Arai SAI Face Shield
This face shield is great for blocking the sun's glare. I can see clearly even on cloudy days and I like not having to switch visors. My last Arai face shield lasted two years and was pitted from rocks hitting it during track days.

Arai RXQ Dark Smoke Shield
In the past, I made the mistake of buying a cheaper knockoff visor for my Arai helmet. Poor fit, clarity and after a short time it scratched my helmet due to rubbing upon opening and closing. I'll only buy genuine Arai parts from now on. Thanks Revzilla!

Bought 2 dark smoke visors for my SignetQ helmets. Arai visors always fit perfectly and do the job as expected.

This is a good shield but it takes a little to get proficient at changing it out. I wish aria made an easier system but you can't beat the helmet quality.

What are you waiting for?
I ordered dark smoke visor because of constant sunny days here in SoCal. I wear glasses and this helmet fits comfortably with them on. Dark smoke gives perfect amount of polarization for day time rides. Definitely not too dark. Easy on/off replacement system with helpful video from revzilla. What are you waiting for?

Purple Mirror Arai SAI Faceshield
I went back and forth trying to decide between the dark smoke or purple mirror faceshield. My sole purpose of moving away from the clear faceshield is daytime protection and I was also having issues with headlights at night looking like starbursts. The price difference between the dark smoke and purple mirror was pretty significant which I didn't think was justified, but besides the purpose of the faceshield, I liked the look of the purple mirror. I ultimately decided on the purple mirror and paid the extra.
I am very happy with my decision. I am worried about the faceshield scratching easily, but I knew that before purchasing the product. So now I tend to baby my helmet as opposed to before when I wasn't so worried about it.
It definitely helps with the sun just fine during the day time. I have used it when the sun was starting to go down (dusk) and I didn't have a hard time seeing as it got darker. The faceshield is dark enough to help with the blinding sun, but not too dark to where it's blinding as the sun started to set.
All in all, I would definitely recommend the purple faceshield.

It's an Arai accessory. It's expensive, but high quality.
I purchased the "Dark Smoke" visor for my RX-Q helmet in Hi Viz Yellow. That helmet has several black accents so this complements it. More importantly, it does what it's supposed to on bright and sunny days to help me see better.
I'm going to pick up a "Light Smoke" for cloudy days since those are the conditions where Hi Viz colors are brightest and most effective. Dark smoke visors on very cloudy days are too dark for me, however I know riders who wear dark smoke even at night; I never risk that.
