Shoei CW-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
Used this and the insert during my basic rider course on a cold weekend. I was the only person with a full helmet that had no fog issues. Does exactly what it is designed to do. Only wish they had a transition option available for the Qwest.

This product has great features
Seems to be keeping the fog away. Notice slight visual distortions w/ the extra plastic, but not a deal breaker. As been said many times before, Shoei should come with a pin-lock ready visor in the first place. Also, the black plastic for the pin-lock nodules should be clear so as not to distract the peripheral vision.

Love these in yellow
I recommend the yellow to everybody -- the entire world looks so CHEERFUL when it's slightly yellow! Everybody who looks through the shield uses exactly that word, with no prompting. Best antidote to road-rage available. :)
So the shield is great. The only downside is that I have to buy a new one every season. I ride about 16,000 km / 10,000 miles each season, and I'm not careful enough with my helmet, so the shields might get more abuse from me than most, but anything that reduces their scratchability would be appreciated.
I will keep buying them.

I picked up a dark smoke shield for my RF 1200. It's a great quality shield and definitely worth the money!
I do wish the smoking was a little darker or perhaps had a more mirrored finish at times. It's easy to see my face in sunlight and could be darker when riding directly into the sun.
All-in-all, great quality and great fit for a smoke shield!

Let's me leave my sunglasses in my tank bag
Love the dark tint. Works well, even at night. The only time I need my sunglasses are when driving directly into the sun.

Light smoke on Shoei Qwest Prestige
I had purchased this face shield based on reviews that said the stock face shield on the Qwest Prestige had fogging issues. This face shield has had no fogging issues when moving. When stopped, however, the lens can fog, especially when humid. It also clears up very quickly when you begin to move again which is nice. The light smoke color helps reduce glare at night and is not too dark where it hinders my vision. I don't even need my sunglasses anymore during the day as it does an excellent job blocking out the light and glare from cars.

Does what it says.
The shield feels high quality. Slightly thicker and heavier than the original shield it replaced on my RF1100. I purchased the smoke tint and it does a good job of blocking the sun's rays.
I recommend this product to anyone wanting a tinted visor.

Needed piece in order to finish a "project"
It does a job that I have needed it to do. Simple thing: have a clear shield with pinlock insert, so I do not have to deal with fogging. Job done.
