Pinlock

I'm new to this whole antifog/pinlock concept. When and where don't you use your Pinlock lens?

Have fun,
Jer

Re: Pinlock

I have the C3 Schuberth.

It always stays on.

Never comes off.

the internal lens has a piece of silicon / rubber that creates a seal and when I tried to reuse the inner shield the rubber / silicon was unusable so I had to order a new inner shield.

With that being said I believe that the inner shield should always be on..

Just my .02 cents..

Re: Pinlock

I only use mine if temps are below 50 degrees which around these parts is about 2 weeks out of the year.

Re: Pinlock

Good information regionally. Hmmmm I should have put this in Midwest. But then again, I committed the bmwlt sin of not doing a search first. Do we have a pin (no pun intended) for that?

Have fun,
Jer

Re: Pinlock

It is not to for night use. Restricts vision and creates halos!
