Shoei CW-1 Spectra Faceshield 4.6 5 85 85
good summer faceshield I was looking for something to help me with California sun and this works perfect. April 16, 2014
Nice I love Shoei helmets and stuff. Very good quality, but a bit expensive March 31, 2014
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 March 29, 2014
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. March 24, 2014
excellent product My second Spectra Facesdhield. Works so well. Great sun and glare protection for dessert riding. March 10, 2014
Gold tint seems to cut glare out very well. Very nice performance, cuts sun glare very well. Also doesn't seem to limit visibility in cloudy conditions like a normally tinted shield would. EXCELLENT PRODUCT! February 24, 2014
Nice, quality face shield. As expected from the Shoei brand, this face shield is good quality and looks good. It's easy to clean, just make sure to care for it as any face shield should be cared for. The silver color goes well with my black w/white RF1100. Also shipped next day! February 3, 2014
Looks cool. Got the blue to go on matte-black helmet and it looks good. A little more expensive than the smoke lens but still cheaper than a pair of sunglasses. No regrets. January 13, 2014

Andres P asked: Do you see your reflection in the mirrored or smoke shields? Mar 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

A s: Nope! I have the blue mirrored CW-1, it's perfect on sunny days. From the rider's view it just darkens the picture - no color, no reflections. Mar 6, 2014

A shopper asked: Chrome mirror vs dark smoke, which is darker/better sun protection during the day and which is better during low light/early evening conditions.

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.

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.

David M asked: I want to decrease the bright glare and heat from sun , will this visor work better than dark smoke for this? Thanks!! Oct 14, 2013
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.
