Shoei CWR-1 Pinlock Lens Insert
scratches easy and distorts vision.
pinlock worked great for fog. I noticed at night would blur vision from street lights and break lights. as far as durability I changed it out from clear lens to tinted lens about five times and is now scratched to an unusable condition. Maybe the way to go is to buy one for each lens!!

worst every buck
a very good thing for a cold weather, struggled a lil bit with fitting the lens inside the shield, but after reading the manual there were no problems. Very god vision

If your visor is compatible with the pinlock, just buy it. Never fog up again.
Make sure to install it with clean hands and away from any potential dust or debris that may fall onto the visor. Also, be careful when cleaning as they scratch if using ammonia based cleaners.

Must Have with Shoei Pin-lock
Never had a fogging issue ever with the Shoei Pin-lock Insert. Don't be intimidated; it is very easy to install - just follow the directions provided, and I can assure you the insert will work like a charm.

Does stop the fogging issues, but...
Let me first say that it has completely eliminated the fogging issues I've been having in the colder weather. Installation was easy and thing works how its designed to. Only reason why I knocked off one star was because of it showing a double image when riding at night. Since there is two piece of optics now, some of the light gets bounced around and causes a double image of what ever light source comes through the visor. Its not a major problem in a tuck and you'll eventually get used to it, but just a warning for people.

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.
