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 Photochromic Pinlock-Ready Face Shield 1 5 1 1
Slow to change tint, doesn't seal well with visor I tried this pin lock insert in the UK over the winter, thought it would solve the dual issues of low sunlight and fogging up. The reactor lite tinting doesn't work quickly, I was blinded by the morning sun on my commute to work and because the insert is slightly more stiff than the non reactor lite versions, it didn't seal well with my CW-1 visor and so fogged up on those cold wet UK mornings. Overall not impressed for the price, stick to a tinted insert. May 19, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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

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

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

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

Ryan H: No, it only works for the 1200. The RF1100 uses the CW-1 instead May 7, 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
