Arai SAI Face Shield 4.8 5 200 200
It does its what is expected It is a face shield in blue iridium. Nothing special aside from shade for the eyes. October 21, 2015
Nice face shield face shield fits perfectly onto the Arai Corsair helmet. Finish is very nice. October 5, 2015
Purple is very purple It's thicker than the clear visor and even though the picture my not due it justice it's very purple. September 30, 2015
Cool Shield This shield is really cool, figuratively & literally. The silver mirror keeps the inside of your helmet much cooler on hot days, and has a cool look to it, as well. People can't see your face when looking at you, but your vision from inside the helmet is great, as long as it is daylight. You don't want to ride at night with this shield. September 21, 2015
dark shield great shield just wish it was easier to change, as dark smoke is not a good choice to be wearing if caught out at night September 21, 2015
I love it. It fit perfectly, and the tint works really well. I have been notified that my review was too short, so I'll just fill in the rest of this with my grandma's secret recipe to her jell-o. The trick is using a half cup of warm water. You're welcome. August 10, 2015
Very good It is an excellent product and i used many times during my trips. August 4, 2015
Works great It's a great shield blocks the sun and keeps my face cooler August 3, 2015

Howard B: bought extra face shields with my ARAI helmets. I ride light smoke during day and clear at night. Easy on and off just like the revzilla video Oct 13, 2014
S P: The Arai dark smoke is the best I've seen. The difference is in the color of the tint. If it's too green or blue, contrast is low. Arai is toward the brown which improves contrast and warms the colors a bit. I search for this tint in everything I put over my eyes. Yellow tint is optimum for contrast, but it messes up my colors too much. I like to enjoy the colors of the landscapes, and be able to pick the deer out. Oct 5, 2014
Christian G: ARAI IS THE BEST OF THE BEST Oct 5, 2014

Ronald R: Recently purchased an Arai Defiant Helmet and it's very sunny here in Orlando, Fl. Read your reviews and watched your video on installing the face shield and liked your approach to sales education. Was torn between the mirrored or the dark smoke, but the reviews helped me decide. Hard to carry my clear on my Ducati Monster 1100 EVO, but can always ride with the visor up and my polycarbonate glasses.
May 22, 2014

Also I like that other drivers can see my face inside my helmet. I chose to order from RevZilla because of the great video you provided on how to change out the shield. Excellent! Mar 24, 2014

Colin S: My helmet came with the clear shield which forced me to wear glasses under my visor during the day. In warm weather this causes some discomfort from sweating. The smoke visor works perfectly without the need to wear glasses and give me better field of view. I carry both now on the bike and switch to the clear only when it gets dark. Oct 19, 2013

L U: Needed a light smoke shield to go with my new RXQ. Arai's shields hold up the best Sep 8, 2013
Steven L: Avoid the new type that have inserts to prevent fog or something. The reflections day or night are epic-ly absurd. If you do get the inserts and think you want a dark for day use you will regret it. A full dark shield is a million times better. Basic model is the way to go. Sep 4, 2013

A S asked: How dark are the purple and/or blue mirror shields, and how sensitive are they to scratches--will regular riding conditions affect the quality of the shields? Jul 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark F: They are more sensitive to scratches then regular shield.If you take them off and wash them as suggest Vs using a cleaning cloth they should last you 3-4 seasons no problem.I had 5 or 6 of these. be careful of knock-offs out there those will peal!
I am very picky though so I get one every 3 seasons if I get more then few scratches.
As far as being dark they are about the same BUT due to reflective coating you might get a slight reflection inside the helmet .I logged over 50k miles on mirror shields no real problems and they look cool.But if its a track day and I had to choose between the reg. or mirror I would go go with regular dark...just me

SHAFAZ M: Hi there,
I bought the dark smoke shield.
It's amazing in the summer for those bright sunny days and I also ride with them at nights, which might be a bit too dark but you just have to be more aware of your surroundings.
In term of sensitivity to scratches I never had any issues, just clean it with water or windex and paper towel or a microfiber rag.
I ride all the time with this shield and no issues so far.
I'm actually thinking of getting the mirror shield also.
Hope this helps your decision.

George T: Mirror (Iridium) shields are VERY delicate. If a bug hits one hard enough it can create a tiny ding in the finish that will look like a Christmas light. Forget sand grains, etc.

Harder to clean and need a lot for TLC. If you're a serious rider, stay away. If you want to look cool sitting in a parking lot, YMMV ;)

A S: Thanks, that was exactly what I wanted to know. I'm not an off-road rider, mostly street, so I believe I should do just fine in a mirrored shield, and will take your advice on the cleaning and care.

Happy riding!

A shopper asked: I wear prescription glasses AND sunglasses. The clear default shield is insufficient for riding in direct sunlight wearing glasses (e.g. early morning before sun gets over trees and left home sans sunglasses).

Better to buy a lighter shield to wear with glasses OR sunglasses...


Buy the darkest shield I can handle to ride with just glasses?

Christopher L: I can tell you that the mirror shield still allows a bit of heavy light in. For instance, if I have my helmet on (equipped w mirror shield) I can look in the mirror and see my face relatively clearly (in the right light anyway). I find myself squinting when riding into direct sunlight as well. All in all it's a good shield but I do wish It had further protest in against direct sunlight from its glare/brightness.

In comparison, I have a Shark dark smoke shield for my rsr2 and no matter how hard you look you will NEVER see my face through that. I'd be able to ride straight at the sun with ZERO glare/brightness issues.

I do not recommend riding in low light conditions w the Arai mirror shield. It's dark enough to make me feel pretty insecure when the sun isn't out (pre dawn/post dusk) but fine on cloudy days.

I do not wear glasses of any kind ever while riding. I'd be curious if the dark smoke tint from arai is any "darker" than the mirror tint. At the end of the day, you may not even find the PERFECT shield but I think I have the perfect helmet from arai (defiant black w/orange stripe :D ) and the mirror shield compliments it very well! Good luck!

A s: I have the same issue. I wear prescription sunglasses for driving, but hate wearing them for riding with my RX-Q.

I have the Clear Pin-Lock SAI shield for night riding, and a Mirror shield for Daylight riding and it works well. I can still wear my prescription glasses (clear lenses) with the Mirror shield if I need to but usually get away with just the Mirror shield.

The Shield on my RX-Q is pretty easy to change (after a few practice swaps I finally got the hang of it), so I bought the padded ZLA Shield cover and carry both shields with me.

Peter J: The lighter shield will be more versatile throughout the riding day and will not require a change to the clear shield at dusk. If you do have continuous issues with sun on the commute I suppose the dark shield makes sense and you can switch to the clear shield for the evening ride. I always keep the clear shield with me on rides. Hope this helps. Mar 22, 2014

Justin L asked: Hey guys:

1. What will give me that dark, can't see my face mirrored look?
2. How is the fogging on these visors?
Nov 6, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Christopher L: 1) I have the mirror visor and it's nearly impossible to see into it. At the right angle w the right lighting, however, you can see faintly through it. It doesn't appear that the dark smoke tint is blacked out like the schuberth SR1 darkest. I had a shark RSR2 dark smoke that also was completely blacked out. In person and in pics the SAI just doesn't appear that dark. The shark visor is thicker so that could add to the blackout effect as well.

2) I've got the arai defiant and fog isn't an issue when I have the breath deflector incorporated as well as the front chin/mouth vent slightly open one click (indirect air flow). Opening the brow vents causes an obnoxious whistle and I haven't noticed any aid with fog perfection so don't use those but a friend w a vector model says they help greatly.

Cheers and good luck!

Holden L: If you get dark smoke (not mirrored), people can see the outline of your face, but they can't see your expression.

Fogging is a problem with these face shields if you ride in stop-and-go traffic. Even with the RX-Q's chin vent all the way down and the shield slightly open in defog mode, the shield fogs up, especially in cool, damp weather. So I have to open the shield a bit to clear the fog. It doesn't fog on the highway, but I commute on 35mph and 45mph roads with a few stoplights, and I get fogging when I stop at lights and sometimes when drivers in front of me are forcing me to go 30mph or under. I broke down and got a Pinlock visor.

Kent B: The Dark smoke visor is not mirrored but does not reveal your face to onlookers.
I have one and like it for summers.
Fogging is like any other face shield...depends on ambient air temperature and humidity your are riding in. This visor does not offer any particular advantage or anti-fogging capability over any other visor I have worn.

A shopper asked: I am looking for glare reduction, especially around sunset and at night. I've tried yellow glasses, which do work, but don't stay on my nose.

Darian C: In case you don't hear from someone with the gold mirror... I have the silver mirror. It does a passable job when riding towards the sun low in the sky. I'd prefer darker (and polarized) for that situation though. I can't ride at night with it. It might be okay on really well lit streets, but I wouldn't recommend it. Overall I think it is a decent compromise. The tinting is enough most of the time and I can ride further into dusk before I have to swap it out with my clear one. Nov 13, 2015

Kevin S: It will help for sure. You also might want to get a sticker approximately ½ to ¾ inches high to go across the whole face should at the top. Kinda like s glare strip on a car windshield.

David W asked: Interested in getting a new shield for most conditions. Have ridden with a clear shied and sunglasses most of the time but that can be a pain. Anyone try the blue shield? What is the best condition for that color? May 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Allen C: I have the Blue Mirror Shield and its almost the same as the Dark Smoke Tint. I wouldn't use it at night. Best conditions would be any time there is sunlight. Even when it is beginning to get dark it's still good to use. But once it is actually dark you'll have a little trouble seeing. Jun 11, 2014

TM476: I also wanted a complete smoked version, and ended up buying a separate non-pinlock smoked shield for my Signet-Q (available on RevZilla.com). I've never had a problem with fogging, so I'm not sold on the necessity for pinlock. Apr 15, 2013

RevZilla: The mirrored Arai shields are slightly darker in tint, but are also more prone to scratch damage more easily due to the mirroring on the outside of the shield. We hope this helps with your decision. Apr 20, 2012

DenverRick: I can't speak for gold, as I've been waiting on Revzilla to stock them to buy one. But my wife has been using the silver on her Vector for a couple months now and is amazed with it. Perfect tint, day or night riding, she absolutely loves it. Apr 20, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael J: The Dark smoke is the darkest of them all. I would equate it to wearing black sunglasses. It seems they transition with the intensity of the sunlight. When it is cloudy outside they do not impair your vision, however I would not recommend them at night. May 20, 2013

A shopper asked: Good day! I recently purchased a 2003 Triumph Sprint ST, which is silver in color. I would like to purchase an Arai Signet-Q and would like to color-match it to the bike. I see that there are 3 different color helmets, all very close to silver in color. I was wondering is anyone could tell me what solid color Signet-Q helmet would best match the factory silver on this triumph? Thanks very much for your assistance. May 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Saphire Silver has a subtle blue tint to it, so most likely would not be a perfect match to your Triumph. Next comes the Diamond Grey, which looks dark and mysterious, but might be a shade too dark for your bike. Last is the Aluminum Silver, which is right in between the two, and should be juuuuust right. Goldilocks approved. May 28, 2013
