I will be purchasing my helmet in the next couple of months and was wondering if their is ay one helmet that fits better for people who wear glasses or if they are all about the same?

Bandit & Bell both have worked for me.

i use a bandit with no shield and i use snowmobile goggles they fit over your glasses and inside the helmet my glasses never fog with them. plus if u get in an accident your glasses stay on your head

I have a G FORCE full face helmet and really like it, I wear my glasses under it. This helmet does come with a breath protector so I dont have any fogging and the eyeports seem to be wider. Eddie

ya know my old man was yellin about that to i ran a hundered lapper at the end of the season and had to reach around on the outside of the window screen under caution to get the mud off from it where it was piling up.my screen is mounted to the cage and the screen i use is kinda fine so i don't usually have to much of a prob with mud on my goggles plus most of the tracks around here are dry slick by the time we get on them

I have worn sunglasses with my all my helmets and never had any problems. If you worry about fogging just get some anti-fog windshield aplicator from wal-mart and apply a small bit before racing.

Tear-offs are not that expensive and very easy to use. Much better than taking a chance of crashing because of the mud smears.

I use an anti fog polish called kat krap I bought it at galyon's sports in the sunglass section. it goes on the inside and outside of my shield and sunglasses. Good for fog and great for scratch protection too.

i could not see running goggles with most cars, a late model or a mod would just beat your face with stuff. i would not try it i would just try different types of anti fog stuff and dont breathe so hard, regulate your breathing, thats what we have to do when my sandblasting hood fogs up.
never had a problem with a bandit and oakley sunglasses.

Currently, I use my Arai Signet motorcycle helmet and it's great. I tried my partners Simpson Bandit and couldn't believe the difference. His leaks air around the shield and has much more coming up under your chin. I literally couldn't wear his with my contacts where with my Arai I'm fine.

So, when I have the money, I'll be buying an Arai 'S' racing helmet so I can stop using my 'M' motorcycle helmet. They're really $$$$ compared to a 'cheap' $200-$300 'S' helmet, but the comfort level is well worth it. I'm noticably slower (around .5 sec) when wearing his helmet compared to mine.
