Shoei CW-1 Face Shield
Half Smoke shield, nice but pricey
I like this shield. It looks cool and does provide a decent amount of sun protection if you tilt your head down a bit. I'm not a night rider, but I have ridden with it at dusk and have had no problems. Taken a few good whacks from all the cicadas around with no damage so far. I think the price is a bit high but the fit is good and the on/off system for my 1100 helmet is very easy to operate.

I purchased the shield in Dark Smoke for a Shoei Qwest. I am happy with it overall. The tint is nice but could be just a bit darker. I am not disappointed in it but with an option of light smoke or dark smoke I would expect dark smoke to be extra dark. It is almost the equivalent of a good pair of sunglasses in darkness but as dark as my Ray Bans would be perfect. Riding in the morning staring into the rising sun is the only time I truly wish it was darker and I have been known to nit pick. The mechanism for switching the shield is easy but I have yet to master switching shields in gloves which I could do with greater ease on a previous helmet. It is optically clear and presents an excellent field of view. Bugs come off easily and I have yet to scratch it. I am hard on gear and this speaks well for the product.

This shield is great looking and provides good sun reduction and clarity
This is the first time I ever bought a tinted shield and it was the best thing I did. I tried a modular helmet before with a drop down sun shield but that meant looking through my glasses, the drop down shield and the outer shield - too many! With my glasses and this tinted shield I got what I wanted. The shield can easily be switched with the original clear one for night use.

The tint on this is fairly dark. Not dark enough to use without sunglasses but it works great to cut down on glare while using sunglasses.

Fit like a glove
Just wish the tint was a little darker.

Very good visor for sunny days
Easy to install and seems to be excellent quality. Very good optical quality - does a good job blocking bright sunlight.

super quick shipping
Love how quickly orders get filled and shipped. You're going to pay the same price everywhere for the shields but this one arrives the fastest without extra shipping charges.

Great product but expensive
Works perfect, did take some small easy adjustments to fit the insert so that the seal was resting properly against the visor but haven't been able to fog it up at all.
