Shoei CX-1V Pinlock Antifog Faceshield
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.

A essential product for my ride

the insert DOES NOT cover the entire opening so thee is some sun that gets in, the shield I got which is the darkest is not dark enough block the sun 100%, I still wear sun sunglasses under to keep the sun out.

does exactly what it said it would.
My Shoei RF1000 has always fogged the second the visor was closed. I've had to leave it cracked open a bit, I installed the pinlock and I can't get it to fog even if I try. Worth every penny.

Works as advertised.
I purchased this shield for my Shoei RF1000 once I found out that it was available with Pinlock. You must also purchase the Pinlock lens to complete the system. Winter riding always causes fogging of the shield in my area. With the Pinlock shield and lens there is no fogging. Period. Like magic! Peripheral vision is somewhat compromised on the sides but not a real issue compared to the fogging problem. I found that I had to rotate the pins to install the shield with an airtight seal. The pins have a cam which facilitates this. I recommend watching the video for lens installation on the shield.

Product did exactly as described and even when I am stopped, there is absolutely no fog.

Seems to work
Haven't had an opportunity to take this shield on a long ride yet . Preliminary testing, however, indicate this is works well. Certainly much better than the sprays, wipes, mists, clothes, and voodoo talismans I have tried so far. Since there really isn't anything else to try and everything else I've tried simply doesn't work then this is the ticket.
