Heated Visors
« on: July 12, 2011, 06:26:27 pm »
Hi All,

I noticed that now in Formula 1 the drivers are using electricaly heated visors during wet races.  I wonder if anyone has ever thought of developing them for everyday motorcycle use???

They are available from HJC.  They are used for snowmobiles.  I am running a non heated snowmobile version on my Symax.
It fogs considerably less than the standard, not  entirely fog free.
Well...even if you fall on your face you're still moving forward.

A fog city insert works ok, but better are the ones that are a 2d shield that attaches to your visor. 

Problem on the Conc is not so much the visor, but the lack of airflow from the windshield blocking our visor.  The  lack of movement causes fog, droplets, etc to form on the visor and not be convected or blown away.

I made a very short shield for mine.

Yep, just check snowmobile helmets. Most are DOT approved and okay for road motorcycle use. HJC, Bombardie, and others.

However unless you are regularly riding in below freezing temperatures, a simple FogCity shield insert will alleviate most helmet shield fogging.
