Helmet misting solved

Recommended Posts

giley

So finally solved noted missing on side of visor... Removed the vent on front one big hole now.

Noticed that there is a design flaw.. the vent plastic actually prevents air feeding to the side of the visor even though internally there is what appears to be channelling for it! 

 

Going to design and make a new plastic bit that works!!!

What helmet have you got? Also, is it the external vent you've removed on the one inside the visor?

I have a shoei gt air that mists up one section of my pinlock almost instantly. I've never had a problem with pinlocks before and this particular helmet is supposed to be designed with airflow in mind so I keep wondering if there's a problem with the vent.

Interesting you note that. I have a HJC something or other that made big claims about the ventilation and, low and behold, the pinlock around the base of the helmet fogs up a little. Not enough to blind me but enough to be really chuffing annoying; now I can’t help but wonder if it it’s the increased airflow. The helmet is colder in winter than I remember any of my other helmets being cause of the breeze...

shoei neotec v1... yes took the vent out from inside.. will get some pic's up.

 

it is colder now, but no misting even at a stop. I think the increased airflow prevents the misting so interesting yours seems opposite Ciaran wonder if it's how they move the . air.

I have two spots on the Neotec on peripheral vision that does this and I have to crack the visor open to clear it in slow traffic. Very annoying and gives me cold drippy nose syndrome in this rather fresh weather!

I will be doing the same for the same reason, and have you noticed that The shoo-buts:muttley: are now far cheaper that of the Shoie's?

Well the basic is, and i do not want or can afford the Schuberth comms kit...

I have the opposite problem - even with all the vents closed I can still feel a trickle of cold air going up the inside of the visor past my nose! ❄️❄️❄️

I've replaced my Shoei Neotec V1 with an HJC FG-ST this winter. The Shoei started to get a bit unreliable with latching the front now it's five years old, but has been an excellent helmet. 

As for the HJC, I've got a few miles under it now and will go so far as to say it is as good a helmet as I have ever owned. Well up to the quality of a Shoei or an Arai. Excellent fit and very comfortable, with good ventilation and while I feel the drop down sun visor is a bit of a gimmick (it is on the Neotec as well), it works fine. Looks very nicely made and well finished, considering it's their cheapest fibreglass helmet. Very pleased so far. The visor in particular stays virtually mist free with the pinlock, even on cold mornings. Absolutely superb value, costing me just under £150 from sports bike shop.

Shoei Neotec V1 as well and the same.  Really bad this morning, mind you it was like riding through water and I was lovely and toasty with my heated gear.  Way too many people without Hi Viz on bikes this morning though.  Do us all a favour chaps and chapesses.

Funny you should say that! Driving along a local single carriageway the other night, in a line of cars all doing about 40, a bike came by nipping past two or three cars at a time (depending on gaps in oncoming traffic). By the time he was a couple of cars ahead of me he ‘disappeared’ completely with his single rear light getting ‘lost’ amid the taillights of the queue of cars. Gave me quite a shock, actually.
