Scorpion EXO-R2000 / EXO-R410 Face Shield
An aesthetic sun protection option for your helmet.
I purchased the Silver-Mirror version of this face-shield and have been riding with it for about 2 weeks. So far, I can't say enough good things about it.
It blocks the sun surprisingly well compared to the other mirrored shields/sunglasses on the market today. Even when going directly into the sun, which always seems to be the case during my commute, the glare is reduced well enough so you're able to stay aware of oncoming traffic and any hazards you may run into.
For those cold mornings, though, even though Scorpion has supposedly the best anti-fog coating on the market, I still find myself cracking the visor to rid the inside of fog and moisture. Being new to riding and not exactly experienced with a wide array of helmets/face-shields, this may just be how it is across the board, but I feel that the anti-fog isn't doing as much as it could, but still very good when the conditions allow.

Works just like it should
I bought the dark smoke face shield for sunny San Diego weather - I use it pretty much daily and it helps to darken my view & block out glare like a pair of sunglasses. I definitely recommend it for daytime riding. I switch out to the clear face shield at night (which is super easy on the EXO-R410) since the dark smoke is pretty heavily tinted.

The mirror visor is like wearing sunglasses and there is no reflections from the sun.

Pretty much got what I expected, finish was clean. Shield keeps the helemet cooler by keeping out sunlight.

Dark Smoke Review (EXO-R2000)
This one actually came with my EXO-R2000. It works excellently and looks awesome with its sleek design! You do not need sunglasses at all. I will say that it works surprisingly well at night. Despite that information, I do not recommend riding with it at night (I forgot my clear one in my other backpack once). You'll be much better off with the clear. The shield changes are quick and easy. As for airflow, its as best as a shield can be when you tilt it up with the built-in helmet lever.
I highly recommend this! I plan on getting the silver one in the future.

great look, but can't help feeling it's overpriced
I bought a silver mirrored face shield to go with my white Scorpion EXO-R410 Helmet. It fits well and shield changes are quick and easy. Within the first month of use I'd already noticed a blemish/scratch on the shield, but I suppose that's par for the course? (I'm not sure, this is my first helmet.) On super bright days I've considered wearing sunglasses underneath for additional darkening, but 95% of the time this is all you need during an all-day ride. Airflow is adequate when one side of the shield is tilted up by the built-in helmet lever; not much else to say there.
Overall i'm quite satisfied with the product. I can't help but think it's overpriced for a piece of plastic, but I'd buy it again considering that the EXO-R410 feels like a good value for the price point and adding on an extra tinted/mirrored shield gives me a full field-of-view (and cooler look) for only $55 more than a $160 stock helmet.

Fits like it should
The shield fits the helmet just like the one that came with it. The quick-change scorpion tabs make shield changes quick and easy.

Good for day and night riding provides sun protection and is super easy to install.
