Shoei® Transitions® adaptive motorcycle shields seamlessly self-adjust from clear to dark and back again with changing light conditions for enhanced visual performance throughout your ride. Whether dominating the race track or out for a pleasure ride, motorcyclists know how important clear, crisp vision is. Traditionally, riders dealt with changing light conditions by carrying two shields (one clear, one tinted) with them at all times. Shoei® Transitions® adaptive shields solve this problem – and even enhance vision – by seamlessly adjusting to optimized darkness levels with the changing light.
Transitions® adaptive sunwear products have a range of light transmission levels, all optimized for the specific activity the product is designed for. Specifically, the Shoei® Transitions® adaptive shield:
- Non-activated – virtually clear.
- Activated – darken to a 15% light transmission level at 72° Fahrenheit and 23° Celsius.
- Full activation in two minutes.
- Fades to 50% transmission in two minutes.
- Like all Transitions® products, the shield blocks 100% of UV rays.
Like all photochromic products, temperature can cause fluctuation in performance. UV rays activate the photochromic molecules through a photochemical process – this makes the shield darken. The fade back reaction is actually driven by heat – so in extremely hot temperatures, the photochromic molecules are actually fading back while they are activating – this prevents the shield from fully darkening. Transitions® lens technology is the most advanced in the industry, and is the least temperature sensitive, but there will be some performance variables depending on the temperature.
Shoei® Transitions® adaptive shields are designed to meet International Standards of Performance for driving.
