Re: Helmet Visor?
I think you are describing exactly what I bought from Aerostich, which does not fully satisfy my need. Here is their description of their SUNBLOCKER product:
"Installation is easy. Simply wet in household solution and slide it into place in the upper peripheral vision area. Your "line of sight" is below the SUNBLOCKER, thus eliminating the glare which comes in from above. It stays in place permanently for year round comfort! No more changing face shields for day or night riding. After riding a few miles, you'll wonder how you ever rode without it! We make two types. The Arai SUNBLOCKER has precut brow vents and the Universal SUNBLOCKER fits all other helmet brands.
Only takes minutes to apply to the INSIDE of ANY helmet with a face shield, including Arai.
The Sunblocker is held firmly in place with no adhesives!
Stays in place permanently in the upper peripheral vision area for year-round comfort.
No more changing face shields for day or night riding.
Especially beneficial to those with skin problems from the sun.
When it's time for a new face shield, simply peel the SUNBLOCKER off and reinstall it in your new face shield. It will not tear or leave any sticky residue!
The Helmet Sunblocker was originally developed for aviation. It eliminates glare and reduces tension, stress, and fatigue. Plus, it keeps your helmet cooler on those hot days. You'll be able to ride longer and be significantly more comfortable at the same time!"
Last year, while riding into the setting sun outside of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I used both my Neotec sun visor and this SUNBLOCKER. That didn't work and I had to hold my hand up while riding to block the sun so I could see the road. A helmet bill, like I had on my old Bell Star helmet worked very well in lieu of my hand to block the sun. Unfortunately, like I said previously, i continue to keep my eyes open, hoping to find an acceptable solution, short of changing from my modular helmet. Even with a full face helmet, it seems like their flip up face shields cannot accommodate a sun visor, since if they flip up with the visor, they would probably fly off the helmet or act as a speed brake.... Dave's (saddleman) electrical tape solution should may work so I might give that a try.
