Arai XD-3 / XD-4 Pinlock Ready Face Shield
Solves fogging problems
Have been using pinlocks for a few years now.
Without pinlock I have serious fogging issues. These inserts solve that problem for me. Simple installation with no adverse effect on vision and clarity

The pinlock does not fit correctly on the Face Shield
The face shield is so nice and clear, compared to my old one. I could see great out of it before I put on the pinlock.
The pinlock would not fit right on the shield, the slots are not deep enough, or the pins need to be a bit further apart.
I had to deepen the slots to fit the pinlock. I then cleaned both the shield and pinlock and put the pinlock on. But now I have marks either on the shield, pinlock, or both which is rather upsetting. I just hope now that the rain does not leak in between the pinlock and shield.

Great product. Wish I had bought it sooner!
I bought the clear insert and shield. It is a product that may not come into play on every ride, but when you need it it is there. No more foggy shield!

What price do you put on safety?
I have been using anti fog sprays for years.
They are a temporary solution.
They must be reapplied after a short time.
The pinlock shield and insert is THE solution.
No fog. Even with the complex curve of the XD3.
Do not know why I waited so long to be consistently safe.

Like you had 2 drinks
The system is quite there yet. When you put the clear anti-fog lens in, it creates a funky view that not quite rite.

Prevents condensation well; slight drop off in visual clarity
On the sharply pointed Arai XD-3/4 visors, there's a small amount of distortion off-center when using the pin-lock insert. But as for what I bought it to do, stop fogging / condensation, it works very well. I have a light smoke shield and should probably have gone for the clear - - most of the time I need help with fogging in low-light situations.

Arai XD-3 Pinlock Face Shield
Over the years I have tried all sorts of sprays and other old wives tales to stop my visor from fogging up, some sort of work but then you forget to do it all the time and you still end up in the poo.
These pin lock visor inserts are truly the only way to go for 100% effectiveness! Don't think about just get one and enjoy.

OK. I guess
The Pinlock shield with the insert does the trick. It does stop fogging as stated. But to spend $75+ USD to get an anti-fogging system is a bit expensive. I just paid closed to $500 for the helmet and needed to cough up another $75 more so I can use it in cold weather. Not thrilled... but I can see clearly now. Remember folks, you need to buy the shield in addition to the shield insert.
