Shoei Breath Guard

My15 month old baby girl got into our closet and pulled out the box my shoei came in and dumped it out all over the floor. There were two things in there I hadn't seen. A breath guard and a chin curtain in a little plastic bag taped to the manual. I ride in the freezing cold and my visor fogging up is a constant pain. The breath gard inserts between the lining and the shell. It deflects your breath down and greatly reduces the fogging. I was amazed at how good it works. The RF-1000 is the first helmet I've owned that included these, didn't know they existed. I think that's the first time I was glad my kid got into something she wasn't supposed to!

I picked up a HJC FS-15 Surge this summer.
My second HJC helmet, both of which had the detachable breath guard,
but this one is the first to have the chin curtain... don't think it's detachable though.

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

You should also pick up a Foggy Respro breath deflector. Works better than any chemical you can put on your shield.

Thanks. That's one more item on my wishlist.

Ridge, Cool, I will definitely check those out. I had been using rain-x fog guard but you have to reapply every other time, gets to be a pita. Thanks for the tip!

My shark Helmet has the breat guard love it. If you really ride in the cold alot you may want to consider a snowmobile helmet. Heated sheild and breath guard work awesome in combination.

Hmmm, never even thought about a snowmobile helmet. Will have to look into that too. Here in Texas we get snow about once every 5-10 years and it's barely enough to make a snowball and it's gone the next day. It's snowed here in Dallas maybe 3 or 4 times in my lifetime and I'm 43. We get plenty of heat though!

I'll vouch for these!
I've been using these for about four years now. Best method I know to prevent fogging.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

the chin curtian is removable on the FS-15... got the same helmet as you... FS-15 surge comes out pretty easy if you pull on it.

Best accessory I ever bought. we often ride in low 50sF, even mid high 40s F here, in the beginning and end of our riding season and fooginf is non existant with a Foggy respro. Same in the rain.

Up for a ride?
