I think if we could solve that problem, we'd be millionaires.

Usually when I ride in the rain, I wear my full faceshield helmet. I spray it with Rain X and bring a towel. It's tolerable...but not perfect.

Ask Kendo how sunglasses perform in the snow....

Ken

is your full face helmet a snowmobile helmet??
i have an extra road motorcycle full face helmet that i could use for snow riding but i think the fogging factor would suck! or is that what the towel is for?

It's not a sled helmet. Which probably explains fogging. So yeah. That's what the towel is for.
