Shoei CX-1V Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
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.

Must Have Sheild
This shield is a must have for any serious all season rider that owns a Shoei RF1000. No chemical on the market is going to keep fog from forming on your shield. This product will be the first step in fog free riding.

Nothing is as good as a Pinlock.
I've tried many other products and nothing is quite as good as a pinlock.

The race version is better as the top seal is higher and therefore out of your eyeline.
Great product that I have used for years. Great if the race version was available.

Sorry I waited so long
I had held off getting this Pinlock system because it's a bit pricey getting the shield and the insert together and not knowing if it could handle the heavy fogging on my Shoei RF1000.
Well, the combination of the Pinlock shield and the Pinlock lens insert WORKS! Even sitting at a long stop light with the visor closed and 45 degrees out, the Pinlock lens stays completely clear of any fog.
I went with the clear Pinlock shield and the clear Pinlock lens and the clarity and overall visability is excellent with or without the lens inserted. I haven't ridden with the lens insert after dark yet though.
