Shoei CWR-1 Pinlock Lens Insert
Pinlock? A must!
There's no riding in temps bellow 70F without a pinlock lens. Visors fog at stops, at low speeds, almost no exception. Happens on my Shoei (RF-1200), happens on my Arai (Signet-Q).
Enter the pinlock lens, and the fog is gone. For good.
I do like, however, the Shoei solution best.
Shoei only offers a (single) clear pinlock lens, so you can combine it with different color/shade shields.
Arai, on the other hand, offers different colored pinlocks that can be paired only to a clear shield. So, no pinlock for a smoke shade visor...:-(
Shoei really got it right here.

If your helmet fogs up all the time this is the only way to go. A little expensive for the set, but well worth it.

Awesome enhancement to RF-1200
Since my roommate who currently owns an RF-1100 and often has to flip up his visor due to fogging, it's very nice to be able to have my visor down most if not all the time and not have to worry about dealing with fog. If you have an RF-1200, this item should be a must.

Don't Listen to the Bad Reviews
These are great. If it rains or if its cold you never have to worry about your shield fogging up. Some people were saying there is a bad glare/reflection at night. Well, if you read the directions they say "Do not use at night" I leave mine in all the time. It's just a reflection from the headlights shining through the face shield then reflecting off the pinlock lens then back onto the face shield. It doesn't bother me at all.

This product works exactly as advertised.
The pin lock shield is wedged against the inside of your face shield and forms an air tight pocket between it and the shield. It does not fog up with your breath and in high humidity. It creates a clear view through the shield.

great pin lock
I got this as a extra one. In the RF1200 Inception/Mirrored Gold lens. It fits great. A bit hard to put in. It combats fogging in HOT weather and I can happily say that problem is gone. I ride in 97% Humidity with temperatures of 80+ works great.

Does its job
I bought this to combat fogging in cold weather and I can happily say that problem is gone, but it has presented a new issue. When trying to lift the visor on my Shoei Qwest the inner lens catches the rubber gasket on the helmet making it very difficult to lift the visor and if I have gloves on it's almost impossible. It is a small problem compared to the problems associated with not using it.

I got tired of swapping the pinlock lens between my tinted and clear visor so I bought a spare. Does exactly what it's supposed to, I just don't know why it's so expensive ($15 more and I could have had a new shield; without lens of course).
