With more soft lint free clothes and a spot of soapy water give you visor and Pinlock a good clean. Then polish out all the smears, finger prints and ensure it is super dry. Any moisture remaining will be sealed in and mist up as soon as you ‘re out in the cold.
How do you protect your helmet visor from scratch?

Windex and others have ammonia in them, and that is really bad for face shields. Try to use a cleaner for plastics if absolutely must use a cleaner. The best thing is mild soap and water though, and dry with a cotton cloth. My Arai RX7 helmet wasn’t cheap, and the iridium shield are just ridiculously expensive.

Do pinlock visors work?
There are companies that make cheaper versions that make use of the Pinlock pins. But these cheaper ones are cheaper for a reason and, in our experience, they simply don’t work. And the main reason is that the beading around the edge of the insert is plastic as opposed to silicone.
