How to fit a Louis Garneau visor to a Time trial cycling helmet
This is my first blog post in English, usually i write inÂ Norwegian. I know there are allot of people wondering about how you fit a visor to your time trial helmet so here is a guide.
This is the stock Louis Garneau visor, i think it is a pre 2009 model. The 2009 model looks a bit different but the procedure is the same. Obviously it does not fit the Giro helmet because it’s made for LG(Louis Garneau) model. It’s suppose to be screwed onto the LG helmet but to fit it to the Giro helmet you will need to do some cutting.
I test fitted the LG visor onto the helmet to check how much I should cut of. I used a bit of electrical tape to secure it to the helmet while putting some cutting marks on the visor withÂ a DVD type pen. Actually the visor is made by the same stuff that DVDs are made of, polycarbonate.
To make it fit under the plastic of the Giro helmet you need to cut about 0,5cm between the foam and the outer plastic. Please cut in you helmet at your own risk. I can not guarantee that the helmet does not take any damage by doing this. A lot of pro riders has done it this way so I’m comfortable doing it when they use it in UCI Pro TourÂ race.
