Shoei CWR-1 Pinlock Lens Insert
Shoei Pinlock Lens insert CWR-1
Although I am sick of buying extra shields and lenses due to the MAJOR DELAY in the SHOEI transitions face shield lens, this is still really a great working product.
I would recommend this to a friend, especially a friend with an Arai Helmet.

pro: it works well.
con: expensive, scratches easily and catches on helmet seal making opening visor a pain.
...still worth not having lens fog up!

Works but not durable
I am using this product on a Quest visor. When new (a year ago), it fit well but not it is loose fitting and the silicone bead is not so tacky. This means that there is not a good seal (if any) between the visor and the pin lock visor. The end result is that fog is not prevented. If we are meant to buy a new one each year, then the price needs to come down some.

A product worth to have it however SHOEI does not
I like very much my helmet, with shoei you can´t go wrong, overall a good product, this is a premium helmet and this kind of stuff should come along with all necessary accesories to enjoy full experience. Paying for your helmet 500+ usd and additional 80 dollars (lens + visor with pins) for not fogging is all about shoei being a money maker leech.

Watch the finger prints.
Th installation is a bit tricky. I had to remove it and get the finger prints off then put on gloves to keep it clean. No problems after that. Love it

No more Fogging - well sort of
I love having the pinlock insert in my Shoei RF-1200. It works just as it should - creating a locked air space that prevents fogging of the shield. I found it works especially well on cooler morning or when coming outside from the A/C. The only thing I wish is that there was a pinlock shield for my glasses - they still fog a bit. Great product - definitely worth the money!

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.
