New visor

Hey all, just looking for some help.
I currently have an Itech x100 visor, which is in need of replacing. I went to Sportchek last night only to be told Itech is no longer in business, thus I cannot get replacement visors for the x100 setup.
I then purchased the Bauer HDO pro-clip visor, only to find out that it is not compatible with my helmet (Reebok 5k L).
I notice that the Bauer HDO deluxe visor looks identical to the Itech x100, so I was wondering if the replacement visors are interchangeable.
If not, which visor would be best to get that would fit my helmet?
Thanks!

Since I'm at work, I can't check the box for you, But I purchased the Bauer HDO replacement visors for the Bauer X100 mount and they fit fine. There are a few places where it doesn't line-up as perfectly as the old lenses, but yes, I believe they are meant to be x100 replacement lenses.

I haven't used a replacement lens yet, just have them sitting around for future use, but they look very clear. I wonder if I will still have to keep applying shampoo before every game to combat fogging?

I'll agree with this. I'm pretty sure these new replacement lenses are compatible. Best way is to ask for one to be installed for you if you're unsure. Make sure to get the HDO DELUXE and not the HDO PRO CLIP because they're for 2 different systems!

Since it hasn't been mentioned, Bauer purchased Itech and slapped their name on the visors. So the product should be the same.

Yeah, I bought the HDO pro-clip to completely replace my visor, but it is not compatible with my helmet.
I'll just go exchange it for the HDO deluxe replacement visor.

I was told this as well, but the guy working didn't know if it would work or not.

Thanks for the replies/help!
