My Shoei RF1200 has a Transitions shield with the Pinlock system and I just installed the Pinlock inner shield in it. Snapped in perfectly. There is a gasket so no dust can enter the space. Fogging is nigh impossible with the Pinlock inner shield in place. Visibility is not noticeably affected by the additional pane.

Transitions shields, a different thread, it is wonderful but as a person with light blue eyes, I am especially sensitive to bright light. In the summer on bright days, I suspect I will still need my Ray Ban G12 lenses under the Transitions shield.

My Nolan has a drop down visor that comes in real handy in place of transitions. I became exposed to the drop down visor with my half helmet. So with the Nolan I have everything, pinlock and drop down visor. I do think they make a transitions visor for it as well though.

There doesn't seem to be a transition shield for my Arai but I got their Pro shield which is an external flip down dark shield, perfect for commuting where I ride in the dark or at dawn one way and into the sun or sunset on the other depending on the season.
It makes a little noise when it's up but it's not too bad.

The Ray Ban G15 lens is 15% transmittance of visible light. The Transition adaptive lens is 23% at maximum darkness. I often wear glacier glasses in the summer (for beach or boating use) which is around 9% to 10% transmittance. Vampires are not the only folks with sunlight issues :nerd:.

You taking bets on that for my hot breath on our cold mornings here???:smile_big::smile_big::smile_big:
Glad to. It really works that well. I just don't like looking through it. So my face is all chapped from the frigid air on my cheeks every morning. Is okay. Kind of miss it in the rain, though. It's incredible how much the visor fogs up in 40 degree rain. Sometimes I just throw the thing wide open and ride slow with eyes exposed.

I have 2 visors for my helmet; the one that came with it (clear) and a second pinlock version (smoked) that the store installed for me. It took them some time but they put them together all of the time. In fact they ruined the first attempt and did it a second time to get it perfect. I switch visors depending on sun/no sun and in the cold, I would never use anything other than the pinlock because of how it helps with fog.

That sound funny but mine is sitting in the trunk of my bike in 30 degree weather right now, it will be nice and cold later when I ride home from work. It does take about 10 minutes to warm up after cold soaking like that all day.


Don't put your helmet in the fridge before a ride
