I think the external sun shield from AFX FX39 should fit. It works surprisingly well.

This works perfect!!! No more scratch face. Thanks for the simple but so awesome idea!

Same here. I guess at first it feels weird. So much that I tried riding without the cheek pads. I was looking for after market thinner ones but now have the originals in and they feel good

If anyone has a different shield fitted, could you please post up a pic to help me decide what one to get, cheers.
If you want any protection at all from summertime sun glare, then definitely get the dark smoke. ..it's not too dark and i still sometimes wear a pair of gray Elvex Avion safety glasses under it to get even more shading.

Thumb Fly Trekker

I have had the Fly Trekker for almost 2 years. Other than being big and catching wind at high speeds I have found it very comfortable and great for DS riding. The cheek pads do interfere with some glasses but I haven't found it to be a big issue. It works well with goggles, and is vented well. Considering the low price I will probably buy another unless something else really impresses me. I have a large oval head and have a hard time finding comfortable helmets.

I have two of the hi vis Fly Trekkers and think highly of them. Many miles have I ridden under one or the other on long adventure journeys.
A great value for a good solid helmet.

Well, I finally pulled my cheek pads and liner out to clean them(after three years) and found they need to be replaced. I checked several sites out and discovered the liners and cheek pads sre offered in different thicknesses for the different shell sizes. I cannot find any sizes on my liner or cheekpads. On revzilla the sizes are shown in "large" than with a mm size option. I no longer have the paperwork or box gor my helmet. Can any offer help on the mm size liner and cheek pads that come stock on a large model? I sent emails to Fly and Revzilla also.

Thanks!

Inside the Fly catalog, in the helmet parts section, it should list which pads came 'stock' in each of the sizes of helmets. Most mail order places work only on electronically-fed part numbers rather than from catalogs. Check with your local dealer.

Revzilla came through with the answers-10mm head liner and 26mm cheek pads on a size large.

Thanks Revzilla!

I came to post the same thing - you beat me to it. I think I'm going to snag one. For that price, if it doesn't fit I can just keep it as a loaner or give it away...

I've got a couple thousand miles on my F/Trekker now. My only complaint is it isn't as good in cold weather as my Arai. It's more breezy inside (yes of course the vents are shut). When it's below 40F I'll wear something else.
