Sun Reflection (Helmet)
Good afternoon all.
Looks like I will have to replace my RJ Shoei. I am finally convinced that my significant other is right about the suns rays reflecting on her face and giving one hell of a sunburn.
Yeah so it took a few times to sink in this gelatinous mass.
I didnt wear my gloss black RJ and wore my silver nolan full face one afternoon and voila my wife didnt have one hell of asunburn. even with lots of sunscreen on she would still get quite a burn. racoon eyes and all. but not with the silver.
So does anyone think that a matte black finish would absorb enough to not reflect the suns damage. we both wear open face hemets.
thanks in advance for ie; comments, or suggestions.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
