Shoei has teamed up with Transitions Optical, the industry leader of photochromic technology to produce a self-tinting shield of their own for the RF-1200 helmets.
Tinted on the left, clear on the right.
What's great about the Shoei Photochromic shield other than the fact that it is Pinlock ready, is that it is designed to meet industry standard impact resistance. Unlike other transition shields, the Shoei Photochromic transition shield will better handle road debris chucked at your face.
Shoei's Photochromic Transition shield got just as dark as their dark smoke shield with just 23% light transmission in under two minutes time. This means that by the time you walk out to your bike, put your helmet and gloves on, your new shield will have already adapted to the current light conditions.
Can you tell which one is the Photochromic shield and which is the standard dark smoke shield?
No longer will you have to carry a second shield with you or worry about making it home in time before the sun goes down. Order the Shoei Photochromic transition shield from Riders Discount today!
