Full Face Shield?

Too bad this project never got off the ground. The mirrored visor in particular looks bad ass! Is there anything comparable or even similar on the market?

Didn't see much on a quick search. Somehow got a feeling the idea works better than the reality.

I've seen the boucliervisor as well. Was hoping for a clear shield option as well as the cool mirrored look. I'm fine with the bouclier as there seems no other viable options as of now.

rain would get in between the helmet and visir like it does on my giro helmet. but unless its anti fog it may really get steamy.

It might be fine for leisurely spins around the neighborhood, and possibly for winter riding, but I would think it would get real hot real fast with any kind of effort.

Those aren't bad ideas. I've long thought about this kind of thing. I wear prescription eyeglasses and switching to sunglassed or putting wraparound sunglasses on top has been a bit of an annoyance.

The visors don't need to cover the entire face, just to your nose would do. And when it rains, flip it up and it keeps your glasses dry and clear.

While I might normally scoff at this type of product, I can see a useful application. In high winter winds, let's say ~20mph and temperatures at or below freezing, your eyes can really dry out or tear up. It's a bit uncomfortable. I find myself riding with my eyes closed for short periods of time just to recover.

So, I'd be interested in how the shield handles various wind angles. I'm not discounting this, but I'd really like to hear from actual riders under realistic conditions.

I was wishing for something like this when I rode into a swarm of small insects this morning. I must of inhaled just as I hit them as I ended up with insects up my nose and in my mouth.
