Scorpion EXO-1000 / 1100 / 500 Internal Sun Shield
wish it was darker
this is subtly darker than stock, but noticibly so. when paired with the light smoke face shield provides good sun protection. i wish there was a darker option.

Darker than what comes in the EXO-1000
I was in search of something a little darker than the original sun shield that came in my EXO-1000, but I did not necessarily want to purchase an entire tinted face shield. Enter a darker internal shield.
The installation was fairly straight forward although the side opposite of the operating lever did get a little bit sloppy causing the shield to not retract fully on that side. After a bit of messing with it, removing it and installing it I finally got things back to the way they should be.
The shield, in my opinion, could be even darker but it is a definite improvement over the previous shield. Revzilla as usual carries the best inventory and prices!

Darker than the original, but not as dark as I thought.
Once again Revzilla sent this order very quickly. I ordered these dark smoke shades because I thought they would be darker than the original(s) that came with the scorpion exo helmet, but they are not as dark as I thought. I have ordered the dark smoke face shield as suggested by someone in another post. Hopefully that will work a little better. The only issue I had was replacing the shades for the first time. It is said that removing the shades are easy. This is not true if it is your first time. It is a bit tricky, however, once you have figured it out it is fairly easy. I suggest that you watch a youtube video on how to remove the shades if you have never done it before so that you do not break the clips that hold the shades in place. The instructions that come with the helmet showing you how to remove the shades are a little bit wrong as compared with what you see on the youtube video. Other than that I would recommend these shades to anyone who lives in a very sunny place or on an island like I do here on Okinawa and have to ride in the bright sun. (Of course when it is not raining) Every little bit helps I say.

Very good purchase
This is definitely a must and a very nice upgrade to the almost clear visor that comes with the helmet. Great price too

paired a light smoke outer visor, with a dark smoke inner visor for the perfect combo. still light enough to see at night, with the dark visor available when riding into the sun.

same or close to the stock internal sun visor
I thought the dark smoke would be darker than the stock sun visor that comes with the EXO-1100 helmet. It's exactly the same shade. If you want a good protection from bright morning or late afternoon sun glare, replace the main visor with dark smoke and activate your internal sun visor. I lived in Southern Cal and that combination works for me. I wish Scorpion would make really dark internal visor. If I ride night, I'll leave the house with the clear shade for main visor.
