Keeping face warm in closed helmets?

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by Kowasaki, Nov 8, 2015.

  1. Hey, just wondering what I can get to keep the wind off my face in a closed helmet, I get a lot of air flow straight up between he chin and and my face and it get's pretty cold at night.. Will a simple neo half mask work?

  2. A neck sock would help

  3. Used to wear a balaclava, but since I got my shark vision R helmet with the chin blind I haven't needed to..

  4. neck sock is good, or thin balaclava - silk is best. Neck sock can be sourced easily - bike shop or ski shop, silk balaclava will take a bit of looking for - wish list stuff.

  5. A polar fleece neckwarmer would and does the trick ......find them on ebay.....
  6. I am actually confused, your profile says you are from Hervey Bay, it don't get cold up there!!!!!!! Oh in winter I ride with thermal layers x 2 heated under shirt, heavy pants and jacket, thick neck sock, big winter gloves. heated grips and blizzard hand covers, you guys up north are soft :p

    Oh and thermal socks!!!!

  7. A neck sock would be too hot in Hervey Bay. Not sure why no one else mentioned it etiher given you specified the wind getting up under your helmet.

    Get a chin curtain for your helmet, look up your helmet manufacturer for one.

  8. I also should mention that I have an official Netrider neck-warmer, with the Netrider logo, given to me by, I'm sure Jason won't now mind me saying, Vic! It's a very treasured possession....
  9. It is usually warm up here but at night it can get a bit chilly hooking in at 100km/h for the 15 min it take me to get home haha. I'll have to see if I can source a chin curtain for my helmet, otherwise a thin tube/sock/whatever will be next choice..
  10. Grow a beard?

  11. Wear a scarf, easy. Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet. It won't escape; don't go there please.
  12. Already got that, doesn't help much haha. I usually end up licking my mustache out of boredom and then my upper lip gets cold...

  13. Yeah, this thing blocks wind quite nicely. I also use a "turtle fur" branded wool balaclava(wool neck warmer sewn onto the polyester+cotton(I think) headpiece) for winter commuting. It's a bit bulky but it keeps me warm when Melbourne weather gets especially nasty.
  14. I have a SHOEI helmet and grabbed a whisper kit .. I take it out during summer, but it helps a lot during the winter
