AGV Grid Face Shield
i bought the iridium silver shield
and it doesn't lock properly
and makes noise which is worst
where as the clear shield locks well .
and the upper iridium coating has started to peel off
i would stick to clear visor only

Looks good, but isn't perfect
I got the dark smoke, and it looks fantastic. Its the perfect shade for daytime riding, and on a sunny day, makes it so I don't need sunglasses.
The downside is that it doesn't seal as well as the clear visor that came with the helmet. It lets air in while closed, sometimes enough to make my eyes water. It's a pretty big flaw, especially for how expensive these visors are.

Awkward Fitment but great shield overall
Shield came extremely quick. Revzilla is awesome when it comes to shipping. Not too much to explain about the shield if you already have the helmet. My only minor issues is the tear offs points and the Fitment. The tears off point are too much in the peripheral vision areas. I wish it could be farther back on the sides. Also I had to completely close and force the shield to seal on the helmet. Looks like the shield was slightly formed bent due to shipping or Revzilla storage. Not certain but I installed the shield closed tightly and waited overnight for the shield to mold back so the shield could easily be closed when helmet is in use. Other than that I'm happy with the product. I got the stigma helmet on a amazing sale but looks like it will be discontinued soon. Too bad.

Agv Shield on my Grid
Well what can I say. I bought the Silver face shield with mirror finish. The fit was perfect as expected. I love this shield it makes for pretty dark daylight riding and I hate wearing sunglasses under a helmet. 5 sec shield change is effortless. The mirror finish options are nice for those who ride beside there GF and don't want to get caught watching the "hotter" woman crossing the street.

Just what I needed..
I wear glasses when I ride, or do anything for that matter. Didn't want to carry around an extra set of prescription sunglasses for sunny days in San Diego (350 days of the year?) never mind having the issue of finding a pair that fit inside the AGV Grid that this shield went on.
I will say it's a bit too dark for riding at night unless it's a REALLY well lit street. However, looks great, fits easy, overall very happy. Ties in my helmet very well (Moon and Sun replica).

Great daylight visibility.
This sheild has good fitment and a great look especially on a black helmet. During very sunny days it gives great reduction in intensity but still feels like daylight. I would not recommend for late evening or night riding as it is too dark for that, so you will need to bring your clears.

for the AGV Grid 'Light Smoke' Visor only. Where's the smoke?
I'm really disappointment as its not as it appears on everyone's websites including AGV 's.
It states LT 50% on the packaging, but you'd have to be the lightest e-smoker to call this 'tint' smoked in my experience of other helmets. #I've tried twice to upload images without luck #
I'm returning it for the smoked typical dark version. My thanks again to Revzilla in exchanging this so efficiently as I'm off to Europe and the IOM Classic TT this Friday hoping for Sun shine along the way !

Didn't close properly
I got the smoke one to use with my new sun & moon helmet. It wouldn't close on one side correctly, it would go all the way down with some force but not fully sealed. I tried adjusting the mounting plates with no luck. I thought, no big deal I don't mind it cracked open a bit. Well it fogged instantly and only cleared up over 50mph and with short breaths. I had to head back home and put the original clear back on. The clear one that came with the helmet works like a champ and never fogs. Perhaps I got the 5 o'clock on Friday one.
