    Thanks!
    Premji's at Bombay Central i think stocks AGV, and they have a few local brands alongwith the dajjya stuff.
    A few other dealers & stores stock the really fancy looking but lousy thai & chinese suff, just stay away from all of that.

      None actually, using a coloured visor in the night is just taking a stupid chance with your life!
      Worst case, just flip the visor up and enjoy the breeze.

        Heard Sparx and KBC helmets are available in India and Vega is doing the marketing for them. Checked with an exclusive Vega store in Hyd, but they didnot have a clue. Does anyone know of online Indian store which has these products ?

          I would say that the Mercury kinds are good for night riding aswell and yes the black color visors do help and i have been there and done that

            Anybody knows where I can find smoked visors for the new series from CROSS?

            The Funkys waalah said he will get them soon about a month back .... i guess not soon enough

            Nothing beats a clear visor with a good anti glare coat..... infact the mercury and the black ones are suicidal when it comes to riding in dark! Thats why i prefer a smoked one which is similar to the clear one but has a tint of black/brown....v

            Anybody has every used a tinted orange visor? They should help a lot in dark rides!

                Cyberpunk I don't know anything about Mumbai, as Manson has mentioned you could try those shops.

                  ..

                  I use mercury coated , no problem in day time though, cant adapt it in night driving , and since my clamp has broken my visor is stuck in a good position, i can just bent my head to see thru the visor when the fellow drivers coming in opp direction jus dont care to lower their high beams..
                  but the anti-glare goggles by fast track are better than using the mercury coated ones for night driving.


                  Blore guys..please suggest some shop to get the helmet spares like clamps for the visor.. i dont want to be in the GTG with a loose visor/ maybe without a visor.
                  Never think riding safe is in vain when it could save a life time of pain.

                    My previous HJC CS-12, which nobody has been able to hook the visor back on, and the new AGV XR-2 i got a few weeks back.
                    Have another old beatup AFX lying around which i don't use, and one HJC CS-12 Echo lying with a friend in the US since ages.

                      My Helmet

                      The AGV is a sweet deal and I got the same,

                      AGV X-R2 Race Helmet
                      (Two shell sizes for improved fit, SSL Carbon Kevlar fiber stratification and core-system technology, X-Vent System with controlled airflow uses vents and extractors to supply fresh cooling airflow inside helmet, Removable & Washable honeycombed DuPont CoolMax lining for maximum absorption of perspiration and improved air circulation, Double D-ring chin strap, 100% UV protected Anti-Scratch & Anti-Fog racing Shield with Tear-Off Mounts needs no tools for removal, Snell M2000 and DOT certified, Fit can be customized by changing the Cheek Pads and Liner)

                        KBC, HJC & Scorpion are just as good as each other, a lotta bang for the buck helmets.
                        Mukesh & Stuart stock KBC in bombay, slightly more expensive than maybe what you would pay for your helmet inclusive shipping but then you can try it on before paying up.

                        While at KBC, lookup the gun shot / gun slinger helmet in the VR 2 series, and the ex 400 dog fight helmet in Scorpion, just love those graphics!!

                          Hey manson, do you have the address of Mikesh and Stuart?

                          thx
