SHOEI PINLOCK ANTI-FOG VISOR SYSTEM
TESTED BY: Boothy MILES: 5,000+ TIME: 5 years PRICE: £26.95 WEB: www.pinlock.com Anyone that sweats as much as yours truly will be all too familiar with the woes of steamed up visors. Whether you’re on the track or the road, not being able to see where you’re going doesn’t just spoil your fun, it’s downright dangerous. Over the years I’ve tried all sorts of products, including visor sprays and gels, face masks and alternative visor systems similar to Pinlock – none of which I have found work anywhere near as good as the genuine article. With a correctly set up Pinlock I have never had a visor steam up badly enough to interrupt a ride or spoil a race. However, be warned; a badly looked after Pinlock will work, well, badly. The soft plastic that they are made from can be very easily scratched by a pair of gloves rammed inside your helmet and they must always be adjusted properly, but remember to avoid fingering as your greasy prints will react with the surface leaving a nasty blemish in your field of vision. Folk regularly call me a fanny due to the meticulous nature of my visor care regime, and they are probably right, but I like to see where I’m going. And the great news is that loads of visors these days come ready to slap a Pinlock straight in.
