The visor on my Racequip is complete ****, may as well be an open faced helmet as often as I put it down. Cheap *** plastic that is barely translucent in the best of conditions. No complaints with the rest of the helmet, but I won't buy one from them again. I think it is the 2010 Pro model

I find it fogs up very easily and I always have to have the visor up a bit. I haven't applied an anti-fogging compound on the inside. I can't help but wonder if a helmet with venting near the mouth would be better. Other than that I have no complaints.
