Scorpion EXO-R2000/R410/R710/T1200 Face Shield
Geat product works great for blocking the sun. I ordered dark smoke and would recommend to anyone...

I got the silver mirrored visor for my new Scorpion R710 a few months ago. The visor looked great, fit great, and was all around great. It didn't last long though.
This visor comes with some antifog coating on the inside on the visor. This coating made riding at night horrible. The top hemisphere of the visor distorts light and make huge auras around sources of lights. Being in traffic and having all head lights and street lights doing this make it nigh impossible to ride. The bottom half of the visor was great, but I can't ride with my head tilted back looking through the bottom.
I clean my visors with a microfiber cloth and for some reason (I'm mostly certain its the antifog coating) got extremely scratched in the process. Now not only is it hard to see at night, the visor is so scratched on the inside (outside is perfect, same cloth and cleaner) that using it during the day affects my vision because the light shows all the scratching.
The mirror coating is also fading rather quickly around the edges of the visor and near the contact points. It's not just rubbing from contact, it is obviously fading and becoming clear outside of the majority of the visor, possible where the coating is. My friends visor (same exact visor) is doing the same.
I never had these problems with my HJC helmet. This is my first Scorpion helmet and visor. I'm really disappointed with the silver mirror visor, especially for $55. My HJC visor was about $25-30 at Cycle Gear and I never had an issue after a year and a half and I even crashed in it.
The Antifog coating does work though. It makes it kinda hazy but it's not as bad as fog. I'd personally rather have a better visor and just deal with fog when it happens. The r710 is capable of being cracked open to curb the fog already.

Purchased Silver Mirror and Dark Smoke
I purchased these for my T1200. Both fit well without troubles. I wish the mirror shield was a bit more mirrored and the dark shield was a little darker. Pricing isn't terrible for what you get.

Silver Mirror: Not so silver
I purchased this shield hoping it would be chrome as most silver mirror shields are. Depending on the lighting most of the time it is more dark smoke. Sun protection is on par with dark smoke, but the style is not as chrome as I would have liked it. If you're looking for a chrome shield i'd think twice about one for these helmets.

Good looking replacement visor
I bought this for my EXO-R710 helmet in the blue color. It's a directly replacement and switches out clean and easy with the original. It looks great on my white helmet and is easy to clean after riding with it. It shades very well and makes it so i don't have to worry about sunglasses or anything during the daytime. It gets a bit tough to see around dusk or dawn and should probably be switched with a clear at those times. And in the darkness, i don't recommend wearing at all.
I do wish they would give us more colors for it. I would love a green one!

Simple & Great
Really enjoy using my visor. It has a really good tint that can be used not only during sunny days but overcast, mornings, and even evenings. I've got caught and had to do a night ride with it before and I could still see enough to drive safely home (not a long distance). To that same effect it does great at blocking out the sun on bright days. I strongly recommend the Smoke.

If you haven't had a mirroed face shield read this
the only downside is that the mirror is created by almost like a film of vinyl this is I am sure easily scratch-able so if you're prone to dropping your helmets a lot or being careless with them it will mess up your visor. Whereas the dark and light tint have the plastic color altered so a scratch in that will have no effect in the overall look. Hope this was helpful! I also had the gold mirror too.

Silver Mirror is GREAT
I got the silver mirror visor for my R710 red and black helmet and it fits perfectly and looks even better! Gives a nice tint that's not too dark.
