    Usually only ride during the day, so would be wearing my daytime riding glasses which are polarised, anti-glare - work really well.
    If riding at night, I'll also carry a pair of transitions glasses (because that's usually the pair I find before I find the plain clear glasses).

    I really like the Neotec.
    I'm slightly confused which is not unusual... are you saying that you wear polarized glasses and also use the internal tinted visor?

    I bought a GT Air but found the internal visor was sometimes too dark, especially going from bright sunlight into shade.

    Yip. I just crack my visor open about 2cm on most rides I do. Nice bit of air flow, no misting and any bugs that do get in get filtered by my beard.

    Tried tintered visers and glasses and found them not very useful in the long run. It's not often you are looking directly in to the sun. When I do I just open open the viser so the viser glare disapears, slow down a bit and concentrate at looking at the road.

    I always run tinted and carry clear if touring
    I have some velcro on the dark visor out of view to attach a mx goggle strap to the top 40mm which comes with me. Just the thing for sunstrike over the Rimutukas on a sunny winter day..

    Hey Paul!
    Ratbag and I both have them, best thing since sliced Bread.
    We are on our third Bell Helmet with Transition lenses, they just work!, You do have to retire the old ones, tried to buy the next ones that weould take the old lenses, but no! Bloody Bell, smart buggers changed the visor design.
    Every day above ground is a good day!:

    Yes I am always miffed when Vicki needs something motorcycle or cycling related. Because shes a hobbit there is nearly always something top of the line on sale. Because I'm a standard fat old man size never anything good for me except when I scored a budget Arai a while back.. The Bell was a bargain...
