Best use of SymaxII
I bought an HJC SymaxII a couple of years ago, thinking that the slide down shade was pretty cool. Didn't take long to figure out that I liked glasses better than this gimmick, so quit using it (the shade) all together.
My biggest problem riding comes with riding into the sun, and/or in and out of sun and shade. Well it finally dawned on me that I had the solution right there in my helmet. I used a dremel tool to cut the bottom of the shade square (flat), just above my line of sight, then covered it with black tape - solid.
Now, when I ride into the sun, I just slide it down and problem solved. Flick of a button and it slides back up into the helmet and out of the way. Works real well and thought I'd share just in case others find themselves in the same boat as me.
