Helmet visor...yes or no?
 
New to helmets and don't know if there are pro's or con's to having a visor on your helmet.

Does it cause any problems with your goggles?
Can you still put your goggles on your "forehead" or does the visor interfere?

Thoughts?

I was looking at the Bern Brentwood helmet.

Visors will only work their purpose really if it fits your goggles. For example, the variant brim mentioned above works great with their goggles, and the venting keeps the googles from fogging cause of the solid fit.

We've sold a ton of those in the shop.. and people love them. Only bad thing? They're usually about $160. :/

Not really, during the winter the sun is pretty low, and I havent found the small "visor" on my helmet to do anything about it.

On some it seems to be style.. others it seems to play a part in keeping your goggles from fogging up

I have a bern watts hardhat with a visor.

I find that the visor helps keep the snow out of the upper vents of my goggles.

ya, same deal for me, I went out one day no helmet and my top vents on the goggles got completely filled with snow and they froze fogging my goggles up wicked bad. With the helmet this has never happened.

Been riding for nearly 15 years and I don't recall that ever happening to me - and I have never worn a helmet. I also don't ride powder very often.

Anyway, I ordered the Bern Watts - which has a visor. I have Spy goggles that I hope fit.
