Lighting conditions during a ride change fast, your visor should too. Now you may experience instant rider-controlled tint and eliminate the need to wear sunglasses or carry extra visors. With the e-Tint® motorcycle visor insert, your helmet visor will change instantly with the quick touch of a button. Safety features include a "fail safe" mechanism which allows the insert to default to clear in the event of a power failure. Our superior anti-fog coating is enhanced by the thermal qualities of the double lens and serves for all conditions riding. In addition, the e-Tint® visor insert is fully rechargeable via USB.

What is E-Tint?
E-Tint® technology uses a guest-host mixture consisting of "guest" dichroic dyes (developed and synthesized by AlphaMicron) in a liquid crystal "host". Certain dyes will allow a change in either the absorbance, color, or both. This mixture is sandwiched between two curved flexible plastic substrates coated with transparent electrodes. By applying voltage to the substrates, the electro-optic response of the liquid crystal is used to control the transmissivity and the color of the device. The voltage can be applied manually with a touch of a button or automatically through a sensor, providing instantaneous control over the tint of the eyewear.

The visor insert provides the highest commercial anti-fog protection. Enhanced by the thermal quality of the double lens, the optical film provides exceptional clarity in cold climate conditions without the need for additional anti-fog layer films.

The MX-8 visor insert installs into your faceshield easily with no tools. Two vinyl installation templates are included with the product so you may correctly position and center the insert on your faceshield. The insert is constructed with a double-sided adhesive foam gasket and once mounted it is intended to be permanent. The electronics module includes an adhesive backing and mounts to the side of the faceshield. The electronics module simply plugs into the insert with an included wire. Once correctly assembled, you may have instant tint with the touch of a button.

Electronic Driver
Liquid crystals are capacitive systems and consume low power for operation. AlphaMicron's custom electronic driver is designed to operate in the manual mode with a touch of a button, delivering low voltage to the lens substrates for instantaneous tint. This driver is powered by a rechargeable battery to provide hours of continuous operation. A micro USB cable connects the driver to a laptop or an external charger to recharge the high-capacity lithium polymer battery.
