New helmet mod for sun protection!

Post by MuniAddic » Mon, 11 Jun 2007 07:38:29

I usually avoid the midday sun at all costs, since my family has had
cases of melanoma. So, now that I will be doing daytime cokering for
probably several hours in the bright sun, I decided to salvage my
(UVA/UVB) motorcycle face shield, and try to make it fit my regular
skateboard helmet that I use for MUni and all-around uni riding.

Seems to be a good fit and rotates up and down perfectly! Of course,
this is in addtion to the 45 spf (w/zinc oxide!) sunblock that I put on
*daily* without fail! The good thing about the sun shield is that it's
can't be sweated off like the sunblock!  

It's obviously not *total* sun protection, but it helps! And it also
provides added protection against people trying to poke you in the eye
with a sharp stick!;)

the only situations in which i can see myself hitting my head while
riding are:
A)backwards coasting
B)HSG(high speed gliding)
C)drive-by cannonball shooting:D

mainly because there are no good trials obsticals anywhere near where i
live, i would build my own,but im too lazy:rolleyes:

Hopefully you don't run into any rebel forces when riding.

I'm sure that will help but yeah, on top of riding a unicycle, you will
look absolutely ridiculous wearing that.

Whoa that's a pretty harsh way to look at yourself! :eek: I see
_mtb-ers_ wearing full-face helmets with sun shields ALL the time! So
why would it be such a stretch for _MUni-ers_ to wear a face shield?
Here's a short vid with me wearing it haha!:cool:

Btw, if ppl want to say it looks rediculous, It won't bother me--not in
the least. Maybe younger ppl care 'cause it's a peer pressure thing,
but I'm so past that it's not funny!...wait, yes it is!!:p

http://SportToday.org/

PS: AT least it looks cooler than this: (of course, some of you will
probably say you like this better...can't please everyone, so I don't
even try haha!)
