LaZer Lumino Transitions Face Shield For Full Face Models
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.

Woo hoo! Transitions tech in a shield!
The Lumino shield, for the Lazer Falcon in my application, is great. No clunk secondary shield mechanism needed, and I loved the Nolan VPS one! This is great. And it was Pinlock ready. I received mine as part of a promotional offering but would have been willing to pay for it hands down. On a nice Pacific Northwest day, from cloudy overcast, to pockets of sun the apparent visor tint seemed the same, until lifting the shield a bit at stop lights, then the real range of tint was apparent. It is a little slow to lighten, but shouldn't be a problem. The Lumino with Transitions tech is a great deal and well recommended.

The transitions visor is a wonderful concept. They have the right idea. This combined with the pinlock visor makes a great setup for a total visor solution. The one and only gripe I might have about it is that is just isn't dark enough. I just finished a 3500 mile trip with it,a nd when it's cloudy and you go from shade to open area it does the trick, but when out in the desert with nothing but sun, it's weak. I'll compensate by putting sunglasses on at the same time, but that wasn't the idea. At night the visor is clear enough, but just needs more kick in the bright sunlight.

Pretty much perfect
This product is great. The tint is perfect and its absolutely clear. It changes tint really fast and seals tightly. Definitely recommend it

Even better than I expected
One of the features why I've chosen Lazer helmet was Lumino Transitions Face Shield. And in fact it covered all my expectations. You even can't notice when the darkness of this visor changes. All you feel is a comfort of the ride.

Not quite dark enough for me
It works great and just as advertised. My commute is directly into the sun both ways. This shield just doesn't get dark enough for me. It is probably dark enough for most riders though.

Lumino Transitions Shield LT Review
Overall, I’m pretty happy with the Lumino face shield. I’ve had it for about 6 months and several thousand miles (commuter and weekend trips). The transition from clear to medium smoke is handy.
The shield goes from completely clear to medium dark. Opinions vary, but it’s dark enough to keep you from squinting. If you tend to ride with shades on, this shield is not for you. The shield does not work well with polarized sunglasses.
The optical clarity is good; you can forget your shield is down while riding. The clarity takes a slight hit if you have the pinlock insert in, but your shield will absolutely fog without it.
The price is competitive compared to other companies, but it's not cheap. It is excellent bang for the buck if you get it with the helmet or using a special deal.
Bottom line: Great for use on a track or sport riding. Not for people who are very sensitive to brightness or ride with sunglasses.
