Re: Tinted or mirror helmet visor?
i have both, but will not buy another mirrored visor. the mirrored visor tends to chip very easily. (shoei CX-1) a small grit like pebble will chip it and it is very annoying to look through. it doesn't look bad from the outside, but looking out of it is when you can really tell. it is also very easy to scratch. the tinted ones hold up better. i admit they (mirrored) do look cool, but i am sticking with the tinted ones from now on. i don't ride at night unless i have to, but i would not suggest riding at night with a tinted shield. put the clear one that comes with the helmet under your seat...if you can and change them out when it gets dark. the tinted/mirrored shield is at it's worst at sunset. once it's completely dark your vision improves, but not like during the day. i guess it's cause of the lights..if that makes any sense.
