Bell Revolver EVO Inner Sun Shield
A Must Have
the Revolver EVO comes with an inner sun shield that is too light, hence it is essential to upgrade to these dark smoked ones if you care about using the helmet's built-in sun protection feature. The old ones are very difficult to remove; you must pull very hard, always thinking you are going to break something. Not a good design. Once the new ones are in, however, things are good. The old ones didn't break upon removal, so I would imagine this is a fairly durable product.

Bell Sun Shade lens
Almost dark enough, but not quite when you're looking right into the sun.
Would be much better if fog resistant and polarized.
Ridiculously difficult to remove, although that plastic is super strong. Hard to install but not as bad a removing. If the shade doesn't fully retract after installation you've got it in wrong.

What a pain to install
I really like the Bell Evo Revolver helmet, but the stock inside visor is too light. So I purchased the darker visor. Pulling the stock visor out was a royal, and scary, pain. First, it came with no directions. Secondly, the directions on the Bell site were worthless. Finally, I found some help here at Revzilla, but even then, it was really disconcerting to have to pull so hard on the visor to break it free. I then installed the new visor, and it too was not all that easy to pop into the fitting. Once installed, it has a bad habit of not fully retracting. The visor wants to hang down a little. Overall.....Disappointing.

This inner sun shield is a great replacement for that useless stock sun shield installed already. The installation process for this new shield however is difficult and lead me to somehow stop the spring mechanism from operating correctly. My Templar Evo's sun shield needs to be raised by hand now.

a better inner shield
This is a replacement inner shield for the original light smoke grey one that came with the Bell Revolver Evo helmet. I found the light smoke a little too light for my taste so I opted for the dark one. So far I am happy with it, but I have two small disappointments. First off I am a new rider so I think I am missing alot of knowledge so when the shield came without instructions I felt a little miffed. Thanks to Google and some forums I got the know how to removing my old sheild and installing the new one. My second disappointment is the shield is still slightly visable when fully retracted. I don't remember seeing the original like that so I am guessing if might be a little bigger or maybe I broke something. Don't know and it doesn't bother me enough to try to figure it out. Maybe I will try to reinstall the original and go from there at a later date.

Inner Bell Revolver dark smoke inner sunshield
I love this darker inner sunshield. When I leave home to go to work, it is dark. By the time I get to work, the sunrise is right in my face. I must use the clear outer shield for the dark, but don't want to stop and change. The original inner sunshield was not near dark enough. This setup now is perfect. I was a bit concerned after reading the other reviews about haw hard it was in install. I guess I lucked out. It did take a bit od effort to take out the old one, but was not hard at all. The new slid right in without issue.

Better than the lighter tint shield that came in the helmet
Like every other review that I've read, I found the light grey shield that came in the helmet to be too light in bright sun conditions when you really need a sun shield. I found that changing the inner shield was more difficult than I expected, even after reading other reviews and comments. You have to pull extremely hard to get the shield out of the helmet, I was sure something was going to break. Installing the replacement shield I had to use a headlight to look into the right side of the helmet to guide the shied into the right place, it does not just slide back in to place automatically.

It's pretty much just a piece of plastic so there really isn't a lot that can go wrong with it. I do prefer this shade over the lighter one that came with the helmet but I was surprised at how hard you have to pull to remove it from the helmet, it almost feels like you're going to break something.
