It works!
I purchased the Pinlock lens and shield for my new Shoei Qwest. With the cold weather coming, I needed a good solution for visor fogging. I've tried various wipe-on products in the past, but wanted something that was more effective and that didn't need to be regularly reapplied. The Pinlock system does the trick. Whether it's cold or wet outside, or cold AND wet - no more fogging visor! No more need to crack the shield open at a traffic light to clear the mist!

What has also impressed me about the Pinlock system on the Shoei is that the visor insert extends to cover such a large area of the shield. The field of vision is great. The example pic doesn't do it justice.

Some have noted that under certain conditions that there can be some internal reflection artifacts, but I have gotten that even with non-Pinlock shields. As long as you are looking at the road instead of trying to look at the inner surface of the shield, you will not be bothered at all. The important thing is that there is no dangerous fogging to interfere with your vision.

I initially purchased a clear insert to go with the shield. It has worked so well for me that I have since purchased a dark smoke insert for those cold but sunny days.

Don't wait... Buy it!
Hands down, the absolute best bang for your buck investment EVER. I always had issues with fogging in the rain and cold. I tried every combination of suggestions to prevent it to no avail. After dropping my old shield while swapping from day to night I decided to try the pin-lock everyone was talking about. I'm so glad I did and you will be too.

Pinlock is GREAT!
After seeing some of the great reviews and hesitating because of the higher cost, I decided to finally try it. It works as describe and I'm truly amazed at how well it works. Absolutely zero fog, even at 35 degree weather standing still at a red light. I highly recommend it.

Does what it needs to do
I bought this shield for use with my anti-fog insert. The shield is exactly what I expected it to be and fits in my Shoei Qwest without issues. My anti-fog insert installed easily and now I have no fog build-up! Other Qwest owners will know how frustrating it is since the Qwest has very poor air management. I recommend this if you need the pinlock insert.
I bought the light smoke color because I wanted something to help for the bright days when I didn't have sunglasses with me. I love the light smoke; I have ridden at night with it and I can still see fine. It was a large concern of mine originally but I don't think it impairs my visibility at all.

I wasn't a big fan of having to drop $40 when I already had a face shield for my helmet, but the fog issue is very dangerous and I think it's worth it in the end.

Well made visor
Fits and seals perfectly, snaps right in, no issues. Dark smoke tint is actually great for all but the darkest of roads at night also.

Great shield, fits identical to OE.
I ordered the dark smoke, and it fits identical to the clear shield that shipped with my Shoei Qwest. It does a great job of blocking light, yet isn't so dark to see out of. Dark Smoke makes any helmet look tons better.

The shield does fog up somewhat easy (that's more a function of helmet geometry) but it also clears up incredibly fast. I'll be getting a pinlock lens in the near future.

I've only had my Qwest for a week, but something I was reminded of as I replaced the shield is how thick Shoei's shields are. I came from an HJC CS-RD (budget helmet) and looking back now that shield was incredibly thin compared to this.

Really works
Riding in NYC cold weather is no worries with fogging up w this. But not moving and heavy breathing can start to show alittle bit. Though the only problem can be the glare reflections on visuals sometimes. But pretty awesome most of the time. I am sold on using as much as possible.

Excellent design,great product
A great product for my Shoei Helmet. Unfortunately it didn't come with this shield. I used the fog inserts for this shield and already had a clear one. I bought another shield for my smoke color fog insert and highly recommend this shield. No more problems with fogging up the shield while riding when used with the fog inserts bought separately.

Works well, but be sure that you really need this
Pro: No fogging.

Con: Expensive piece of plastic. With insert in place the visor also catches on upper seal of helmet. Did I say this is a ridiculously expensive piece of plastic?

Summary: If you have excess beer money and live in wet/cold then ok... otherwise shield + insert are setting you back ~$80 so think hard about how easy it is to crack your current visor to dissipate minor condensation...

Great piece of equipment
I bought this face shield for my son for Christmas. It is exactly what he wanted. It is light weight, provides excellent vision, while providing protection. Thanks for your great products.
