Shoei CW-1 Face Shield
I thought about non-OEM shields but this one is excellent. Highly recommend and glad I stuck with OEM.

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.

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!

Make sure to re-adjust the helmet for perfect fit.
It's easy to swap out visors. The only problem is that you need to do a little bit of an adjustment after you swamp to make sure the visor stays down on the freeway.
After swamping the visors, the new one sits flush, but if I turn my head to the side on the freeway and then face forward again, I hear the whistling that results from a small gap.
Overall, it looks very stealthy and cool.

Easy install. Poor seal.
Summary says it all. Super easy to install but it doesn't seal properly.

This product is excellent
I purchased the dark smoke version. Great during the day time. can practically stare directly at the sun without feeling any discomfort. Got caught out a few times at night with it. Had no problems riding at night. Wouldnt recommend for low lit areas though. Overall excellent product!

Nice item overall
My only isssue is that there really isnt any scratch resistance. I dropped my helmet once from about two feet offthe ground and the shield now has permanent scratches.
