As the days get shorter and evenings and mornings get darker, this might be the right time for you to consider investing in a light-adjusting photochromic shield for your Shoei RF-1200 helmet.

Made for Shoei by Transitions®, the world’s leading photochromic technology innovator and lens manufacturer, the Shoei Transitions shield smoothly adjusts to changing light situations automatically. It’s a dark smoke and a clear shield in one, plus the whole spectrum of tint in between, so you’re always riding with the optimum level of light for the circumstance. In full sun, it can take as little as 10 seconds for the shield to change from its clearest to its darkest tint.

The Transitions shield eliminates the need to carry different face shields for night and day riding, and makes it safer to move from the glaring sun of open terrain to the darkness of a tree-lined mountain road with a single shield. The Shoei Transitions shield is currently only available as a Shoei CWR-1 face shield to fit the RF-1200 and costs $169.99.

Transitions shields have been on helmets now for a number of years, introduced into use first by Bell Helmets, and since then any initial skepticism about the durability or effectiveness of the technology has been replaced by overwhelmingly positive reviews. The Transitions shield is certainly pricey, but if you regularly ride in the early mornings, evenings, and in otherwise variable light conditions, the convenience and safety afforded by the photochromic shield may prove invaluable to you, as it has for other riders.

Also Available: Transitions Photochromic Shields for Bell Helmets

The Transitions SOLFX shield is also available at Road Rider for all current full-face Bell helmets with ClickRelease shields. The Bell Transitions shield is $119.95.
