Best visor to fit Easton S17 helmet?
 
Splashed out on a new lid & tried fitting my Bauer Pro Wave visor onto it.. looks terrible & generally doesn't fit properly. The rounded top prevents it from sitting anywhere near the top & the shape of where the helmet fixings are Makes it stick out way too much

Can anyone recommend a nice snug fitting visor that suits the S17's lines? Nothing fancy required, I was thinking of going for a plain straight cut one but I'm worried that the fixings might be a problem again

Thanks

I've used a straight cut Oakley on that helmet with no problems. The key to the new helmets and visors is using spacers. The easiest spacers to use are the white plastic circles since you can secure one at a time.

What size helmet do you have and did you use spacers? I had a similar issue with my Itech pro wave on my S9 until I got some spacers and now it fits great. However, I would prefer to get a straight cut visor cause it would look better.

Mines a large, but I think the shape is slightly different on the S9. Mine didn't fit anywhere near as good as yours did even with the little white spacers

LHS wants 78 for an Oakley visor, that's like $125! Time for ebay I think..
