Shoei CWR-1 Transitions Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
Constantly swapping face shields or always carrying 2 in case you are out late on day has always been a frustration/inconvenience. I'm glad Shoei has the transitions technology and i'm glad it's the actual technology and not some knock-off. It gets just as dark as my dark smoke, albeit it's a slightly different color.

The CWR-1 face shield works as advertised.
I found the two minutes it take to change for the available light, was well worth now having to carry a second visor with me on longer trips.

Only con to this is the price its kinda high but hey it is well worth the price to not have to carry a spare shield

If there is a better motorcycle accessory than a Shoei RF1200 with a transitions face shield I have yet to find it.
Riding in sunlight, the shield darkens very quickly and makes riding comfortable, eliminating any blinding sun. The optics of the shield are great too.
When the sunlight fades, the shield transitions back to clear quickly, eliminating the need to carry both a smoked and clear shield for all day riding.
The shield is pinlock ready, however there is no pinlock insert you would have to either reuse your existing pinlock insert or purchase a separate one.
It's a little pricey, but for the hours of riding without having to worry about swapping out face shields or swapping in and out of sunglasses it's well worth it.
As always, Revzilla shipped fast and free, and I was able to knock a bit off the price using some Revzilla bucks.

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE.
this is star trek level technology in your helmet. Worried about your visor? Never worry again. This thing changes so dang fast you'll hardly notice it when blasting into a tunnel and out another. I think i'd even use this visor in Switzerland, if I manage to scoot down there for a moto tour.
this is the "one visor to rule them all"
I have a mirror one for when I want to look cool at squidbucks, but I never use it anymore.

THIS COULD BE THE FUTURE
The Shoei CWR-1 Transitions Face Shield could be the standard in the future of face shields. I have been wearing eyeglasses for the last twenty-five years. About four years ago a started using a Transitions Lens and have been pleased with them. So, when I ordered my new Shoei helmet I also ordered their new Transitions Face Shield. This shield works. No more carrying separate sunglasses. No more worrying about a ride running late and getting caught out at night with only a dark smoke-tinted shield. I've only given this shield four stars because I need to see how it holds-up over time, but so far it is a winner.

Best all around
Haven't had the chance to use it in the sunlight much. Eastern Washington is still a little cold. It does fit just like the original that came with my Shoei RF-1200. Same with the pin lock shield. It came packaged nicely, no damage at all. Lots of instructions. So far I'd recommend this to everyone.

Does what it needs to do
Have only had the product for about a week or so now, but so far so good. The visor pops right into the helmet where your existing one was.
The performance is great. Seems to transition pretty quickly in the Florida sun. Pretty dark, even before my bike is warmed up.
I don't drive through any tunnels or anything, so I cannot comment on that aspect.
