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.

Wide side view, great airflow, and quiet!
Needed a new face shield and wanted a tinted one, but was afraid to get one that's too dark for night riding home in the city after work. I didn't want to have to change out face shields. Got the PinLock face shield with the removable light smoke insert...AWESOME! I was originally planning on just taking the insert out for night riding after work, but turns out that the light smoke is dark enough for daytime rides and light enough for night riding in the city (tons of street lights/lamps). Best part...NO FOGGING UP!!! Riding in cold weather now and without the PinLock shield I'd be riding half as much due to the fogging on my other shield. Bottom line: great price, easy install, light smoke good for day/night, and NO FOG!!!

Works as advertised
Bought this for my new RX-Q. The anti-fog works well, still get a good amount of fogging around perimeter of lens. Installs easily, vents ok.

My big complaint about this lens is the visual clarity. Looking thru this lens is disappointing at best. Produces a good amount of light glare from oncoming headlights and the visual trueness is not very good. Comparing this to my Nolan N-102 Pin lock and the Arai lens is sub-par, the Nolan is nearly invisible where the Arai is like looking thru a fish bowl.

The anti-fog function works, but visual clarity is not there.

It works.
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

Great product, Great price.
No more foggy face shield. Also I bought the tinted one which works very well under the sun. And some times when I need to come back late in the dark, I can still see very well at night.

I have used a dark smoke shield for over 30 years and carry a clear for late rides.

I commute year round in western Oregon. Got tired of fogging and did some research on the advise of a friend about pinlock. I would highly recommend. 36 degrees raining and no fog. SOLD !

I'm hoping its as dark as my current helmet. "Dark smoke: seems to vary based on the make. I love that it can be easily changed out. thumbs up to Arai and Revzilla!
Tony S on May 5, 2015
I've tried many types of fog free sprays and devices. I ride year round in cold temps and have never found a product that works so well and for so long. My last Pinlock insert lasted more than 2 years and 25000 miles and now steams up just at my mouth.

Firts, because I'have had one once and I know how good it is. Second, I couldn't find the appropriated pinlock for my helmet in Brazil, but Mr. James (RevZilla's sales guy who support me) gave me a right solution - he was amazing!

Does the shield or the pinlock block ultraviolet rays? I'm considering a yellow or light smoke pinlock but do not want to introduce tint without UV protection.
A shopper on Sep 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have used both of them for a year or so each. The light smoke insert was purchased after I had issues with the yellow tinted shield's glare on bright days. The light smoke is just about perfect. Night riding has to be considered for either insert the light smoke is a better choice if you ride much at night. The UV protection was not considered when purchasing these. They both are top of the line and totally eliminated the fog on shield at the same time they provided the shielding from the bright sunlight. These are the best inserts offered.
Anyone have any experience with using the yellow insert at night? I've used clear pinlock inserts before but I just can't deal with the glare at night, I was wondering if the yellow tint might cut down or eliminate that problem altogether.
Grant W on Dec 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It most definitely works great when riding at night, there's no glare around headlights and even during the day it works great! I use it always
Clear and both light and dark smoke tints are self-explanatory, but, trying to figure out what riding conditions you would use the yellow or amber tint inserts. Thanks.
A shopper on Jul 16, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The difference between Yellow and Amber tints is a closely guarded secret that only an elite few people know. Your best bet would be to make a pilgrimage to Tibet and seek out a monk who lives in a pagoda high atop a mountain peak in the Himalayas. Before revealing the secret, however, he will ask you to test your commitment and dedication by sending you on a quest to find an extraordinarily rare flower that only grows on the east side of the mountain. Only then will it be revealed that both tints increase visual clarity during the day in low-light, overcast, or rainy conditions but the amber tint is better in the fog. Well, I guess you don't have to make the trip now. But the monk would also teach you a deadly martial art so you can fight crime like a spandex-clad vigilante super hero, so that would totally be worth it.
I keep the pin lock insert installed on my shield year-round. I find that after 3-4 months the silicon seal isn't as tight allowing air to escape and moisture to gather on the inside of the shield. Does the silicon seal need to "rest"?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: In my experience with Pinlock, the system works like a charm up until the point where the shield gets too scratched to see through.

The silicone seal helps to keep water and moisture out from between the layers, however, the real technology is the interior layer (or lens) which actually absorbs moisture instead of allowing it to materialize as fog.

If you have issues with the seal, just unseat the pinlock lens and clean the shield. Then re-apply, hopefully without issue. The only caution I would give you is that constant changing of the pinlock lens will break down the silicone seal and allow moisture to eventually creep in-between and form on the shield. If is better to change the pinlock lens once a season as needed.

Would the Pinlock system work on a Gmax GM11D?
