So you can actually see out of the visor after you put that on there? I would think it would impede your vision

Yeah you can see out of it. It does not impair your vision at all. I have the babydoll one and everyone stares when I'm riding. I LOVE IT! Very cool idea..

The material used for the mesh/visor is a special material made specifically for putting graphics over windows without impeding view. It's no worse then a lightly tinted helmet.

Neat stuff.

I'd get one if I didn't already have a cool paint scheme on my X11. The skull one looks bad ass.

Sweet no worries on bubbles I guess when it goes on the helmet? How do they determine which helmets they fit since each helmet man. has slightly different forms.

Check out the gallery, you can see that they are spandex with some soft trim around the visor area.

Looks like it would interfere with the rubber seal that keeps water from getting behind the visor.

simpsons have been used by motorcyclists for years. the general concensus is they're loud, the periferal vision sucks, they're wildly overpriced, and extremely badass.

Yeah Simpson Super Bandit my gf bought it for me and had it painted and then gave it to me for Xmas.

They are uber airy allow for a lot of airflow while riding. Peripheral vision is fine, yes in the overpriced but she hasn't told me how much it all cost her.

Used by a lot of racers in cars and motorcycles I've heard. Who knows.

Not the type of helmet I'd use as a daily driver though. Too cold during colder weather, hurts like hell when using earbuds, and the shield is uber stiff to go up and down.
