Keith B: Wanted a tinted face shield and why not go pinlock and avoid morning fog up.Jun 25, 2015
Maria S: My Shoei helmet is so tight it does not allow me to wear sunglasses (this is a good thing though), plus I want the anti-fogging technology. It is a shame though that Shoei does not include this feature on it's helmets, you would think that for the price they would!Jun 5, 2015
kyle b: I don't like the moisture built upJun 2, 2015
michael G: wanted a dark tinted screen for an upcoming tripMay 24, 2015
Gregor T: Replacement for my Quest helmetMay 13, 2015
Terry C: I just bought a slightly used shoei rf-1100 and the only shield it had was dark smoke. I love it in the day time, but I needed a clear one for night time riding. Since fogging is more of an issue at night for me, I chose the pinlock anti fog system.May 11, 2015
Martin A: Have ridden almost consistently through the Northeast winter 2014/2015, and I was surprised how well this pinlock system works in preventing fogging.May 8, 2015
Darilyn R: To have more versatility in the summer with a tinted lens.May 3, 2015
Bryan S: Needed tint with anti fogging in my life and this is just the perfect amount.Apr 28, 2015

Jon C: Want the pin lock for fogging, the color for better visual acuity during overcast days.Feb 14, 2015
Matthew T: I have an aversion to fog blocking my vision in the mornings. I have no desire to rub my flesh against tarmac.Feb 14, 2015
Karen D: I ordered the dark smoke for sun protection. Love my Shoei helmet and this will make it even more enjoyable.Feb 9, 2015
Edward G: Because I have a Shoei Qwest helmet and needed some help with foggingJan 20, 2015
Rodrigo H: I used this to cross the Andes mountains in northern Chile / Argentina. It worked very well as a ONE TIME USE. I cleaned and packed it in its plastic sleeve thinking I would be able to reuse. I wasn't able to reuse it... two other friends bought the same item and were only able to use once. If you are going on a LONG TRIP it's a must-have for extreme fog situations but don't expect to get more than two rides out of it!Jan 19, 2015
Joseph W T: Qwest helmet is nortorious for fogging. Since Shoei isn't delivering the transition shield had to settle for plain pinlock.Jan 4, 2015
Keven W: Shoei Qwest helmets are great but notorious for easy fogging. Living and riding in coastal Southern California sees microclimate changes that can result in rapid fogging on the visor. The pin lock system seems to be proven technology that will help provide safer visibility in challenging riding conditions.Oct 4, 2014
Gordon S: Ride year round in Northern Virginia. Hot, humid summer and cold winter months. Tired of having my shield fog up and none of the spray/wipes/coatings worked. This does -- 100% of the time. Down side -- looks like I accidentally hit it with some of my lens cleaner, and noe it has "spots". Clear spots, but they do cause some blurriness.Sep 28, 2014
mark f: to keep helmet from fogging upSep 27, 2014
Jim S: As a Seattle motorcycle commuter, fogging is a pretty serious issue, especially in the winter. This did the trick.Sep 14, 2014
Tom Paschal: I commute on the bike rain or shine. Pinlock works all winter long through the rain 30 miles each way.Aug 26, 2014
Brant W: I chose this one because the photochromic shield is NEVER going to be ready to ship hahaAug 23, 2014
TIM V: Required to be used with the pinlock lens (sold separately).Aug 22, 2014
Byron C: This product works. I have pinlock in all my helmets and will never go back to foggy shields.Aug 22, 2014
justin v: Along with the pinlock lens this has a made the biggest difference in visibility. Have used this for a few months now with my Shoei Qwest helmet and have no fogging issues at all. Excellent product and I wouldn't ride without it.Aug 18, 2014
Vishal P: Though this piece is pretty expensive compared to other pinlock faceshield options from other brands its a real blessing to have this piece especially for foggy conditions. And the smoke black version along with my shoei qwest hi vis helmet gives it a complete bad-ass look. The only con as I said earlier is the price and the need to buy a pinlock anti fog lens separately which further pinches the pocket. However, since I bought the Shoei Qwest on a closeout, I've absolutely no regrets.Aug 17, 2014
Fabian S: Fogging is a big cons when riding in cold mornings or frozen nights.Aug 7, 2014
Gerald M: I don't wear sunglasses with my helmet, so I like to ride with a dark shield...and since this shield is pinlock-ready, I can get a pinlock shield at any time if I have any fogging issues.Jul 15, 2014
Chris S: I have to use sunglasses when I ride to avoid headaches. Hoping this solves the problem. I do almost zero night riding.Jul 5, 2014
Daniel B: My girlfriend got a scratch on her shield a couple weeks after getting a new helmet. She is really picky about not having anything on the shield to look out of so this pinlock should work great. It is an upgrade from the stock shield and with zillaBucks it was a lot less!!!
Thank you RevZilla!!!!Jun 30, 2014
Steven L: "Unfortunately the high price of Shoei lids does not cover pinlock/lens. Hopefully in the future photochromatic pinlock sheilds and lens will be standard issue on at least premium lids like Shoei."Jun 27, 2014
ED R: was tired of having a fogged up face shieldJun 27, 2014
Charles B: Easier to wear my regular glasses, get rid of fogging, and to keep out excess sun glare.Jun 26, 2014
Mike H: Bought this to replace the stock shield that came with my Shoei Qwest helmet. The stock shield fogged up constantly in good weather and was almost unusable in moist / foggy weather.
The CW-1 Pinlock ready shield with the Shoei CW-1 / CNS-1 Pinlock Lens fixed the issue. Make sure the pinlock cams are facing the correct direction based on the shield size. I had them facing the wrong direction initially and there was a minor gap at the bottom between lens and shield.Mar 20, 2014
Lorena G: Required due to excessive fogging.Mar 18, 2014
Jacob T: Cheap alternative to the photochromic lens that is on back order for foreverMar 5, 2014

chris c: need fog protection as my commute frequently is socked in....hope this helpsJan 17, 2014
Justin G: Live in Vancouver, BC - ride in the rain all the timeâ?¦ constant fog issues...Jan 13, 2014
eric b: I don't want to go through another winter/spring with fogged lenses. Opening the face shield to defog windburns my eyes. time to do the pinlock shield.Jan 5, 2014
Steven B: Pinlock is the best anti-fog system out there by far. Won't buy a helmet that does not have pinlock at least as an option.Dec 25, 2013
Maureen W: I've had a pinlock on my other helmet. No fog.........No other way to goDec 19, 2013
Likhi O: Wanted pinlock for so long now... no more fogging up!Nov 18, 2013
Daniel K: Tried FogTech on my Shoei CW-1 visor and it actually made the fogging worse. I've read that pinlock is my best chance for a fog free visor!Nov 14, 2013
Anthony B: Because the non-pinlock was terrible for anti-fogging. Or maybe I'm just a heavy breather?Nov 13, 2013
Gene C: I ride all year and discovered a lot of the riders I ride with swear by these visors. My current one fogs up bad in a 36 degree 5 hour ride. Now I will not have an issue with fogging up!Nov 9, 2013
Kurt W: It was great to have the anti-fog option that would not wear out.Nov 4, 2013

Mathew B: I ride all yr round and needed something to help in the cold or rainAug 30, 2013
A shopper asked:i have a rf-1100 with the original face shield. Its clear. I need a sunscreen shield with uv, so I can ditch the sunglasses because they cause pressure points, but I also have the problem with the fog.Apr 22, 2012
A shopper asked:I currently own the Shoei Quest. The stock face shield fogs up quickly and frequently with all the vents open and the breath guard installed. Does this face shield come with the clear fog free lens or do i need to order the lens separate. I know if i wanted a colored or tinted lens i'd need to order it separately. The reason I ask is because i read somewhere that this shield comes with a clear fog free lens and thats all i need.
CDP13:Nope...it's two separate pieces. The face shield has the pins on it and then you need to buy the fog shield which has notches that slip into the pins. If your shield has the pins already, then you will just need to order the fog shield insert. I had to order both. It's a great system, definitely blocks out the fog and for the weather I ride in (cool & rainy), it has definitely worked. My original face shield use to fog up and I had to ride with it cracked all the time. Now, that's over and I get to keep my face shield closed, the head vents closed with only the face vent open. Hope this helps you decide it's worth the purchase. As for tints, well I think you can buy either in tint, but I'm sure the RevZilla staff can help with that...good luck!Jan 10, 2012
DrDan:This will fix your fog problem right away. My Qwest was driving me nuts until I swapped out the visor for the Pinlock one. Yes, you need to order the insert separately, which is unfortunately an extra cost item.Jan 29, 2012
Chris K:This Pinlock shield is the shield only. To complete the system, you would need to order a lens as well. You can purchase these in clear or in several types of tint. I've linked the product for you below:Dec 14, 2011
Kenneth B:Assuming you have a pinlock-ready face shield, all you need is the pinlock lens. The pinlock lens is clear, so if you want a tint, you need use a tinted face shield. During the day I use mine with the darkest face shield, but I also have a clear shield to use at night.Feb 22, 2015
CHRISTOPHER G:i have the Shoei Qwest with the pin lock lens , the shield that you need is the cw-1 which is the same shield that is used on the now discounted rf-1100 . The shield comes in different colors but the pinlock is only available in clea hope this helpsFeb 9, 2015
Michael B asked:I was wondering if I buy this face shield does come with the pinlock insert doesn't say and other sites state it comes with a insert when you purchase the shield . Just wondering since it seems expensive if you have to buy a face shield and the pinlock insert?Mar 7, 2015
Richard P:They are not holes they are pins in the shield. I guess you could do some thing but it would be difficult, I believe the pins have little slots next to the inside of the shield surface to accept the pin lock. Hope this helps. RichardApr 24, 2014
Peter K asked:I have search the internet for the hi def yellow face-shields and what its use for and i could not find a straight answer. I was wondering if you can explain to me the use for them and time of day its use for? I heard its great for night riding can you please confirm this.Oct 29, 2013
Richard P:I do have a yellow pin lock insert. I do not tend to use it much as I live in an area that has way more sunny days than cloudy ones, The yellow is mostly used for over cast days as it creates higher definition or contrast with less light. I have not tried it at night, but it does work well as stated above.Oct 30, 2013
Daniel T:The yellow is best used on overcast and rainy days. It is not helpful on sunny days and I definitely would not use it at night. I have had the occasion where I was near home on the road while it was getting dark and it definitely impacts your vision with oncoming cars.Oct 29, 2013
Ronak P asked:Did they change the tinting? If I recall correctly, it used to be the shield was clear while the insert was tinted. It seems now the shield is tinted, and I suppose the insert will be clear. Is this correct?Oct 14, 2013
Peter K:I have search the internet for the hi def yellow face-shields and what its use for and i could not find a straight answer. I was wondering if you can explain to me the use for them and time of day it shines? I heard its great for night riding can you please confirm this.Oct 29, 2013
James E:The pinlock-ready face shield comes with the pins already installed in the proper position for the second visor piece. This ensures that the second visor layer is airtight against the insde of the visor. You might be able to install pins in the proper position; but if they are not in the correct position or have some wiggle, there will be an air leak and the shield will probably still fog up.Apr 24, 2014
