Shoei CWR-1 Photochromatic Pinlock Faceshield for RF-1200 by Transitions

Transitions Photochromic technology allows visors to automatically and seamlessly change from clear to dark in sunlight. The process works when photochromic dyes embedded into the lens or shield react to UV light, changing levels of darkness with the sun.

When UV light is removed, a chemical reaction driven by ambient heat reconverts the activated photochromic molecules to their original, clear form and the lens fades.

Features:

  • 100% UV Protection
  • Fades to 50% transmission in two minutes
  • Anti-reflective Coating
  • Pinlock ready
  • Manufactured by Transitions, the leading manufacturer of photochromatic lenses world-wide
  • Pinlock Lens Insert sold separately 

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

Shoei CWR-1 Transitions Pinlock-Ready Face Shield 4.7 5 12 12
Worth the wait As other reviewers have said, knowing that Shoei was planning to release a Transitions shield was one of the reasons I chose the RF1200. The Transitions shield works, as shown in the attached photos; one taken indoors, and one out. The sun was behind a thin cloud in the outdoor shot, so the shield is not fully darkened. I'm glad I acted quickly when the product became available, since it appears Revzilla's first shipment has already sold out. July 25, 2015
LOVE IT!!!!! BEST SOLUTION EVER. WORKS GREAT DURING THE DAY AND WORKS GREAT AT NIGHT. NO PROBLEMS RIDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. IT DARKENS A LITTLE IN A CLOUDY WEATHER BUT NOT MUCH. YOU WILL GET USED TO IT JUST BUY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF July 16, 2015
Love this shield I do a lot of long distance traveling and it's nice not having too carry a clear shield for night riding along with the tinted for day time. Adjusts to the light a lot faster than I expected. My ONLY regret is that I didn't buy two right away simply because the wife wants one bad. July 11, 2015
Good shield, don't have to worry about changing I really like this shield and felt it was worth the wait. During mid-day its dark enough to make it comfortable to ride since the sun is high in the sky. At dawn/dusk if you manage to ride into the sun it cuts out enough light that your not squinting. Not the best solution but way better than buying two shields and having to carry them around if you get stuck having to ride at night. July 6, 2015
Excellent Everyone should have a transitions auto darkening face shield! June 29, 2015
Works Great I've been waiting for months to finally get one and it works great! So much easier having this than trying to wear sunglasses. Would definitely recommend buying this. June 1, 2015
It beats carrying glasses... This shield is a really great idea. It works-- automatically darkens when sunny. Only concern that I have is that it says there are three levels, clear, medium, and dark. I've never seen it darker than the medium. And its just not quite dark enough. I like it but I feel like it always needs to be a little darker than it is. May 26, 2015
Get this!! After riding with sunglasses under the shield, this is the way to go. I commute for my night shift job, so I ride in when the sun is up and ride home when it's dark. Pinlock shields work fine for making sure your shield doesn't fog, but doesn't do a thing for the sunglasses under your shield. This eliminates that problem, and also eliminates the comfort issue of riding with shades on under your lid. Going in to work, the shield is nice and dark, it's clear on the way home. It's by far safer than riding with a shield that's 24/7 tinted. There are some slight double-vision issues with the pinlock at night (why Shoei doesn't recommend using it at night), but it's pretty easy for me to compensate for this. All in all, I love this shield. It's the best thing you can do for your helmet. May 16, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Leslie S: Was using a transition lens..been waiting for Shoei to come out with a full face shield that would transition as well. I can all ready tell this is a great product and hope the material used lasts for a long time. I am adding a simple stick on invision clear anti-fog lens as well. Jul 24, 2015
Gregory S: I have a transitions shield for a bell helmet and i love it! My shoei is better at high speeds and more quiet so i'd prefer to use it on the shoei. Jul 16, 2015
Jairo M: I purchased this item to avoid having to switch out visors on the go. Jul 16, 2015

D A: less to carry, I've always wanted one of these. comfort during the bright sunshine, and safety driving home at night. May 14, 2015
ED R: To reduce swapping face shields often. May 8, 2015
eric t: i have been waiting for the transitions lens for the shoei since i got the helmet. i have a lazer helmet with the transitions and i love it. Apr 3, 2015
Scott F: I really hate changing out shields, but with the RF-1000 pinlock, I was able to use a clear lens and get colored insets. With the CWR-1, I don't have that option, which makes it hard for me when I commute to and from work, not knowing if I will stay late and will have to be riding with a dark shield. Jul 21, 2014
Richard B: I can't wait to not have to carry sunglasses with me in case it's bright out! May 5, 2014
Allan H asked: What's Shoei's logic with introducing this shield so late in the season - nearly a year after the helmet? Was expecting it in the first quarter of 2014, per the hype accompanying the launch of the RF-1200 last fall. Are there production issues? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Shoei has embraced the photochromic tech. Just not understanding their product cycle... May 1, 2014

Allan H: The release date keeps slipping. When the helmet was release in the fall of 2013 the photochromic shield was said to be coming in January '14. Then it was pushed back to August '14. Now, it's been pushed again to January '15. Shoei, I'm just speculating here, but I would just about think anyone who wanted this has already gone another direction. Anyone from Revzilla know what the real issue is with Shoei's production cycle? When there are already photochromic shields on the market, and have been for more than a year, it's hard to imagine what is causing the delay for Shoei on the RF-1200. Aug 10, 2014

Peter M: I talked with a shoei rep at my local motorcycle shop about that yesterday, he said the first batch wasn't up to their safety standards so they told them to scrap it. So they decided to do it over so it's better. This time they said April is much more likely. Feb 28, 2015
Ben Z: I bought the helmet so I could have the new shield. Well, I have had the helmet for a number of months and there seems to be no shield in sight. Available in January? Wanna bet? Aug 13, 2014
Reply to Ben Good answer? Yes (3) No (0)
Vincent G: Yeah...The early january introduction date is ridiculous...the days will have already become very short and the most useful time of the year to own such a shield will be quickly fading. Aug 6, 2014

Andrew D: If I understand the industry correctly, the shields are made by a subcontractor. I have heard that the initial production run was not up to acceptable standards and was withheld (CAVEAT: I've not been able to confirm this, so I view it as a rumor...credible, but a rumor nonetheless). I don't know what those standards were (DOT? Internal Shoei quality control?) or in what way the shields were allegedly deficient. If this is true, consider the upside: The company will not release a product until it's right. It's rarely wise to pre-buy version 1.0 of any product, from any manufacturer, no matter how reputable they may be. There are always issues of one sort or another. Aug 16, 2014

A S asked: I understand this if for the RF-1200 but do they plan to make similar shields for the GT-Air or Neotech helmets? Or is it not going to be a option because of the drop down visor? Aug 7, 2014

John D: Considering that it is going on two years now for the RF-1200 version and it has been pushed back again I would not hold your breath for the even newer models any time soon. Aug 10, 2014

Taylor H: I have no idea about the RF 1100. Sorry. I have an RF 1200. With the incredibly lenient and return policy that Revzilla has, I would suggest getting it and trying. If it does not work, return it. Better yet, maybe find someone with an RF 1200 and compare your helmet with that one. Not an easy task I know. Not much help am I. Apr 30, 2015

Sharif m asked: I understand that it says that this lens is meant for the RF-1200, but I thought that the RF-1200, RF-1100 and the qwest uses the same lens system. I would really appreciate if someone could clarified is this product only works on the RF-1200 or could it also work on either the qwest or RF-1100? Feb 13, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
John D: It only fits the RF-1200 the shields are different for the other models. It really doesn't matter though as this shield will most likely never be available. It has been almost two years now that it has come up for pre-order. I have had it on pre-order more than one and each time after months they just end up refunding the money and pulling it from the site. If you do not have a helmet already go with the Bell that has had a good quality transition shield for years now. Feb 15, 2015

A shopper asked: In one of the reviews, it mentions that Shoei does not recommend the pinlock feature for night riding. Has anyone experienced any hazy vision or double vision when using the pinlock at night? Jul 14, 2015

David H: In my experience, night-time riding with pinlock causes minor distractions- lights of automobiles, streetlights, etc appear doubled to varying degrees of brightness. Not enough of a distraction to not use at night, for me. Jul 14, 2015
