Scorpion EXO-1100/500 Face Shield
Can't believe I didn't buy one sooner
Ordered a new set of cheek pads for my EXO-500 and decided to grab a new clear visor and finally picked up the dark smoke lens. I can't believe I didn't get one sooner. I mean, the lid comes with the drop-down shield inside the visor, but a) the tint adds that perfect touch so you only add the drop-down when you face the sun head one, and it looks absolutely killer. I stopped carrying my clear shield and just have a pair of Z87 safety glasses under my seat for the night rides home.
Yeah. It looks that good. Stop thinking about it and just grab one. You won't regret it. Plus, after a couple switches, I can swap out one visor and get the next one locked in in under 15 seconds. Two twists on the side, the pins line up super easy, lock it in and you're done. Scorpion seriously hit the mark with that shield change system btw.

Great for city life
I live in Los Angeles, where it's sunny during the day and bright with lights at night. I got the gold mirror tint to protect my sensitive eyes. It looks very stylish, does a good job protecting your eyes and face, and it's easy to switch visors once you get the hang of it.
I wouldn't reccomend wearing the tinted version at night outside of well lit areas. It's okay for busy areas, but too dangerous for a dark, windy road. Also, I don't know if it's all visors, but these feel like scratch magnets. I'm referring to the stock visor that came with the helmet. The gold mirror doesn't have any... Yet.

way better than stock
love this shield - cuts down on glare and haze during the day and not too dark to ride with at night. the fact that others can't see in is a def perk too!

No complaints here
I needed a new face shield and decided on the blue mirrored shield. It looks amazing on my Scorpion EXO-500 Crude and the tint is perfect for my commute.

Love the look
I got the silver mirror visor for my birthday to go on my helmet. I have to say I really love it and the way it looks with my helmet. I Sharpied my matte black Scorpion EXO 500 and the silver mirror really sets it off. I wash it gently with dish soap and water so as not to rub off the mirrored finish.

I love this visor so much. It attached to my Scorpion helmet easily. It cleans up easily with proper care. Use it every day.
Love this visor.
With the Scorpion and the inner flip down sun visor it works well doubled up riding into intense sunrise or sunset conditions.
I typically use this visor without the inner shade pulled down for full face protection.
I ride also with my Arai currently clear visor only. Considering this for my Arai if available also for day rides.
Do not ride with this visor after dark. My commutes take me over mountain passes and through canyons which are pitch black at night.
Even in city lighting, you would not use this visor after dark.
It says "If tinted, for daytime use only."
Put your clear visor back on at night.
I do wish it came with some foam case like for sunglasses to protect your investment in your backpack or side bags. It just has the soft cloth wrap that comes with it.
For the price, I feel they could slip in some foam shield case.

Once you get it on all is well. Make sure it's in right or it will come right off when you are riding.

The quick change mechanism is a little tenuous and diffiuclty to use occasionally. I like the idea of the vent position but, again, poorly employed and would rather have just a lower position that I can open the shield from. Like the light smoke, especially when paired with the dark smoke inner visor.
