out further than the stock shield, they MAY interfere with the movement of each other. I have the Fly Trekker (Which is the same as the AFX FX-39. They are both made by the same manufacturer, an outfit called Western Power Sports. I've owned both helmets). Installation is easy, just remove screws for faceshield and slide the outer shield, under the plastic sunvisor, onto the same pivot point as the primary shield and reinstall screws. Takes 5 min. I only recently received it and haven't found the time to ride since installing it, so I can't speak to it's road worthiness/performance, although I don't anticipate an issues. My only "complaint", which really can't be avoided by design (therefore is not a design flaw or oversight on WPS's part), is that because it's on the outside, you can't lower the outer sun shield independently, unlike helmets with sun shields on the inside of the faceshield. A minor issue, at best. All-in-all, I'm very pleased with WPS/AFX/Fly's products and I'm sure this nice add-on will perform as well as I've come to expect from them. So far, good fit, good function. Well worth the $20 or so I spent on it. --BTF, Denham Springs, LADec 12, 2013
