    Default Helmet fogging up

    We bought a new Titaniumô 9400i helmet and no matter what you do it fogs up almost instantly anyone have cure? It is hardly usable the way it is.

    I have had problems with helmet fog in the past. This is how I solved it:
    1. Take the visor off of your helmet by removing the 4 screws located at the ends of the visor.

    2. Place a dab of shampoo onto the wash rag, and wipe it all over the front and back of the visor. Make sure you get everything: this is what makes the visor anti-fog.

    3. Wash off the visor with water, getting all of the bubbles off. Leave the film coating on, however, as this is what protects the glass from fog.

    4. Replace the visor back onto the helmet.


    Baby shampoo tends to work the best, however, other shampoos will do almost the same job. Make sure you only get rid of the bubbles from the baby shampoo: the film is what protects the visor.

    HOPE THIS HELPS!

    Default RainX

    Try RainX inside and out. Follow the directions on the bottle.

    I read this somewhere and it has worked great for me.

    What part of the helmet is fogging up? I'm assuming the back of the filter plate. Is that an auto-dark helmet? If so, it's probably plastic, huh?

    I've always used a 4x5 glass filter plate and I've never had one of those fog up ever. I've had some safety glasses fog up, but never a filter plate.

    There is an adjustment on each side of the headgear attaching it to the helmet itself. There are 3 slots that make it possible to move the helmet distance from your face. Try adjusting it so it's further from your face.
    I had a similar problem and it took care of it.
    If that doesn't work, Miller has a replacement headgear with a fan circulator on it.
    Hope this is useful!
