PostSubject: Helmet sun visor   Sun 28 Aug 2011, 11:07

This is one addition that I think is fantastic, looks great and really works.
Just google (The Super-Visor http://www.helmetheadcycle.com/product/15/super-visor-helmet-sun-shield ) cost is only about $25.00


The Super-Visor offers a completely different concept in motorcycle safety. Being blinded by the sun is potentially one of the most dangerous situations you can face as a rider. With the Super-Visor, that danger is alleviated with a slight tilt of the head. Clear vision is renewed, and safety and discomfort are maintained.

The Super-Visor was developed as a simple, low cost solution to a dangerous riding situation. Priced to allow all riders to enjoy its benefits, the Super-Visor is a sun blocking visor for all full-face and open-face helmets with a face shield.

Digitally engineered in DOT approved plastic, the Super-Visor's aerodynamic style will actually improve the look of most helmets and quiets wind noise from your helmet.

Features
•Allows you to ride safely into the sun.
•Stylish, aerodynamic and vented.
•Fits all full-face and open-face helmets with a face shield.
•Latest design upgrades introduced.
•Mounting height is now adjustable.
•Removable from face shield.

Wow, $16 for 50 cents worth of window tint.
The visor sticks on with 2 way tape, really? Thats not going to lift right off is it!
Another rip off product for the ignorant mass's.

Seriously, do you work for them, or have some vested interest?

This should be filed under SPAM SPAM SPAM EGGS HAM AND SPAM

I fitted a Super-Visor to my Schuberth J1 a couple of years ago using velcro tape instead of sanding down my visor and using the adhesive, and Tagg you're wrong mate it's still there, even a flying Givi shield didn't shift it. It blocks direct sun in the same way as pulling down a car sun visor does. It's worth every cent and I'd recommend one to everyone. The drop down helmet sun visor inside my helmet, plus sunglasses doesn't allow me to ride into direct, low, or winter sun the way the Super-Visor does. I thought y'all in the States used them already, I bet there's one member going to say he's had one from the days they made them in Bakelite! Smile

I did not even have to sand down the visor. All I did was clip on the visor clips and that was all. One year now and the visor has not moved. One word of caution though. Be careful not to pop open the visor going fast, as the visor acts like a scope and will try and pull your head off. (I found out the hard way)

Another option could be ORIGINAL Helmet Sunblocker Sun Shield ( http://www.helmetheadcycle.com/product/1/the-original-helmet-sunblocker-sun-shield-visor-universal )

Well, after reading meldrew's post, I've just ordered one. Thanks for the heads up. I often have to go out early morning and the low sun is bloody dangerous. I've tried using a helmet with a built in, slide down tinted visor, plus photo chromic lens in my glasses, but a low sun still blinds me.

My solution to this problem was to stick a piece of window cling film (about 1" wide) across the full width of the visor. The film I used is opaque with very small holes in it. Use a piece either side of the visor (inside and outside) and you can make it totally opaque. When you don't need it just peel it off, no damage / marks on the visor. If it gets blown off then I stick a another piece on. This is the stuff off ebay

Or, if you're not squeemish about leaving marks on your visor, a line or two
of black electrical tape at the top of the visor works well for me. Not readily removable and replaceable of course, but it doesn't blow away like the "official" stick on/removable one did, and it costs nothing (assuming you have a roll of tape around). Can't say how it compares to the Super-Visor.

To get rid of any glue left over when you remove the tape try 'Sticky Stuff Remover'. It is citrus based. One of the many uses I have it for is removing the gluey bits that plasters leave on your skin. Just squirt some on a paper towel.
No idea if available in USA - try ebay - usually a good place to start.

No No No. Some of you are not getting the right product here. If when clicking on that website, go to the Super-visor helmet sun shield and it sells for 16.95 plus shipping. Not the plastic stuff that goes on to the shield itself. That stuff does not work.

Another possible solution is to use a 1.5-2.0" wide strip of blue painters tape on the face shield, near the top of the shield. It provides the same effect as a visor on a cap, or the SuperVisor.

The blue painters tape peels off without leaving any residue. If you prefer it to be black, use a magic marker.

About $20 cheaper than the SuperVisor for USA riders, and apparently about $29 cheaper for the UK riders. No waiting for delivery.

I suppose you can use any tape you think will do the job but it's a poor substitute for the Super-Visor itself. Having what we in the UK call a peak on my helmet makes such a difference that I now wouldn't like to wear a helmet without one. On quite a few occasions I have to ride from the East coast to my home near the West coast, and it's been a pretty miserable experience squinting into the sun. A dark visor and or sunglasses are useless and of course I've tried the cheapskate tape and stick on film too, they're not that much better than riding along with your left hand acting as a shield. As for the cost of a Super-Visor, it's peanuts in comparison to all the Dr Pulley stuff everyone regards as essential kit, and as I said in my earlier post it's worth every cent.
