Where can I get a sun visor/peak to attach to helmet?

Post by Pitbull Simon » Fri Dec 30, 2005 10:57 am

Hi there, I am gearing up for a trip down the colorado later in the year and am looking for something that I can attach to the front of my helmet to keep the sun off my face.

I have seen some before which are quite floppy (semi-rigid) and attach to the helmet with velcro.

They don't seem to stock them in local canoe stores - anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks in advance.

UK Canoes, Lancaster
OR
Brookbank Canoes, Manchester

As i see that you live in Bristol you might want to try there online store Get Out Canoeing. http://www.getoutcanoeing.co.uk/acatalog/Sections.asp

And after doing a search on their site i found one at £16.99. Just type 'visor' into the search field at the bottom of the page.

I wear a baseball hat under my helmet when its sunny and that works a treat, I just take out some of the padding and this space is filled by baseball cap. I do the same for cycling skid lid.

Many thanks for the helpful replies, I think I'll go for a Salamander.

My head is too big for the baseball cap trick, even with an XL helmet!
