Shoei Transitions Visor: $199.99

If the rider in your life uses a Shoei lid, here’s your chance to upgrade their kit with a new CWR-1 Transitions shield. This shield is compatible with X-Fourteen, RF-1200, and RF-SR models and provides 100 percent UVA and UVB protection. What makes this piece really special is an array of trillions of photochromic molecules that change structure when exposed to UV light. As a result, this shield becomes darker for sun or glare and then clears in low-light conditions. This is a huge convenience for riders who stretch their ride from day into night, as they won’t need to fuss with a finicky shield swap. It’s a great piece of kit to have in changing circumstances, ensuring a clear view in all conditions.
