Reviews & Questions
I bought the Gold Spectra CW-1 for my Shoei RF1100 flat black helmet. The reason I bought this particular one was two fold: first, the spectra reflective coating will keep my face cooler, and secondly, because of the looks... it's just flat out awesome looking! Plus, my bike is a deep yellow, so it compliments it nicely.
This is more expensive than a regular smoke lens, but you have to justify the difference yourself. For me, it was the looks... not because of being vain, but it's just different, and different gets you noticed, and being noticed keeps you alive!!
Performance: The tint level is similar to my Ray-Ban sunglasses but not as dark as my dark Oakley's. In Texas, the sun can be intense. While I haven't had to wear sunglasses underneath, I do end up squinting a bit, but not uncomfortably. On occasion because of the intensity, there is a bit of glare back on the inside of the lens... again, not horribly noticeable. The fit onto my helmet required two tries. The first time I didn't read the instructions, but did the job. On my first ride I had a bit of a whistle, so before I adjusted the tension, I read the instructions and did the install again and it worked perfectly. Perfect seal!
Day vs Night Time Riding: This is the big issue for most visors... do I need to carry two visors? For me... No. The tint on this Gold Spectra is dark enough to keep me comfortable during the day, absolutely perfect on a slightly cloudy day, and not dark enough to hinder my riding at night. Now, keep in mind, I'm riding in city / suburban areas, so there is typically ambient light to help illuminate the road, but the visor is perfectly fine. In fact, the day I wrote this review I rode to work on a dark overcast morning and it was absolutely fine... no concerns what so ever.
Issues: Fogging... not a big issue, but I have noticed on cool mornings, it tends to fog quickly when stopped. I may try some divers anti-fog spray, but in reality, this isn't a show-stopper. Yes, I'd love for it not to fog, but I'd also love for it to automatically transition to clear also, but the technology isn't quite there yet. Yes, I know there is a transitions lens coming out for the CW-1, which is what I was waiting on, but they keep delaying it... it's been delayed for over a year, so I decided to get this one and stop waiting. Now, the only other issue is the tint level. I'm even debating as I write this to whether it is really an issue. Because, the tint level right now is perfect for daytime riding and can accommodate night time riding. But, I'd like it a bit darker for daytime, but then that would probably mean I'd need a clear lens for night... so you decide.
Cleaning: One original concern I read about was durability... people say the iridium finish scratches. I don't know about that yet... I store my helmet in the Shoei helmet bag and am not rough with it. It's taken many bugs to the face and cleanings, but looks brand new. I clean it using the Honda Pro Spray & Wax Cleaner that I use on my bike. It lifts the dirt and buffs to a perfect reflective shine.
Verdict: This is a great shield. The gold spectra is just awesome. It keeps it dark enough for day and light enough for night. And the other thing... it's noticeable. Not just noticeable but super hero noticeable... like an astronaut!! I ride a Can Am Spyder so people already think it's a Transformer, but adding this visor just completes the package of awesomeness!!
Didn't use it at night and probably wouldn't recommend unless you have some superpowers or something because I had it on my helmet on a rainy day and it doesn't repel water like the original clear shield so my vision was limited, other than that great shield and does't scratch but you CAN'T use dry paper towel to clean it. wet cotton towel works best
I have a Black and Hi-Viz yellow Helmet and this compliments it perfectly giving it a very Stylish look.
I have ridden long and short distances in all sorts of weather and light conditions including rain, direct sunlight, night time riding (city as well as highway).
I was initially concerned that night riding would be disadvantageous with this visor for obvious reasons, but my doubts were unfounded. I have now ridden many times at night with this Face Shield and can vouch that as long as you have a decent headlight on your bike to light your way, this face shield does not hamper driving at night.
It gives you very decent protection from harsh glare during summer riding also and unless you are riding with sun shining directly into your eyes, this product is perfect for all times.
I am going to make sure that I buy this tinted face-shield every time I change my helmet. Full marks for this product

Tint is great. Near the darkest tint. I have no fatigue or pain from the light. Can see through perfectly and the blue tint looks more like a dark grey.
Have tried the smoke and dark tint and like the dark tint and spectra better. Though like spectra better because does the same but easier to see through (brighter view).
Always loved spectra on my sunglasses and it is just as good for the visor.
I love my new shield. I was a bit worried that it might be too dark but it works well even near twilight. (Haven't attempted to ride at night yet with it on, though I'd be hesitant.) Also, there is zero optical distortion.
I get headaches often from light and this helps very well for me and I don't have to worry about sunglasses moving around on my face or digging into my temples. Even does well when the sun is low on the horizon and glaring into your face.
*Tips for cleaning*
I always carry disposable glasses cleaner wipes. They work well on bugs if you wipe them off right after the ride.
Sometimes they streak or you may have trouble getting the visor back to that mirror shine. In this case use a gentle dish soap and water on a soft microfiber cloth. Only has to be damp. Then wipe dry.
No fit/finish issues.
A little on the expensive side but you do get what you pay for. If you're on the fence just buy it.
My experience is the Spectra range work far better at both glare reduction, as well as minimising heat.
I've used a range of Arai, Shoei and aftermarket faceshields and I have been very happy with mine.
Appreciate if anyone can clarify. Thanks.
I'm considering getting the Qwest with this.
