Shoei CX-1V Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
Could`nt find this item in Australia
Thankyou Revzilla, awesome guys to deal with.I looked high and low for this visor for my helmet here in Australia, all I could find was the Dark Tint Pin Lock visor and pin lock insert.I didnt want the Dark Pin Lock, I wanted the clear pinlock and insert, sorry says the distributor, all we have is 2 Dark visors left....2 dark visors for all the helmets they sold in Australia? I have never seen a Pinlock for this SHOEI Multitech helmet in Australia.So I Tried England, $235.00 ozzie dollars to ship it to me...WHAT THE...you know the rest...lol. How about the good old US of A, hardly a challenge,and it was much cheaper and more plentiful.So awesome service,awesome packing and now I`m a happy little vegemite.Thanks again Revzilla.

This is a direct replacement for the standard shield and with the insert eliminates any fogging
This is shield makes the helmet pin-lock ready. I have had trouble with my multi-tech helmet fogging even when using anti-fog products. Seems they would work for a day then have to be reapplied to prevent fogging. The pin-lock system (with insert) prevents fogging over the entire area of the insert, it works great. The only complaint is that I wish the insert was covered a little more of the visor at the top and bottom. There is a wide field of view, but there is a noticeable line at the top and bottom that is a little distracting, especially when using the smoke insert.

Does what it says
Have not had one incident of face shield fogging with the pinlock system. My only issue is why they have made it smaller than the field of vision. I thought the insert would cover the full face shield more or less. But its much smaller and looks peculiar. That said, if fogging is an issue there really isn't any other option.

Does what it says
I am using this on my Shoei Multitec helmet. I was skeptical about the fog-free insert actually working, but that it does, it works! Install was no issue and it's still crystal clear vision with the insert in. You can sometimes notice the edge of the insert in your peripheral vision which might annoy some people but I don't think it's enough to really distract. Airflow / noise / etc is all just the same as the shield that came stock.

Excellent product, but has common shortcomings
This shield works great, but like every other shield, you need to take a lot of care to keep the surfaces from getting scratched and marred.
When used with the anti-fog insert, there is absolutely no issue with fogging in the cold weather.

No more fog
The pinlock system really works. I just wish you could get a tinted visor to use with a clear pin lock lens insert instead of the other way around, but it does the job well.

Works as advertized
The Pinlock faceshield along with the pinlock insert work to reduce fogging as I found out last week, riding 4200 miles in 23 to 90 degree sun and rain, day and night. The only issues were reduced night visibility (as advertised) and the refraction/reflection of the edge of the pinlock insert. I put black tape along the top to alleviate that problem.
