AGV AX-8 DS Face Shield
The black visor on the black helmet looks great, but in comparison to any other visor I have purchased AGV is a little proud of their product for what it is.

Blocks out the sun and keeps ya lookin' cooooool.
The sun doesn't actually bother me that much, but I like having a "one way mirror" on my helmet. This visor not only keeps things comfortably visible on a sunny day (don't use this at night), but it also prevents you from being seen when you're a) checking out the spicy mamas, b) staring at someone while being bored at a light, or c) drop your bike because your shoe lace hooked onto the peg.
Lots of mud and sand have hit this visor. Wiped it off and the finish is still good on the outside. HOWEVER, this is more of a problem with the helmet, the inside of the visor gets scratched up because it scrapes the helmet when you put it up. Beware.

(for the smoke shield)
My only issue is really an issue with the helmet proper -- changing the shields sucks. I regularly do all day rides that last hours into the dark, and pulling over to switch the AGV shields (which involves two screws and washers) sounds like a great recipe for losing the connective parts.
The smoked tinting is perfect. Dark enough that sunlight, even direct, isn't too bothersome, but not too dark that shade or redwood tree forests become unnavigable.

Looks great but be careful!
Bought the smoked face shield about six months ago.
Switching between it and the clear stock shield has been easy, the shields both look good, but I have to mention one issue that is really bothering me.
The Black shield scratches like no other. I've set my helmet on my riding backpack, laying on its back on the ground next to my bike, and the helmet has rolled off the pack onto the ground from a height of no more than 7 inches. You would think that a light roll would do nothing, well you're wrong...
It has happened 3 times that I can think of and my shield looks like I dragged my face across the ground for 50 feet. I'm unhappy that at the price-point of 69.95$ the shield is not more durable.
It looks great, but you have to take extra care to make sure nothing scratches it.

Fits as advertized
The optics don't seem as good as the clear shield, but they're still pretty good. The appearance is really what we buy these things for, and it delivers.
It's just as easy to install as the stock clear shield - it takes about 30 seconds. That said, I don't like to leave it on for night rides...so I've used it sparingly.

Put the smoke on a flat black helmet. It looks like something out of Tron or the Wraith. I love it. A little dark in tunnels.

Smoke lens ... Awesome
The smoke screen is awesome and very dark and looks great. It is a lot darker than the picture shows.
