Arai SAI Pinlock Insert
The Dark smoke insert isn't all that dark. Don't even bother with the light smoke one

Day-time Cold Weather Anti-Fog-Yes. Nite Clarity-ABSOLUTELY NO
Bought a new Signet Q helmet with Pinlock Lens (clear). The helmet is terrific (fit, long-term comfort, noise level, style, features) and I'd recommend it highly. Bravo Arai. The lens - I need a DIFFERENT solution. During daylight hours, the clear lens with Pinlock insert is flawless and certainly addresses the "anti-fog" question for cold weather riding. Perfect. THEN, I went for a night ride. WOW. If you like riding while looking through a kaleidoscope, great. I need a replacement for the pin-lock lens ASAP. If you're in an urban area with lots of street and ambient lighting, the Pinlock lens insert is downright DISTRACTING and on the verge of DANGEROUS. I've pulled the insert and cleaned it to make certain this isn't a problem related to poor install and it hasn't helped. Disappointed for sure after spending big $$$ on the helmet. Hoping I can find a better lens solution because I love the helmet.

So I wanted to try this out. I purchased a yellow and a smoke pinlock with the hope that they would do exactly what I needed it to do. As far as fogging goes, they work great. The problem I had with them is that they don't go over the entire faceshield, so there is still plenty of room for the sunlight to get in. Another issue is that they seem to distort my vision when looking through them. If I lived in an area where my shield was constantly fogging up, then I would probably still ride with it. It does work for that aspect.

Good long term investment
I actually bought a wrong sized insert for my faceshield. But nevertheless this product is good in my books coz it's cheaper to interchange the inserts rather than the whole faceshield itself

No more fogging up with the pinlock shield
Never fog up again. Great quality from Arai. Expensive but you get what you paid for.

The pinlock product is a good feature, but there are too many options and styles that make identifying and selecting difficult
I like the idea of a flexible shield change system, and have always loved the fit, and performance of my Arai helmets. The pinlock seems to live up to its claim of being fog-free (which is a significant benefit for racers competing in the rain.

Totally Fog Free
The SAI Pinlock design works great. I've had it for 4 months now and no fogging at all - even as the seasons changed. I started with the clear insert and liked the performance so much I ordered additional inserts for sunny and cloudy days.
