Shoei CW-1 Faceshield

The Shoei CW-1 Face Shield fits Shoei Qwest, Shoei RF1100 and Shoei X-12 Helmets. Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back into contact with the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal.

Features:

  • Three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A and B rays
  • Pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow
  • Mellow Smoke refers to a tint that is lighter than the Light Smoke shield

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

Half-tone smoke
As with all Shoei items, the quality is top rate. The half-tone smoke is a good compromise - it gives sun protection of the darker shields in the upper portion reducing eye strain, but not eating up too much light.

I live in an area where roads can transition from full sun to deep shade quickly. I always felt that the light smoke didn't block enough light, but the dark too much when dropping into deep shade. The half-tone does a great job of protecting from the high sun while leaving the ability to see clearly in transitional light situation.

One thing folks might want to know is that the tint has a distinct purple hue. It's not really noticeable from behind, but it's not the more neutral grey of the smoke lenses.

My only fault is that this lens is at a premium price. I do like it, and do recommend it. But it would be a better value at the same price point as the clear and light/dark smoke versions

Light smoke, ideal for wider range of riding conditions
I've had a Shoei RF-1100 for a while now (great helmet), but only 2 shields: one clear and the other in dark smoke. This is why I needed an in-between tint and the light smoke is excellent.

The dark shield is great for bright, sunny days (and it looks awesome), but it's too dark for evening and nights. Sometimes I get caught out on rides that go really late and have to ride with the dark smoke shield up to really see. I think the light smoke is a great functional balance between clear and the dark shields. I don't mind riding with the lighter tint at night.

Love it!
Bought this and I actually like it better than the original clear one I have. It doesn't fog up like the original one that comes on the helmet. I got caught with it riding at night and I could still see perfectly fine. Totally worth it.

The dark tint is fantastic!!
The dark tint for the Shoei CW-1 for the Shoei RF-1100 is awesome. It's dark enough that other people can't see you, but you can easily see them. Honestly, at night-time you could probably ride with it down. I'm not recommending this, but riding with the visor down is possible! Besides, it looks kick-butt on your helmet and you can stare at hot chicks without them knowing! Incredibly easy to install... just flip the two switches when the visor is in the upright position, and it pops out. Can do it in literally 10 seconds.

Light smoke
This light smoke shield is dark enough to protect from sunlight, but also light enough that if you get caught riding at night the visibility is still good!

Great visor, worth the upgrade!
I got a Dark Smoke and thought it was to dark but it wasn't. Look dark from the outside but once you put it on it's not dark at all. Dark enough to keep the glare away but not dark enought where you can ride in shades and on cloudy days, even at evening hours. It was hard to put on the helmet because it was dark and I couldn't see the hole that the clip goes in, other then that it was a snap to put on. The lens was clear and without any defect. Great product from Shoei.

Great Visor - Dark Smoke
I really like the fact that it has both UVA and UVB protection. Also the system of changing it I have to say is a lot easier than the Arai.

Great Helmet Visor!
I purchased the "Dark Smoke" visor after my sunglasses broke. The visor is almost the same color as my solid gloss black helmet, but is tinted to an extent of a rear side window of a car. You could use this at night, but I wouldn't suggest it for long rides (>30 minutes) or rural areas that do not have street lights. The Dark Smoke tint works rather good for a shade for the eyes, but not as good as a decent pair of sunglasses. Like I said, the tint is comparable to a rear side window of a car. (I noticed the similarity to my 2007 GMC Envoy). Other than that, I did not need to adjust the visor to the helmet (quality standards of Shoei). If you have to adjust it, you are given instructions on during so.

I also would not recommend getting polarized sunglasses if you drive your motorcycle almost everyday with a full faced shield. I purchased a $200 pair of polarized sunglasses and they are in route back to the company already. The combination of the polarization of the sunglasses and ANY plastic visor that I had (three different brands of helmet and four different visors) created a distracting iridescent look on everyone's windshields and anything else that was shiny. (Manhole covers and blacktop parking lots even had this effect) I could further describe this effect by an oily surface or snake skin.

Dark smoke perfect for daytime riding
I ordered dark smoke as a daytime riding shield. When it arrived, I was like "Woh, that's dark!" As soon as I put it on the helmet and went outside, it was perfect. Couldn't be happier with the tint. It definitely looks way darker than it is during use. Not sure about night time. Haven't tried. Daytime, blocks out the sun and glare, provides a bit of privacy. These shields are pricey for sure. This is an "affordable" option to more expensive shields - plus the mirror coated shields scratch easy and let in lens flares once scratched. I'm very happy with the shield.

Wife likes it !
We bought a Shoei helmet for my wife and she likes the fit. But her prescription sunglasses do not fit well under the helmet.

So this dark shield is her eye savior.

She no longer has to squint or close her eyes due to glare or sunshine. She is much more relaxed when riding pillon.
