    Hello Everyone,

    Yesterday, as I was driving my bike from work, I noticed my helmet's visor is fogging most of the time. It's very uncomfortable driving with a fog up visor. What should I do with my helmet?
    By the way I'm using Shark helmet. Thanks in advance!

    You can get some anti fog sprays to coat the inside of the shield,
    and some shields have a pin system thats basically puts another thin
    shield inside to help, if you have a chin vent open it, that's what it's for.

    Or hold your breath.

    My helmet doesn't have a pin system, but thanks anyway. I'm going to try and search for anti-fog spray or anything. :).

    You can find anti fog spray at hockey equipment stores.

    There are wipes, too, but I've had mixed results with both. Nothing works better than air flow

    My helmet has a flip open vent on the chin that lets in fresh air up the screen inside like a cars defrost system, works very well, at stop lights I just pop the screen up a bit to keep it from fogging.

    Unless you can hold your breath for the whole ride it's inevitable.

    Thanks for your tips, it's really useful. I'm actually training myself to hold my breath throughout the whole ride. hahaha (just kidding)
    Well I did try to search for some inserts, and PinLack and WeePro is on my short list.
