Clear Shot Lens Cleaning Kit | MC TESTED

NEW PRODUCT REVIEW: We test a handy lens cleaning kit for the road.

Nothing cleans a face shield quite like a quality cleaner and a microfiber cloth. We keep those supplies handy in the garage, but what about out on the road? That’s where the Clear Shot lens cleaning kit comes in. It packages all the necessary items in one convenient container. The sturdy plastic case has water-resistant rubber caps, beneath which you’ll find a 1-ounce bottle of cleaner and two microfiber cleaning cloths—a thick, heavier blue cloth for grime and a thin, lighter white cloth for polishing. The cleaner is a non-toxic, biodegradable, non-streaking solution with mild antifog properties that’s said to be safe on all common face shield, glasses, and goggle materials.

I picked up a Clear Shot kit prior to spending a week dual-sport riding in Alaska, and I’m glad I did. Alaska will coat your face shield in bugs, dust, and grime in a matter of miles, and I ended up reaching for my Clear Shot kit nearly every time I stopped. The kit measures about 5 x 3 x 1.5 inches, so it fits easily in a tank bag or jacket pocket. I kept mine in the latter so it was always close at hand. I used the blue cloth to swab bugs and grit from the shield—turning it frequently to expose clean material—and then finished the process with the white cloth. At the end of most days I’d wash the cloths in a sink so they’d be ready for another day’s work.
