Don’t get steamed up!

Bikers know a thing or two about not getting steamed up on cold, damp days.

Special anti-fog sprays used on helmet visors are also helping people who need glasses getting misty-eyed and reduced vision when wearing a protective face covering during the current coronavirus crisis.

We sell three different sprays to help keep visors clear:

Chemicals prevent water, in the form of small droplets which looks like fog, condensing on the visor or glasses, particularly when they are cold and your breath is hot.

Just spray the surface, let it dry and then buff it with a clean cloth. The treatment minimises surface tension and prevents moisture clinging and reducing visibility.

Dave Forster, our parts, clothing and accessories manager, said: “People are also finding that anti-fog treatments work with glasses which tend to get steamed up at this time of year, especially with people having to wearing protective face masks and coverings.”

These sprays, small enough to fit in a handbag or pocket, also make ideal Christmas stocking fillers.

Many all-year riders also use a Pinlock visor insert which, fitting on the inside, has a dual action.

Firstly, it’s made of a material that reacts like a sponge and absorbs moisture effectively.

Secondly, its silicon bead creates a double-glazing effect. The pocket of air trapped between the visors acts as an insulator for the inside temperatures in the helmet.
