Motorcycle Helmet Visors / Shields / Bags

If you ride often you already know that a helmet isn't enough. A motorcycle face shield is also critical, protecting you from debris, dirt, dust, insects, rain, wind, and whatever else you encounter on the road. There are two kinds of motorcycle helmet face shields: the detachable variety and the type that is already built in. Which one you need depends on what kind of motorcycle you ride, when you ride, where you ride, and of course your personal preferences. Most motorcycle face shields are made of plastic. Some are tinted, but unless you only ride during the day you are probably better off with a transparent motorcycle face shield.

Ventilation is also essential to your comfort, so choose a model with adequate air flow to avoid fogging up your motorcycle helmet face shield. What to Look for in a
