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

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.<br><br>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!<br><br>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).<br><br>(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).

Does not get dark enough
For the money you pay for this...I'm sorry....i'm pretty disappointed in the performance of this transition shield. I would only buy this shield if you absolutely need it. if you are regularly out from day time into the night.<br>The shield requires strong sunlight to get dark, so mornings when sun is up, but the temp is down, the shield is almost clear. Overcast days...it's still basically see through (clear). In strong high noon type of light, the shield gets darker, but still quite a few shades lighter than the regular smoked shield. I always feel like ppl can see through this shield no matter how tinted it gets. I want a dark a shield!<br>Now, in no light, it's clear as clear. it's great there. But for rides where I know i'll be home before dark, I see myself not using this shield anymore, and going back to the regular tinted. This $150 shield is going to stay on the shelf for occasions when I know i'll be out late, which is a shame because this is supposed to be a do it all shield.

Doesn't get dark enough
It's a Shoei product, and fits perfectly. Just doesn't get dark enough, and it turns purple-ish instead of smoke. I live in Hawaii and need to wear sunglasses under it...

A good idea and should add convenience to my rides, but wait!
I received the visor!! It was on back order for a long time. It's good to be in possession of it finally. When I opened the shipping box, the visor was packed in what appeared to be a UV protective sealed sleeve. I immediately thought that this might be to prolong its life. But why would this be necessary? Well, in reading the very small product description on the UV barrier sleeve, this product has a limited life. It doesn't state how long, but eventually the shield will not go fully clear even when riding at night. It's performance is also effected by various weather conditions. Hmm, this is a bit of a buzz kill. $153 for a limited life product. I think this is something that should be included in a web site's product description. That said, I will ride with this shield and see how it performs short term and see how it holds up over the long term. I bought it, it's mine, I'll use it. I hope I feel I got my money's worth when it finally degrades to an unusable condition. That's a lot of money for a shield. Hope it lasts! I'll update after I've had a chance to use it for a while. Good roads, everyone!

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.

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.

Not dark enough
Before I owned a Shoei helmet and their transition shield I had a Bell helmet with their transition shield. Both perform very differently, and after weighing the pros and cons it boils down to a "matter of preference" (and I use quotation marks because it's really a matter of which feature you're willing to sacrifice).<br><br>So first of all, and most importantly, The Shoei shield doesn't get as dark as Bell's. On the few occasions the sun was in the perfect position to blind me, I found myself squinting and trying to avoid the sunlight. I never had to do this with my Bell face shield.<br><br>However, since it rarely is a problem I've been willing to overlook this flaw thanks so the pin-lock feature. IF ONLY BELL HAD A PIN-LOCK VERSION! I start riding last winter (almost one year exactly) and my face shield fogging up was a major issue for me; more so than the sun being too bright.<br><br>So it's worked for me and I don't necessarily have buyer's remourse, but sometimes I do kind of wish my shield got a little darker...

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.

Finally able to ride without sunglasses
I've always rode with sunglasses and a clear shield so I'd be covered both day and night. I've done a few night rides with a dark tinted shield and it's dangerous to say the least.<br><br>This Transitions shield fits just like the original and the tinting action works perfectly. It reacts quickly to the sun (UV) and thus far I have not had the need to wear sunglasses as it gets dark enough for my liking. It's amazing how much my field of vision has increased once I stopped wearing sunglasses... and no more pain points where the helmet pads pressed the temples into my head.<br><br>I would not hesitate at all to recommend this product.

Instantly from clear to dark.
I'm staying in a humid hot zone part of the world the wonderful thing about this transition visor is - it changes from light to dark instantly. I ever used protecTINT pinlock, it does change only to a light smoke colour possibly due to the uv protction on the clear visor. What i know that it takes longer to return from dark to clear

I've heard good reports on this Transitions Shield and if I can use one shield, rather than switching between a clear shield and a tinted shield, then it will be worth the price.
Gary S on Jan 24, 2016
I have a transitions shield on my old Bell Vortex so this is a no-brainer.
Zoe F on Jan 13, 2016
I don't want to worry about always having the other face shield when I am out. This will hopefully save room in my backpack and be a bit more convenient.

Having a visor that transitions from clear to dark is good for me cause I leave for work in the dark and come home in the light. Keeps mefrom having to take up space carrying an extra visor with me
Robert M on Nov 25, 2015
In the summer I rarely ride at night, but in the winter it can't be helped and my usual dark smoke shield is no good at night. And because I'm lazy. I cant be bothered to be switching out shields daily. Got enough gear to worry about.

I commute and already bring enough stuff with me to work that a second visor was not in the cards. With shorter days coming in the next couple of months, it will be nice to have one shield to handle the sun in the morning and the dark on the way home.

maciek k on Aug 3, 2015
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.
Advgrrl on Jul 24, 2015
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.

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.
eric t on Apr 3, 2015
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.

Does this work for the Shoei X-12 ?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this will not fit the Shoei X-12.
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...
Allan H on May 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
A S on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Will this fir a Shoei RF1100?
Andrew B on Apr 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
Sharif m on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does anyone have an update on the availability of this product? Thanks.
Jairo M on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Put your email on revzilla drop notification and when available and order as soon as you receive the notification.
Is this lens affected by temperature at all? The description mentions ambient heat, stating "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." I'm worried that I might be riding on a clear, sunny winter day but the lense will stay clear (or close to clear), or that summer heat might slow the transition reaction time down.
Tamasaurus on Dec 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm fully qualified to answer this as I've logged over 3000 miles from the peaks of the blue ridge parkway to the florida keys, morning and night, freezing and sweltering. The short answer is the effect is modest and not a significant factor. Rarely have I thought 'I wish it was darker' and never have I thought 'I wish it was lighter'. The face shield is expensive - no argument, but worth every penny. The only time I think about it is entering a tunnel with poor lighting.
will this fit the qwest as well?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In first place, sorry my english. Next, i put this shield in a RF 1200, in this case i dont know if fit in Qwest models, i think not, because is shared between RF1100 and Qwest.
Does this shield get as dark as a Shoei dark tint visor? There are two different answers so I'm a bit confused.
A C on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't have a Shoei dark tinted visor so I can't provide a direct comparison. That said, I have an Icon dark tinted visor that is quite a bit darker than what the Transitions visor will go to. The picture shown on RevZilla is a pretty good example of how dark it will go. I normally wear a pair of safety glasses, either clear or tinted based up time of day, under my visors anyway though so this doesn't bother me at all. Overall, I highly recommend the Transistions visor for the convenience if nothing else.
Does this take the pin lock evo?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the CWR-1 EVO insert fits the Transitions Face Shield for the RF-1200.
