Shoei CWR-1 Pinlock Lens Insert
Pricey yet effective
Shoei has simply put basic laws of physics to deliver a brilliant product which truly delivers what it stands for. However, the biggest regret clearly remains the price. The whole set of pinlock face shield, pinlock ready lens, breath guard & chin curtain will set you back by a good $97!! leaving a frowned face??
Bought this piece to go with my dark smoke pinlock face shield (for the Qwest Overt Helmet) which works amazing for us here in India, especially given the humid conditions. This time while using it in winters is also working great. All in all, its an excellent product (though stinkingly pricey) from Shoei.

Performs exactly as advertised. No more fog while riding, even at nighttime in extremely humid conditions. It does reduce light transmission slightly, so keep that in mind while riding at night. Also, occasionally it will cause a "double image" when looking directly at bright lights due to reflection between the lens and the helmet visor.

Effective but pricey
Bought the pin lock insert at same time as pin lock shield to help with fogging issues on Quest helmet. Shoes should have included the pin lock shield stock with the helmet. The pin lock insert does work though it seems some equalization of temperature is needed first thing out in the morning before fogging is truly eliminated. The effectiveness is good but the cost is a bit high, no fault of Revzila, Shoei is responsible for the cost issue.

Get this now
If you have problems with your lens fogging put this on and it will never fog again. It says it is for daytime use only but I have one on both my clear and tinted lens and I use it at night on the clear lens with no problem. They say it will darken the lens but I do not notice that and if your lens fogs up you will have worse visibility.

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.
