They might be double paned like ski goggles. I'd guess the better snowmobile helmets are too.

Get a Ski-Doo modular that fits properly, and you won't have fogging.

As for the luge shields, probably because they are only standing/sitting still for a minute at most before doing 80mph laying down. Their shields appear to mostly cut into air on the same plane as travel and are open all around them, whereas the sled helmets travel mostly in the opposite direction, and are sealed up against the helmet. Does it help your sled helmet to just crack the shield a crack?

Going 80mph causes them to pee in their suits, thus heating the air before it gets to the helmet. I strongly suggest not trying this on a snowmobile.

I have a modular but it still fogs. And my glasses too. Cracking it helps but then my face freezes in this weather.


I can't bring myself to buy a super fancy helmet for many hundred dollars for as much as I get to ride.

Wire up a 12v jack into your computer, and it will not fog while you are on the net.

Is your modular a ski-doo, or an aftermarket lid? Heated visors are gayer than aids.

100% false...my heated visor is one of the very few things I wish I would have purchased sooner than I did. They hands down do not fog or ice up. Not using one would be gayer than aids
