Shoei CW-1 Spectra Face Shield 4.6 5 120 120
A bit pricey but overall good quality Yeas, it's too pricey for shield. Overall good quality, no scratches after a couple months of intense usage. It was a good surprise for me it's pretty comfortable to use in the evenings, but not when it's totally dark of course August 31, 2015
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 August 17, 2015
Looks good... 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. August 10, 2015
Looks Killer The shield makes my matt black helmet look totally killer. July 27, 2015
Must have The pinlock insert and facesheild really should be purchased together. They compliment one another nicely. Good product. although a bit pricey. But worth it. July 20, 2015
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 Charles Mays July 8, 2015
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. June 29, 2015
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. June 22, 2015

Jon H: I have the Gold Spectra. I'm in Texas where the sun is fairly intense and would equate the tint to a medium smoke but with greater clarity. I've compared it similar to my Ray Ban sunglasses, but not as dark as my dark Oakley's. For me, when it's really bright I find myself squinting a bit, but not uncomfortably. It's perfect when it's partly cloudy.

The big question most people have is can they use it at night or do they need another visor. I'm in Dallas and the Dallas suburbs, so there's some light from the city, cars, etc. that helps illuminate the road, so I find that this visor actually works quite well at night... it's doesn't keep me from not seeing things. This morning I rode to work on a dark, overcast, about to rain, day and it was perfectly fine... I didn't even think twice about having this visor on.

So, it works decently in bright sun and is light enough to carry you through some dark times. Anything darker and I would say you probably need another night time visor.

Bottom line... it works fine, and there's nothing else out there that looks this awesome... super hero awesome!!

A s: I have used the gold and blue mirrored CW-1 shield, and strangely enough from the rider's view both of them provide a medium, colorless tint. Great for reducing sun glare, and perfectly good any time except early dawn and night (obviously). They are a little tougher to install than the clear one, because you cannot see the grooves and springs behind, but it's not that tough - the Shoei shield installation system is one of the best.

Stephen B: It's about half way in between.
Caution - lots of internal reflection. I had mirrored chrome. Looked cool, but the reflection problem was bad enough that I went back to dark smoke -- which is perfect for daytime So Cal riding.

Jon G: Reflection how? Like your self looking back at you with the helmet on? No. When the helmet is on, and there is no light coming behind the shield, other people can see THEIR reflection in your shield. I had no weird visual issues with either my smoke or mirrored shield. I would be more worried about scratching them. Mar 10, 2014

Stephen B: I ride in Southern California. Very bright!
I used the Spectra mirrored shield one time and gave it away because the inside reflections were too distracting.
I much prefer the dark smoke shield which is great for daytime riding. No internal reflections at all. However, it can't be used at night.

Kevin R: no.
I do not see my own reflection on the inside of this shield. I don't think the backside of the coating is as reflective as the outside, and/or it is close enough to your face that I think it prevents that from happening.

Smeggy: I've been a big fan of chrome for a long time. Gets a bit toasty in Sydney during summer and I used to have dark smoke on the old BMW hats I had but went to chrome on the Shoei hats. I could not put it down to the visor but it felt better inside, both makes were white (yep, I'm boring) but the Shoei felt better...might be down to the venting but the front of my face felt better in direct sun. I have a chrome visor on my new Qwest and it stays on day or night. However, this is mostly city or suburban riding so street lighting is always on. No doubt if I was out somewhere rural I would be swapping it for a clear visor at night, the light reduction is not severe but I woud prefer the full picture out in the sticks. Aug 29, 2011

Joey F.: The dark smoke is really dark and designed for bright, sunny, daytime riding. If you want a shield that will work best on cloudy days and at dusk, I would not go with a dark smoke. Anytime we choose to use a colored or darkened/tinted shield, it's important that we have a pair of good polycarbonate eyeglasses on if we find ourselves in a situation where we need to ride with the shield partially or wholly in the up position due to low light. Jun 27, 2011
Reply to Joey F. Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: I typically find the dark smoke option to be the darkest for any shield. The Chrome Mirror or Silver color options tend to sit in-between light smoke and dark smoke as far as visibility goes. For cloudy or low light conditions, I would consider an amber or yellow shield as it improves contrast for best visibility in shadows. Apr 25, 2011

jesse980315: i have dark tint (smoke) on my cx-1 shield... and often wear dark oakley (ducati of course) glasses underneath... the dark tints good, it takes the edge off, but it not so dark you need to worry about it on a cloudy day... night time out of the city sucks but cloudy days are fine.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Timothy G: Hi David,

My experience is the Spectra range work far better at both glare reduction, as well as minimising heat.

I've used a range of Arai, Shoei and aftermarket faceshields and I have been very happy with mine.

David K: I have both and neither one gives me a glare. I definitely prefer dark smoke as autumn approaches as the sun sets a bit sooner. With the dark smoke you need to be disciplined to get home before sunset or your screwed. Nov 25, 2013

Jon G: i have both shields and do not notice a difference between the two. when it is bright, i wear sunglasses as well, with both. i bought the mirrored shield more for looks than functionality. Oct 14, 2013

Dena J: Dark smoke may be better. Though the spectra is so close. If you're worried on money then get the dark smoke cause there isn't a huge difference for the price. Dec 8, 2013
Reply to Dena Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David N: Dark smoke would work better for that. This performs the same as a light smoke visor. The mirror finish seems to just add privacy and a "cool" look. Oct 15, 2013

A shopper asked: Does the CW-1 Spectra faceshield fit the Shoei MODULAR helmet? Sep 3, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
VinnieT: The only helmets that the CW-1 will fit is the X-12 and the RF-1100 helmet. Those lids are not modular type helmets. They are geared to track riders and posers. As a matter of fact, I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would have a modular helmet. Think about it... You're riding around with the face guard down (the safest position). All of a sudden you think to yourself that... "Hey, maybe this is too safe... After all, look at those Harley guys with their (not DOT approved) helmets... And what about the guys in Utah, they don't even have a helmet law!" So you throw caution to the wind and you raise your face guard on the modular lid. Now if you have to come off the bike your chin can enjoy the asphalt.

By the way, I'm sure that Shoei sells a tinted version for your helmet, just call the guys at Revzilla... They are good with advise and you never get the feeling that they are rushing you off of the phone.
