Will the OXYGEN snowmobile helmet keep my glasses from fogging?
The OXYGEN snowmobile helmet has been tested under different conditions, including the use of prescription glasses. It is important to understand that it is impossible for us to say that there will be no fog under any condition. This statement is true for all helmets on the market. However, we can say that depending on the adjustments available on the helmets (winds, minimum opening of the visor cracked open, heating power available via the visor and the garage), it is possible to minimize the situations or conditions that could normally generate fogging on the glasses. People who wore glasses during the customer program (who tested the helmet for more than a year) did not identify the fogging on their glasses as problematic.
Can I use a communication system with the OXYGEN snowmobile helmet? Is the helmet com system ready?
Yes! The OXYGEN snowmobile helmet was designed to accommodate the use of many common helmet communication systems found on the market. Your OXYGEN snowmobile helmet will come with basic instructions on proper installation of such communication systems. It should not require any modification to the neck/chin curtain.
