Hey, I want to get a mirrored visor, and I was wondering what my options are.... Can I get some sort of spray/stick-on stuff, or do I need to buy another, already mirrored visor? And, how much would the stuff or a new visor be?
A mirrored visor is your best bet. I've heard of people buying the mirror-finish tint material, but it doesn't work well on visors. Too much curve, and too much wear and movement. It'll end up peeling off after a couple weeks of use.
A mirror-finish (Irridium) visor is usually $60-70, depending on the helmet brand. The coating usually rubs off within a year or so of use. A regular dark-tint is about $40 (the same price as a new clear visor)
Meddle not in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup
I have had problems with iridium lenses, and have pretty much waved off them all the same. They are cool looking but they are not worth the hassle and when the tint does start to rub off which does occur and IT WILL, the affect of protection for the sun is diminished and gets bothersome real quick. Get a Dark Tint and you will be much happier.
p.s. I think blue was responding so blue I did not direct this at you, sorry.
Don't BRAKE till you see the whites of their eyes, oh yeah remind me which is the brake lever again
Jabuan - I'd need a visor for an HJC helmet (some model from last year, not sure which), too. Do you think that a smoked visor would be the better choice? I don't want to buy an iridium visor and accidentally mess it up in a month.... Would there be any improvement in this problem (I consider it a problem) - I mean, would the visors last longer now, if people have told the company???
There are now stupid questions just stupid people /images/icons/laugh.gif/images/icons/wink.gif Yeah I like that thing jabaun posted and am thinking about getting one but still may go full out and get a new shield for the suomy.
jim...when i got the blue iridium visor, i noticed that it was very sensitive to finger oils. so if you touched it, you would naturally have to wipe it off. it was just a hassle. i'm not sure if it's like that with arai, shoe, etch.
but anyway...get the smoked, it won't be a hassle like the iridum. plus scratches are less noticable on them. (IMO at least)
