Bell Transitions SolFX Photochromic Face Shield
Fantastic technology would be nice to if they could get it under a $100.00. For the price it should come with the recommended cleaning cloth.

Works but to much $$$
The shield works well, turns dark enough so sun glasses are not needed. I had to adjust both hinge plates quite a bit to get the proper seal as the face shield did not even touch the gasket but once adjusted all is good. I also feel the Bell's price for the shield it way to high as its just a coating on the shield so it may not last very long but time will tell

If you have a bell helmet and have more than 1 visor for day and night your a fool. This thing is great. It has your covered day or night, cloudy or bright. Buy one now.

Works as advertised. Comes in handy during the morning commute with the rising sun. Put it on your helmet and forget about it.

A visor for night and day!
Since I have bought this visor I have already been stuck a work late a couple times, and it is great that I do not have to switch out my visor.
When clear, it is just as clear as a clear shield, but the dark tint is about 90% of what you would get if you bought a dark smoke visor.

Works well but scratches easily.
Let me start off by saying this shield works great, very convenient to not have to carry multiple shields, the transition happens very rapidly. This is the whole reason why I got into a Bell in the first place. Now the downside...
Just a couple days after I got it I saw taking my helmet out of my closet to ride to work. It just brushed against the door very lightly and BAM, a two inch long gouge in my $110 shield. For the price you pay for this shield I would expect some sort of anti scratch coating of something. This shield cost 1/3 of what I paid for the whole RS1 helmet, I'd like to have it last a while. For this kind of durability I'd rather buy plain $30 shields.
This is a common problem with Bell shields I think, even the stock shield scratched easilyy. Meanwhile my AGV shields can take a beating and never look worse for the wear.
