LaZer Lumino Transitions Face Shield For Full Face Models
Great Idea. Super clear and works great. Worth the investment.
-Because of slow transition speed. Be careful entering tunnels in the middle of the day.
-Pinlock lens likes to reflect glare at night which makes it pretty difficult to see.

I purchased this for my new Lazer Kestrel after I read reviews on it. It is very solid feeling especially for the Lazer helmet line. The shield turns dark pretty quick in sunlight or any light. I haven't timed it, But its between 15-30 seconds. I don't really like wearing shades in my helmet because of comfort, so this was a good alternative. I live in sunny Florida and always wear shades outside, and not very dark ones. In my opinion, the shield could be a little darker for my taste. Besides that I like it. With out having many helmet options that are super light AND have a drop down sun visor, this was the next best thing.

This is a great feature to add to the helmet. In that 30 seconds timeframe it was dark enough to not have to squint to see and it kept getting darker. In my opinion near the end of the day it was about as dark as a medium to dark smoke, but I think that might depend on the UV intensity for that day. No glasses needed which makes this helmet even more comfortable and I have "lost" a few glasses before by forgetting about them on my tank when taking off.
Not to mention it will turn heads when other riders first see it indoors and it looks like there is a clear lense and then once you go outside it gets dark.

Great photochromatic lens that adjusts quickly.
This shield fits the LaZer Kite Mustang full carbon perfectly, and the Transitions photochromatic properties are amazing. I used to ride with sunglasses under a light tint shield to have light adjustability. With this lens, I just ditched the sunglasses.

Highly recommend the transitions shield, very fast to change from light to dark to light.
Working well in very bright sun.

Ride all day AND night!
I love it. The End. This tint's to about 80% smoke in sunlight in about a minute, and clears up in the absence of UV in around 10. My helmets are the full packages now what with pinlock lenses and the transitions. Can't stop me now!

I bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday and he loves it. He says it's 100% better than the single shade. Thanks RevZilla!

Eliminates need to carry multiple visors.
The transitions visor for the Lazer helmets is tremendously convenient for rides that cross over from darkness into light (or vice-versa). I used to carry a second visor, and would have to stop and switch visors depending on lighting conditions. There were also several instances where the sun set while I was in a restaurant and fully geared up. I would start to pull away, drop the visor and have to stop immediately because I still had my shaded visor installed. With the transitions lens, this is no longer an issue. The visor reacts well to the ambient light, and it transitions quickly and smoothly whether going from shaded to clear or from clear to shaded.
The visor also comes pre-configured for a Pinlock shield, which is fantastic and the best anti-fog solution I've found after trying several visor treatments that worked to varying degrees.
Another "feature" of the visor is that it uses a separate locking piece that screws into holes in the side of the visor. This locking piece can come loose, but only requires a phillip's (+) head screwdriver to tighten.
My only complaint about the visor is that it would be nice if it darkened just a little bit more in very bright sunshine. When riding directly into the sun, the brightness can still be overwhelming, requiring a pair of sunglasses in addition to the darkened visor. This can result in some reflections inside the helmet.
Even with the minor drawback mentioned above, I still recommend the Transitions visors to friends who ride with full-face helmets. It's a convenient way to deal with changing lighting conditions.
