An alternative to Pinlock
« on: January 24, 2020, 09:30:18 am »
I came across this yesterday, it's been around for a while now.
I know Richard has had one or two problems with Pinlock inserts in the past, this may be the answer.

Here are a couple of Youtube links

Fog free visors. As demonstrated to me recently. And a hell of a lot cheaper than original visor plus pinlock. Not using it myself as I slightly less recently bought a new visor and pinlock at an eye watering price. Worth a punt?

Thanks for the suggestion, Rae.

However, I've gone with the Muc-Off Anti-Fog liquid, which works remarkably well - much better than I imagined. Goodness knows how I survived without it.

The main reason to go for a spray was that it not only sorts the visor, but my specs as well (the specs were more a problem than the visor).
Specs both sides, visor - inside only.

An application to the visor will last several rides if you keep your fingers off the inside, and just wipe down the outside. The glasses not quite so long, since I tend to take my glasses off quite often during a normal day = fingers on glass at some point, then you wipe the smudge and the spray coating comes off too.
