  • Wet Weather Riding - Iridium Visors

    Found that my iridium visor during rain fogs up and water beads on the outside restricting my vision.

    RainX type products would go along way at solving this but I was told that chems in these products eat the Iridium coatings.

    Anyone have any tips or am I limited to my clear visor in wet weather?
    Its all good on Ducati's

    An old trick is to use just a smear of washing up liquid on the inside and outside.

      put a wax on the visor?

      DO NOT USE RAINX on it.

        Look sideways when riding = The forces of the wind pushes the water droplets away

          thats what i do. helps if the visor is clean (before the rain) aswell

          do you keep the vents open when riding in the rain? i dnt have a problem with my helmet fogging you if i keep the bottom vent open.

              I don't have a problem... all my visors fog in the rain. I wear a fog off or crack the visor a tiny bit

                it sounds wierd, but smear toothpaste on the inside of the visor, wait till it's dry, then clean it off with warm water; stops the fogging cos it leaves a coat of some sht on it =)

                  a smear of cat crap inside and out works a treat.
                  Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                  when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                            Scratch the crap out of the visor. That way you get used to seeing f* all

                              after 15 years riding, with cold temps and rain, the best I found ever is the shoei system. a layer of pvc is added behind, letting a layer of air between it and the visor.
                              no foam anymore. Happy winter
                              I think it's possible to adapt the pvc layer to any helmet, even if I never tried.
