Drop-down visors: are they any good?

What are your thoughts on internal drop-down sun visors? Are they worth having? Debthehog, MCN forums The only downsides to them are that a few can become loose and rattle inside your helmet or drop down of their own accord (and if we’re honest here, we don’t think they look as cool as a tinted visor). But among our forum members...

I have a Caberg V2R Zonda, I've used it daily (sun, rain, heavy winds, snow) for just over a year and have had no problems with it. It has an internal drop down tinted visor and is extremely useful, it has saved my life a few times during times of low sun whilst riding out in the country. I however agree that it doesn't look as good as a tinted visor but it is so much more convenient as you can change from tinted to clear in an instant whilst using one hand while riding. It hasn't ever dropped down by itself and doesn't rattle at all. If I ever damage it I wouldn't hesitate to get another one :)

Sun Visors

I too have a Caberg, the sun visor is great for all the reasons you expect.  I have no rattles, it stays exactly where I put it and is superb in the sun (when we get some).

It has the slide control on the top, which may sound daft but is actually good for me!  Many helmets have a switch on the underside to the left, just where my Cardo Scala intercomm unit fits.  Worth remembering if you are in the market for either...

However, I have to say the helmet is noisy at fast cruising speed and in torrential rain it gets in behind the normal visor, but that is nothing to do with the sun visor!
