Tinted visors are a more comfortable option than wearing sunglasses and they look great too. But if you don’t get home before the sun goes down, it’s difficult to see and you end up squinting all the way home with the visor up. Riding around with an extra clear visor for nighttime isn’t always practical either. Their odd shape makes them difficult to stash away and they can easily get damaged in your luggage.

AGV Helmets is working on an innovative solution to this problem. The new product uses an ultra-thin LCD screen to change the visor from clear to tinted (or vice versa) instantly with the push of a button. The LCD technology is electrically powered and controlled by a small unit mounted on the visor. The LCD visor can stay tinted for up to 12 continuous hours before requiring a recharge and can stay in standby mode for hundreds of hours.

MotorcycleNews.com is currently testing a prototype for AGV. The AGVisor will be available internationally in April 2015 and will be compatible with AGV’s high-end helmets – the Pista GP, Corsa and GT Veloce. The price for the visor is expected to be £149.99 ($225 USD), although AGV says they will offer a heavy introductory discount.
