Arai SAI Face Shield
Purchased the mirrored visit for my Arai helmet, have been using it for a little over a month and absolutely love it! Perfect for sunny days but not too dark on cloudy days.

ARAI Blue Mirror face shield
I was to the point of not being able to see in the blasting sun, this face shield solved that problem. Besides looking very cool and matching the colors on my amazing Bomb Signet Q helmet, looking through this shield is like wearing a dark pair of sunglasses. You even feel cooler in the sun.
In spite of Anthony's clear video about how to install I found it to be a struggle. Granted I was concerned about scratching my helmet and was being extra careful but it did take 5-6 tries to get it installed. And finally, for my eyes the visor is too dark for night riding.

No need to wear sunglasses
Enough sun blocking so I don't need to wear sunglasses. Unlike some have reported, I found my vision at night was negatively impacted and will never get stuck out at night with this face shield on.

ordered the dark smoke shield
I would say that the dark smoke isn't as dark as some of the pictures depicted but it does the job during very sunny days and I can even use it at night (although I know it's not really recommended). Only trouble I had was actually putting it on. When I swap to my clear one I have, I can swing that shield on no problem. When I have to go back to putting the smoke one on, it is a pain and initially I thought it was a bad fit. Might be that the edges haven't been worn in (even though I put lubricant on it) but it's always difficult putting the smoke back on. Not sure if anyone else has this problem but I run into multiple times when switching shields. If I end up buying another helmet I'll just make one for day and one for night use. Other than that, pretty happy with it.

A quality known to Arai, fit was perfect. Not any more noisy than stock, maybe quieter, a touch dark for nighttime, but doable, depends on the rider IMO. I don't wear glasses and have 20/15 and do just fine. Worst case, slow down, flip it up and nurse it home chocking it for experience. I think it's fine. Stay away from ammonia cleansers and run the mill shop rags for micro fiber and water, y'all should be fine.

Much better than Pinlock
My helmet came with the pin lock clear insert. I bought a dark tinted insert to use instead of sunglasses. However, you still must remove the face shield to change out inserts and it is very difficult to bend the face shield remove one insert and insert another. Also you have to go through the same procedure to clean. The SAI is much simpler. Just remove to exchange with a tinted one or to clean. As far as to keep from fogging, just crack it open a little.
I prefer this much more than the pin lock system.

Exact fit, looks awesome
Quality shield from Arai. Silver mirrored is my favorite option. I have smacked a few bugs and with a microfiber and some glass cleaner everything comes right off and there are no visible scratches. Best accessory for the helmet.
