Shoei Transitions CWR-1 Photochromic Shield w/Pinlock® Pins

The Shoei Transitions CWR-1 Photochromic Shield is the perfect accessory for your Shoei Helmet. The Transitions Shield seamlessly adjusts the changing light to deliver the optimal tint level. This solves the age old problem of having to travel with both a clear and tinted shield. Bell has offered a Transitions Shield for their helmets for the past few seasons and they have proven to work well. On the surface this may seem like a lot of money for a replacement shield, trust us when we tell you it is worth EVERY PENNY!

Transitions® adaptive sunwear products have a range of light transmission levels, all optimized for the specific activity the product is designed for. Specifically, the SHOEI® Transitions® adaptive shield:

  • Fits the Shoei RF-1200 Helmet
  • Non-activated - virtually clear
  • Activated - darken to a 15% light transmission level at 72 Fahrenheit and 23 Celsius
  • Full activation in two minutes
  • Fades to 50% transmission in two minutes
  • Like all Transitions® products, the visor blocks 100% of UV rays

SHOEI® Transitions® adaptive shields are designed to meet International Standards of Performance for driving.

  • Category as per ISO 8980-3 (Non-Activated - Category 0) (Activated - Category 3)
  • Traffic Signal recognition as per ISO 14889
  • 100% protection from UVA and UVB as per ISO 8980-3
  • 100% protection from UVA and UVB as per ANSI ZB0.3
  • Impact resistant as per US FDA Impact Resistant Regulation 21 CFR 801.410
  • Impact resistant as per ANSI Z87.1
  • Impact resistant as per ISO 14889 Section 5.2

Like all photochromic products, temperature can cause fluctuation in performance. UV rays activate the photochromic molecules through a photochemical process - this makes the shield darken. The fade back reaction is actually driven by heat - so in extremely hot temperatures, the photochromic molecules are actually fading back while they are activating - this prevents the shield from fully darkening. Transitions® lens technology is the most advanced in the industry, and is the least temperature sensitive, but there will be some performance variables depending on the temperature.

Worth every penny!
Bought this for my Shoei x-fourteen helmet and I absolutely love it! Not having to worry about owning multiple visors, swapping visors and how much light I will encounter when I step outside makes this extremely convenient. The transition from clear to dark and vice-versa is smooth and quick. Worth every penny in every way. I would highly recommend!

Worth every penny
This $300 investment is one you won't regret. Not having to swap visors or worry about amount of sunlight/darkness you will encounter throughout your ride makes your ride that much more enjoyable. It adjusts to the different lighting conditions relatively quickly and is perfect in every way.

If you don't like switching visors, this $300 transition visor is worth it! I'm not one to carry a clear visor on me so this is the perfect solution. I never had any issues with the tint changing from dark to clear. I love it combined with my rf-1200.

A must get for every rider!
I know what you're thinking...$300!!!? But trust me when I say that it is worth your money. Not having to lug around a second lens is worth no amounts of money in my opinion. I love my transition shield and It has the perfect amount of tint in any lighting situation. The only thing I wish was different is that the tint doesn't go 100%'s a bit purple but very hard to notice unless you're right next to it.

Trust me it's worth it.

definite 5 star in everyway
Just when I thought the RF1200 cannot get any better here comes the photochromic shield to make it perfect. Works great tints to pitch black within 10 seconds. So better than carrying 2 shields and reduces the strain on your eyes caused by UV. Not overpriced at all cause if you compare it to photochromic lenses for regular glasses you will know the difference.
GP bikes gives you the best prices and on top of that the coupons you can use is amazing

    • My boyfriend wants a transitional visor, is that the same as a shield?
    • Yes it is the same type of visor. Do you know which Shoei helmet your boyfriend has and I can double check to make sure it will fit.

    • Will this shield fit the RF 1100?
    • This shield will not fit the RF-1100. There isn't a transition shield that I can get for that model of helmet however, if you are interested, I can get you a tinted shield for that model.
