Motorcycle Face and Eye Apparel * A Hoax or Coax - Articles Surfing

Motorcycle face and eye apparel saves face. Every rider who has been hit by debris, bugs or insects, blaze of the sun can go into details on how they are benefited by said motorcycle apparel.

Windshields and sunglasses may not offer the best protection that we need. This is because debris, wind, bugs or insects may still pass behind a windshield. On the other hand, sunglasses or goggles with shatterproof lenses may not seal out the harsh wind or water from entering our eyes.

Face shields cover all or a portion of our face. They come in a wide range of designs and colors. Face shields must allow airflow, easy breathing and prevent fogging. The most popular face shield is the flip-up type. In connection with the non-flip types, we have bubble shield and flat shield. Bubble shield is a bit curved thus, in selecting the same, be sure that it will not distort your vision. Most frames have a rubber or cotton strap to resist tearing and stretching. Another note is to use it with a snug or securely fastened helmet to prevent it from being blown off. Aside from that, consider its durability or its impact resistance and scratch-free features. In order to guaranty the same, you have to look for the VESC-8 or V-8 standard on the upper portion of the shield. These face shields mean they are already tested for impact and penetration resistance. This way you can be assured that you are getting a state-of-the-art face and durable shield. Cleaning the face shield is pretty easy. You just need a mild solution of soap and water or a reliable plastic cleaner. Rub the solution gently on the shield and rinse. After that, your shield will be ready for a ride once again.

When it comes to eyewear, purchase only those that carry VESC-8 approval and are designed to go with a helmet. Same with the face shield, goggles must also be snug or securely fastened to the helmet so they do not blow off. Cleaning goggles is easy. You just hand wash it in the sink and let it dry.

Whether you are purchasing a face or goggles, one basis must be the clarity of the lenses. Tinted lenses reduce vision especially at nighttime. At daytime, you can use sunglasses under a face shield to avoid eye fatigue.

According to studies, face shields and eye apparel greatly reduces face and eyes injuries. Thus, it is best to wear them every time you ride.
