I’ve been having issues with my helmet fogging up for some time now. I recently picked up a Respro Foggy and quite honestly didn’t expect that much of it. After all it was just a bit of Neoprene. But as my previous efforts had failed miserably what did I have to lose?
I fitted it into my spare helmet - an ARAI ASTRO-R - in about five minutes. I had to be careful with the initial fitment to ensure a good close fit, but once fitted it has stayed in place with no issues for some time now. It’s performance has far outweighed my expectances.
Initially I was concerned about having a mask fitted so close to my face but in all honestly, once I had gotten used to wearing it it was hardly noticable. I have a broken nose and using this mask in my helmet is not an issue for me. It allows me to ride with a totally mist free visor in even the worst of weather. A plus point is that it still allows fresh air to drawn in from the front vent of my helmet yet the CO that I am breathing out exits the helmet from the underside.
I also wear glasses and haven’t had an issue with wearing those either. I simply fit my helmet with the mask securely inside and pop my glasses on. The nose clip on the Foggy actually helps to secure my glasses in place to so I have no movement on them when riding.
I can wholeheartedly recommend the Foggy to anybody who rides a motorcycle. Just be aware that it is only usable with FullFace helmets. It will not fit into Flip Front ones such as the Shoei Neotec etc., Open Face helmet or Motorcross helmets. For Motorcross helmets, Respro have a different model and there is a Bandit mask for Open Face helmet users.

I recently purchased a Foggy. Whilst our winters are not in the same league as those in Europe, we are a temperate climate and our winter is cold enough for riders to don the thicker riding gear and face the perennial problem of visor fog.
Well, Foggy has cured that for me. A marvelous product. Being mildly claustrophobic i had some reservations about trying the product . No worries, it is so light and contoured to my face, i actually feel comfortable in it. Breathing through the the mask is unimpeded and it adds warmth.
I can now sit at the lights without lifting my visor. My vision remains clear even at lower suburban speeds. I now ride with only two vents open and none of the four exhaust vents, so no chilly breeze blowing through my helmet. My spectacles fit well on the mask, no problems. I can even scratch the inevitable itchy nose.
One thing to other potential buyer. My Shoei had a “chin skirt” fitted. Remove it. It improves the effect of the Foggy without letting in excessive draft. Well done, an excellent product.
Cheers and safe riding,
Ideal product, a ‘must have’ for motorcyclists.
Great quality item. Glue pad at the front sticks well, nose clip is comfortable. Only slight minus is that it may need some trimming so it doesn’t obstruct the straps.
I’ve used these in various helmets over the years and can’t fault them.
The only tricky bit is arranging them so they are level in the first place.
This product ensured I can continue to enjoy bike riding to the fullest.
I use contact lenses and found that draft from the bottom of the helmet used to dry my eyes out and my eyes would get really sore. Thanks to Foggy mask it doesn’t happens anymore, even at the race track speeds. Cheers, used it for 5 years now, will get new one to go with my next lid.
Awesome product - never ride without one!
The Respro Foggy mask is the best tool to prevent my visor of fogging up that I have ever had. When I first time got it I was so happy with the Respro Foggy mask that I have since then bought 3 more to put in my helmets!
Very pleased overall. Only niggle is that the double-sided adhesive pad quickly loses its stickiness and I have used a variety of other products to keep the front of the mask stuck to the inside of the helmet - latest and most effective being duct tape folded back on itself.
RESPRO’NSE: “Good solution Giles. A fresh strip of double sided tape works well too or a contact adhesive.”
As a biker who wears glasses, I can most strongly recommend the Respro Foggy Mask, as it is the only really effective solution that I found so far which both prevents my glasses and my visor from fogging up. I have been using them for years, and always take a spare set along when travelling abroad by bike, just to make sure!
This product works. Simple. I am a racer and have had visor misting problems for a while, even in the dry and particularly when sitting on the grid. I have tried pinlock and anti-fog wipe-on solutions but the Foggy Mask is by far the best solution for me. Eliminates one more distraction allowing me to concentrate more efficiently on the racing! Highly recommended.
