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 4.5 5 6 6
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
Amazing, I bought the rf1200 specifically because of the photochromic sheild option I was probably the first person to order this sheild when it finally came out. bought the Rf1200 specifically because of the photochromic sheild option For me the choice was clear, shoei was the only high end company offering this option. AMAZING!!! :Driving during the day looking fresh like money and blocking the sun + not having to suffer at night or change sheild. NOT SO AMAZING : High price. it's not for nothing that shoei warns not to use the pinlock at night, when pinlock is used, night time visit is not 100% more like 80%. Availability seems to be an issue April 29, 2015
Awesome shield I waited sometime for this item to be in stock!! Well worth the wait!! Love this shield!! Works perfect. I have used this shield in the dark, sun, cloudy weather and in the rain. I can not say enough about this shield. I am completely satisfied. The transition is fast enough to never notice any issue with vision it gets dark enough " for me". Vision is crisp and clear. I would recommend this item and when the time comes I would not hesitate to purchase a replacement. April 27, 2015
It was worth the wait! I've been using a Bell RS-1 with the Transitions shield for three years now an it has performed wonderfully with the exception of it's terrible fogging in colder temps. I've known the Shoei RF-1200 was a better helmet but was waiting to purchase one once the Photochromic shield became available. I happened to find a local shop here in Brooklyn that had just gotten the shield in and I bought a Black Metallic RF-1200 at the same time. The fact that the Shoei comes with a pinlock insert for the Transitions shield will cure my fogging ills. Bell Helmets could learn something from Shoei here! The shield is optically clear after checking it out thoroughly. It also gets a little darker that my Bell Transitions does, though the rate of change is the same (as was expected since it's the same technology). (Sorry Revzilla, they got the shield before you did and beat your prices for both as well. I've bought thousands of dollars worth of gear from you in the past year, so I hope you don't mind me posting this review, though I purchased elsewhere). April 22, 2015
So glad this finally came out! I’m a super big fan of the Transitions Photochromic shield I had on my Bell Star and I’m extremely happy that Shoei finally released the Transitions Photochromic shield for the RF-1200. It fits perfect and it changes quickly. I do wish it would get a tad darker but I knew how dark it would get going into this. What I don’t get is why it costs more than the Bell Transitions Photochromic. Any way it is a great shield if you do a lot of all day riding in hot sunny areas like I do. April 17, 2015

Donald F: I was able to use this night and day with no visual issues. This is an awesome visor May 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

Patrick B: No , this shield looks very similar to the RF 1100 shield but this shield will not fit on the RF1100 . The lever to lift and drop the the shield is identical but placed in a different place. Apr 30, 2015

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
