Best Visor yet
This visor is more like the brim on a baseball cap. It is large enough to shade my ears and face. Does not flop around like other visors I have tried.
It fits both of my helmets and stays put. I used a damp cloth to clean the dirt and dust off the helmet before fitting the visor. The inside of the visor has a tacky like finish that helps it "stick" to the helmet.
So far I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Great in idea and function.
Stays in place well and really makes a difference. Have jumped with it quite a few times and don't have a problem.

This may not be the most glamorous thing to wear, but it's easy to put on your helmet and WORKS to keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face. Who needs melanoma? Plus, before I bought this, I had sweat running into my eyes this summer--again, not about glamour, but very practical, and soft, so it seems quite safe. I highly recommend it.

Keep the Sun Out of Your Eyes
Nice boad brim keeps the sun out of your eyes. Use with caution when jumping though as the visor can become loose and fall off. This product is best used for flat work, hacking and trails.

Second to None
To size the visor correctly - With your helmet on, put the visor on and attach the velcro together. Now slide the visor off, without undoing the velcro, and make the visor smaller by about an inch. Put the visor back on, readjusting smaller or larger until it is mildly difficult to slide the visor into position. Visor should not lie flush against the top of the helmet brim, but should rest firmly on the side edges of the brim. In back, the bottom of visor should be even with the bottom edge of the hard shell of the helmet. The trick is, once visor is fitted snugly on helmet do NOT undo the velcro. Remove/secure visor by scooching it on/off with both hands.
Biggest downside - the sun has faded mine to a sandy brown color. A non issue as far as I'm concerned for riding at home.
As far as the issue of it blowing off, yes strong wind will blow it off. But strong wind can also blow a snug baseball cap off of my head too. I simply use good judgement regarding the current weather situation as to whether to ride with it on or not.
I would not suggest the use of it to beginners as it does limit peripheral vision and if you have a habit of looking down... Well, keep working with a good trainer before riding with this visor.
It does provide excellent protection from the sun for my face, ears, and a good portion of my neck too. I still pour on the sun block though! Sun damage can prematurely age the skin, may cause skin cancer, is life long and irreversible.

Funny looking but functional. Much better than sunglasses that are always slipping and sunburned face and ears.
