Double Visor Helmets

I don't know if this was posted but I saw this in mag. I wear glasses and this alleviates the whole sun in the eyes issues. Cabreg Helmets & Motraz Ltd

I saw a similar helmet at one of the shops last week. It had a clear visor, and on the outside had a dark smoke half visor. Looks like it would only the upper half of the face.
The one you pictured looks better than the one I saw.
Good idea for riding during the day then into the night.

That is a cool concept.

...but not a new one. Aviation helmets have employed this concept for years and it's already been done for bike helmets.




(But, yes, it is cool.)

I like it, but it looks like it might be a bit awkward to get around if your nose itches or something...

You'd just have to slide both visors up to scratch.

I've got an insert in my helmet that covers my nose. It's designed to aide in fogging prevention. It creates a problem when you get itchy. I have to try to reach it throught the bottom of the helmet.

Is a cool idea. I've never seen a bike helmet made that way. It would certainly help on those mornings that I end up being at work until well after sun up and didn't bring any shades. Or those evenings when the sun is going down and I'm wondering where to put them and not get them scratched all to hell or broken.

The one pictured is around $185 US.
