Helmet visor fogging?

16 posts in this topic

So wore my Kask Bambino today for the first time in a rainy TT at Calga. after about 10 min the visor fogged up completely. I tried to raise my head a bit to get some air in to no avail had to take it off and put it my jersey.

 

Now a bit of history. last time I used it I had sweat and stuff splatter on the inside of the visor to wiped it with a baby wipe afterwards. not sure if that stuffed up any anti-fogg it had on it.

 

Any advice on how to get rid of this issue?

I use rain x on outside and the anti fog (same maker rain x anti fog I think?) on inside. Both from super cheap auto or similar

Tri rubbing spit all over the lens

Works a treat with googles

Ps seriously I think this will always be a problem with this style of helmet on a cool and/wet day

Probably a helmet best used on warm ( not hot)sunny days, and make sure the helmet is always dried out after use

Man these things are gunna end up pretty smelly over time

More importantly how did you go?

 

Epic effort to get out there in this weather but in saying that all course records to date have been set in the rain, something about diminishing rolling resistance on wet roads etc etc.

Spit did not work actually .... I hope that anti fog will work.

Yes baby shampoo works for swimming goggles. Not sure exactly what type of babies they use. I assume its the clean surface that means the condensation has less to form on. I don't like the anti-fog treatments I have seen because if you touch them they smudge, and that is possibly worse than condensation because the smudge will - stay there even in the dry.

Cat crap is what the skiers use. Since buying it I have never bothered with anything else.

 

Another vote for CatCrap. It's so long since I skiied I'd forgotten about it. TIme to source some more.

USed to have that issue playing hockey and we ended up wiping Mr Sheen on the inside of the visor. Seemed to work nicely

Before Pinlock came about, I always used Fog City on the moto helmets and it worked a treat.
