Cool wearing glasses with a helmet

i wear glasses and cant wear contacts because of eye troubles. ive just started wearing glasses cuz of an injury and learned this weekend that they suck with a helmet. have to keep the shield open or everthing fogs up instantly. any suggestions? my wife says i look like a monster cuz my forehead and cheeks are beet red from riding that way all weekend. by the way 259 miles of fun! trails by me are really good for the first of the season

Take a bar of regular scented (gold) Dial soap, and a Kleenex tissue; Take the bar of soap with one of it's corners and rub some of it onto your lenses softly, on both sides, then take the kleenex and rub it in, like rubbing in paste wax on a coffee table, till it's all gone. They will never fog. This is an old "road racing in the rain" trick.

Wow, have to give that a try.

I too can't wear contacts anymore because of an eye injury. First year when I wore my glasses, I too had to ride with the shield cracked open. At night, it drove me crazy. If we stopped for one second, I was done. Anyway, I put heated shields on all our helmets. Everybody loves them, and no more fogging.

get an electric shield for your helmet, it won't fog again. maybe the different tricks will work for you but i doubt it.

Better than both of the above get yourself Ski-doo's mod helmet and you will be fine, I myself and a lot of people I know have went this route just for this reason.

I used to have that problem playing hockey, as soon as I slowed or stopped my lenses would fog right up. They have an anti-fog spray you wash your lenses with and it will eliminate the fogging. I have used some and it worked 100%. Thats a cheaper option than a new helmet $$$

he said his glasses fog inside the helmet, the electric shield doesn't do much for that, I also have a ski-doo Modular 2, this is what i do on my glasses

I know it doesn't make sense, but it works! First my glasses would fog then the shield. This has made my riding so much better.
