9. Transitions shield on my Bell Revolver Evo
Why doesn’t everybody do this? Wait, maybe they are starting to: Shoei is now offering a photochromic shield for its helmets. The bad news is the Bell shield retails for around $120, the Shoei one for about $150. Ouch.
But if you’ve been caught after dark with a dark shield repeatedly – like some of us who’ve got enough baggage to lug around without adding a clear shield to the mix – a face shield that lightens and darkens is one of the best uses of technology motorcycling has come up with in a long time, and worth the money. All Transitions products claim 100-percent UVA and UVB protection too, and the one that’s been on my Bell for the last two years still looks and works great.
