    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,
    Amy

      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!

      Hi, I have attached my visor some 4 years+ ago and it's still there though there have been many "poundings". Hope that helps. Thanks. Agnieszka

      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!!!!

      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.

      Yes, I have a helmet with a slight bill and the visor fits over just fine.
      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
      helmet that has a flared front and it works fine.

      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.

        I chose not to put the visor on my helmet because just from putting it in place (without attaching Velcro strip) I could see that it blocked my vision, unless I tilted my head way back. It's of no use to me.

              Comments about NRS Helmet Visor:

              Purchased two. One for a motorcycle/scooter helmet, other for bike helmet. Great success on scooter helmet. Bike helmet had too much rake (slant) and adhesive did not hold well. The anchor Velcro kept riding up toward the top of this helmet. Conclusion: If you helmet has little of no slant, this is a great product. A slanted helmet works against the natural lay of the visor. Better adhesive may solve this problem. Without a solution from the manufacturer, do not buy this product if your helmet does not have a nearly flat surface surface (no or little slant) where you will adhere the visor.

                  Easily removable, and flexible. Does a great job. Best part is that if the visor contacts something, it will flex out of the way and not contribute to torquing your neck and possibly breaking it.
