Shoei CW-1 Spectra Face Shield
I bought this face shield to replace one I damaged when I low sided my bike. Not too dark but takes the harsh edge out of the sunlight. Not so fun at night when you forget your clear shield. Makes an annoying whistle at interstate speeds which the clear the helmet came with didn't. All in all expensive but held up when I needed it too. If not for the whistle this would be 5/5.
5/5 on looks, if that gives you the warm fuzzies.

Great for reducing glare. No worries driving in full sun, has uv protection. Worked real well in the rain. I use Plexus Plastic Cleaner, Protectant and Polish to clean it and keep it looking good. Its holding up well with no defects after several hundred miles.

Love the mirror tint, looks great and hasn't scratched yet after about a hundred miles of use and plenty of bugs.

No complaints. Product was exactly as described. I haven't had any chipping issues that some people have talked about, but we'll see how it fairs against a full season.

Looks Good -- Be Careful to Avoid Scratching
The shield looks great, the quick change mechanism works with this shield just like it does all shields for the RF-1100. There is a disclaimer suggesting you shouldn't ride at night, but allows for more nighttime visibility than a standard tinted shield.
My only complaints are that it scratches easily. For the price paid, I wish it were a bit more resistant to scratching. Most have buffed out, but I already have a few permanent scratches from normal riding. It also fogs more easily than my standard clear and tinted visors. However, if you want a mirrored shield, this fits the bill.

Not bad, but not great
I got this for my X-12 and it really ups the look to the next level! I went with the gold mirror and it blocks the sun perfectly. I would not recommend this at night though. The downsides to this shield: it's expensive and there is no anti-fog coating.

Keeps minimum UV
Keeps your face in shade. Keeps your face in private too.
