Customer Product Reviews
Another seamless transaction with Sporsbikeshop. For £5 more I could have had it fitted at my local bike shop, but my choice to do it this way. Had to phone up and, as usual, straight through to a helpful person with a minimum of delay.
Required all year round to stop me visor fogging up. Great customer service and excellent delivery time. Came next day. Keep up the great work peeps in these strange world times
There are nice to have things, "glad I bought that" things, bits of bling and items that are absolutely essential. In my view ( excuse the pun), a pinlock visor is one of them. No matter how good your brakes or your reactions, you still need to see what's going on. As we go into cooler weather, fogged visors will become an issue for most riders and the pinlock is the best if not only real answer. It's a truly essential bit of kit!
Effective, but delicate
The pinlock is great for preventing fogging, but they are so delicate that even a gentle wipe with anything but the softest, clean microfibre cloth can scratch them. This is across all pinlock inserts though - not specific to this particular one. Highly recommend getting one, and treating it with great care when it arrives. Excellent service from SBS - as always.
I can see again...
After 8 years on my Shoei XR1100 there was a time to replace my Pinlock insert as the one I had was scratched and lost its transparency. The new one ordered from Sportbikeshop arrived quickly in the post and after easy installation - I couldn't believe the change in front of my eyes! What a nice clear vision! Amazing! Plus, looks like it's a new model called EVO, It fits the visor perfectly! The anti-fog capabilities - even on the old model - were impressive. I don't expect anything else from this new one. Highly recommended!
These work remarkably well. They are though very tender and care is needed handling them. My pinlock that i bought from sports bike i dropped it fell down the back of a radiator at home. After retrieval is was useless covered in micro scratches. My second purchase is in my helmet and working well.
