Shoei CW-1 Faceshield

The Shoei CW-1 Face Shield fits Shoei Qwest, Shoei RF1100 and Shoei X-12 Helmets. Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back into contact with the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal.

Features:

  • Three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A and B rays
  • Pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow
  • Mellow Smoke refers to a tint that is lighter than the Light Smoke shield

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Half-tone smoke
As with all Shoei items, the quality is top rate. The half-tone smoke is a good compromise - it gives sun protection of the darker shields in the upper portion reducing eye strain, but not eating up too much light.

I live in an area where roads can transition from full sun to deep shade quickly. I always felt that the light smoke didn't block enough light, but the dark too much when dropping into deep shade. The half-tone does a great job of protecting from the high sun while leaving the ability to see clearly in transitional light situation.

One thing folks might want to know is that the tint has a distinct purple hue. It's not really noticeable from behind, but it's not the more neutral grey of the smoke lenses.

My only fault is that this lens is at a premium price. I do like it, and do recommend it. But it would be a better value at the same price point as the clear and light/dark smoke versions

Light smoke, ideal for wider range of riding conditions
I've had a Shoei RF-1100 for a while now (great helmet), but only 2 shields: one clear and the other in dark smoke. This is why I needed an in-between tint and the light smoke is excellent.

The dark shield is great for bright, sunny days (and it looks awesome), but it's too dark for evening and nights. Sometimes I get caught out on rides that go really late and have to ride with the dark smoke shield up to really see. I think the light smoke is a great functional balance between clear and the dark shields. I don't mind riding with the lighter tint at night.

Love it!
Bought this and I actually like it better than the original clear one I have. It doesn't fog up like the original one that comes on the helmet. I got caught with it riding at night and I could still see perfectly fine. Totally worth it.

Quality Shield
I bought this to replace an off-brand CW1 shield that I got from ebay. I am very happy with this shield. It's much higher quality for a reasonably amount of money.

Cant go wrong
I ordered the dark smoke for 2 reasons. 1) I needed something to prevent me from squinting when the sun was in my face, 2) For some privacy, and it accomplished both of these. You cant see into the helmet when the shield is down, but you can see out of it just about as good as the original during the day. At night though it's a different story. I wouldn't recommend using this shield alone for a entire day but I knew that prior to my purchase from some other reviews. I just swap my original in once it gets dark. Awesome product though and I wouldn't expect less from SHOEI!

CW-1 Halftone/Halftint - not quite dark enough
A few weeks ago I bought the halftone/halftint visor, hoping that the top would be a "dark smoke" and fade to clear at the bottom. With the stock photos, the actual tint appeared to be quite dark. Unfortunately, the tinting at the top is very slight. If looking ahead on a clear day, it's enough to make the sky look a little darker as if there was a possibility of bad weather later in the day. However, it's not dark enough at all to block out the sun even a little bit unless the sun is directly overhead (and not shining straight at your eyes). The best way to describe it is to say that it will reduce the total amount of light entering your eyes during the day, but won't actually protect against sun glare much at all. It's a fantastic concept, but it just needs to be much darker. If it faded from a dark smoke it would be perfect; you could adjust the amount of light getting in just by moving your head, allowing it to be worn in all conditions.

The good:
Some tint is always better than no tint
Looks nice
Shoei fit and finish is perfect as usual
Optical clarity is perfect, zero distortion
Can safely be used at night

The bad:
It costs more than the standard visors, while offering less protection
The tint is not NEARLY dark enough

Overall, I would not recommend the half-tone. It's slightly better than a clear shield, but probably worse overall than even their "mellow smoke" (though I have not seen one in person to verify). It's just not dark enough. And it costs more. It's a good replacement for someone who generally prefers clear shields anyway, but don't expect too much from it.

Yong B on Jun 5, 2016
I had a mirrored visor on my previous helmet which allowed me to ride on very sunny days with no issues as far as brightness goes. However, when the sun was hitting the helmet in the right places I could see the reflection of my face on the inside of the shield. I bought a new Shoei Qwest (amazing helmet) and needed to upgrade the visor for sunny day riding as it comes with the factory clear. I'm hoping since this one is not mirrored I won't have the reflection issue.

Anyone tried the orange shield?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have a clear Orange shield for my Shoei helmet. It is an Enhanced lens that is great for cloudy/rainy weather and at night but strain your eyes severely in the sunny weather. The clear Yellow shields are also Enhanced and similar.
Want to know if this is to dark for the overcast skies and rides with lotes of shades from trees. Can you see the road clearly as to avoid pot holes, bump and other obstacles? I'm concern that the road won't be seen as clearly as a clear lense.
A shopper on Apr 21, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I have the dark smoke and as long as it's daylight out you'll be able to see fine even under the shade. I live in NYC and I can ride with the dark smoke at night with just the city lights (I usually leave it open) but I'd say in daylight under shade that would overall be brighter than just city lights at night.

It def won't be as clear as the clear shield but you won't have any trouble with the dark smoke during the day. It's about the same as pair of dark tinted sunglasses I would say.
Based on some of the comments below, I'm getting the impression that the Dark smoke is a little too dark if the sun is down. So, I would like to go for a little less dark. In that case I would like to know which one out of the mellow and light smoke is darker? and how far apart are they? If anyone could help me out, i would be very thankful.
Ammar K on Oct 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Ok Mr K - Safety should be of great concern here. Dark visors look cool and perpetuate a dark kinda cool dark rider image but not very practical to use at night.
I am a self-taught rider (7 Busas since 2001), and have found that waring the right shades/glasses has an advantage over tinted visors. Ie; when its sunny, your CLEAR visor together with any of 1000's of shades/colors gives the rider the world as far as tint and color from which to choose w/o compromising night riding safety - please, always use your visor and safety equipment wisely so you could enjoy your riding experiences to the full.

Iy is very wise of you to find out about this issue now instead of during a night ride where much more is at stake- your life; BRAVO !!
And if not, which shield would work / do you carry it?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, This visor only works on the newest lines of Shoei Helmets. The one you are looking for is CX-1V.
How is the half tone smoke when riding at night?
A shopper on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Half smoke at night isn't an issue for me. It's not as dark in the day as I would like but that does help at night. I no longer use the shield. I've upgraded to a new helmet with built in shade. ... works much better.
If the dark smoke was compared to tint on a car, what percentage would you say it is? (The less the percent the darker it is)
A shopper on Aug 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 15% maybe 10%. No visibility loss what-so-ever. Highly recommend.
How is the half tone smoke when riding at night?
ricky d on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have no problems in the dark. The tinted part on the upper portion is more of a medium tint than a smoke.
Will this fit the RF-1200?
Charles Gabriel C on Dec 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the CW-1 face shield will not fit the new RF-1200
The RF-1200 uses the new CWR-1 face shield
¬øDoes it fit to the Shoei XR-1100 (El Capitan) helmet? ¬øDoes the helmet size matter?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The CW-1 fits the XR-1100 and its U.S. counterpart, the RF-1100. There is only one size, so helmet size does not matter.
How do i order the optional pin locks
A shopper on Jun 6, 2011
