Scorpion EXO-1100/500 Face Shield
Dark smoke really helps!
Fits just like the stock visor, the venting switch worked just fine. The dark smoke version doesn't look dark in the picture or off of the helmet but on the bike it really made a difference.
I didn't notice any distortion or mirroring when on the bike.

Great face shield!
It is easily attached and removed, and the tint is awesome...it's very clear to look through and blocks plenty of sunlight...it also looks great on the helmet!

OEM replacement - it is what it is
This is Scorpion's factory replacement visor, at the same price as everywhere else. If you need a new visor, you need a new visor; your only choice is where to buy it.
Their "anti-fog technology" seems pretty much worthless - if it's cold and/or humid, it's going to fog. At least this helmet/visor design lets you crack the visor a bit to clear fogging while in motion.

brought the light smoked and clear replacements.
light smoked is great during the day, not so much at night when out of town, so a quick switch to the clear and im back out killin bugs. And after an around the mountain afternoon ride (Taranaki, New Zealand) the face sheild is pretty much hidden behind a layer of dried out bugs. pop off the sheild run under the tap, soft cloth and cleaner and its good to go.

soft and expensive
i've had this face shield since i bought the helmet from revzilla many months ago now. the fit is good, the clarity is good. but i have 2 major gripes with it, as compared to other recent face shields i have had. (ICON, etc#. 1) it is way too soft and scratches just too easily. i use the softest, cleanest cloth #jeweler's) you can get and use it sparingly. yet scratches have accumulated to the point it is affecting vision/clarity. 2) the ridiculous lever to crack open the shield 1/4 inch is well intended, but adds complexity and i'm sure cost to the shield. i strongly suggest just adding a detent position and dumping the lever. related to the lever: the 'lock' position is also worthless. most shields i've owned, are plenty secure in any detent position to stay in place at any speed. this is again another questionable feature that should be dumped......

Very expensive for a shield...but it's cool, so...
It's a shield, not much to say really.
I think Scorpion would sell 3x as many if priced reasonably (<$25). I only paid $159 for my entire Exo-500 helmet/clear shield/bag but paid another $50+ for the extra mirrored shield. I'm crazy, but I look good!! ;)

Really like the mirror finishes but they are a scratch magnet

XoO1100 face shield
The Scorpion XO1100 shield is good as far as performance and noise. My only complaints are that
1) the anti fog coating on the inside scratches way too easily, which degrades the visability. The shield has enough venting (in my experience) to keep it from fogging up, even in rainy weather.
2) the shield mounting locks are a real pain! Especially after the shield has been taken off and on for cleaning a number of times.
Other than that, this is a good helmet. I only wish it was Snell rated.
