Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Insert w/ Brow Vents 4.5 5 73 73
great I'm glad i bought this. Now my visor doesn't fog up especially during cold weather. October 27, 2015
Disappointed I've been a fan of Arai equipment for years, so I hate to give any of their stuff a bad review. However, although the pinlock shield sounds like a good concept, it falls short in the real world. I purchased the dark tint shield. Note that Arai says "for competition use only", apparently fearing that the shield is too dark for regular street use (probably their lawyers talking). The dark tint on the pinlock insert is no where near as dark as their regular shield, so I end up squinting while riding on sunny days. My biggest beef is the lack of clarity of the layered arrangement. Since this is a shield that is positioned on top of the base shield, it seems that the light gets into the air space (designed to prevent fogging) and creates a real issue with glare. This is especially noticeable with the sun high overhead or off to ones side. It impairs visibility enough to be dangerous IMO. I strongly recommend not using this product. Sorry Arai. October 12, 2015
Easy system for changing tints without changing whole shields I thought this would be a great idea, small inserts I could carry easily in my tailpack, however, I just don't get great vision with it like I do with a plain shield. Since I wear glasses too maybe it's just too much plastic I'm trying to look through. I know the system is mainly to help with fogging but I don't live where that is an issue for me so I've gone back to regular tinted and clear shields. August 10, 2015
Pin lock is the best I only wish the pinlock visor worked as well on my XD-4! August 6, 2015
perfect Works as intended. Stopped the fogging. Easy to install. July 20, 2015
Absolute must My helmet was fogging up constantly before I got this it has yet to fog again after I put it in June 8, 2015
arai sai max vision pinlock insert clear I have an arai corsair and just recently added the clear insert into my pinlock shield. It is fantastic! Zero fogging. The amount of reduced visibility is so minor its insignificant. The insert was a bit tricky to fit just right however the struggle was worth it! I agree with others who say it's an expensive set-up (visor plus insert ) but it is a good product. I believe that no shield should be sold without at least the clear insert already installed. This works. And I like it. May 20, 2015
A must have!!! I absolutely love the the pinlock system I have used it in all types of weather and it as not once fogged up on me i do think that it should come with at least one clear insert. but sadly you have to buy it separate it is pricey but than again you can not put a price on safety now if i can just keep my glasses from fogging life would be grand.

A shopper asked: 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 May 16, 2015

Wayne C: 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. May 18, 2015

Tena H: Yea, it turns out the pins were in the shield, but they weren't obvious because they weren't as prominent as with the HJC helmet. Also, the HJC insert came with pins so that is why I expected the Arai insert to as well. Thanks for taking the time to answer. May 16, 2015

Dennis C: The pinlock ready system has 2 parts- the shield with a pin on each side and the insert. I have 2 pinlock ready shields, both with pins, and 2 inserts, neither with pins. See the Revzilla movie on the easy way to install the insert. May 17, 2015

William H asked: 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. May 2, 2014

Scott P: 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.

Tena H asked: 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. May 16, 2015

Jonathan C: 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. May 31, 2015

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

Chris O asked: 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?

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
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
A shopper asked: I see you said that it isn't recommended to take the insert out at night and replace for day, but to carry two shields. Really, at $100, to purchase the Arai Pro Shield, I don't want to have to take in off an on for day and night riding. This is why I bought the pro shade to begin with. I have read elsewhere that riding with the pinlock in at night is not advised because the headlights all end up with a serious halo effect. Is this correct If I have to remove the shield at night, I am probably better off without the insert. Also, is there a case available to store the pinlock insert in or the visor/shield when not in use to protect it in my saddlebag on the road? Otherwise, the system doesn't seem very practical. Wish I had read this before I ordered because then I wouldn't have bothered. May 16, 2015
