Dark Smoke is perfect for me. I wondered if the dark smoked version would be do dark, in fact there is some disclaimer that came with it that says "for track use only." I don't know about all that, but I'm the kind of guy who squints when it is sunny and usually wears sunglasses when driving my car, so this is perfect. The sun doesn't hurt even when it is directly in my view. This pinlock is always in my shield, (I don't ride at night) and I do not have a problem seeing even when it is cloudy or 30 min before sunset. Also, have never seen fog on my face shield with this thing, even with all vents closed in 50 degree weather. It is a must have in my opinion. April 10, 2014
Pinlock insert A Pinlock shield is the best anti-fogging technology I've ever used. The Max Vision version works as well as any other Pinlock insert while providing a greater field of vision (thanks Aria!). I bought the lightly tinted shield, which is good for headlight glare at night without being so dark it impairs night vision. March 31, 2014
These definitely work for fogging. These pinlock inserts should come standard on every helmet. I used it on a 26 degree morning and my breath didn't even begin to fog it up. You get a little bit of double vision from headlights at intersections at night but not to the point where it made it hard to see. March 17, 2014
Best Arai upgrade available Not too much to say other than the shield does exactly what it should. I added the clear insert and took it on a 140 mile ride on a 40 degree F day and I didn't have the slightest hint of fog. I would recommend this to any Arai owner. February 21, 2014
Scratches easily, must be cleaned with soap and water Fits perfectly, and seems to work as advertised. But it scratches easily, and you absolutely cannot allow most cleaning solutions in contact with it! I destroyed my pinlock insert when I was cleaning the OUTSIDE of the visor with plexus! To be fair, the instructions say to clean the insert in soapy water, and not to use any product with alcohol or ammonia. I read the Plexus can and didn't see any mention of either, but still I avoided spraying any of it onto the back of the visor! However, apparently some overspray found its way onto the pinlock insert, and as fast as that, my insert was ruined! For me, the Plexus issue aside, I find the insert awfully delicate...If you do any riding on dirt roads where the inside of the visor needs to be cleaned routinely, you're going to find that having to use soapy water to clean them is a problem. But if you ride on the street only, and you rarely need to clean the inside of your visor, they'll probably work just fine. For that reason I still recommend them as a good way to fix the fogging issues they're designed to address. February 18, 2014
Arai insert good product for fit and finish, but missing on complete satisfactory function. I didn't choose the correct insert the first time, which was returned, re ordered and now have the correct (light tint) shield insert. HOWEVER, This Arai Shield insert should be improved by including a dark tint band (~ 1 1/2 -2 inches) at the top brow of the insert. Early morning and evening sun glare could be reduced dramatically, especially for the clear and light tint insert. which I now have. I needed and purchased an after market "Fog City Speed tint", which attaches between the shield & insert, and helps alot in reducing glare. An integrated heavier tint band on the clear and lightly tinted Arai insert lens, would be similar to most car windshields. January 20, 2014
Easy to place Great product. Worked as claimed. I will likely purchase other tints. November 19, 2013
No more fog No More fog. Buy all the colours (Colors for you Yanks) for all riding conditions, swap when conditions change. Click in/out system. November 4, 2013

Eric C asked: How is the low-light/night visibility on the yellow visor? Jan 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Eric C: I went ahead about bought the pinlock visor and yellow insert anyway.
\Night time visibility is very good with the yellow insert, but everything, headlights especially, looks very yellow and takes a ride or two to get used to.
The yellow insert doesn't do that much to block out sun light during the day, but still better than the clear by a bit.
As far as the visor itself, the bevel at the edges distorts visibility a bit and it's sometimes hard to tell if its the bevel or an object at the far edge of my peripheral vision. It'll take some getting used to.
Overall, not quite what I expected, but overall I am satisfied.

Gene W: I purchased this item but returned it unopened because I didn't like the Pinlock visor system. My Arai came with this type visor in clear and I also bought the yellow at the same time as an extra visor for night use. I found with the clear OEM visor that it reduces the useable area of the visor as well as distorts my view more than is acceptable. I use the clear without the insert installed for night and the visor style without the Pinlock feature in the darkest tint available for daytime. I may buy the yellow visor in the non Pinlock style at some time in the future but I'm sorry to report that the Pinlock style isn't for me. Jan 23, 2014

A shopper asked: does the visor lay flat? im wondering if i'd be able to keep the insert under my seat in my GSXR1000 during night riding May 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Pinlock inserts most certainly do lay flat. It is not recommended, however, to remove/replace the lenses on a regular basis as this action degrades the silicone seal that provides the anti-fog characteristics. Once the seal is damaged, the dual-pane created by the Pinlock is negated. The preferred method is still to exchange the entire faceshield between smoke and clear for day and night riding, respectively. Another option is to us the e-Tint AX-10 Auto Tint Faceshield Insert for Arai helmets which gives you Pinlock qualities with automatic tinting for day/night riding. May 31, 2012

WCS4th: The insert does lay flat, however I would be careful about just shoving it under your seat. The insert is made of a rubbery plastic type material and may pick up lint and dirt easily.

I would find a lint free cloth to wrap it in or put it in a Ziploc bag for underseat storage.

Hope this helps.

A shopper asked: From the picture, it doesn't appear that the seal is contoured around the vent. Doesn't this compromise the layer of air in between the visor and shield? Apr 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: This Pinlock Insert is specific for and will only work with the Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Ready Face Shield w/ Brow Vents. Though it may not appear like it, the silicone bead on the insert is continuous, even around the brow vent cutouts, so the seal is maintained. Apr 5, 2013
