Title: Glasses misting under Nolan N87. Suggestions?
Post by: Petstep on October 03, 2020, 01:33:52 PM
I recently bought a Nolan N87 lid and I'm really pleased with it - good fit, comfortable, relatively quiet, etc. Better than the Sharks and AGV's I've had previously.

But it has one issue that's annoying me - my glasses start misting up even in not cold weather. During the summer I can live with it as it just open the visor a sliver and it clears. But not so good with the cold and rain coming.

I've not really had this issue before, or at least they clear quickly once moving. I've put in a Foggy mask which seems to help a little, and spray stuff on them. I'm guessing it's something to do with the airflow. Any suggestions? Could try swapping to the standard screen (got a tourer fitted ATM), and take out the screen thingie under the chin, but neither are appealing in the cold....

Any ideas?

Try some anti fog spray. Optician or online

Smear some washing up liquid on the inside of the lenses. This will make it a bit blurred so wipe it off until the vision is clear. Works on visors too....

Suggest you make sure the helmet vents are open on the chin and top, remove the bottom/chin barrier thing and use a neck warmer instead to keep out cold. If the inside shield also fogs, consider buying a pinlock insert. I wouldn't be without it.

 Yep, I use anti fog spray - didn't make a lot of difference. It has a pinlock and that's fine. It's the flipping glasses that mist. I'll try it without the skirt thing under the chin and let you know how I get on !!

Ok, good luck.
I've got the Nolan N104, wear glasses, and with the vents open and no skirt my glasses don't get fogged. The pinlock keeps the visor clear but I have to occasionally take it off and clean between the shield and pinlock.

If you have a pinlock on the visor, try to remove the visor and check if the pinlock is loose on the visor.

You can tighten the pinlock by the little tiny screw on each side of the visor.
If the pinlock seal is not adequate against the visor it will fog.

Hope that helps.

Have you tried polishing your specs with liquid soap?
Just a drop on each lens and then polish until it's gone

Thanks for all the advice. Finally took out the chin skirt thing. Made all the difference - a little misting stood still, but very quickly cleared once moving. Chin now a bit chilly in this colder weather, but perfectly bearable. But nice to see clearly!!
