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.
The CW-1 Photochromic Pinlock face shield fits SHOEI's RF-1100, Qwest, and X-Twelve helmets.
The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces.
100% UV protection.
Fades to 50% transmission in two minutes.
Features the Shoei Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System which allows for tool-less face shield removal and installation.
Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded Q.R.S.A. base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal between shield and helmet.
Manufactured by Transitions, the leading manufacturer of photochromatic lenses world-wide.
The Pinlock(r) Anti-fog Lens transforms your single shield into a dual shield that will resist any amount of fog buildup.
For use with Pinlock(r) inserts (sold separately).
