Stock Smoke vs Dark Smoke Replacement Sun Visor
I've been using a SY-MAX III helmet since the middle of March. Upon first use of the SY-MAX III, I felt that the stock (smoke) sun visor was inadequate for use during the brightest daylight hours. I could get away with the stock sun visor during early to mid morning and late afternoon/early evening. For the hours in between, I needed to wear sunglasses. I knew that HJC had a dark smoke sun visor replacement, but just dealt with putting on sunglasses for past several months. I'd been meaning meaning to pick up the dark smoke replacement, but never got around to it. Well, fast forward five months later, my dark smoke replacement sun visor came in today and have just finished installing the sun visor and here is my initial impressions. I have two minor quibbles. The first relates to visor construction and durability. The second applies to the effectiveness of the 'darker' sun visor. I'll discuss these caveats below.

I saw a review on another website where the user removed the sun visor for thorough cleaning and broke the the retention clip that secures the sun visor to the operating mechanism. As of the writing of that review, he went through 3 replacement visors. The little tabs/fingers of the retention clip do look fragile and look like they well bend and/or break easily if you are not careful. It would be best to remove the sun visor gingerly as it is easy to break the little tabs/retention clip that secures the visor to the operating mechanism. I would imagine this would be more of an issue in colder climates where the plastic retention clips may harden. As a precaution, one could try lightly warming the retention point with a hair dryer to soften the plastic a bit if you are removing the installed sun visor. I did not encounter any difficulty removing the stock smoke sun visor. I gently pulled on the sun visor to disengage the retention clip and from there lifted the visor away from sun visor hinges. Removal and installation was quite easy and only took a couple of minutes to do, seconds really. But if you rush it and are not careful, I can see those little mounting tabs breaking off if you man handle the sun visor too much.

The other quibble I want to address is that the dark smoke sun visor isn't that much darker than the stock smoke sun visor. In photography terms, the dark smoke sun visor is about 1 to 1.5 stops darker than the stock smoke sun visor (see attached pictures). As I mentioned earlier, the stock (smoke) sun visor tint isn't sufficient for the brightest hours of daylight approximately between the hours of 10:30am - 5:00pm here in Hawaii. While the stock sun visor is better than nothing, I prefer wearing sunglasses otherwise I'll be squinting during my ride if I were to rely solely on the stock smoke sun visor. For reference, my sunglasses are about 1.5 to 2 stops darker than the smoke sun screen. Even though the dark smoke sun visor is only slightly darker, I would say that the dark smoke is an improvement over the stock sun visor.

I have not gone riding with the dark smoke replacement sun visor yet, but I did perform a quick test - I put on my helmet and lowered the sun visor and took a look outside from my front door at 1:30pm. I raised the sun visor and quickly put on my sunglasses and what I found was that the degree of darkening was pretty close. However, the optical quality of the sunglasses were better and is a half shade/stop darker. My sunglasses get the extra edge as well because they are polarized. Mind you I paid $20 for my sunglasses from outdoor outfitters retail store, so I consider them cheap sunglasses. Now, how much better is the dark smoke replacement sun visor than the stock smoke sun screen? It is definitely a lot better. We'll see if I still need to wear sunglasses. I know that I won't be squinting with the dark smoke sun visor if I were to be riding mid day like I did with smoke sun visor. I'll post a followup after I've ridden with the new visor.

Final note, in the product description it says that, "Shields may look slightly different from images." I would say that the dark smoke replacement sun visor is quite different from what is pictured and is inaccurately represented. Prospective buyers will be disappointed if they are hoping for a sun visor as dark as what is pictured above. I was aware of this occurrence prior to buying my dark smoke sun visor after reading reviews. I hope that the images I provided are helpful to those wanting to know how much darker the dark smoke sun visor is in comparison to the smoke.

PROS:
• Dark Smoke is darker than smoke (but not much more darker as depicted in the official product photos)
• Easy and quick to install
• Cheaper than buying a full face shield
• Eliminates need to change out shields (inherent feature of helmet), possibly eliminates need for sunglasses

CONS:
• Optical quality could be better, a polarized coating would be awesome
• Fragile connecting mechanism

quick replacement on my HJC IS-Max
I took off my old shield to clean it and snapped the connector. This replacement fit perfectly and took all of 10 seconds to insert. VERY easy and worked perfectly. Also seems to provide a bit more light blocking than the original.

This product does the job.
With this sun visor, I can ride almost directly into the sun without being blinded.

Caution: Be very careful when removing the shield from the helmet for cleaning. The two prongs can break if you're not careful - I broke mine, that's why I bought this one.

Excellent Product
I was lucky enough to find these replacement lenses. My helmet holds the Name of a major motorcycle manufacturer and the replacement shield, the very same one, would have cost me three times the amount for the very same shield; made by the very same manufacturer.

Better than original.
Still not dark enough. Hits my nose in second down position. Much better than original that came with helmet. Helmet does not sit perfectly square on my crooked head and does lead to second position being useless. I will modify to work!

Fragile!!
The sun shield once installed is great but very fragile to remove. The center mounting clip broke the first time I tried to remove it following the HJC directions. Email HJC twice about the problem and never got a response, not even a "so what".
Very disappointed in the manufacturer of an otherwise great product line.

The sun shield that comes in the HJC IS Max 2 Elemental helmet is not really dark enough in the bright sunlight. This new darker shield should do the trick.

will this replace the internal sun visor in the second generation HJC IS 33 helmet?
Jonathan T on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: so I did replace my sun visor on my HJC IS 33 and as I have only replaced one sunscreen and this is the only one I have bought I assume this is the correct one, it did great, was darker so had better sun protection and if you google it you can find a video to show you how to replace it not hard, hope this helps.

larry
Has any one used the hi-def Amber color Sunshield on bright sunny days in snow? Was it dark enough while providing good contrast? I have the HJC 16-IS. Thanks!!!!
A shopper on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have found the sun shields from HJC to be minimal when compared to sunglasses.

I use the sun shield constantly except during the brightest time of the day, at those times, I revert to sunglasses.

As far as contrast in snow I cannot offer any personal opinion, since snow in my area is usually accompanied by considerable ice as well.

I do wish HJC offered a darker opition
Id like to have a clear visor for night riding and a tinted shield for my face. However i dont see a clear option for the HJC IS 33-2. Question, has anyone rode at night with the amber visor?
A C on Apr 20, 2016
