Pinlock Overlay

THE TECHNOLOGY

Right from the start, the Pinlock engineers eliminated possible weaknesses: the Overlay doesn’t use a vulnerable coating on the outside, but a UV-sensitive photochromatic film sandwiched between two premium quality polycarbonate layers. These layers are treated with a special anti-scratch coating without any UV-blockers. The Overlay is mounted on the specially developed Pinlock Tear-Off Pins (included), that accommodate both the Overlay on the outside and the Pinlock® anti-fog insert lens on the inside of the visor. This concept offers the best of both worlds: perfect anti-fog and anti-glare properties.

FAQ

HOW IS THE OVERLAY MOUNTED?

The Overlay is mounted on the outside of the original visor on Pinlock® Tear-Off Pins, on which both the Overlay and the Pinlock® insert lens may be mounted. The Pinlock Tear-Off Pins are included with the Overlay.

HOW DOES THE OVERLAY FUNCTION?

A special photochromatic lm that reacts to UV-light is sandwiched between two polycarbonate layers. This makes the Overlay much less vulnerable and resistant to cleaning. This technology is patented by Pinlock®.

HOW FAST DOES THE OVERLAY REACT?

The color of the visor changes under the influence of UV-light from clear to dark in a matter of seconds. Back to clear takes a little while longer, but this offers your eyes the time to adapt to the color change.

DOES IT FIT MY HELMET?

Please refer to the model list to inspect of the Overlay is suited for a particular helmet brand and model. More versions are to be introduced soon, just as 3D models.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

1 Sun Reactive Overlay / 1 set of Pinlock Tear-Off Pins / 1 Pintool to easily install the Tear-Off Pins

IS THE OVERLAY SUITABLE FOR ALL WEATHER TYPES?

The Overlay performs in all weather conditions, but we recommend removing the Overlay when riding in wet conditions.

CAN I USE AN OVERLAY AND ANTI FOG LENS AT THE SAME TIME?

The Overlay is mounted on Pinlock® Tear-Off Pins, that accommodate both the Overlay on the outside and the Pinlock® anti-fog insert lens on the inside of the visor. This concept offers the best of both worlds: perfect anti-fog and anti-glare properties.

WHAT IS A 2D VISOR?

A 2D visor is bent in 2 dimensions, from left to right. The line from the top to the bottom runs straight.

CAN WE EXPECT MORE FROM PINLOCK?

We never stop developing new products at Pinlock. For the Overlay we shortly want to offer a 3D version and we’re working on an Overlay with different color characteristics.
