Genuine Or Aftermarket Visor?

Hi everyone

I'm getting a dark smoked visor soon.

Aftermarket visor - £24.99
Genuine - £39.99

Anyone had any experiences with copy visors?

dark smoked visor

genuine or copy i do not recommend either,been there done it and proved costly.

In my case it affected the depth of vision,

you need maximum CLEAR vision today with all the d*ckheads on the roads,more so with vehicles with flashers/indicators surrounded with brake lights.

Visors are outrageously expensive. That said, I like iridium visors in certain circumstances, particularly dazzling low sun. (Cara Coat in particular, although you can't get them anymore.) They take away the dazzle but don't just dim the light like a smoked visor. They feel enhancing, a bit like polarized sunglasses. The finish is fragile though.

I'm tempted to try a yellow-tinted visor. The eye is particularly sensitive to yellow light apparently, so these visors are said to enhance vision, especially in mist and fog.

Ok, I currently use a clear visor on my Shoei Qwest, and I am in desperate need of some protection, it's dangerous because I can't see far enough ahead because of glare and squinting. Specially at the times I go to and from work with the sun directly in front of me and reflecting off the sea, it affects my concentration too much. 

Sunglasses are no good, impractical and usually fog up. My lid doesn't have a flip down sun visor, so there is only one way out of this... A smoked visor 

It may be expensive, but I need something.

I buy OE visors as the quality is much better. It is often a false economy buying cheaper ones as they do not last as well.

Whether I use a clear or dark visor I always carry the alternative with me as you never know when conditions may change.
