are there uv protective visors?

  1. I'm just wandering if there was uv protective visors? I can't get use to the weird feeling of sunglass's under my helmet

  2. AFAIK most UV rays are blocked by the visor. Not sure all types are equally blocked though.

    Personally, I love sunnies under a clear visor - best of both worlds - and can leave the visor snibbed open withOUT the wind in the eyes.
  3. Some brands of helmet advertise uv proof visors in either clear or tint. I know Nolan does.
  4. I am often burnt through my visor in the warmer months, so wear sunscreen even if you are in your helmet. Have you looked at tinted visors?
  5. Sure are...

    I have a HJC helmet and I have a clear visor and a tinted visor.

    Both protect from UV actually, just one is tinted also.

    Sometimes I ride with tinted visor and sunnies :wink:
  6. My tinted Shoei visor is UV protective.
  7. Glad to see I'm not the only one :grin:
    altho' its not too good when one forgets to pack the clear visor & stays out too late .....

    Ditto to having the sunnies on when opening the visor, am always appalled at the amount of airborne dust that can get into your eyes - let alone the bugs!
  8. Take your sunnies and helmet to an Optometrist and seeif they can adjust your glasses so they sit better with your helmet on! :grin: Most will do it for free!
