yea, i have one for my scorpion helmet ... it was ok. it tints up, but really not that much. i wish it would have tinted up more. also, i don't understand how, but all of a sudden it stopped working! weird @ss t ... it just doesn't tint up anymore, its just a normal clear lens now.

i wouldn't buy another one ... Im just gonna buy a separate tinted visor.

I'm the same way... the ones that change don't get nearly as dark as I'd like

That's what I've heard that they will just stop working and the tints not dark enough. I saw one of the moto mags gave props to one maker a few months back but I cant find that issue again.

I belive you're thinking of the review of Wiki helmets. Can't remember the mag though.

Yup.. You're right.. I just looked on their site under reviews, it won a MOTY for "Best New Product" in Motorcyclist Mag.. That's where I saw it.

The problem is that PhotoC visors use algae to change tint. They really only work when its cool and sunny, wont work when hot as **** and sunny.

Scorpion and Gmax are working with Wiki Designs to create a PhotoC visor that doesnt use algae. The life span will be much greater and wit will get much darker in hot weather.
