We Love Arai helmets but they fogged up when it was really humid or cold and damp. So, we tried the original Pin-lock shield with a couple of inserts and it solved the fogging issues but the insert obscured part of the visible area when in the tuck position the insert gasket was directly in the sight-line ( the packaging warned of this ). Along came the new Arai Max Vision Pin-lock. So we had to try it out. We tested one with a couple of inserts and the first thing we noticed was that the shield is not flat like the old style. The Max Vision Pin-lock face shield has an outward bulge that is the same shape of the insert. The inserts fit perfectly into this bulge and rather than having slots that fit into the pins, they have tabs that the pins hold down. The inside of the shield is not flat when the insert is in stalled vs. raised and bulging in the original version pinlock faceshield. When using the new Max vision system you get to use the larger opening in the SAI shield. The Pinlock no longer obscures your vision, even in the tuck position. The insert is shaped around the brow vents too. In fact what we were most pleased with is the faceshield is designed so well that you will forget you are using a Pin-lock shield. Now, fogging up is no longer an issue. Plus, when using the Arai the Max vision faceshield you have the full use of the larger eyeport opening on the newer Arai Helmets. Get yours today and get all the advantages of a Pinlock, but now with a lot more visibility.
The anti-fog insert lens is positioned in a special original SAI Arai cavity shield; the size of the insert lens can be increased to the maximum without disturbing edges. Improves your view on the road.

Pros: Product actually works as advertised, really wide, tall field of clear vision
Cons: Shouldn't these be on every Arai helmet
Anyone who's ever worn a helmet in the rain knows that you either anti-fog, or you don't see. While there are lots of ways to anti-fog, the best way is to not have to in the first place. If your face shield is anti-fog, you don't have to worry about whether you treated it or not, or whether you put the anti-fog in your pocket before you left. That's why this product rocks so hard. It flatly works. Unless you're a mouth-breathing troglodyte, you won't fog this. The combination of pinlock pocket and silicon seal works to provide a clear, fog-free view that will last a couple of rainy seasons of daily use ask me how I know. Another plus this new design puts the edges of the anti-fog area outside the seals for the eyeports, so your view is unrestricted. Nice The only drawback this doesn't come standard on every Arai helmet. It really should. They're one of the safest helmets on the market, so why doesn't this vital piece of safety equipment come standard on every helmet they sell Don't know, but if yours didn't come with one of these, you need to get one -- before you need it and don't have it. Don't delay, buy today
