Arai XD-4 Pinlock-Ready Faceshield

Pinlock ready face shield for Arai XD-4 Helmets with brow vents.

Although this XD-4 Pinlock Ready Brow Vent face shield will fit earlier XD version helmets, Arai recommends installing it only on helmets with brow vents.

Pinlock insert lens sold separately.

Note: In RevZilla's experience, Pinlock shields and inserts for Arai XD-4 Helmets are not as effective as Pinlock shields and inserts for other Arai helmets due to the compound curves of the shield.

Arai XD4 Pinlock Faceshield
I actually bought this for cold weather ...not the girly 20*- 30*F riding, but the 0*F Canada riding.Unfortunately i think i'm going to have to go to a heated visor for this temp as the pinlock is not designed for extreme cold. I will review this product because when the temps came up to around 30*F and up this visor works great to prevent fogging.I would definately recommend this product

Multiple Pinlock Issues.....
It's bad enough you're forced to drop another $80+ to address the fogging issue inherent to the XD-4, however, from day one after swapping visors, I've had problems with the pinlock...with the increased thickness of the shield combined with the insert, it hangs/rubs on the face shield opening each time you open/close...so much so, it led to breaking the seal between the shield and the insert, which defeats the purpose of the system, and allows rain water to actually accumulate between these...then with the added weight of the shield and pinlock, the hinge system no longer is as supportive, hence, in full open position, the slightest nod or jarring of your head causes the shield to partially close. Arai has been very accommodating to my concerns, so much so, they shipped my helmet to Japan to have the techs research a fix. Over a month later, still no resolution, and I still don't have my helmet. On the one hand, Arai has thrown everything at this trying to resolve the problem, on the other hand, this doesn't say much about their initial QA/QC of this add-on. I've become so frustrated that I'm one step away from requesting a refund, and seeking a competitors helmet.

Arai PinLock face sheild
Not much to say...this is a standard Arai face sheild that has the "pins" installed for the PinLock inserts. Replacement is easy, 4 screws. Don't overtighten when replacing, they are plastic afterall.

Pinlock or Nuthin'
They need to rename this the Fog Destroyer

Cold weather + hot breath = fog, but not with Pinlock. I can see everything crystal clear now, whether it's day or night, warm weather or cold weather. Easy to install, and makes a huge difference.

Shield is awesome and does what it is supposed to.
One would expect Arai to include the pinlock shield by default, especially if you consider the cost of the helmet. THe pinlock system is awsome through. Still feels as if this should be a standard feature on a helmet in this price range

Great Product
Bought this product for a cross country trip to deal with fogging issues on my XD-4. Works great but you would think this visor would come standard on a premium helmet or at least come with the insert when purchasing the visor.

Works great with a little modification
Ordered this despite the negative reviews about the system not fitting the visor correctly. As received, the item does not fit the visor at all even with the pinlock cams rotated to the open position.
I took a pocket knife and trimmed about .5mm off each slot of the pinlock insert, and now it fits perfectly with no issue at all.

What a difference this makes for the XD4! No more riding in cold weather with the visor part way open or opening at every stoplight. Much safer and more convenient, really transforms this helmet from good to great. Expensive, but worth it.

Pin lock visor is highly resistant to fogging up. I find it doesn't seal great at the tip of the lower front, but it doesn't cause but a small amount of fogging.

Need a tinted insert for the Arai XD-4. It should be included as the helmet is expensive enough as is.

Fall weather, my shield is closed more so I am getting fogging.
Charles S on Sep 14, 2015
I needed a new face shield after my last Pinlock-ready shield and lens scratched up when dust got between them. I would not, however, buy another XD-4 helmet because the hard angles of the shield make it difficult for Pinlock lenses to keep the seal needed for it to not fog up.
Manny V on Feb 17, 2015

poor fit and difficult to raise face shield due to top vents. Works well on my other helmets, but not my Arai.

JimC42 on May 31, 2016
The shape of this shield does not seem fit my XD4 helmet. Is this the picture of shield for Aria SAI helmet? Another question is, the gap between the stock shield and helmet is small, can I still fully open the shield after I get the pinlock insert installed?
Jin Y on May 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi JinY ... The XD4 pinlock shield fit my 2012 XD4 helmet perfectly...I bought this shield because I ride in colder weather and wanted something that wouldn't fog and it serves that purpose down to about 30 degrees F...yes you can open the shield as fully as the stock shield with the pinlock installed....if the shield doesn't fit right check to make sure you didn't accidently get a shield for the XD3
just bought the xd-4...what is a pinlock?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Pinlock is an anti-fog insert that attaches to the inside of your helmet's shield using two small pins to trap the insert in place. It is essentially a double pane window for your shield.
