Bell Revolver EVO Inner Sun Shield
This is a must have!!
Not sure what bell is thinking shipping the near clear sun shield as the default. The stock visor is mostly useless as a sun shield. This is a must have and well worth the pain of a 0 instruction, not so easy install.

The Shade Bell Should Have Made Standard
This is the Sun Shade tint that should have been original equipment. The shade is easily replaced with a drop of silicon oil applied at each attachment point, and wear household rubber gloves to get traction when removing the factory unit. Reassembly is easier with the chin closed, and installing the right (pivot post) side first. If the shield does not fully retract, the pivot post side is the most likely culprit.

Better than the one that comes with the helmet.
Like the other reviews said, the force that it needs to be use is scary for a plastic piece.
But I find out an easy way to remove the Sun Shield, the main problem is trying to pull the Sun shield while holding the helmet so what I did was putting my knee inside the helmet so you can hold the Sun shield with the both hands.
Now regarding Sun shield, it is a improvement from the one that you get by default but still if you got the sun directly in front, you will need to avoid it.

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.
