William S: The Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Shield and Inserts are must have for visibility on rainy or foggy days.Apr 10, 2014
Suzanne W: works great on track days: one shield for all light conditions and packs easily.Mar 29, 2014
Richard W: I love my Arai helmet, I love my new bike and I plan to ride well into the cold weather season. Fog on the shield is the key limiting factor for cold weather riding, so I decided to give the pinlock system a try.Oct 9, 2013
Daniel W: To replace a scratched shield.Sep 5, 2013
A s: currently have the stock face shield and i have had it fog up dramatically and extremely quickly. felt it was time to get the pinlock. wish someone had talked to me about it when i bought my helmet.Aug 31, 2013
Austin C asked:Does the outline clear edge bother anyone once you get a smoked insert. I feel like it would be very annoying. Also, what does it look like from the outside, can you see the outside rim? I am deciding if this is worth it, or should I just get a smoked stock shield.Aug 7, 2014
Alf M:I don't think the clear edge of the shield showing thru has any impact on visibility at all. In my opinion the pin lock system really demonstrates it's value when there's a significant temperature difference between the outside air and the air inside the helmet (ie cool fall and spring days). In the summer I use the stock single shield since it's hard not to get dings and scratches and it's cheaper to eventually replace compared to the pin lock. Aug 8, 2014
James S:The outline clear edge is over the helmet. Not you're field of view. I actually liked this for the look of the helmet. Getting a full colored shield covers up some of the designs around the eyes. Basically, the insert covers the span of the opening and the clear is over the helmet designs.
It's not noticeable while wearing it. And when you're not wearing it, you can see all of the artwork on your helmet :)Aug 9, 2014
A s:If you're in a climate where your shield fogs up easily, it's worth it. I don't recall if you can see the clear rim looking in but looking out is fine. If fogging up isn't a problem, check out the new arai shield with the flip down shade. It take a few minutes to get used to but is really nice.Aug 8, 2014
A s:This is a pinlock face shield and you can get different colored/tinted inserts. My Shoei has different colored face shields but only a clear insert. One could argue that the inserts are cheaper to buy than the face shields. Aug 4, 2014
A shopper asked:Does this work with the Vector 2? I don't see this version, with the brow vents, as an orderable part from Arai for the Vector 2. I only see the version without brow vents. Can anyone confirm that this shield is compatible?
How does the anti-fog capabilities of this, along with the inserts, compare to the Arai Dual Pane SAI shield? Is there anyone that has tried both that can give some insight?
WCS4th:The Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Ready Shield absolutely works with the Vector 2 - I am using it right now with mine. I was able to get the Max Vision with the brow vent option - maybe it wasn't available yet when you were trying to order yours.
Check out the Arai page on the Max Vision shield. It sold me on buying one. If you don't see the link below - just go to the araiamericas webpage and select the Vector 2 helmet. There should be a link on the right side of the screen for this shield.
I haven't used the Arai Dual Pane SAI shield. But after riding in the cold and cool mornings this spring and having the regular Arai shields fog like crazy, these shields don't fog at all. These are incredible. It was like a completely different ride not having to worry about my shield fogging.
Chris K:This is compatible with the Arai Vector 2 and is the newest version that allows for the brow vents.
To compare with the Dual Pane shield, I don't think that the anti-fog properties are much different, however, the Dual Pane will allow for a larger field of vision. The downside is that the Dual Pane is not really removable, whereas the Pinlock can be switched out as needed.
