Customer Product Reviews
Makes a difference
It is a must have accessory for riders who don't stop when the thermometer scale moves away from 20 C. Don't forget to install a nose piece though to make is more efficient.
As with any Pinlock it's always good. This will be my winter visor for my daily commute once my smoke visor gets removed for the darker days. The tint works well and good for for the sun but what I would say if it went slightly darker I would be happier but can't fault it.
Fantastic item, was having trouble with the low winter sun in the morning but often drive home in the dark so and didn't want to have to keep swapping the visor. This was fab! It's not that noticeable a colour change from inside your helmet until you lift the visor and realise how bright it is, blocks out enough sun so you can ride safely and is completely clear in the dark too. Only 1 tiny problem is the reactive coating seems to have a slight wave pattern which is noticeable and slightly annoying until you get used to it and actually isn't half as annoying as having the sun blind you so overall very good purchase.
I always buy helmets with pinlock. This reduces all fogging as it should. The react-to-light tint is subtle and not as immediate as a drop down visor. Arai do not do drop down tinted visors as they feel it compromises safety . The tint only really kicks in if it's very bright sun and does not wear off quickly if you then go through an area in shade. It's a nice touch though.
Very impressed, worth every penny
I've used clear Pinlock for years and already know they are fantastic I cant imagine riding without one. No misting of the visor ever. I don't like dark visors, didn't want a drop down sun visor in a helmet and have always used sunglasses but after a while they do get uncomfortable and you get those horrid moments when you go through a dark tunnel or a shaded area and cant see the road surface properly. Someone told me about the UV reactive Pinlock a while ago. I looked at them several times but didn't buy one as they are expensive. Eventually after missing some gravel though a shaded area with my sunglasses on I decided I'd get one - its one of my best buys! Truly brilliant I find it changes light and dark very quickly and cant imagine riding without it now. It reduces glare and is great in bright sunlight. Also their is no noticeable gap around the edge of the Pinlock at all which I was worried about. Well worth the money and highly recommended.
It's a must for commuting
High quality product, it doesn't go quite dark, but enough to stop you squint. I have to mention that the Sportsbikeshop team is brilliant. I'm really impressed with the speed they solve issues.
Better than nothing
My commute to work goes down a road running due East West. So get the low sun this time of year directly in my eyes on the way into work and again on the way home. This Pinlock reduces the suns glare OK if it's an overcast day. But not so good if the sun's fully out. Have now ordered an Arai sun visor..
No misting up and the tint works well, but does not go quite dark enough, which is noticeable when sun is low and in your face. Convenience factor though is excellent, and a high quality product. Would recommend.
A little underwhelmed
To be honest im completely underwhelmed by this product considering all the 5* reviews. It does tint quickly BUT its barely noticeable. I only realized it had worked by looking above it to see the visor itself was brighter. If you're looking for something to protect you from the sun then I think a permanently dark insert would be a much better option and then you can remove it for night riding. Its worked flawlessly in preventing my visor misting up though.
Shame Arai don't have internal sun visors, but this is brill. I have no complaints, tints enough to stop you squinting and clears when the sun fades, so if you prefer riding with a clear visor this is for you. (Arai Axces 2).
Perfect solution to suit your eyes
This item is awesome, no filling around to drop an internal sun shade and no painful riding with uncomfortable sunglasses under your helmet. Plus no fogging up how good is that! The tinting is really fast too and various with the sun's brightness so it is perfect at whatever light level. Love it will replace with the same when the time comes. Really simple to fit too.
Bought this as a cheaper alternative to a dark visor for my Arai Axces 2 helmet. Really pleased with it. No more struggling to locate the lever to drop the visor down! Used last week in changeable weather conditions and worked a treat!
No longer blinded by the autumn sun
Bought the ProtecTint for my new Chaser V and have to say it is brilliant. Crystal clear at night and perfect for taking the edge of the sun on bright days.
