Shoei CX1 Pinlock anti-fog inserts clip between two adjustable eccentric pins located in your helmet visor, these inserts can be easily swapped over depending on your riding needs. The Shoei CX1 Pinlock insert is made of a moisture absorbing plastic and the silicone seal on the Pinlock insert ensures there is an insulating air layer between the Pinlock insert and the visor. Both these combinations make Pinlock the worlds number one anti-fog product.

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.
Light Tint Insert
If the sun is shining with partially cloudy skies, the light smoke is the perfect insert. This lightly tinted insert offers comfortable vision under these 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.
If it will be heavily cloudy or the weather conditions will be changing, an insert with more contrast is the right solution. The yellow Pinlock insert is excellent for misty and rainy weather.
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.
