Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Insert w/ Brow Vents
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Easy to place
Great product. Worked as claimed. I will likely purchase other tints.
