Icon Optics Fog Free Race Visor - Not Road Legal
Customer Product Reviews
First time having a tinted visor. Great on the road makes riding with the flick down sun visor a thing of the past. The visor doesn't steam up at all which is great considering there is no pin lock. Locks in place on the helmet so doesn't vibrate or move around while riding.
Not as tinted as you'd think
This visor is excellent looks wise, if this is the reason for getting a smoked visor get it. But functionally wise this smoked visor is not as smoked as I would want. On a sunny day is may still be uncomfortable for the eyes.
Good choice of colours
Can't really go wrong with a tinted visor... These don't fog up, only downside is you should buy some of the extra inserts that go on the sides if you want to make your life a little easier when changing visors. Gold one looks great!
Great looking visor
I bought the silver mirrored visor. Installation was more difficult than I would have liked, but once installed it is fine. Looks great, not too much tint (a lot easier to use in low light compared to a dark tint visor) and fog free!
This visor stands out
Let's assume you in a hypothetical situation, used this visor on your road helmet. You would find that there no glare what so ever from the sun and the tint is just right for even over cast days. It only takes 1-2 mins to swap over (maybe less if you did it a lot) And it gets a lot of looks like any mirror visor does. This is of course totally hypothetical. I have also used it on the track and the it is super clear and easy to use.
As good a fit as the original
Great bit of kit only downside is you have to either change the end caps each time you want to switch visors or spend 35 quid on a second set of end caps. The visor can be a pain to get to lock back in place but once you get to grips with it they aren't too bad. I bought replacement caps and can now change it relatively easily. Although through summer it will live on the dark visor so if you don't ride from day to night all the time you won't mind the odd fight to get it to lock back on, if it waney l wasn't for the lock system being a pain it would have been 5*
I chose to replace the standard visor with a mirrored one and I was shocked how easy it is to change. It took less than 2 minutes and that includes removing the packaging. The visor is great, just like a 2 way mirror, there is no way you can see in but once the helmet is on you can see out perfectly even when riding at night which I was surprised about. I highly recommend these visors, they fit prefect and look great.
Mind blowing product and service
Ordered the blue Icon race visor for my Icon Airframe Pro (that I also got from Sportsbikeshop). Was amazed not only by the amazing product that I was sent but also by the extremely efficient customer service and delivery of the products. Could not be happier with my items and Sportsbikeshop as a whole, highly recommend you check them out, you won't be disappointed.
I purchased the Blue Optics visor for my Pharaoh lid. Whilst this visor is technically not for road use, nobody cares! Because it not only looks awesome but puts the funk into functionality! Yes OK, riding in the dark is tricky but for daytime riding this visor does the trick. There is no fogging inside the visor and a wide view. The reflective coating has many benefits, keeping the sun glare to a minimum giving you a great view of the road ahead and hiding your ugly face from the girls you're flirting with at the traffic lights. 5*
