Is oculist a word or did I just make that up? :nerd
No worries until they start asking you to wear robes and to sacrifice small animals.

I just picked up an HJC IS Max 2
Helmet got a little buzzy around some seams but not that bad considering I was leaning at 15* the whole time between fighting gusts.
bwwahahahahhaa.. yeah, think most helmets might buzz a bit with that. think my head buzzes for a while after riding in that weather for a while.
I did, however, order the chin curtain for it.
Great addition especially during the colder weather. Or when using the bluetooth microphone when attached.

I have question for those guys wearing eyeglasses and riding in low temperatures.

How you do this? :)

I have my great Lazer Monaco flip-up with great pinlock. But when I'm riding in freezing temperatures, my eyeglasses become foggy! This issue happens every time I stop for 30 seconds on traffic light even if I have my chin raised up.

I used antifog spray for swim goggles but I cannot say it works like a charm. I still have fog on the edges, also this works only for 2 trips.

Does anyone have same issue? Do you have any suggestions?

In my opinion, do not buy a helmet online. All helmets fit differently for everyone. What's good for one person, may be uncomfortable on another. If you buy online, I guarantee you will be making a return. The only time you should buy online is when you know a particular helmet fits you from trying it on at a store and you can get it much cheaper online. Another suggestion is to have at least 2 helmets. A full face or modular and a half or 3/4 for the hot weather. If you plan to use a Bluetooth you can easily install speakers and microphone in both types of helmets. In my experience, HTC helmets are the best bang for you buck. If money is no concern, buy a Shoei. They seem to be made the best and lots of safety engineering go into their production. They also fit your head like a glove if you head shape matches. Good luck and ride safe.

I use the chin vents and this usually does the truck for me although, I will still have this problem if I wear a balaclava. When I do, it is only at stops and in that case, I crack the visor open one notch and put it back down as soon as I am going again. I ride through the winter, barring ice/snow on the roads or predicted, very often below freezing.

You could also try wearing contact lenses for your rides.


As far as helmets go the best one I've ever owned is a Schuberth C3 Pro, pricey but super light and extremely comfortable, worth every penny.

I've apparently gotten a bit paranoid in the last year or so and prefer the safety of my chin guard regardless of the riding situation. I can say though I love the helmet I'm not at all pleased with the chin curtain. The original split and the second I bought for cold weather (well cold for me) and started splitting after just a couple of rides. I removed it to save for that really cold day.

Appreciate your comments guys
Sometimes I've got this problem even with open face helmet. I do not wear lenses because I feel panic even thinking about touching my eyes with fingers

Also today I finally got my new helmet, hooray!

These days you don't have to spend $400+ to get a good helmet. There are offerings from HJC and Scorpion for example that are equal in protection to the more expensive helmets for a a lot less money. I wear a Bell now, but my next helmet may be a cheaper one.

Bell Custom 500 RSD - open face with peak, and prescription glasses. No need for goggles as I have a Dreamscreen high screen (4" taller than standard) which pushes the wind over my head.

I‘ve given up to find ‚the one‘.

Schuberth C3: for fast driving (we have no speed limit here on the Autobahn)
Comfortable, not very loud, but a small visor.

Nolan N40 Full: for inner city riding. To work, I drive into the rising sun, home into sundown. With the x-tra plastic flap on top of the helmet, I can still see something against the sun, plus it has a huge visor to easily check the traffic on the other lanes. Not recommended for > 50 mph, tho...

Nashua Enduro Carbon: lightweight, good airflow in summer, plastic flap on top, but no sun visor. Good view through the visor.

These plastic sun flaps are great for low sun, but hard to turn your head sidewards at high speed.
