Ok, what tricks are there to reduce fogging the inside of the helmet shield other than cracking them open. Bought a new simpson super voyager helmet and suppose I should have it modified to fresh air intake this winter. Thanks for any help. Jim

Not to sound like a tightass but buy the rainx sheet. If you put it in a ziplock bag it'll stay moist for a month or better, that's all you should need it till this fall. jmo OX

I use an anti-fog wax/polish called cat C-R-A-P. Got it at a sports store for $1.50 by the sunglass department. I've used in in paintball masks, helmets and on glasses. Works great and is really cheap. It also helps protect against scratches.

i breath threw my nose and regulate my breathing so i breath very slow, i have just to see let air out of my mouth really fast and it does fog, but if i keep control of my breathing no problems ever.

I have a hard enough time regulating my bladder out there, much less my breathing. Three straight laps, three wide, and me in the middle, I nearly passed out from NOT breathing! My hats off to you, Zero!!!!

Shaving cream. Wipe it on, let it dry, polish it off.

Smells good too....

i guess i just dot get excited much, i race against some guys that are covered in sweat at the end of a race, even when it is cold outside. i only sweat when its hot outside. i guess everybody is different. i try to stay as calm as possible, i fiqure the more calm you can stay the better. you can think clearer.

i am fairly calm in the car too i have actually have gotten into the habit of singing while i am driving. i guess it comes from riding around on the street with the stereo up. the only thing is to remeber to sing quieter under caution so the other people don't hear you. we have mufflers up here and i have gotten a few odd glances under caution when i was a little louder thn i thought.lol

this may sound a little gross,but i got in a pinch with a foggy visor,and remembered what we used to do snorkeling.spit on it ,then wipe it around.just don't try this in the car,with the helmet on under caution.don't ask.it wasn't pretty.

First off, I know where you're coming from! Had major problems my first year.

Rain-X didn't work for me.

The answer for me was a 'Fog Free' shield!

They look as though they have a laminate on the inside of the shield. There is no mistaking the difference.

I think I purchased a 'Bell' 'fog proof' shield from speedway or somewhere. They work great!!!! And are worth the extra cost. No fogging what-so-ever.

Also the CAT **** stuff is awesome! Ski stores sell it. I use it only for my glasses,... that is once I found the 'fog free' shields.

If you where glasses you know the problems...ps, I also breath a little to hard when three wide!
