Shoei Transitions shield

Anyone have this? I have always used Dark Smoke tinted shields on my shoei full face helmets. My main concern is will it be a dark as my dark smoke on a sunny day? I will be riding Colorado next week and will probably experience a moderate amount of rain riding. So it would be nice to have the transition shield if it will be dark enough on a sunny day.

Let me know your experience please if you have one.

Is it dark enough in full sun to ride without sunglasses?

Re: Shoei Transitions shield

How much do those cost? That bothered me during the years I used a Shoei Multitec. Night riding was a tad problematic too. I love the snap-down sun visor inside my Nolan.

Re: Shoei Transitions shield

Glad my Neotec has the internal drop down visor. I've always wondered why transition tech hasn't become more widespread in motorcycle helmets.

Re: Shoei Transitions shield

Sorry for the confusion. No, I had a smoky gray face shield. If I had to ride at night, I pretty much just left it open and ate a few June bugs.

Re: Shoei Transitions shield

Not Shoei, but I have the Bell Transitions shield. In my opinion it does darken enough to use without sunglasses. I would guess it lands about halfway between light smoke and dark smoke.

Maybe we should try to work out a comparison at a M&G?

Re: Shoei Transitions shield

I have transition glasses and if that shield works like them you will want to avoid tunnels!
They donít change near as fast as the commercial s.
I have the GT air with the flip down sun shield.
I used to have a electrochromic insert that worked great.
