Pinlock Insert

Review -

     I have tried so many methods of preventing a fogged shield including “space age” liquids with claims of solving fogged visors for good; the old spit method; etc etc. What I’ve found is that none of them work!

     I read an article in the British magazine, Ride, that gave ratings on a variety of products – it not only scored the insert 10/10, but also wrote that it simply works!

     I decided to splurge and buy the $20 product since my recent rainy and cool mornings were causing too much trouble with visibility on my way in to work. After easily installing the insert into a clear Pinlock-ready visor (included with my HJC FS-15 helmet), I tested it out by breathing heavily inside the helmet, by standing in a foggy and hot bathroom with the shower running.


     When something works as it is advertized – it is worthy of promoting. It simply works! Also, the insert is transferrable from shield to shield (as long as it is Pinlock ready, of course.

     I bring my clear Pinlock-prepped shield in a sock with me to protect it from scratches while I ride since I typically use a dark-tinted visor. Riding in New Orleans on a daily basis can present any type of weather condition – brief, steamy showers – heavy thunderstorms – all of which present great opportunities to use the Pinlock shield – and it always does the trick!

     Check it out – I give it a 10/10 despite the pricing simply because it does what it says. Amen.
