... one of the best purchases I've made in a long while. The instructions are a bit sketchy, so I had to search online for some pictures of folks screwing it up or doing it right before I committed to gluing the pads. Right off the bat you're offered the choice of installing high/low, and trimming the plastic holders - DON'T TRIM THESE UNTIL YOU'RE POSITIVE IT'S WHAT YOU WANT! Or, you'll soon wish you hadn't. I chose the HIGH installation setup, eventually gluing the enclosed pads almost even with the top of the face shield. This placement resulted in the mounted shield sitting ~ 1.5" above my line of sight, which is ideal for me. I'm totally satisfied with the product, and will be ordering one for my wife's helmet shield as well. (Posted on 6/12/15)
This is the third SuperVisor that I've had over the last 14 years. Excellent product; works just like wearing a baseball cap to keep the glare out of one's eyes. Only one of them blew off my helmet, and that was after about 4 years and 55,000 miles of use. I won't ride without one installed on my faceshield. (Posted on 11/17/12)
the visor needs a couple extra attachment plastic pieces. if your helmet is treated with a protective coating, you need to scratch the helmet surface to help it glue the plastic attachment pieces. In my case, one of the four provided did not stick and it blew off.
now, I only have 3 attachement points. Without a full four points of attachement, I fear it will be sucked off at high speeds. this will especially be true if another one falls off.
without the plastic attachment pieces, the visor is of no real value.
so, a couple of extra plastic pieces would be of great help for possible "trial and error" issues.
also, a simple paper template to help determine where to scratch the protective helmet surface would be helpful. (Posted on 5/31/12)
I've had one of these on my helmet since they first came to the market many moons ago. Good to see Rider Wearhouse carrying it in their store. It's such a simple concept I wonder why the helmet manufacturers didn't come up with it.
When you install it, give it a couple of days for the adhesive to come up to full strength just like the instructions say, don't ask me how I know. Once fully set, it will not blow off the face shield, although I haven't tried it with the optional lifters.
With it in place I have no need for tinted shields, If I desire a colored filter my rose colored shades fit the bill.
I ride behind a big windshield so the wind blast is not an issue for me. It may be a bit noisier out in the open air, just wear good fitting ear plugs.
The price is right too, it hasn't gone up in over 10 years - such a bargain.
As others have said, the SuperVisor is a critical accessory for reducing glare in bright sunlight and for coping with low sun angles. It works well for me by gluing it to an Arai Profile face shield. The glue doesn't work so well on all face shields and that might account for some of the negative comments here. My wife has an Arai RXQ helmet and I have not been able to glue the SuperVisor to her shield, despite multiple attempts to remove the coating on the shield. She isn't too happy about this because she can see the difference it makes for me, so I plan on attaching it with pop rivets this winter. An added benefit for me has been a reduction in wind noise as it seems to smooth out the airflow over the helmet. (Posted on 11/10/11)
Put it on my Shoei, full face helmet - easy to install - works like a champ riding into the sun early in the morning. I was hesitant to get this because of a few previous reviews but I am so glad I got it for my most recent trip. Thanks for a great product!! (Posted on 10/6/11)
This is a piece of junk. It won't stick to a Shoei Helmet so the guy told me I had to drill holes in the face shield. The clips are weak and loose their grip after taking it off a few times. The visor is cheap and makes your helmet look cheap. If you want a good visor then buy a dual sport helmet with a "quality" visor mounted from the factory. This is the a total piece of junk!

I was tired of baking inside my modular helmet, tired of staring into the evening sun. Too bad the bill of a ball cap wouldn't extend through my face shield.
But SuperVisor solved my problems. (Posted on 8/19/10)
