Anti-fog visors?

Well.... I'm impressed!

I bought a new AGV Skyline at the London bike show sunday.. "it has an anti-fog visor" the guy said... Right-ho!! I've never had a visor that doesn't fog up...

Well I have now... And it's f*cking awesome, this morning it was rainy and cold at 5am but the visor was clear, I even tried to fog it up by coughing and heavy breathing.... Nothing!

Well happy, So how do they work? Is it the visor material, or some kind of shield sprayed/stuck on? ..Will it last some time/forever do you think??

Happy days tho!!    :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

cool aint they! :)

but to answer your question.. theres a few ways they can do it.. they can either lay a film after manufacture... or apply a spray both of which act as a 'hydrophobic barrier' as the fog we see on visors is basically very small amounts of moisture that coagulate and form miniscule water drops that to the human eye appear as 'fog'  the treatment stop the small beads from forming so reduce the fogging effect!! i do believe that certain plastics can have the treatment built into them so it kind of excretes the anti fog as and when its needed... all this technology was originally developed by NASA for their astronauts helmets...

Cheers Blader..

..And yep, really cool!

Only reason I'm asking is whether or not it will start to wear off or get weakened by cleaning.. Or if there is an advissed way to clean them??

Fog

Been wondering about some alternative to my Shoei for mist/fog.   Despite having a pinlock and so on, it mists up like buggery.   The outside of the visor gets misted up really badly too - constantly wiping it and it doesn't seem to help much.

Btw, that slightly rubbery surface of the inside of a pinlock - anything one can do about it if it gets scratched?   Got a fair scratch right in the line of sight on mine, quite a nuisance.   Particularly because it's almost new.

What did the AGV set you back, mate?

One other thing -

Where was it made, has it got a damnable "Made in China" sticker inside?

I need a new helmet

and like AGV, the fit is good and wind noise is minimal. Schoei were crap on my noodle, but I do have a pin head

I change mine every 3 years so might have a gander on t'internet
