    Need Advice

    Hello everyone, Have any of you experienced having a helmet that fogs up while driving at a cold weather? What do you do to stop your helmet from fogging because I'm having the same problem with my helmet. I hope you can give me some insight about this. Thanks!

    I used to ride through the winter. I was never able to completely eliminate fogging but I had limited success with using some form of breath deflector. In the winter that was usually my scarf that I wrapped around my mouth and nose, then down around my neck and into my jacket. Not sure how effective that will be with a full-face helmet though.

    I have that problem all the time during cold, wet, or foggy weather. There are lots of anti-fog chemicals on the market that will help some. But they do need to be reapplied before each ride. I also have one helmet with the Pin-Lock face shield system. But that requires a helmet face shield that comes with the pins that the Pin-Lock attaches to, which typically is on the more expensive helmet brands. Plus replacement Pin-Lock inserts are not cheap!

    Since I have been dealing with this problem for 55 years now, I continue to try different solutions. Just about any of these solutions, including a breath deflector, works to a certain extent, but what works the best for me is to crack the face shield slightly and put up with a cold breeze on the face - which can be mitigated with a scarf, or something similar. Of course, once finding a solution to defogging the face shield, if you wear glasses you end up having to keep them from fogging.

    This may not work for you, but I have a motocross-style helmet- it's full face but I have to wear goggles. I have not had issues with fogging even at cold temps but I haven't ridden all winter (yet). What about a reusable dusk mask like people wear in Asia? If it forms a good seal that might work.

    Just buy a full face lid with a pin-lock visor and be done with it. Only way to go, no more fogging regardless what the weather.
