When it comes to race day, the correct visor can be the difference between winning and losing. Mother Nature can throw all sorts of weather at you on race day; from beaming sunshine to grey overcast conditions. Obviously it goes without saying that being able to see the track ahead of you is essential if you want to perform to at your best. The guide below walks us through the ultimate guide to Zamp Visors.
Things To Consider:
Light Conditions – The most important factor to consider when buying a Zamp Visor is the light conditions you can expect. Are you likely to racing to bright sunshine? Will you be racing in the late afternoon/evening when the sun is low in the sky. Perhaps you will be doing most of your racing in an indoor track?
Fogging – If you do most of your racing indoors or in colder and wetter climates then you will need to give extra consideration to the fogging up of your visor.
Colour co-ordination – Choosing the best Zamp visor to match you helmet design perhaps won’t improve your racing but it will sure help you feel faster 😉
