Shoei CW-1 Faceshield The new Shoei CW-1 Visor / face shield fits Shoei Qwest, RF-1100 and X-12 Helmets Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back into contact with the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional racing shields with tear-off posts are available Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Note Mellow Smoke refers to a tint that is lighter than the Light Smoke shield.

Purchased the dark tint for track day use and it blocks out most of the penetration. Keeps my face cool and keeps the glare away from my eyes. Furthermore, as I wear glasses, the vision out is not distorted. Highly recommended and will be shopping with Revzilla again soon!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am from South Africa and purchased this helmet through Revzilla for the first time. Received the delivery on the 7th calendar day! Talk about efficiency! Revzilla, you rock!
Anyway, the fit and finish was as expected, the visor was easy to operate and clean, the ventilation was more than I could ask for and the noise was very well controlled after some front vents / rear exhausts combination. The whistling noise actually stopped if the chin vent was closed but I always wear customised ear plugs so no worries there.
I wear glasses and love my communication set and have been wearing only flip-up helmets as a result. However, the RF1100 is the only full-face helmet that I have tried so far that allows me to put on my glasses with ease. The ear pocket is ample for speaker installation and detachable liners help to make the installation easier.
It also fits my slightly round head perfectly! No pressure point to be felt anywhere. The cheek pads are snug but sense of security is created. Been to the track with it and fit was so good i nearly forgot that I was wearing a helmet!
Overall, i believe that this is money very well spent! Don't just believe what I said, try it for yourself!
Yes, I recommend this product.
