    Unusable after first cleanup

    This thing must be treated with extreme care. After cleaning it the first time with screen tissue, the surface was scratched. Very frustrating

    Incredible!

    I opted for the clear lens thinking I can always wear sunglasses on sunny days. It was 43 degrees and foggy this morning when I took off for a test ride with the new Pinlock insert. As my nature tends to be on the cynical side there was no quarter to be given even though I could see my breath before I even put the helmet on I opted to leave all vents on the helmet closed thinking the shield would probably fog up with no air flow. I was instantly impressed as my suspicions were proved wrong.

    Get the clear lens only

    I purchased light smoke however I believe they sent me dark smoke. I should have ordered clear as the lens is very fuzzy and the shading makes it useless. I probably can not return it since I opened it and tried it out once. I would not recommend purchasing this item unless you are stuck in fog every morning. If thats the case for you only go for the clear lens or you will end up like me with a useless piece of gear.

    too many distortions

    Bad news- the size of the insert is too small. It doesn't come up high enough on the top of the helmet's shield, so when I am tucked and looking through the top of my visor, the pinlock insert is about 1/2" too short and it causes double vision. On the freeway at night, with a stream of lights heading towards me, the Pinlock creates another set of lights, about 10 degrees above the car's lights, for double vision of just about any light I see.

    Must Have

    It absolutely positively works. If you spend any time in cool and\or damp riding conditions this is a MUST HAVE safety accessory. Others have noted it is very sensitive to wiping and even with that drawback YOU GOTTA HAVE THIS. It will save your hump if you get caught in a hot thundershower in heavy traffic.

    I'm amazed

    Living in the Pacific Northwest and being a year round rider I experience my share of fogged up visors. I was skeptical of this things effectiveness but I was wrong. It works amazingly well, more like perfectly well! I did have to adjust it a little for it to fit flat against the face shield but it was easy. It is pretty easy to scratch as I got some very minor scratches on it when I cleaned it after install. I will never ride in the damp season again without this thing installed.

    it works for anti fog, buy the clear one the rest is not useful

    I bought the original colored one. It is not that useful, cause the sun light still get's through once on the highway. It is really nice against fog, but don't try to get the other colors, not very practical. The clear one is worth every penny. Cause your shield won't fog up.

    Easier than sunglasses

    It always takes me a long time to put my sunglasses on with my helmet. I purchased a spare shield and inserted the dark gray insert hoping that this product would alleviate the aggravation of putting on my sunglasses (we are in sunny SoCal, so sunglasses are a MUST). I no longer have to struggle with sunglasses! I haven't tried it yet in the cold so I don't know how well the anti-fog feature works.

    insert

    The insert concept is great and if you do need to take it out it can store easily, but you do have to remove the shield the same you would if you had a clear and tinted shield. The insert is also VERY sensitive to what you wipe it with. Overall it is a good product, but because I always use a tank bag I might just go with two shields next time.

    Excellent fog solution

    Over 40+ years, I have used and tried everybody's fog solution, or at least it feels that way. Every year, someone comes up with some new solution, glaze, spray or whatever. Don't waste your money on these. The Pinlock Anti-fog insert works extremely well, it is the only solution that allows you a fog-free ride. It must be adjusted carefully, as the instructions point out. If you don't, you will have a foggy area where the insert does not press against the shield surface, allowing moisture to creep in. I suggest you buy a new clear Pinlock shield along with the Pinlock insert, and keep them together until the rain starts. That way, you won't have to worry about readjusting the insert so you maintain a proper seal. Treat it well, as the surface scratches easily. My wife made a bag just for the shield/insert together out of a new microfibre cloth towel. Prevents the shield and insert from getting scratched or dirty. I definitely give the Shoei Pinlock Fog Insert two thumbs way up.

    Great Product

    I live in the PNW and fogging in the helmet is very frequent due to the weather conditions in early and late riding seasons. I was a bit skeptical but this thing works like you would not believe, I cannot FORCE it to fog with this system. Anyone who rides early and late seasons in the PNW should buy this.

    A true no-fog option

    After trying some anit-fog coatings that didn't work, I finally bought a pinlock. This thing is GREAT! I can ride to work in 28 deg F and never even have to crack the visor. It abosolutely does not fog.

    Anti-fog works great but "dark smoke" tint causes glare

    5 stars for the anti-fog effectiveness of the Pinlock insert but the dark smoke tint results in quite a lot of glare on sunny days because the sun blazes through around the insert and causes reflections of eyeballs/cheekbone off the dark insert. It is not a problem on overcast days and shouldn't be an issue if the untinted insert is used.

    Pinlock Insert A++

    I no longer have any condensation or fog issue problems since installing the insert in my CW1 shield. The insert remains clear in inclement weather and I no longer have clear vision. I'm going to buy another insert for the summer and this insert has solved all my problems. During thick fog and heavy rain, I only need to keep wiping the outside shield now for visibility problems.
