    Default Favorite sun visor for helmet?

    I know this has been discussed, but let's revisit.

    I really have given up on not looking ridiculous, so which is most effective? Doesn't flop in the wind? etc

    I have an IRH helmet, if that matters.

    TIA

    I like the Da Brim visors....the "petite" is just right...the original size I got teased about it looking like a sombrero

    I have the DaBrim, regular size. Love it for trail riding in the SoCal heat. I really like the portable shade and neck coverage it provides. Ridden in Santa Ana winds with it and it has never budged from my helmet. I don't think there has been a time i have been out on trail that I haven't been stopped and asked where I got mine.

    Just today, I was driving on PCH in Huntington Beach and saw some folks on the beach bike paths with DaBrims on their bike helmets.

    I like the equivisor.

    I adjust the velcroed stap with the visor sitting a tad higher on the helmet than it should sit, then push it down into place. This makes it very tight and I don't have trouble with it staying on at all.

    Well thanks for this information, expecially on the Da Brim models! Looks like what I have been trying to invent for myself, already made. I can definitely see myself purchasing one of these to shade my eyes.

    Thanks for advice, all. I think I am going to go with the endurance version of Da Brim. It has all the features I want (360 degree, larger brim, etc). I also like that the back curves down. which may help shade my neck. Honestly, it looks pretty decent, too.
