Shoei CW-1 Spectra Faceshield

The Shoei Spectra CW-1 Face Shield fits Shoei Qwest, Shoei RF1100 and Shoei X-12 Helmets. Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal.

Features:

  • Three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A and B rays
  • Pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Not Completely Opaque
In direct sunlight, your face will be slightly visible. I'm sure that's how it is for all mirror visors but for the amount of money I paid, it felt like it should be totally impossible to see through. Most of the time it's good, and I would definitely recommend it if you want the look. I included a comparison photo, one in direct sun and one normal, so you can see what I'm talking about.

Super Hero Look, All Star Performance
Location: Texas = Hot & Sunny

I bought the Gold Spectra CW-1 for my Shoei RF1100 flat black helmet. The reason I bought this particular one was two fold: first, the spectra reflective coating will keep my face cooler, and secondly, because of the looks... it's just flat out awesome looking! Plus, my bike is a deep yellow, so it compliments it nicely.

This is more expensive than a regular smoke lens, but you have to justify the difference yourself. For me, it was the looks... not because of being vain, but it's just different, and different gets you noticed, and being noticed keeps you alive!!

Performance: The tint level is similar to my Ray-Ban sunglasses but not as dark as my dark Oakley's. In Texas, the sun can be intense. While I haven't had to wear sunglasses underneath, I do end up squinting a bit, but not uncomfortably. On occasion because of the intensity, there is a bit of glare back on the inside of the lens... again, not horribly noticeable. The fit onto my helmet required two tries. The first time I didn't read the instructions, but did the job. On my first ride I had a bit of a whistle, so before I adjusted the tension, I read the instructions and did the install again and it worked perfectly. Perfect seal!

Day vs Night Time Riding: This is the big issue for most visors... do I need to carry two visors? For me... No. The tint on this Gold Spectra is dark enough to keep me comfortable during the day, absolutely perfect on a slightly cloudy day, and not dark enough to hinder my riding at night. Now, keep in mind, I'm riding in city / suburban areas, so there is typically ambient light to help illuminate the road, but the visor is perfectly fine. In fact, the day I wrote this review I rode to work on a dark overcast morning and it was absolutely fine... no concerns what so ever.

Issues: Fogging... not a big issue, but I have noticed on cool mornings, it tends to fog quickly when stopped. I may try some divers anti-fog spray, but in reality, this isn't a show-stopper. Yes, I'd love for it not to fog, but I'd also love for it to automatically transition to clear also, but the technology isn't quite there yet. Yes, I know there is a transitions lens coming out for the CW-1, which is what I was waiting on, but they keep delaying it... it's been delayed for over a year, so I decided to get this one and stop waiting. Now, the only other issue is the tint level. I'm even debating as I write this to whether it is really an issue. Because, the tint level right now is perfect for daytime riding and can accommodate night time riding. But, I'd like it a bit darker for daytime, but then that would probably mean I'd need a clear lens for night... so you decide.

Cleaning: One original concern I read about was durability... people say the iridium finish scratches. I don't know about that yet... I store my helmet in the Shoei helmet bag and am not rough with it. It's taken many bugs to the face and cleanings, but looks brand new. I clean it using the Honda Pro Spray & Wax Cleaner that I use on my bike. It lifts the dirt and buffs to a perfect reflective shine.

Verdict: This is a great shield. The gold spectra is just awesome. It keeps it dark enough for day and light enough for night. And the other thing... it's noticeable. Not just noticeable but super hero noticeable... like an astronaut!! I ride a Can Am Spyder so people already think it's a Transformer, but adding this visor just completes the package of awesomeness!!

Everything I could ask for!
Chrome mirrored shield looks perfect on my helmet! Great sun protection and it keeps my face really cool on those sunny days, not too dark when looking through it as a rider but nobody can see your face which I think is a pretty cool feature.
Didn't use it at night and probably wouldn't recommend unless you have some superpowers or something because I had it on my helmet on a rainy day and it doesn't repel water like the original clear shield so my vision was limited, other than that great shield and does't scratch but you CAN'T use dry paper towel to clean it. wet cotton towel works best

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

Fantastic daily shield
Great mix of shading and visibility - even when the night hits I can see very tolerably vs. some of the other shaded shield's I've used. On direct-sun super bright days, it's a little squinty but also totally fine.

Wish you were in Daft Punk? Wanna be the Stig? Buy this
This face shield was recommended to me by a friend. I dislike wearing sunglasses with a helmet because of the uncomfortable pressure on my temples. This visor keeps glare and squinting at bay in bright sunlight, and more importantly makes me look incredibly badass. A few small negative points: it's tinted well for daytime, but is a bit too dark for use at night. This is not unexpected, but it is a bit annoying to have to carry both face shields if I'm riding near dusk. Also, it's pretty expensive for what it is, and there are cheaper knock-offs available (though they probably don't fit the helmet as well.) But aside from the price being steep, I'm really pleased with it.

Awesome helmet. Very quiet. Fogs easy.
Just the right amount of tint. Get the sun cut down to an acceptable level. A little dark at night on country roads but not in the city. This visor on my shoei rf1100 fogs easy in the winter. This has been a huge safety hazzard. Have to ride with shield cracked open. Not good when below freezing. Wish pinloc made one with this tint for the rf 1100.

Works Well
I bought the chrome mirrored for my RF1100 and I like it enough that I bought one for another Shoei helmet I have.
It cuts glare without being too dark in low light. I wouldn't use it at night intentionally, but could make it home if I got caught out

Pricey but worth it
I had a similar shield for my Shoei RF1000. That was also a good shield, however it did have some minor imperfections in the finish. This one is absolutely perfect in fit, finish, tint, and function. Snaps right on the RF 1100. I love the shade of the tint, not too much, not too little. No distortion whatsoever that I can notice.

I think it is a tad overpriced, but when you consider that it is part of the protection scheme of your helmet for your face and eyes, it's hard to put a price on that. Apart from the functionality of this shield, its looks really super on my RF 1100.

If I had another RF1100 helmet, I would probably buy another.

great buy
This shield is great! It is dark enough to have a mirrored view from the outside but light enough for cloudy conditions. At times I read people complaining that it's too light of a mirrored look and you can see through the mirror at times but the reason I disagree with those statements is because if it was a heavier mirror or tint you wouldn't be able to use it when it's cloudy outside. Awesome look and practical. Only downfall is that it's a bit expensive. Overall I am happy with my purchase. I've attached an image for the skeptics.

During bright daylight hours I prefer the comfort, UV protection and yes, STYLE that Shoei always provides it customers with its top of the line face shields. Its look awesome and the blue is a individual style I was looking for to complement my Metallic Black X12. Normally people go for gold or crome shields with black helmets

To look cool, lol. That and riding with the sun in your eye is miserable with a clear screen. Used to use sunglasses but they get destroyed pretty easy and I've had trouble finding ones that work with a helmet and don't have thick frames that block my vision.

I wish I could get rs tiaichi from this site. I want their armor and looks like I will have to get it from sport bike track gear. Revzilla is always my first stop when I want something however.

I need mirrored face shield for Shoei RF1200, do you cary any?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: there is a chrome mirrored sheild
Want to get the chrome mirrored or gold but was wondering how dark is it when looking through it as a rider, dark smoke or light smoke?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Probably somewhere in between. I would not want to wear it at night, like any tinted shield.
Do you see your reflection in the mirrored or smoke shields?
cbare1k on Mar 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Chrome mirror vs dark smoke, which is darker/better sun protection during the day and which is better during low light/early evening conditions.

thanks.
A shopper on Apr 21, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I want to decrease the bright glare and heat from sun , will this visor work better than dark smoke for this? Thanks!!
David M on Oct 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.

Cheers,
Tim
Or do all of them come with pinlock inserts?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Wait, so does the spectra have pinlock post or not? The picture seem to have a "dot" but it does not say so in the description... and we have conflicting answers above...
Appreciate if anyone can clarify. Thanks.
I'm considering getting the Qwest with this.
I'm interested in this for my X-12. Will I need a insert to make it fog resistant? The factory shield fogs up really quickly.
A shopper on Apr 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The pin-lock anti-fog insert works pretty well, though on occasion, a very little fogging does happen at the very bottom of the insert (regardless of adjustment), just below my nostrils, on really cold mornings, but nothing at all problematic. It's 90% better than without the insert.
i only see rs-1100 listed, if not where can i find a spectra for my 1000?
A shopper on Jul 5, 2011
BEST ANSWER: No, this shield does not fir the RF-1000. The one you need is the CX-1V, which I have linked for you below:
Does the CW-1 Spectra faceshield fit the Shoei MODULAR helmet?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
