BarryBrisco Posted November 2, 2007 Share Posted November 2, 2007 I'm trying to determine how much Arai face shields block UV, and if there are any products out there that can increase the face shield UV protection. I'd like to get as close to 100% blockage as possible while still being able to see through it! This is on the recommendation of my dermatologist. Of course I wear a good sunblock while riding, usually SPF45. The Arai website isn't much help on this topic. I own a fairly new Arai SZ/m helmet and the website say the face shield "maximizes UV protection" but doesn't give any real data. I've searched the web but can't find any more than that. The Helmet Sunblocker product appears to only block UV in a narrow strip at the top of the faceshield. Does anyone have any data on how much Arai face shields block UV and if there are any aftermarket products or replacement face shields that can improve the stock shield in this regard? Thanks.
