Pinlock for Nexx XR1R - Seattle Concours Guy WA
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Ease of installation, no degradation of optics
Cons: Very minor 'line' around seal. Details in review.
If you are looking for a defog solution that really works this is it. I am a daily commuter in Seattle so I know what it's like to ride in wet and cold conditions where visor fogging is a constant problem. Conditions in Seattle are crappy often so I have been looking for a good way to control fogging for a long time. Some chemical defog solutions work but they aren't permanent. After installing the Pinlock you'll never need to worry about it again. I was really surprised at how well this system works. My understanding is that Europeans have been using it for decades so I'm surprised it isn't more commonly used in the states.I no longer need to crack the visor based on speed or hold my breath at stoplights. I shut it and leave it. The only time I crack it is for cooling. On my helmet, installation took less than 10 minutes and that includes removing and reinstalling the visor. The caveat to this is that Nexx helmets come predrilled for the inner visor pins. Helmets that don't have a predrilled outer visor will need to be replaced or drilled.The only very minor drawback to this system is the inner visor is by necessity, smaller than the outer. There is a line around the seal where the two surfaces meet. It is not a distraction nor does it effect the field of vision but if you look you'll see it. I don't really even notice it anymore.I strongly recommend the Pinlock visor for those who ride in colder conditions. It will keep you warmer and most importantly keep your visor clear. For my set up at least, it really delivers.
