I've been using one of these inserts since the middle of last season, and it's worked wonderfully. Unfortunately something I foolishly stored inside the helmet scratched the insert, so..
I'm looking to replace the insert.. and that should be easy enough.. about 30 bucks.. except for a mystery that's popped up. I was looking carefully at my completely clear
anti-fog insert, and I noticed that it says "DAYTIME-use only" in a little corner of it. Why??
I'll admit to not riding at night unless I can't avoid it, because I know some guys in wheelchairs who had encounters with deer. Not riding at night, if there are problems with this type of insert at night I don't yet know about them. Has anyone used a clear insert at night?
Do the manufacturers think that helmets don't fog up at night? (Maybe they don't. Like I said, I don't ride at night.
Thanks for any thoughts and advice. Perhaps there's something better to get since I need a new insert anyway? I've heard about the chromatic ones that darken in the sun, but the reviews suggest the technology isn't quite there yet. And why can't they make the entire shield do that? Well, anyway, there's my dilemma.
