What works the best for you to keep your face shield & glasses from fogging up? I have heard something about Zooke working.
Thanks, Phil

Keep them clean, having good vents, and having stuff that was factory treated for condensation build up helps.

The non-motorcycle specific stuff they sell at sporting good stuff always make mine blurry and worse than just having condensation.

Some people have had mixed results with stuff like Cat Crap. Especially poor in cold weather.

I had good results with the random crap they sell at Cycle Queer.

If you don't have a ratcheting shield so you that can crack it open to reduce fogging you can slit a small section of vacuum hose and put it at the bottom of your shield to keep it cracked open.

(Learned here from another inmate.)

Bike Brite Moto Mask Anti Fog Coating works for me 4oz bottle with a decent pump cheap enough try it out.

It is impossible to understate the importance of airflow: an old ratty HJC with fully failed anti-fog coating on the visor that fogged constantly on my strom behind a medium calsci was entirely fog-free on a naked bike above 5mph, and any fog that formed at a stop cleared in a second once I started moving.



Of course, the experience was also cold as hell, so...


I have a shorter screen on my strom now, but I have really been enjoying my signet-Q and pinlock.

The Arai screen depression for pinlock results in a completely different experience than HJC's pinlock implementation, but I still don't think it is perfect (close, though).

Of course, six bones might be overkill just for fogging

put a dot of dawn dish sopa on the inside of your visor. with a clean towel smear it all over and keep wiping until your screen is clear, don't rince it off. this will work for a few days.
other than a fog city insert this is the only solution that has worked me

I got some anti-fog cleaner from cycle gear. Works absolutely fantastic - for a few days But you only need to re-apply for it to work again. I did a half-assed job of putting it on this morning's rainy commute and could clearly see where I had missed spots.

I am so surprised the first answer wasnot "pinlock".
It is night and day difference. Never going back to single layer visor.

Think about it for a moment, it is basically a thermos window, cannot fog.

I'll second that on pinlock. Wouldn't even consider winter or rain riding without it.
Breath guard with pinlock is awesome.

I agree with the PinLock as well....my only complaint is the halo effect from headlights at night but I am getting used to it.

My Shoie X-11 fogs up bad. Especially with a balaclava. Clarity DeFogIt is the only thing that works for me.

I've since bought an Icon Variant, and I can't get it to fog no matter what.

I'll toss in another vote for PInlock

No more cold blasts on the eyes. They are worth more than what they cost. It's a quality of the ride thing.
