Biltwell Adds Pinlock Anti-Fog and Light Control Tech to Helmet Shields

Temecula, California based Biltwell has added new Pinlock ProtecTINT equipped shields for its Lane Splitter and Gringo S helmets.

"These shields combine rugged materials and advanced optic technologies to improve vision in a wide range of riding conditions," says Biltwell CEO and co-founder Bill Bryant.

"In sunshine, the advanced photochromic Pinlock ProtecTINT lens changes to light smoke in seconds to dramatically reduce glare. ProtecTINT returns to clear at night-time and in low-light conditions.

"While in wet weather and high humidity, Pinlock’s famed and patented Dry Hydrophilic lens technology absorbs and holds moisture, so you can see virtually fog-free. Pinlock technology is internationally respected for its anti-fog properties and is an award-winning technology that is usually associated with top-of-the-line helmets from leading brands."

Pinlock's photochromic coatings are equally top-end in terms of their durability and response times.
