Shoei CW-1 Pinlock Face Shield
Zero fogging, period
I bought the pinlock shield and lens for my RF-1100, and I now have zero fogging, even in the coldest weather. Definitely recommend it.

Great shield, fits identical to OE.
I ordered the dark smoke, and it fits identical to the clear shield that shipped with my Shoei Qwest. It does a great job of blocking light, yet isn't so dark to see out of. Dark Smoke makes any helmet look tons better.
The shield does fog up somewhat easy (that's more a function of helmet geometry) but it also clears up incredibly fast. I'll be getting a pinlock lens in the near future.
I've only had my Qwest for a week, but something I was reminded of as I replaced the shield is how thick Shoei's shields are. I came from an HJC CS-RD (budget helmet) and looking back now that shield was incredibly thin compared to this.

Great Commuter Faceshield
Great face shield, for what I paid for my Quest it should have been included. About every two weeks I have to gently press it to the face shield else it fogs up. Rode in Northern VA weather as cold at 16F.

Product is good overall
This shield is awesome for an all around shield. It is not to dark or to light. The pin lock is awesome with it. The only issue with it is that the left quick release knob comes out a little tougher than the right one. But not to bad. But everythig else is mint.

The shield works well and does what it was meant to do; hold the pinlock lens. I bought this shield in Yellow and it gives great visibility. Everything seems to pop out more to me. Especially at night, the whole road is very yellow and the street lights are very bright. I wish these pinlock shields came in Mirror tints though. That would make my day.

Pinlock is GREAT!
After seeing some of the great reviews and hesitating because of the higher cost, I decided to finally try it. It works as describe and I'm truly amazed at how well it works. Absolutely zero fog, even at 35 degree weather standing still at a red light. I highly recommend it.

Riding in NYC cold weather is no worries with fogging up w this. But not moving and heavy breathing can start to show alittle bit. Though the only problem can be the glare reflections on visuals sometimes. But pretty awesome most of the time. I am sold on using as much as possible.

Great shield and lens.
I purchased the Pinlock shield and Pinlock lens at the same time for my Shoei Qwest. Both products were exactly as described, and work as intended; that is, they reduce fogging during cold/wet weather. I would say that the Pinlock lens eliminates 95% of fogging, but not all. Which is okay. The new shield and lens work. Period.
While riding at night, I noticed a slight amount of blur/reflection, but not enough to cause distractions or impair your vision.
Overall, a great product! For cold weather riders, I would definitely recommend this product.
