Shoei CWR-1 Transitions Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
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.

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

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.

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.

Everyone should have a transitions auto darkening face shield!

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.

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.

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.
