LaZer Lumino Photochromatic Faceshield for Kite / Falcon / Osprey / Kestrel
Really functional and efficient but a bit expensive
I got this shield for free with a kestrel helmet and I have to admit this visor is amazing.
It is crystal clear and offer a wide vision. Once sunrays hit the shield, it turns darks very quickly at a 50% darkness (personal rating).
I still believe it is a bit expensive, but if you can afford it you should definitely go for it! This feature paired to my kestrel carbon helmet make the helmet so light since there is no need for an internal visor anymore.
I recommend this product.

I got this for free with the purchase of a Lazer helmet and it was easy to install and does the job so that I no longer have to carry two shields. It does get pretty dark, maybe a little darker would be better, but it's not a mirror finish shield so I really can't complain. It gets dark enough for those sunny days and stays clear for the night rides home

Now I can go full Power Ranger!
Haven't ridden with it yet but while it was clear I stepped outside into the glaring sun and snow and the lens changed very quickly to it's full tint. I was worried from other reviews it wouldn't be very dark but it was darker than I expected, nearly black, and I can't imagine needing it any darker. My only concern is how durable the transition quality will be against scratches caused by bugs or stones flung from tires.

Best Shield (could get darker though)
Got this shield free with my purchase of the Lazer Kestrel Deep.... and I'm glad I did. Great shield and pinlock. My only criticism is that it could get darker. That being said darkness-wise it is equal to the Bell's offering.

Best visor ever
This should be on every helmet. There is no better option for a visor out there. Perfect for anyone that will be riding day and night.

Transitions well but too light
This was great bang for the buck since it was free when I purchased my Lazer Kestrel helmet. I hoped that the transitions shield would handle TX sun and early morning commutes without having to change to a smoke shield. It changes from light to dark very quickly (20-30 seconds) and I never notice when it starts to lighten if it gets cloudy - from this standpoint, the shield is a 5+. However, I only gave it 4 stars because the darkest tinting is still too light for full sunlight. I have started carrying sunglasses with me but will likely buy the darkest shield from Lazer and switch every day (clear for morning commutes before the sun comes up, dark smoke for afternoon commutes home).

I received this with my Purchase of the Osprey Carbon light Helmet and it seals the deal!! works as advertised and no need to change shields. very clear, and I would even go as far to say, I think it fits better then the factory shield. This shield gets darker than I thought it could... very happy with it.
I don't think I would have paid for this initially but I could see myself buying a replacement now, if I ever need it. combined with pin lock, I don't see anything else I could ever need.
