Shoei CW-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
Expensive but effective
Really helps in cold or rainy conditions. Allows you to keep the visor down with no fogging at all.
Can't comment on long term seal of the silicone bead on the insert, but Shoei tends to make quality products, so....
I really do wish these things were a bit cheaper. The shield and insert are going to run you more than $80 and if you want different colors you need to get a new shield (and probably insert too, since it doesn't seem like a good idea to be unseating and reseating the bead on the insert).

the thing I was looking for
i just broke my origin lens on my Shoei RF-1100, so it's just came on time. Fits great, very clear vision, pin-lock system works as it should

works just as advertised for helping avoid fog up. Does cause some distortion at night, but better than being fogged up.

This is a very high quality OEM visor. It's durable and fits the Qwest helmet perfectly, and the pinlock insert (bought separately) installed easily.

Wish it came standard with the Shoei Qwest!!
I really wish the Shoei Qwest came standard with a fog free, photo chromic face shield, which would have truly justified its premium price and put all the tick marks in its feature list too.I so loooooovvvve my Qwest Overt which I bought during closeout. However the face shield, pinlock ready lens, breath guard and chin curtain (which I say are an absolute essential) set me back by another $97. Which means the helmet actually came back to its full price (prior to closeout).
No matter how hard you try, this lens is absolute FOG FREE and worth owning it. Having it as standard would've gone a long way to surely increase customer delight.

This is my review of the Shoei CW-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield and pinlock lens. it is an fantastic product. try as i may i could not get it to fog up. I can not imagine how i survived without it. The one thing i do have to say about it is that i am disappointed that it did not come with a sleeve to store it in. I use a dark smoke shield. so i do change out the shield on occasion. you would think you spend 80$ on everything they could give you a 2 dollar bag to keep it in. Overall a good buy.

Don't wait... Buy it!
Hands down, the absolute best bang for your buck investment EVER. I always had issues with fogging in the rain and cold. I tried every combination of suggestions to prevent it to no avail. After dropping my old shield while swapping from day to night I decided to try the pin-lock everyone was talking about. I'm so glad I did and you will be too.

Good for a replacement and knowing it's an OEM product, but kinda expensive for what it is.
