UVEX Visor "detents"
« on: May 03, 2020, 06:23:50 pm »
I had a UVEX Enduro helmet, non-Carbon, it gave good service but eventually got tired, especially the visor got floppy.

I have a UVEX Enduro helmet,Carbon, it has been good but again, the visor is getting tired, floppy, would a new visor help/fix it? Or does it need the shell mounting implants as well?

The Visor mechanism has been designed to have as few moving parts as possible i.e no springs etc.

As such it works on a "ratcheted" friction pivot basis.

 There are  two possible places of wear:

1. On the Visors' Small teeth (where it pivots on the visor mechanism)
2. On the visor mechanism

We would suggest replacing the visor mechanism first :

https://bikegear.co.za/product/visor-mechanism-desert-fox-enduro-carbon-kevlar-adventure-helmet/

R85 for a complete set

If this does not improve matters then you would need to replace the visor as well:

https://bikegear.co.za/product/desert-fox-enduro-pure-carbon-kevlar-enduro-helmet-spare-visor/

Alternatively please feel free to send close up pictures of 1 and 2 above and we should be able to advise on the extent of wear on these items.

Best regards

Sorry for the hijack but I too have an as new Uvex non-carbon helmet and I love this thing albeit noisy at times.
I would like to know as you suggest does the Fox Enduro helmets spares fit on the UVEX helmets as I am looking or a new Visor too.

Is the Fox helmets a replacement for Uvex as I don't see Uvex helmets anymore.

The Desert Fox range is a replacement for the Uvex .

The Carbon visor mechanism will fit the Uvex non-carbon .

The mechanism components required are:

And if you require a new visor:

So is the Desert Fox made by the same people that made UVEX?
We all know that Uvex made the best ski, skating and most sports helmets in the world hence is Desert fox an alternative to Uvex or is it essentially a Uvex  made by the same company and/or the same people that made Uvex before?
Is it a very comfy helmet and is it very quiet with wind noise?

I read somewhere a couple of years ago that the same company were making the BMW helmets as well.

OK, so I ordered the new visor and fittings from Bikegear, it was promptly delivered after level 4 and fitted, but then life and Covid-19 got in the way. So I only took the pig out today to try it, LOVELY, a new crystal clear visor and the detents are crisp, loved it, not a proper ride, but good enough to show its good. Its like a new helmet. :biggrin: :biggrin:
