Motorcycle Visors

I've spent a good bit of time reading up visors and the benefits different tints and shades offer.

I'm curious if you guys have any recommendations for visors. The helmet in discussion is a Shoei RF-1100 or similar quality helmet.

As I ride more so in the early mornings and late evenings I face a lot of glare from the sun. I've been told and read Iridium visors are really great for this but they scratch pretty easily. I'm not one to put my helmet in a pansy helmet bag so I'd rather something with a bit of durability.

Thank you and let the discussions begin.

Look into the Bell Star. There is a transitions visor available for it. Light, comfy, quiet, great air flow and only need one visor all the time.
