E-Tint: Universal Electronic Chromatic Visor Tint Insert - October 29, 2010, 09:38 PM

What do you guys think about this product? One of the biggest PITA I run into is going out during the day with my dark smoke visor on and then coming home at night.

My Oakley photocromic sunglasses work the same way, but without any electronic sensors. I love those sunglasses, and hope that in the future, Shark helmets start using a similar technology (like the Akuma Phantom II)

You can get a regular chromatic visor for $80-ish. I would just get a regular one (and I plan to.... I just never get to it.)

I didn't even notice that. It sounds like a gimmick that will probably work 1/2 as good as advertised and break twice as fast.

Check this out instead.

I think with the technology is available and it is effective. Every helmet should have the photochromatic option. Electrochromatic would not be as advantageous nor financially sound.

The technology is liquid crystal. It isn't photochromic or electrochromic. These visors are really fast, and don't really compare to photochromic.

Does it require a battery or power source outside of solar energy?
