Shoei CWR-1 Photochromatic Pinlock Faceshield for RF1200, RF SR and X-14 Helmets by Transitions

Transitions Photochromic technology allows visors to automatically and seamlessly change from clear to dark in sunlight. The process works when photochromic dyes embedded into the lens or shield react to UV light, changing levels of darkness with the sun.

When UV light is removed, a chemical reaction driven by ambient heat reconverts the activated photochromic molecules to their original, clear form and the lens fades.

Features:

  • 100% UV protection
  • Fades to 50% transmission in two minutes
  • Anti-reflective coating
  • Pinlock ready
  • Manufactured by Transitions, the leading manufacturer of photochromatic lenses world-wide
  • Pinlock Lens Insert sold separately 

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

It was worth the wait!
I've been using a Bell RS-1 with the Transitions shield for three years now an it has performed wonderfully with the exception of it's terrible fogging in colder temps.<br><br>I've known the Shoei RF-1200 was a better helmet but was waiting to purchase one once the Photochromic shield became available. I happened to find a local shop here in Brooklyn that had just gotten the shield in and I bought a Black Metallic RF-1200 at the same time. The fact that the Shoei comes with a pinlock insert for the Transitions shield will cure my fogging ills. Bell Helmets could learn something from Shoei here!<br><br>The shield is optically clear after checking it out thoroughly. It also gets a little darker that my Bell Transitions does, though the rate of change is the same (as was expected since it's the same technology).<br><br>(Sorry Revzilla, they got the shield before you did and beat your prices for both as well. I've bought thousands of dollars worth of gear from you in the past year, so I hope you don't mind me posting this review, though I purchased elsewhere).

A good idea and should add convenience to my rides, but wait!
I received the visor!! It was on back order for a long time. It's good to be in possession of it finally. When I opened the shipping box, the visor was packed in what appeared to be a UV protective sealed sleeve. I immediately thought that this might be to prolong its life. But why would this be necessary? Well, in reading the very small product description on the UV barrier sleeve, this product has a limited life. It doesn't state how long, but eventually the shield will not go fully clear even when riding at night. It's performance is also effected by various weather conditions. Hmm, this is a bit of a buzz kill. $153 for a limited life product. I think this is something that should be included in a web site's product description. That said, I will ride with this shield and see how it performs short term and see how it holds up over the long term. I bought it, it's mine, I'll use it. I hope I feel I got my money's worth when it finally degrades to an unusable condition. That's a lot of money for a shield. Hope it lasts! I'll update after I've had a chance to use it for a while. Good roads, everyone!

Does not get dark enough
For the money you pay for this...I'm sorry....i'm pretty disappointed in the performance of this transition shield. I would only buy this shield if you absolutely need it. if you are regularly out from day time into the night.<br>The shield requires strong sunlight to get dark, so mornings when sun is up, but the temp is down, the shield is almost clear. Overcast days...it's still basically see through (clear). In strong high noon type of light, the shield gets darker, but still quite a few shades lighter than the regular smoked shield. I always feel like ppl can see through this shield no matter how tinted it gets. I want a dark a shield!<br>Now, in no light, it's clear as clear. it's great there. But for rides where I know i'll be home before dark, I see myself not using this shield anymore, and going back to the regular tinted. This $150 shield is going to stay on the shelf for occasions when I know i'll be out late, which is a shame because this is supposed to be a do it all shield.

Doesn't get dark enough
It's a Shoei product, and fits perfectly. Just doesn't get dark enough, and it turns purple-ish instead of smoke. I live in Hawaii and need to wear sunglasses under it...

Fantastic
I may start by saying that you pay what you get. Yes it is expensive but it's because is not just a regular photocromatic face sheald, it's Transition!!! Which is the best photocromatic technology in the world today, is a brand and its patented. You can compare it with gore-tex in water proof wear or vibram in shoes.

Does it makes a difference? Yes it does!!! It gets really dark and fast.

Any limitations? Of course.
1. It won't get clear as fast, it make take some time.
2. Eventually it will stop working as good as new. I can't tell about this face shield in particular because I just got it but my eye glasses with the same transition lens are still working perfectly after 2 years of daily use.

Why do I know this stuff? Because I'm an ophthalmologist and I see the difference between any photocromatic lens and the "transitions" and I only recommend original transitions.

I will recommend it definitely

Finally able to ride without sunglasses
I've always rode with sunglasses and a clear shield so I'd be covered both day and night. I've done a few night rides with a dark tinted shield and it's dangerous to say the least.<br><br>This Transitions shield fits just like the original and the tinting action works perfectly. It reacts quickly to the sun (UV) and thus far I have not had the need to wear sunglasses as it gets dark enough for my liking. It's amazing how much my field of vision has increased once I stopped wearing sunglasses... and no more pain points where the helmet pads pressed the temples into my head.<br><br>I would not hesitate at all to recommend this product.

Good shield, don't have to worry about changing
I really like this shield and felt it was worth the wait. During mid-day its dark enough to make it comfortable to ride since the sun is high in the sky. At dawn/dusk if you manage to ride into the sun it cuts out enough light that your not squinting. Not the best solution but way better than buying two shields and having to carry them around if you get stuck having to ride at night.

Not dark enough
Before I owned a Shoei helmet and their transition shield I had a Bell helmet with their transition shield. Both perform very differently, and after weighing the pros and cons it boils down to a "matter of preference" (and I use quotation marks because it's really a matter of which feature you're willing to sacrifice).<br><br>So first of all, and most importantly, The Shoei shield doesn't get as dark as Bell's. On the few occasions the sun was in the perfect position to blind me, I found myself squinting and trying to avoid the sunlight. I never had to do this with my Bell face shield.<br><br>However, since it rarely is a problem I've been willing to overlook this flaw thanks so the pin-lock feature. IF ONLY BELL HAD A PIN-LOCK VERSION! I start riding last winter (almost one year exactly) and my face shield fogging up was a major issue for me; more so than the sun being too bright.<br><br>So it's worked for me and I don't necessarily have buyer's remourse, but sometimes I do kind of wish my shield got a little darker...

Get this!!
After riding with sunglasses under the shield, this is the way to go. I commute for my night shift job, so I ride in when the sun is up and ride home when it's dark. Pinlock shields work fine for making sure your shield doesn't fog, but doesn't do a thing for the sunglasses under your shield. This eliminates that problem, and also eliminates the comfort issue of riding with shades on under your lid. Going in to work, the shield is nice and dark, it's clear on the way home. It's by far safer than riding with a shield that's 24/7 tinted. There are some slight double-vision issues with the pinlock at night (why Shoei doesn't recommend using it at night), but it's pretty easy for me to compensate for this. All in all, I love this shield. It's the best thing you can do for your helmet.

Another win for SHOEI
Great addition to an already great helmet.I wear glasses so know I don't have to change shields or clip on sunglasses,RevZilla nailed it again with excellent fast shipping. Shield started out turning a purple shade and keeps getting darker each time out. Little expensive but quality is well worth it.

Gregory I on Aug 27, 2017
I wear glasses, and don't want to change from sun glasses to my regular prescription; plus, I often ride from daylight into night, so tinted visors not ideal when riding at night. Hopefully this will meet all my needs. good reviews
Todd B on Aug 25, 2017

Xerxes A on Aug 23, 2017

Karen H on Aug 20, 2017
To many times I forget my clear visor at home and need to switch out my face shields when riding home from work and school at night. Plus it protects your eyes from direct sunlight which can strain you when riding in bright sunlight.

Jose L on Jun 11, 2017
Have the RF-1200 and wanted something that can be used without changing the shield. I have read several reviews along with YouTube videos and they are all positive.
John C on Jun 7, 2017
This solves the obvious problem of adapting to different light conditions. Now if the sun finally comes out, I don't have to fish out my sun glasses, or replace the shield. The Transitions shield is a little darker under low light conditions than i might like, and I wouldn't use it at night, but for normal daytime riding, it works very well.
Arthur H on May 18, 2017
This is the only shield I would use on a Shoe RF 1200 helmet . I only require one shield day or night .

I live in Phoenix and I commute to work on my motorcycle every day, when the weather permits. Which is 90% of the year. So, having the Transitions Shield will work out perfectly for me. Especially considering that heat affects the tinting. Perfect for this hot city.

Does this work for the Shoei X-12 ?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this will not fit the Shoei X-12.
Does this shield fit the GT-Air Shoei Helmets?
Gabriella D on Dec 13, 2015
What's Shoei's logic with introducing this shield so late in the season - nearly a year after the helmet? Was expecting it in the first quarter of 2014, per the hype accompanying the launch of the RF-1200 last fall. Are there production issues? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Shoei has embraced the photochromic tech. Just not understanding their product cycle...
Allan H on May 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The release date keeps slipping. When the helmet was release in the fall of 2013 the photochromic shield was said to be coming in January '14. Then it was pushed back to August '14. Now, it's been pushed again to January '15. Shoei, I'm just speculating here, but I would just about think anyone who wanted this has already gone another direction. Anyone from Revzilla know what the real issue is with Shoei's production cycle? When there are already photochromic shields on the market, and have been for more than a year, it's hard to imagine what is causing the delay for Shoei on the RF-1200.
hi, will this shield fits shoei neotec??
Hector B on Jun 20, 2016
I understand this if for the RF-1200 but do they plan to make similar shields for the GT-Air or Neotech helmets? Or is it not going to be a option because of the drop down visor?
A S on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Considering that it is going on two years now for the RF-1200 version and it has been pushed back again I would not hold your breath for the even newer models any time soon.
Will this shield work with the Neotec modular helmet?
Ron Z on May 5, 2016
Will this fir a Shoei RF1100?
Andrew B on Apr 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No , this shield looks very similar to the RF 1100 shield but this shield will not fit on the RF1100 . The lever to lift and drop the the shield is identical but placed in a different place.
How long does this last before yellowing or not returning to clear? I have heard that transitions have a limited life before this happens.
Matthew C. B on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've only had mine since November but so far it has shown no signs of changing.
I understand that it says that this lens is meant for the RF-1200, but I thought that the RF-1200, RF-1100 and the qwest uses the same lens system. I would really appreciate if someone could clarified is this product only works on the RF-1200 or could it also work on either the qwest or RF-1100?
Sharif m on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It only fits the RF-1200 the shields are different for the other models. It really doesn't matter though as this shield will most likely never be available. It has been almost two years now that it has come up for pre-order. I have had it on pre-order more than one and each time after months they just end up refunding the money and pulling it from the site. If you do not have a helmet already go with the Bell that has had a good quality transition shield for years now.
Does anyone have an update on the availability of this product? Thanks.
Jairo M on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Put your email on revzilla drop notification and when available and order as soon as you receive the notification.
