I wish I had bought this years ago
I ride year-round in Michigan as long as there is no snow/ice on the road. This means I ride when it's really cold out. I've tried both CatCrap and Clarity Defog It and neither worked very well. It was 30 degrees and foggy this morning and my Pinlock shield kept my field of vision perfectly clear, even during a lengthy wait for a train to pass. The area around the insert fogged up while I waited for the train but my field of vision was perfectly fog-free. This thing is like a little miracle. I only wish I had spent the money and gotten it years ago. If you are on the fence about trying one, just go ahead and make the leap. You won't regret it.

the best anti fog insert ever
I have this on my other shoei shields and love it. I'm not one fore the tinted ones and they don't cover the whole shield but the clear one works perfectly. <br>It's removable and therefore can be easily cleaned.

Great system!
Works great, just wish the system was available with tinted shields, because I don't think the clear shield with tinted lens looks very good in the pics. Stays fog free in the cold and with a facemask on. No venting needed!

I have owned this product before and when I changed helmets, I have to upgrade to the Pin Lock - nothing works better!

Great Product!
Just got back from a 1400 mile ride up the coast of Nor Cal,Oregon and Washington.I did not have one problem with it fogging up in any weather condition(rain,fog,drizzle,heat or sun).The lens installed without a hitch and cleans up easy!My vision was not affected in any way during daylight or dusk.I have a Shoei RF 1000 helmet and used a clear visor and lens and also wear glasses.The only thing I regret is that I didn't purchase this years ago.A must have!

Easy to remove and replace.
The Shoei CX-1V Pinlock Antifog Lens is very easy to remove and replace and is very light. I picked the dark smoke color. It works very well in colder temperatures since it doesn't fog and in hot temperatures since it helps keep your face cool.

Great for riding riding at night and when overcast.
This product works as advertised, there isn't much more to say. It's easy to swap for a tinted insert when riding with the sun in your eyes.

This is a great product with one small exception.
This product works as advertised. My only problem with it is when wearing polarized sun glasses, vision becomes distorted and I can't read my bike's display screen. This is really not a big deal because in most sunny conditions I would just change out the visor to a tinted standard visor anyway. Those early morning rides when it is cool and dry I just crack open my tinted visor a bit and use the clear pinlock screen only when it is raining. I wouldn't bother having a tinted pinlock insert as you still have to take the visor off the bike to change it for darker conditions.. Every time you change you risk scratching or smudging.

to update an older helmet for a better riding experience when humid and hot to prevent fogging, It works great!

Will be touring in another country and someone recommended it. I don't normally wear a full face helmet.
MaryBeasst on Apr 29, 2015
This insert fit my helmet and eliminated fogging. Also can be swapped for a tinted insert until I get an internal tinted shield helmet.
Steve B on Mar 31, 2015
You need both the pin-lock ready shield and the pin-lock lens for the system to work.
Jeffery G on Jan 7, 2015
I often ride early mornings to work and the cold weather fogs up my regular face shield even after applying anti-fog or RainX products. These absolutely work to eliminate any fogging. I do wish the insert had more coverage area, especially at the top since the gap it creates with the top of the shield is annoying when you tip your head down (i.e. tuck position). You almost have to keep your head upright all the time to avoid the distraction.
Alex S on Sep 15, 2014
Once you have owned pinlock you can't own a helmet without it.

Pin lock insert for foggy days, works very well base on earlier experience.
Panu S on Jun 23, 2014
This pinlock system has been absolutely phenomenal. It's works perfectly in cold weather conditions. I live in west Tennessee and the temps can get to single digits from time to time and this pinlock system has been invaluable to me for winter riding.
M D on May 26, 2014
Pinlock is as good as it gets....if you have problems with fogging, this is the way to go! Works VERY well!

After reading a lot of reviews about the effectiveness of Pinlock I decided to bite the bullet and replace the current system with it.

This will help eliminate face shield fogging and add a little tint to the face shield for my morning commute.

They really do work, no misting. And it's lasted a long time.

Is there a special bag/case that this thing can be stored in when not using? We just bought the Neotec, love the anti fog lens but worry about what to put it in. Don't want to use just anything, as we are worried that the silicone seal would pick up "fuzz" pretty easy.

Thanks a bunch,

Stephanie

BEST ANSWER: I leave the pinlock insert in place all of the time and use a clear or tinted lens when the fog resistance isn't needed.
Will this pinlock fit a shoei RF 1200 lens?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the pinlock fit perfectly on my RF1200 lens.
Pinlock, schminlock, I dunno! Will these cool anti-foggers fit my RF-1000 that I still use?

Thanks in advance!
A shopper on Feb 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: In order to utilize the Shoei CX-1V Pinlock Antifog lens on your shield, you will first need to install a CX-1V Pinlock Antifog Faceshield, which we've linked to below.
Are the CX-1V lenses interchangeable with the CW-1 lens (http://www.revzilla.com/product/shoei-cw-1-pinlock-lens)?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Shoei CX-1V Pinlock Antifog Lens is compatible with the Shoei CX-1V Pinlock Shields only.
