AFX FX-41 DS Face Shield
Gold Shield looks AWESOME, scratched by BUGS.
I've had the gold shield for only 3 months, I only ride on paved roads, and unfortunately already have to replace it.
Lets start with the positive: The reflective gold front on the FX41 is an absolutely stunning visual. The gold reflective is tinted enough to never need sunglasses or the built-in light-smoke shield - however, Definitely need to change it out at dusk (even with my 4000 Lumen LED bulb, there's no way i'd ride after dusk with this visor installed).
The not so great thing about the Gold shield: It already has more than a dozen marks where road debris, bugs (yes BUGS) and other (non handling) scratches have made the need to replace it.
The scratches are small, but enough to have scraped away small holes in the Gold reflective tint/film, meaning that when there are a lot of them and its REALLY bright out, the multitude of small pinholes shine through like lasers in your eyes.
I'm glad i was wearing SOME shield, or the rocks and bugs and debris would have ended up in my face; but I've been riding for 15+ years, and this is by far the least durable reflective tint/film on a face shield I've ever owned (a DUAL SPORT face shield no less).

Bought this a few weeks ago because I have wanted it since I bought my helmet. It arrived quickly and fit right onto the helmet with no problems. It looks awesome! Visibility is actually awesome too, even when it starts to get dark out. I love it!

I wanted this shield to complement not dark enough built in sun shield. I wrote to the customer service asking which shield would be the lightest and was told to get the silver one. It turned out darker than the built in shield. Both of them together are too dark even for a sunny day.

Its ultra stylish and turns heads in the streets, however I've only had it for 3 weeks and its already getting scratched!

Great direct replacement
This is the same visor that comes with the helmet. I wish it was a bit cheaper. My stock visor got badly scratched when I had the visor down and hung my helmet on the handlebars. They bar end scratched the visor.
The installation is easy - just pull the old one straight out on each side and snap the new one in on each side.

AFX DS-41 Silver Mirrored Visor
It's a cool looking visor. Because of its shape, there are some hard angles over the nose bridge of the visor that create lines within your field of vision. Some people may not like that, but I personally am not focused on them. When looking ahead, and focusing on traffic, it's just something to get used to. Either that, or seek out a different helmet, since this is the only visor shape offered for the AFX DS-41.
I would recommend the dark smoke or the one of the mirrored visors since the internal dark smoke flip down visor is not very dark.
