Bell Transitions SolFX Photochromic Face Shield
Keeps vision comfortable and clear
Bought this to replace the standard visor on my Bell Qualifer as I have a similar shield in a Monaco Lazer Carbon which got damaged in a crash. I really appreciate how I don't notice the visor is working. The visual contrast remains consistent. There is never too much glare in afternoon sun and when it gets darker the visor adjusts very quickly. As a daily commuter I also like that the visor does not get too dark so motorists can still see my eyes when I'm stopped at a light next to them. It would be perfect if it also comes with a pinlock insert and it's a bit pricey compared with the replacement for the Monaco.

exactly what you expect
It's a little pricey, but worth every penny. No need to carry a clear visor for evening rides. This little fella transitions perfectly and quickly. I haven't timed it, but I'd say it'll change faster than you could put your pants on.

No more swapping out visors!
Great visor due to the transition lens. No swapping out visors! I wish the tint it was a bit darker though. One gripe is that this visor fogs up when I am stopped which isn’t an issue when the weather is nice since I can crack the visor open but not much when it is raining and water gets behind the visor. Maybe in future iterations Bell can provide a pin lock system.
All manufactures so come out with a transition shield!!!

A great transition face shield
This is the first one that I have ever had but i am very pleased with it and it is very convienent on sunny days so you don't have to worry about sunglasses or anything else. I am a newbie when it comes to riding so i did a lot of research to find this product. All the reviews for this were very helpful already and I am just hoping to help someone else.

My first transitions shield and very happy with it. No more fumbling with sunglasses under a clear shield or debating on where and how to carry an alternate colored shield.
Darkens / Lightens quickly and efficiently. Gets dark enough to work without sunglasses in bright sunshine - only time when I wished it was darker was heading into an absolutely blaring sunset one evening.
Really a joy not to have to deal with sunglasses anymore - just don't forget to bring them along for when you are off the bike....

Should Have Gotten Sooner
I wish I had gotten this years earlier. It changes tint rapidly and is always just right for conditions.

Does whatever it advertises
Well I have three visors clear black and now the transition SolFx and i'm glad I didn't take the sticker off of it because the first morning I used it I couldn't tell the difference between my clear and it. So I live in Texas and the sun is brutal it does just like it advertises it starts out clear and it gets darker the more sun hits/ UV and that's where things get strange. Because if the UV index is low the shield doesn't get as dark which sometimes it feels like you're not using it at all even though it does have a tent to it And it times I've had it get just as dark as my black visor but then at other times it just becomes a medium smoke. Now I don't know if it's a production issue I've seen some people complain about the reaction time but mine goes from light to dark quite quickly. In fact it's sensitive enough that while playing with it on the porch I set my dark visor in front of it and half the visor immediately went clear as the other half stayed smoked.One other thing about this is cleaning it I've only used dish soap and warm water which really has kept it in great shape no problems no scratches oh and I Use a scratch free cloth.so do I recommended yes do it's just very convenient.
