About

"The following recommend VizorX!"

 What is VizorX?

VizorX is an innovative addition to your bicycle helmet. Combining a visor and a helmet cover, it is designed to optimize your ride, enabling you to be safe and vigilant.

Winter cycling is nearly accompanied by great challenges. A rider’s head and face are exposed to cold weather and (more dangerously) to flying debris. Currently there are no products on the market that can effectively address these issues.

VizorX protects the rider’s head from wind and cold weather. It also offers an anti-scratch full-face cover that has UV protection. The main competitive advantage of VizorX however, is its anti-fog solution for a full-face shield.

Not only does this solution offer clear vision and protection, its material is also extremely durable. Hazardous debris such as flying pebbles, branches and other objects will be deflected off its surface!

VizorX is made of industry standard 3mm polycarbonate clear plastic with the same specifications currently used for motorcycle helmets. It does offer the same protection against impacts, although we realize the speed and intensity of impacts for bicycle riders are usually not nearly as severe, as one would expect for motorcycle riders.

VizorX is designed exquisitely to fit any sized helmet. The face shield is lightweight, offering easy installation, adjustments and detachment. The elastic helmet cover molds to the shape of your helmet without changing its original shape, and you will not need to purchase a helmet specific to this product. In addition to its protective features, patent pending innovative designs such as different colours and patterns are available. VizorX is affordable and adaptable.

Prolonged face exposure to the sun, rain and cold weather damages your skin. VizorX integrates many features into one creative attachment that protects your face while riding through harsh conditions. It also offers a unique anti-fog system that allows for a gentle draft on the inner surface of the face shield. This draft in combination with the anti-fog coating is the solution to your fogging problem while riding.

VizorX optimizes head protection with an optional helmet cover attachment, specifically designed to protect your head from wet and cold weather. Your head will no longer suffer the freezing irritation of cold, wet and breezy conditions during rides. Keep your head dry and warm!

The majority of similar products on the market have not resolved the issue of fogging. They instead work around this problem by offering face shields that do not extend below the nostrils, and therefore, leave the lower part of the face exposed. This defeats the purpose of a full-face visor!

VizorX is a true full-face shield with an anti-fog system. It comprises a series of holes on the surface of the shield both above the level of nostrils and above the level of eyes. The holes are connected to fine channels, which direct the incoming airflow down towards the inner surface of the shield where there is moisture from exhaled breath. The new fresh air then dissipates the fog immediately while the rider is moving.

I love riding my bike, but have always had trouble riding in the cold. The idea came to me by looking at motorcycle helmets, and was brought to life by connecting a commercial helmet face shield to my bicycle helmet using Velcro tapes. I spent hours on consultation and design simply because I learned about the fogging issue and restrictive mount! It took several prototypes and weeks of redesigning and testing until I figured it out. During the period of design evolution, I learned about many different aspects of such a product, and finally brought it to a level where I was satisfied. Now the latest prototype works perfectly with an industrial-grade adhesive mount, a dual anti-fog system and a completely adjustable full-size face shield! VizorX is the next generation of this product that includes a helmet cover that protects the head from cold, rain and all sorts of precipitation. With a team of six people, we are eagerly awaiting completion of the pending “patent stage” and the achievement of our “funding stage” in order to move forward to our “production stage”. VizorX will be manufactured and shipped within 3 to 4 months once we meet the required backing support. I hope you are just as optimistic about VizorX as we are because we want everyone to enjoy riding in all kinds of weather as we have with our prototypes!

We have tested our product in various weather conditions, and are extremely satisfied with the results. We hope to share this journey with you and your family. Join us in creating a safer and more comfortable ride for riders in all ages.

Hello! My name is Farzad, the founder of VizorX. I am a physician, a father, and an innovator. Currently I live in Toronto, Canada and I love riding all year round with my kids. Toronto’s weather may be unpredictable at times, and may even offer all four seasons in a week; from fully sunny to extremely tough and cold. Protecting my children’s faces while riding has been on my mind for some time, and after searching the market, I was shocked to find little to no solutions! I needed a full-face shield similar to what motorcycle riders wear. That is when I came up with the new idea of VizorX. The prototype of VizorX ran many trials and proved to be highly effective. VizorX now offers a full face shield with an anti-impact, anti-fog capability and UV protection.! I thank you for your support in making VizorX the solution for all-season riders.

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest challenges in this project is the process of engineering and manufacturing VizorX. Presently we have established a team of successful and experienced designers and engineers. Having had years of experience in the industry, our team has created a giant network of industrial designers and manufacturers who are ready to help us with the development and manufacturing of VizorX. After receiving backing, it won’t take long (estimated 3-4 months) until the design and production get rolling. A preliminary discussion regarding design and production is already underway. We have done market reviews and pricing analysis to ensure that our backers will receive an affordable, high quality product. There are no foreseeable obstacles in our way and we are prepared to tackle any unpredictable challenges or difficulties. This confidence comes from the successful and outstanding team we have created throughout this process. With your support as a backer, we have great confidence that our commitment will offer a high level of satisfaction. After VizorX is fully on the market, we wish to maintain the supportive connection of our backers by returning with other innovative projects.
