Colour Options

Clear Insert

This clear insert is now being supplied with the helmet as standard by most helmet manufacturers. This insert offers you clear and fog free vision under normal weather conditions.

Dark Tint Insert

If the sun will be shining at full force, the time has come to equip your visor with the dark smoke insert. This insert provides excellent protection against the most brilliant of sunshine.


Photochromic inserts tint under the effect of UV light. As the UV light becomes stronger, the insert will tint darker. This means that the Pinlock insert tints from clear to smoke and vice versa under the effect of the UV light. Just perfect during a journey with different weather conditions. Continuously changing inserts will also be a thing of the past.

The photochromic material will be activated immediately because of UV light and this means that the insert will have a darker color. This offers perfect vision on the road even when you are riding in full sunshine. The insert will not catch UV light at night meaning the insert will be clear under these conditions. A perfect advantage because you will only need to take one shield with you!

Please be advised, as the ProtecTINT insert reacts to UV light strength and current weather conditions, during the winter months or when the UV strength is lower, the insert may not react as fast and tint to it's full capacity.

As shown in the images below, the Pinlock insert is manufactured out of a unique special moisture absorbing plastic, which helps make Pinlock the worlds number one anti-fog solution for motorcycle helmets.
