An optically correct shield means there’s very little visual distortion when you look through your shield. Most shields are pretty good to be honest – I don’t think many of us are too troubled by distortion when we’re riding. But if you look carefully, you can probably make out a little wobble or two when you move your head about. With an optically correct shield, there shouldn’t be a wobble at all – everything should look the same whether your shield’s up or down. Having an optically correct shield starts to become important when you’re on the track, so you’ll probably find most crash helmets that come with an optically correct shield are sportsbike and racing-focused.

On this page, you’ll find motorcycle helmets that are advertised as coming with an optically-correct shield (or have one available for it).
