What a disappointment!
5 Stars to revzilla Customers Service, ZERO stars to this faceshield...
I have a Lazer Osprey genious helmet which I love.
I decided to upgrade to a full carbon version, and also upgrade the visors of both helmets to WideRace Lumino.
I have pre-ordered two shields in Jul 5th, and had to wait for the shipping up to Sep 30th.
No problem waiting, I thought, as I was buying the ultimate shield. Was I really?
Facts have proven me wrong!
Based on the price and Lazer advertisement, I expected shields to be nothing but perfect, but in reality they are anything but...
Pinlock insert came aready installed on the shield, but shield behind pinlock was not perfectly clear. No Problem, I can just remove it, clean the shield and put it back, right? wrong!
Silicone seal was adhered to the shield and after removal some "crums" were left over the visor. I had a lot of trouble cleaning the shield, and Pinlock insert seal was damaged.
Besides that, The whole pinlock insert does not sit perfectly over the shield anymore, and there is no tension adjustment for it, as the usual excentric pins system that works so well is not used in this case. Pinlock insert gets deformed, pressed against the visor at the fixing points, and borders are lifted, leaving a gap between seal and shield.
Combined Tear-off posts - Pinlock fixing pins is a mess. it is just impossible to tight the bolts and not deforming the pinlock insert. Removing the white reflexive band to install the red one is also a mess, glue residues are left over the shield, again, a lot of trouble to get it perfectly clean...
I am really disapointed with all the above, but at least I still have the second shield, new in the box, let's give it a try!
Even though this shield is also not perfectly clean behind pinlock insert, I had just removed the pinlock protective film and installed the shield on the helmet, but.....
It just fogs! Testing the helmet under fresh, humid weather, this shield just fogs completely, totally different from regular pinlock inserts I just love and trust so much.
Better getting back to standard faceshields and regular PInlock inerts, what a disappointment and a waste of money!
5 Stars to Revzilla because when I ordered the Lazer Osprey Hyper sport full carbon helmet back in July, it was supposed to ship with a Lumino shield (regular type, not WideRace), but probably due to the waiting for the visors, the helmet that was actually shipped came with a normal clear visor. Contacting Customers service to report that, I was informed that Revzilla was going to refund me the value of one WideRace shield, which helped to "ease my pain" a litlle bit. Thanks for that, Revzilla!
