Symax II with pinlock?

I am looking hard at the Symax II to replace my aging Nolan 100 helmet. One of the features I have liked alot in the Nolan is the Pinlock insert on the shield. No fogging problems at all with it. I know HJC has Pinlock ready shields for many of their models, but I haven't been able to find out if there is, or will be, one for the Symax II. Anyone know?

This is why I love this site. Never heard of a pinlock before. Now I have and I want one. I have the Symax II (love it) so I have sent Pinlock USA a question for both of us. Their website says they only make them for HJC fullface helmets, so I've asked them if they also make one for the Symax II and, if not, if they intend to. I'll post the response when/if I get one.

It is a second, smaller shield that is held in place on the primary shield with pins installed in the primary shield. Acts like a storm window giving a dead air layer between the two shields. Works well.
