    Shoei CW-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield 4.7 5 110 110
    Great Product Great product, especailly when you include the pin lock insert....ZERO FOG! Very handy for those cold mornings splitting on the bridge. October 26, 2015
    No Fog 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. October 6, 2015
    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. October 5, 2015
    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. September 7, 2015
    Dark Smoke 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! August 17, 2015
    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. August 3, 2015
    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. June 29, 2015
    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. June 27, 2015

    RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
    Morris R: Need new face shield. Fog problem in mornings. Giving pinlock a try. Nov 26, 2015
    C H: I have a Shoei RF1100 helmet which fits me perfectly and is comfortable. Nov 15, 2015
    Colin F: After hiding a 3600 mile trip this summer with my new Shoei Quest helmet, I loved the helmet but encountered a couple to times when I was in dangerous stormy and cold conditions and struggled with a fogged up shield at time that I needed visibility the most. If I knew what "pnlock" meant, I would have bought it before the trip and would have been prepared. The name does not describe its purpose. Nov 9, 2015
    Jonathan S: I have the light smoke with the insert and need one for night riding. Does a great job staying fog free. The original shield that comes with the Shoei Qwest fogs up very easily. One minor draw back is that the insert breaks it's seal and will fog. A simple adjustment to the pins normally fixes the issue, but it is still annoying when it happens. Nov 5, 2015
    Donald W: Just like the Shoei Quest - Great product! Oct 23, 2015
    MIKE A: At time of purchase, did not realize standard shield for Shoei Qwest has no anti-fog protection, despite breath guard. Unless you enjoy riding blind, you must have pinlock system for cold temps in early am or night. Sep 28, 2015
    Matty F: NO fog-ever. But there is more light election so beware. Sep 27, 2015
    Larry M: Factory Quest shield fogged in temperatures in the sixties. In my opinion, the Quest is a very poor quality helmet for the money spent, with its glued in liner (that I forgot about until trying to mount my Harley Communication System - you expect more from a company with this reputation). By the time you buy a pinlock insert, pinlock ready shield, and another shield for sunny days, you could have bought Shoei's top of the line touring helmet that comes fully equipped. Sep 25, 2015
    Neil H: Fog. Sep 13, 2015
    P A: Riding in cold weather without it is a major hassle. The pinlock shield helps a lot. Sep 9, 2015
    David H: OEM always fits, you know what you're getting. Sep 1, 2015
    Shirley L: Dark smoke looks best in track photos Aug 27, 2015
    James J: Wanted darker shield Aug 27, 2015
    Paul D: to go along with my brand new Shoei Qwest :) Aug 18, 2015
    Eric S: I needed a tinted face shield for my Shoe Quest helmet Aug 16, 2015
    James H: Fits my helmet, and the pinlock system is great Aug 4, 2015
    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 up Jun 2, 2015
    michael G: wanted a dark tinted screen for an upcoming trip May 24, 2015
    Gregor T: Replacement for my Quest helmet May 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
    Edward M: want to try it out, and need some level of tint for bright sunny days Mar 29, 2015
    Clifford C: they're holding a gun to my head. Mar 19, 2015
    Sverre A: Because my Shoei Qwest did not come with a Pinlock Face Shield. Mar 4, 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 fogging Jan 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
    Richard C: because it's raining! Dec 10, 2014
    Beric L: Bought this in "dark smoke" for those sunny days. Also pinlock ready so I can add insert later Dec 6, 2014
    Gerard D: Extra shield ordered to keep from switching from smoke to clear pin lock inserts. Nov 26, 2014
    cddddd: gift Nov 18, 2014
    Steve P: Wanted the pinlock fog proof system. Nov 10, 2014
    S P: never a problem with fogging after using this Oct 22, 2014
    James M: Love it!! Oct 4, 2014
    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 up Sep 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
    CHIKIN S: pinlock for helmet Sep 11, 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 haha Aug 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
    Franklin S: Good reviews. Jul 22, 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!!!!

    Duy T: For anti fog purposes Apr 3, 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.

    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.

    Thank you

    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

    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.

    Kenneth B: If it looks like the photo, it is a pinlock face shield. The black dots forward of the hinges are the pins and the oval shape between them (in the middle part of the face shield) is the internal piece that insulates the interior surface and reduces fogging. Nov 11, 2015

    Jonathan S asked: I have the CW-1 Pinlock and have been using it for a couple of months. The insert no longer makes a good seal against the face shield. I looked online for a possible solution and some have said this happens quite frequently and all you have to do is tighten the pins on the shield. Has anyone else had this problem and have tried that solution? Or was there a different fix action? Nov 3, 2015

    Vladimir L: Tightening the pins seems to be the easiest and most reliable solution.
    I did not know that, so I uninstalled the insert, added silicone caulk in suspicious place and installed it again. It worked, but took a long time to clean up the caulk.
    While doing that, I noticed that the plastic pins are eccentric, so by rotating them you can make the insert sealing tight or loose. No tools needed, can be done in seconds.
    Just straighten the shield enough to release pressure on the pin, then rotate the pin so it pushes the insert further to the shield center, that makes seal tighter.
    Good luck!

    Marc P: I've experienced the same thing. Adjusting the pins did help, but after awhile the problem came back. I was leaving my insert in permanently, but I've heard it is not good to leave the insert in long term and should be removed when not needed. Nov 4, 2015

    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

    A shopper asked: Hello,

    I have a Zox Rush Rx that does not the pre-drilled holes on the visor for the pinlock kit. Would I be able to somehow adapt it to my helmet?

    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.
