Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Ready Face Shield w/ Brow Vents
no fog but with minor issues
It really will not fog, even on a cold day intentionally breathing hot air on it. But, you can see the bottom ridge where the insert fits in the main shield while your riding. This was very distracting the first 2 times I used the shield. It does not bother me anymore, I don't notice it now. Sometimes when the light hits the sheild a certain way it is a little hazy but not too bad. Also, it scratches easily. Other than no fog, the only other real benefit is if you start your ride when it's daytime and end your ride a night you can remove the tinted insert but you will need a soft cloth to wrap it in for storing. If you need no fog and find yourself riding from day to night I would say get this. Otherwise just get a regular tinted shield, it's probably a little better.

This is just a basic helmet visor. But you need it if you are planning on doing a pinlock system on your helmet to prevent fogging. So do keep in mind this is just the visor you also need to buy the pinlock insert which is separate. The added brow vents is a nice addition from my standard visor. Just don't forget to lubricate the joints of the visor before inserting into your arai helmet. It makes a world of a difference when opening and closing the visor. Overall a great product.

Excellent field of vision and air flow
Best field of view I've used. Excellent anti-fog properties with pinlock lens in place. Brow vents add extra air flow for those hot days.

Nice and must have for daily commuters in a cold weather
I got this mainly to prevent fog on the shield while commuting daily basis on a public road where many stops and go happen during rush hour. With this shield, I am literally fog free. Great product and very easy to install and maintain.
I got both clear and dark smoky inserts along with this shield. Dark smoky is pretty useful. During daylight, I insert it. Occasionally when I have to ride at night, simply I take off the insert to make it more visible.

I was using the old style pinlock for a few year and it was scratched from sitting in my tank bag.
This new one is great, optically better than the old style. Definately worth the upgrade. Fits perfectly as Arai gear always does.
Not cheap but the best never is.

Just like new
I really like this visor. The brow vents work as advertised, and I run a pinlock insert so it doesn't fog.
The only thing I'd like is for the visor to have more UV protection.

I produce a lot of body heat so I fog up lenses easily especially at night. When I ordered this shield and pinlock insert (not included), I no longer had fogging issues.
