Dual Pane Visors really work!



Got my first dual pane visor with my new Bell helmet and used it over the weekend in temperatures ranging from 8C to 0C/46F to 32F. This is the first time I have ever ridden in cool temperatures and not experienced heavy fogging. Even stopped at traffic lights, with no air flow through the helmet, I did not experience any fogging and did not need to raise the visor at traffic lights. Did not bother to install the optional cold weather breath deflector as it was not needed.

While I have found anti fog spray some what helpful in the past, I would not really consider it a solution to fogging. The dual pane visor is the first totlally effective solution I have tried. While I have the Bell dual pane visor, Fog City/Pin Lock also make dual pane inserts for about ~$18. I'm really surprised these are not more popular as the dual pane concept really works and the price is relatively cheap.

I would never buy another helmet without a pinlock visor. Its the only thing that really works.
The thing that kills me is that you can buy an HJC $130 helmet that comes with a pinlock visor but you buy a $600 Arai or Shoei and they want to gouge you another $60 for a visor. What a joke for two little extra plastic pins. That's why I won't buy one of those on principal.

I got a pinlock on an HJC last year. It really does work, and you need it to around here in Spring and Fall!

I installed a fog city in my old helmet and it was a waste. It didn't fog, but was not clear. I hated it.
Bought a new helmet this spring with Pinlock, and it is awesome! I can close the shield and breathe real hard. The outer arw a will fog but nothing on the "seeing" area.
I will never buy another helmet without pinlock.

I only got to try the Pin Lock a couple of time in my new HJC but it works. Only thing is MY glasses still fog up without air flow. I need Pin Locks for my glasses! That's the ticket!

I just picked up a little tub of an old fog remedy for really cold weather, "cat crap". It worked great for skiing, thought I'd try it on the bike.. Anyone know of any really bad downside I should know before smearing this stuff all over my shield?

Other than the obvious smell and relative opacity of cat crap? :stickpoke:

Did you pick up out of the litter box? Or do you carry a cat so you have a "Fresh' supply? :p
I sell the stuff at work, and the box that sits on the counter holding the small containers you buy is called the "Litter Box"

Im personally not a huge fan of it. I wouldn't want to use it personally. It destroys factory coatings, but doesn't last nearly as long as them.

My Nolan N90 was the first helmet with a pin lock shield. Got my Nolan N104 in today will not put the pin lock shield in until the weather turns cold.

My Shoei Neotec came with a Pinlock visor.
