PostSubject: Fogging visor   Fogging visor I_icon_minitimeWed Nov 30, 2011 12:45 am

Its getting consistently colder where I live and within the last week I'm starting to have visor fogging. I've been riding with my visor cracked open a bit just to keep it clear, but it's noisy and my face gets pretty cold and winter is just starting. I need a good solution to keep my visor from fogging.

After doing searches on some of the major motorcycle retailers websites I've concluded that there are two major categories - treatments to apply to the visor, or inserts attached to the visor. I'd rather use a treatment if possible because I don't like the ripple I see when looking through an insert (just looked through one at the store - didn't buy one). I'll consider both options however.

What things have worked for you guys? I live in Northern Callifornia and I know a lot of you live in much colder places. I need to benefit from your experiences. Thanks!

I use a pinlock insert in my HJC helmet shield which works pretty well, and i use an anti-fog called Kleer Vu on my glasses every few days and so far so good. I have done a few sub-freezing rides this year with no problems.

got pinlock on my arai helmet and is great piece of kit

you can either buy the visor with the pins already done if its a popular helmet or buy the pinlock kit to do most visors
then interchange the pinlock insert to suit
as have different types likes of smoked, clear,dark tint etc

got few things that apply to the visor itslef but still prefer the pinlock

but on a budget
apprently if you use a very small washing up liquid
and rub this in with a soft cloth till it goes clear
never tried myself personally but will one day Smile

As I recall the key with liquid soap was the glycerin level. In the US ( if I remember correctly ) certain Dawn liquid soap had higher amounts.

One thing to note from the website "NOTE: The Foggy® Breathguard cannot be used with full face helmets that flip up at the front.".

Pinlock gets my vote, mine has always remained clear. (UK = Wind, rain, mist, fog, cold - and thats the summertime, in winter it is much worse!)

Cheers,

They actually can be used with flip front helmets. Just have to test fit the piece to determine velcro locations and then place the velcro so that the installation does not interfere with opening the helmet.

I had something similar that was designed to fit in my previous HJC helmet, but it couldn't be worn together with glasses.

I've got a 'standard', I guess, full face helmet ("GMax" to be exact). The only time I have any real problem is on a colder day (of course) and I'm not going any appreciable speed or have just stopped for whatever reason. Usually cracking the flipup visor open just a bit takes care of any fogging and when I'm up to speed, say 30mph on up, I don't have any problem at all (perhaps my helmet venting has some affect on that). Lucky?? Guess so. Keeping the visor clean with "Pledge" or some such item is all I've ever done. Good Luck.

Is this available stateside, and if so from whom?

It do get cold enough in North Florida to need one (we're expecting our 2nd freeze of the season tonight), and the humidity is ALWAYS high. I've lived here for over 40 years and I can't recall ever seeing it below 25-30%. We can fog a shield if the temp drops below 70F.
