Im trying to buy a new visor/face shield for a helmet I got with my bike. Its an HJC Fusion II (a sticker says CL-12 on the side) I went to my local bike store and they didn't have any for it. Im trying to look online but Ive got no clue what to look for as in what helmets it fits, sizes and what not. What I am lookin for is one of those yellow tinted ones that are suppose to help you see at night (MSF class told me about sunglasses made for that purpose so i figured they have visors for the same.) If someone can help me figure this out and give me a lead on were to look I would appreciate it.
if it's a new helmet, the sales-counter-guy should be able to find a shield for it in one of the numerous catalogs he has. If it's older, you may be out of luck, unless you can find one on e-bay. But if the helmet is old enough to be discontinued, you might as well just get a new one.
Just stick with a clear visor. I wear smoke colored safety glasses and slide them down my nose. They also make yellow tinted safety glasses which would work as you describe. Just make sure you get straight ear pieces and that they are comfortable with your helmet on.
There are several threads on this board covering this subject.
That is correct that around ever five or six years it is time to scratch the helmet. Also in many cases the makes are changing the visor on their latest helmet. Shoei is one of the few that have been using the same visor on their helmet for last 10 plus years.
While I have a dark smoked for one of my Shoei helmet that has been replaced for a clear now like the other one.
Sun or not I wear my heavy framed industrail protective lenses AND I wear bifocals.
Then I'll probly just start savin and buy a new helmet. I just bought my bike so I'm scrounging to buy the other supplies I need. (riding jacket, frame sliders, and a few replacement parts for my bike) If they really only do have a 5 year shelf life a new helmet would be a good idea since I went down for the first time today. Grass at 10MPH still hurts I dont care what anyone says
