Shoei CW-1 Spectra Face Shield
Nice shield not too dark
My only complaint with this item is that every scratch from road rocks or whatever instantly show as clear lines on the outside. I can't really tell from inside the helmet however from outside they are an instant eyesore

Used it for several months, I used to have the standard dark tinted shield and it will block more light and make it harder to see your face. This one has a few scratches on it from normal use and cleaning, but nothing that is visible when looking out while wearing it.

The shield makes my matt black helmet look totally killer.

The pinlock insert and facesheild really should be purchased together. They compliment one another nicely. Good product. although a bit pricey. But worth it.

Shoei X12 Spectra Face Shields
I found this gold tinted face shield to be constructed of good quality and performs well. Slightly dark at night but it's not an issue with high intensity head lights. Fits well to the helmet and cleans nicely with the proper materials and methods. Highly recommend it to anyone wanted to add a reflective spectra field shield

It works but not amazing.
It fits fine. It does help with glare. It is not very dark. I still have to wear my sunglasses. Not sure about durability. It does seem to make a little more noise than the pinlock face shield I have.

Great face shield
I've been using a dark smoke shield on my Shoei X12 since I got it a few years ago. I bought a spectra gold shield, mostly because I thought it would look cool. It does, in my opinion, but it also passes a really good quality of light. It's hard to qualify exactly, but compared to the dark smoke shield, I'd say the spectra looks clearer and brighter in similar light, but cuts glare at least as well. It's made by Shoei, so of course the fit is great and the seal is perfect.

An Excellent Product!
This is the 3rd Visor for my Shoei after the stock and 1 replacement. Both earlier ones were clear visors. I would use sunglasses inside the helmet when riding during the day and though was always concerned about safety if I had a fall, but just could not take the glare during day riding. I was waiting for the Photo-chromatic Transition Visor to be launched but finally got tired of waiting for over a year and decided to go for the Spectra Faceshield in Gold tint.
I have a Black and Hi-Viz yellow Helmet and this compliments it perfectly giving it a very Stylish look.
I have ridden long and short distances in all sorts of weather and light conditions including rain, direct sunlight, night time riding (city as well as highway).
I was initially concerned that night riding would be disadvantageous with this visor for obvious reasons, but my doubts were unfounded. I have now ridden many times at night with this Face Shield and can vouch that as long as you have a decent headlight on your bike to light your way, this face shield does not hamper driving at night.
It gives you very decent protection from harsh glare during summer riding also and unless you are riding with sun shining directly into your eyes, this product is perfect for all times.
I am going to make sure that I buy this tinted face-shield every time I change my helmet. Full marks for this product
