One face shield to rule them all, this puppy is a direct replacement ClickRelease face shield for Bell Vortex, Star, Revolver EVO, RS-1, RS-2, Qualifier and Qualifier DLX Helmets. Leave it to good ‘ol American ingenuity to create a line of helmets that all use one face shield, eliminating the need to keep track of tricky nomenclature when trying to order a new shield for your favorite lid.

Shoei CWR-1 Pinlock Ready Faceshield

The CWR-1 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield fits Shoei RF-1200, RF-SR and X-14 Helmets and provides a vast field of vision that rivals other face shields. In addition to protecting against 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, the CWR-1 face shield offers a distortion-free view throughout the entire range thanks to Shoei’s 3D injection-molding process. While the CWR-1 does not feature the Vortex Generators found on the CWR-F, innovative ribs on the top and bottom edge of the shield improve rigidity and eliminate the bending that may occur from wind pressure and during the opening and closing process. Finally, the improved shield locking mechanism rounds out Shoei’s most advanced shield system to date.

Pinlock lens insert sold separately.

Shoei CWR-1 Photochromatic Pinlock Faceshield for RF-1200, 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.
