Magic !!!!
I have been riding with an Arai helmet for years, but wasn't until I recently purchased a new face shield that I had the option for the pinlock insert, so I figured, why not ?
Previously, I had just been cracking open my face shield to get a little airflow to knock down the fogging. The first 50 feet off the line at a stop light were always interesting because this technique only worked when moving and I would fog up like crazy at each light. But no more. This insert is absolute magic. I don't fog AT ALL. I never realized how big a deal it was until I didn't have to worry about it. I ride in all weather at all times, and I have not had the slightest issue with fogging. No matter how cold or how humid, it stays clear. I can even put the helmet on with wet hair and beard and none of the in-helmet humidity affects it. Worth every penny.
Install was a breeze. Literally less than a minute.
Honestly, I cannot think of any piece of my kit with which I have been so satisfied right out of the box. Works as advertised. No break in time. No learning curve. Pure magic.

This shield system is great for those cool rides. 0 fogging when you slow down or come to a stop.
The best. Every rider who rides in temperatures below 40 degrees this is it. You will get some dust between the two layers,you simply remove the Len to clean the two. It takes 3 mins.

Great concept but
I purchased this insert both clear and dark smoky along with Arai SAI Max vision pinlock ready face shield. The concept is great and it works very well for preventing fog. However, I have noticed one thing bothering. The clear vent produces blurred head light images from on-coming cars. Basically I see two images of headlights from other cars and break lights this bothers. It is nothing major flaw but if you are sensitive on these things it will be bothering overtime.

The dark smoky color insert does not have this issue though.

Fits the Signet Q
This is the one that fits the shield that comes with the new Signet Q. I have to say whatever they're doing here with this shield-over-shield technology works great. You can breath right into this thing and it won't fog up. Won't be long before all shields find a way to do this.

Great Pinlock Insert
Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Insert w/ Brow Vents is a perfect addition to any Arai helmet using the SAI visor. The visor has an indent for this insert to sit, so that it can extend beyond the gaskets and out of the field of view. You don't get the outline of the pinlock around your visor as you did in the past. Worth the money if you are a Pinlock wearer and want to maximize your field of vision through the insert.

Does what it's designed for.
Easy to install and remove, though shield replacement can be challenging. Using Arai Signet Q helmet, lens will not fog, though your sunglasses may. I'm using yellow lens (looks amber) and is good for most conditions.

Great Pinlock Tinted insert
I have an Arai Signet Q helmet. It came with the Pinlock visor (clear) which I like a lot. Only problem is since this is a snap-in insert vs a complete visor, one would think the cost of this Pinlock insert would be a little less....but it's not. Like the Pinlock system A LOT! Wish the inserts were cheaper. LOVE the new Signet Q helmet!

Can't believe it works, but it does
Been riding for over thirty years. Face shields fogging in the rain are a fact of life. Was quite doubtful that this shield would be any different. It was a very pleasant surprise when I found myself riding in a cold rain, and my shield was crystal clear, no fog at all. Not sure why it works so well, but glad it does.

Very Good Sun Protection
The Dark Gray is very good for Day Light Savings time. It is a bit on the darker side if you use after Sunset. I would use the light Gray for the end of Fall/Winter days as I normally leave work around 6:00ish PM and will be dark. Very easy to install.

I will be doing considerably longer commutes in the near future and need a better method of controlling face shield fogging, along with tinting to deal with early morning and late evening "ride into the sun" trips.

An otherwise good choice that failed unexpectedly. My eyeglasses fog up long before the shield does.

Will this Pinlock insert fit the arai SAI pro shade shield? It is Pinlock ready and has the brow vents; however the brow vents on the pro shade shield are larger then the stock sai shield.
Erez K on Sep 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not 100% sure but I don't think those are interchangeable.
I received my insert, but it didn't come with pins. My husband's HJC insert came with pins. Was this supposed to come with pins? The pro shade visor I bought didn't include pins either so I need pins from some place
A shopper on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As I recall the insert does not come with pins. They are on the helmet's original outer shield. My Signet-Q came with a clear outer face-shield and a clear pinlock insert. I bought a tinted insert for sunny days. The outer shield says Pinlock on the lower left and SAI-IC on the lower right. The pins come with the outer shield. See Revzilla Item# 814520.
Is it actually necessary to tighten or loosen the contact points? The instructions say to use a screwdriver to loosen and tighten the seal, but I've already stripped two visors trying this. Though I did finally find that if you flatten the shield enough you can barely squeeze the pinlock insert in without trying to loosen or tighten the locking point. Not sure how well it will all hold, but it was a problem I experienced.
William H on May 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It does work without turning the posts, but it's much more difficult to squeeze the shield in. I had left them loosened such that they weren't protruding over the shield, and it worked fine for a while, but then one day all of a sudden it wasn't holding the shield anymore so I had to turn the screws.
I have read that pinlock inserts need to be removed at night or else a terrible halo effect from headlights makes it difficult to see. I don't see that warning on the Arai Max Vision insert paperwork. Is this not necessary for this insert? I bought clear so that won't be an issue.
Funbikerchick on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I leave my filters in for extended period (yellow right now) and haven't experienced this symptom. I read somewhere to keep the visor out of extreme heat and cold situations for long periods like storing you're helmet visor down in an unheated garage window. I also "try" not to touch the surface, but you can clean them, I just use cold water and air dry.
How is the low-light/night visibility on the yellow visor?
Aerick on Jan 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
From searching around I see that Pinlock makes a photochromatic insert (changes from dark to clear depending on brightness), called ProtecTint.

Is this option available for the SAI Max Vision shield used in the Arai Signet-Q?
Chris O on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I hope they do
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
A shopper on May 24, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Will this fit an Arai Defiant?
nitin c on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yeah
do they have this in an amber or yellow tint?
Ian W on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have it in the Amber tint, I am not sure if it is available in yellow tint. It works well on those sunny days!
Will this fit the corsair-x shields?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, the Corsair-X requires a VAS-V Pinlock, which should be available soon.
