    Q:

    Riding a scooter at about 35 miles per hour, would this work and not bend back? Would it stay on? Thanks.

      A:

      Works great on the river. I wouldn't recommend it for scooter use. At that speed it would likely bend either back or down into your eyes. Not sure how long the velcro tape would stay attached to the helmet. But on the other hand, it's cheap and if it doesn't work, not much of a loss.

      yes, i think it would be fine, i wear it skiing fast and it seems secure. be careful though, i had a floppier visor on a bicycle helmet that would flop down and cover my eyes at about 20 mph!

    Q:

    Will this visor hold up on a helmet when it's used for whitewater surfing? I'm looking for a sunshield that can take an underwater pounding.

    Thanks,

      Hi Amy,
      I've spent a fair amount of time upside down in breaking ocean waves.  The visor is holding up very well.  Hope this helps!

      The visor itself can take a beating , but the velcro attachment system is the weak link. I would not recommend this for surfing whitewater, great for paddling IK's or rafts where you don't spend much time in the water.....Ive lost mine after having to swim.

      Amy--I've had one of these for years. My helmet has a small visor of its own that serves me well most of the time for surf kayaking and rivers, but when I know I'm going to have a glaring or hot day, I put this on and it's great! I've gotten trashed kayaking, flipped rafts, and gone for swims, and it's always done its job without any problem. Stee

      I have worn this visor for the past 8 years and it still works perfectly and, other than fading, it is still like new. I teach Swiftwater Rescue and it has been to probably 100 classes for a total of 200 days in the water. I put these visors on all of my water helmets. Hopefully, this info helps. If you have other questions, please ask.

      A:

      That visor could be used on a helmet with a small built-in visor but I don't
      know at what angle it would be. The Velcro which holds it can be placed at
      any position on the helmet (on a "great curve" flat arc) and assuming the
      helmet only curves the last inch or so near the brim, the angle of the visor
      would probably be acceptable

      A:

      i think so. the velcro strip would go above the lip, so the whole visor would be
      a little higher on the helmet, but i think that would be fine.

      I suppose it's how sever the upward cure is but I'm thinking it would be worth a try. I ride 30 miles twice a week in Tampa Florida and it works very nicely..... Ride like the wind!!!!

      A:

      Yes, these visors will work with a helmet with a flare or brow. The mounting edge of the visor will form to the helmet without any problems. Place the visor on the helmet while leaving the backing on the adhesive strip to get the best placement for the visor. When the visor is in the best location, make a few reference marks, remove the backing from the adhesive strip and place the visor on the helmet. I like these visors because I can flip it up and out of my field of vision if I want to.

      I'm sure it won't be a problem. If it is, you can always return it! Good

      Sure no problem, I got them on my helemts and they really provide good glare coverage. The visor attached easily the the helmet with a stick back piece of velcro and the visor with velcro attched to the mount so the visor can be removed at any time and re-attached when needed.

      Yes, you simply apply the adhesive Velcro above flare. I have a Shred Ready

      Hi
      I purchased one last year. It works ok on my petzl helmet (it doesn't flare on the front, however). I guess it will work but might have to move up a little bit to stay away from the edge. My problem is that the tape fell off after one year of use. hope this helps. good luck!

    I got this for a climbing helmet. I use the helmet when hiking through dense western riparian habitat and climbing through tall brush on hills and mountains. The visor, of course, provides sun shade, but it also helps keeps sticks, trigs, and other things away from your face and out of your eyes. It attaches with Velcro, so I can remove it anytime that I want. This is a simple solution to putting a brim on a helmet for any use, and I think it is the best solution out there. I haven't seen any practical alternatives.

    I used the sticky back hook and loop tape provided to attach the visor to my helmet and everything seemed OK until I went to get the helmet a week later and the visor had fallen off. Before application I had thoroughly cleaned the helmet so that was not the issue here. The sticky tape had simply peeled off of the helmet under its own weight. I replaced it making sure to get really good pressure and contact between the tape and helmet but a week later it had peeled off again.

    I bought two of them and had the same problem with the other one.

    When it is on the helmet it works great but it just wont stay on. I haven't figured out a nondestructive way to make it stay. I considered rivets but I generally resist drilling holes in helmets.

    It needs some help.

                It was a bit hard to line up on helmet, but worth every minute it took to get it straight. It has really helped with the glare from the water and while white water Kayaking with glasses it helps with the water spray! wouldn't do white water without it again.

                    I bought 4 of them. We (wife and two kids) really like how they keep the sun out of our eyes and off our faces. The only problem we had was that the sticky-backed velcro started coming off on the first day of use. (Note that I first fully cleaned the helmets with alcohol to ensure they were squeaky clean.) The issue seemed to be with my first two helmets (I applied the velcro the night before using them). I thought I may have to rivet the velcro's ends to the helmets. However, I just let everything dry for a few days and simply re-stuck the velcro - and it seems to stay stuck now. I applied the velcro to 2 more helmets a few days before use - and the velcro stayed in place this time. So, I suggest applying the velcro multiple days before use ... as maybe this gives time for the sticky stuff to "set"?
