Wondering if anyone has used any of the Fog City stuff? I've read a couple articles and reviews online as well as very good reviews by PB. I'm picking up a new helmet soon and I was thinking about trying the Hyper Optiks visor. Any body have any experience with these?
I was after a fog city for my Shark RFS2 but the local store only had Progrip brand visor insert (same thing I guess) as I have started spending a fair bit of time at the track of late and no matter what the conditions my helmet fogs up instantly (I think my big face is too close to the visor) Anyway I was a bit sceptical but it worked brilliantly the only thing is that you can see the perimeter of the insert which may be a little distracting for some people...
I have used an amber Fog City shield on a few of my helmet visors. I really like them quite a bit. Not just for the fog-free aspect, but also for the hi-def view you get from it.
I haven't yet put one in my new helmet, as it has a pretty good anti-fog system and shield built in, but I am looking for an amber laminate for the exterior of the shield.
I know that this is well past the original post date but anyhow...

Have used them for past five years in various guises:
Clear visor + Hyperoptiks = Too light but good if you're going to get caught at night
Light Smoke visor + Hyperoptiks = Good compromise, okay (ish) for night, darker for sunny days
I think it comes down to no visor currently will do all jobs. So I now use a black visor with clear insert or a road legal iridium with a black insert, and a clear with the hyper in.Wouldn't do without a FogCity now but they do require you to be careful with the inside of the visor!
I love the things. Every time I buy a new visor I buy a HyperOptik insert. Keeps it from fogging up, and the light reactive properties really make a difference with the glare. It's hard to notice till you use a visor without one, but saves having different visors with different tints. They're not really cheap, but if it means I don't have to have my visor open a bit when it's minus 5 degrees C then I'll spend the money.
