The fact is the price is as marked and it performs as advertised and happens to be somewhat better than other options. And since it can be paired with many helmets it's easy to keep the total cost down when buying a new helmet.
I'd like it if they were able to integrate some form of polarization as well.
This is a great product but a bit pricy.
I leave for work before light and head home in bright sun. I was changing shields or just putting up with the sun; this shield is a great problem solver.
The only thing I would complain about is the price. At $120 it's a bit overpriced. IMHO the price point should be in the $60-$75 range. If it were a better value for the dollar, they would be very popular.
A bunch of people ask me about it and are very interested until we get to the price. As soon as they get the $120 figure they say "never mind" or "I can't believe you paid that much for a shield"
