"For those of you who wear full face helmets or helmets with face shields there is a simple fix for blindness caused by riding into the sun. Place about a 2 inch strip of material similar to that used for making car windows dark at the bottom of your visor. Now when you're riding into the sun you can move your visor up until it is in the way of the sun's disk and then either look through the darkened area or under it or over it, depending on how high the sun is in the sky. If that's not dark enough for you just ad another strip over the top of the first one. I've ridden thousands of miles with mine and it works great. The main reason I like this over a tinted visor is that I don't have to change visor's to ride at night. Just make sure the darkened area is out of your vision when it's dark out."


No, this isnt me, but thought it was kind of an interesting concept ?

seems to me a tinted shield would be the easier way to go..but i can see the point I suppose, especially if u ride alot at dusk or so when the sun is going down and u dont want a tinted shield on at nite. ?

My eyes are very sensitive so I use a tinted visor, sunglasses and the sunblocker. Although I haven't got one for my new helmet and I really needed it on the last trip I took.

I think its like a sticker like material. Thats what it looks like and the details make it sound like. :)

It's a little more permanent than a static sticker. You need to get it wet, move it to where you want it and then leave it over night. It stays on really well even during cleanings. When you want to take it off and move it to another visor, it comes right off and then you can put it on the new visor.

I have tried another type that actually slids in between the inner padding and the visor opening of the helmet. It stays in place even when you move the visor up and down. It worked just as good but didn't have as much surface area for defusing the sun.

Does anybody remember the cars from the late 40's-early 50's with the large sun visors above the windshield, on the outside of the car? Here is a sun visor for motorcycle helmets. http://www.super-visor.com/ It was rated 4 out of 5, but they took off a point because it looks dorky. But it supposedly works great. Out west, that setting sun can really blind you. For only $20, I am going to order one.
