  • Helmet fogging

    In areas where humidity runs high we all know the problem foggy visors can be, especially in a full face type.. I'm going to buy a new helmet & want to know if there's any this is not a problem with or at least is less of one.

    I got a simpson super bandit last winter and have worn it all year long and it did not fog on me at all including during the marathon at top o' it did fog a slight bit at lock haven this weekend but that was because it was 45 F out and it was from my breath

      Re: Helmet fogging

      I have always treated my helmet with Rain-X wipes on both the inside and outside, and run a Simpson bandit as well. I have never had a problem with the helmet fogging, my glasses on the other hand while testing always did. (I race wearing contacts). I did have a problem with my older Bell, and not enough circulation in the helmet even with the vents open.
      When it comes to boat racing and the wife, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is permission, and of course I spent a number of nights sleeping on the couch!

        Rain-X is the solution.

              Re: Helmet fogging

              At flying point my Pyrotec fogged up so bad I almost hit the concrete radio tower in the middle of the course
              Scared the daylights out of me
              I duct taped the black plastic cap from a sharpie magic marker to the bottom edge so the shield could not close all the way
              Looks like h*ll but has not fogged up since
              It is staying on there BTW

                Between that, partially open & rain x it will happen less but still can some. Visibility is tuff in our sport as is with spray in the turns in any weather. That's why I'm asking about a brand that tends not to fog before doing things to it.

                  Get any brand of helmet you like but get a Pinlock Fog-Resistant Lens. It works.

                    Re: Helmet fogging

                    I ran with Fog City inserts for years...They work amazing. visor closed, head through a spray eyes open and never fog. they were great.
                    a quick look at the Pinlock Fog-Resistant Lens looks to be very similar. I also tried Pro Grip inserts. They we not good for optics, but didn't fog.

                    bottomline, find a helmet that fits, but the inserts. FogCity makes insets specific for Arai and Simpson, plus a standard for most regular visors.

                      Mike- You have been given the best answers, and I will add one. If you have a scuba shop close they sell anti fog spray for mask. Use to carry all the time. Little pricey but no issues.

                        Urinate on the inside of the shield, seems to work for my buddies that I did for them, maybe someday I will try my own!

                          It's also good for the foam padding, it keeps it soft and cozy.

                        this is what I use when snowmobiling and its the ****. Its called Cat Crap look it up. Rub it on the inside of yoyur shield and buff it up after applacation. Crazy name but it works. this on the inside and rain ex on the out side.

                        HJC with a pin lock inner shield worked perfectly without any fogging at Lockhaven this weekend.
