DARK SMOKE Shield for my AGV GT Veloce TXT
I wanted to replace the clear visor on my helmet. No one around here sells this helmet or shields for it. After reading reviews I pulled the trigger and bought it. I am VERY happy with it quite honestly. It looks darker than what it is but that is a benefit (for me anyway). During the day it provides great protection from the sun and even on those cloudy but BRIGHT days, it does the trick. I also took it out last night (I know it says day time use only) and it is very manageable. Benefit is it is really easy to swap visors back to the clear for night riding...

DO NOT BUY HELMET OR SHIELDS - They will both fall apart eventually
I have owned two 2014 COrsa Winter Test helmets. One was a replacement for a crashed helmet (it did it's job and I am fine, thanks for asking).
All I can say about the helmet and the shields is don't buy them.
Both have had parts break - especially the shields. The shields are attached to metal parts by small screws. The polycarbonate shields are brittle and inevitably the areas where the screws penetrate the shield develop hairline cracks that eventually propagate and result in the metal parts literally falling off.
When the first shield broke I though t was me being hard on the equipment. I have babied the helmet and shields ever since - but it's made no difference.
Don't waste your money. I will never buy an AGV design like this again.

Dark smoke visor
The visor sheds water better than the clear one the helmet came with (I'm assuming it has something to do with the tinted coating?) The tint could be a little darker, but it's certainly worth purchasing. I did find the locking mechanism on the tinted visor to fit much tighter than the visor that came with the helmet...you have to force the tabs closed, and it's caused some paint chipping on the locking pieces on the visor and helmet.

Yes, it's JUST a face shield...I know
The dark smoke version of this thing is DARK...not necessarily darker than other shields on the market - but too dark to ride with on my country commute home from work in the evening. I bring the clear shield with me to work to change out when the sun goes down. My ride home is chock full of deer and other animals who can't wait to hop in front of my motorcycle so the added visibility the clear shield gives is much appreciated...
The spring loaded shield retention clips on this thing are a snap to use when switching between clear and dark. I thought my Bell helmets were easy but these are certainly the simplest and quickest. Clearly, much thought went into their design. If you're on the fence about Corsa line of helmets...don't be. Spend the $$$ and you won't be disappointed.

After putting this visor to the test of 1100 miles thru dry,wet, dense fog and high humidity I can say this shield is a little bit overpriced but is a good addition to a premium helmet. My only two complaints are that Temps lower than 65-70 degrees it tends to fog up pretty bad if it is closed but just opening the lock lets it clear up. It is water tight for riding in the rain and sitting upright the water tends to sit on the visor and not flow off very well but going to a full tuck behind the windscreen it flows off great as expected. The only other complaint is the iridium mirror has a bad tendancy to smudge and if you're hit with bugs constantly it smears and makes it hard to see out the visor clearly. Other than those things its a awesome looking visor and it works great in full sun and low light cloudy/rainy weather. Don't hesitate, buy one
