Quote="gmoss"]The halo did not get anything on it. It did chafe some, as mentioned, had to loosen the helmet, have it sit lower. I finally abandoned it because my helmet does a good enough job. It became more an interference than anything. Worth a try though if you are having issue.[/Quote]

An issue is a problem someone's trying to mitigate without expending effort/cost/attention. Sweat in my eyes is definately a problem for me. (Not digging at your comment, more of a work complaint).

I'm keen to try the halo, i think I'll try the buff first though as i already own some. We're getting some warm weather this week so hopefully I'll get a ride or two in.

Thanks for all the help so far.

This is my current solution. It's a bit of upvc door seal glued on below the brow pad. It works fairly well, but leaves it's mark on the forehead. Not the end of the world i suppose. I'll have to stick it back on once or twice through the summer, and it's not super comfy.

My helmet has a good absorbing pad, which makes the halo less a need for me. I have evtra pads for it as they wear. Whrn it fills up, sweat drips off my nose. New pad after 4 yrs made a big difference for me too. Helmet is a Kali.

I've now had a couple of rides wearing a buff under my helmet, like a beanie. I'm impressed with how well it works. Today was quite warm and i was riding pretty hard. Both rides were at around 14 miles with 1500 to 2000 feet of climbing. No sweat in the eyes, no need to wring out the helmet pad, didn't feel like my head was boiling, i was able to wear riding glasses without any drips. This could be the answer.

Neck warmer tube thing. Buff is the brand name of the folks who invented it.

Glad it worked out, as I ve said I use mine all year round. Other advantage I’ve noticed is how fast the inside helmet pads dry out

Rodie caps on the road bike
Buff under normal helmets
Nothing on the full face helmet. I only wear this on uplift days, so it's off on the lift or in the van and cooler while zooming downhill.

I've got a couple of Halo Headbands (neoprene style headband with a silicon strip at the bottom to divert sweat from dripping onto my glasses). It's inexpensive and has worked well. Gone from glasses that were hard to see out of due to seat drops to 1-2 drops over a 2 hour ride.

I'm in SE US, so humidity.

The GUTR Performance Sweatband looks interesting as well, basically the Halo w/o the sweat wicking part.

Head band when it is colder, otherwise it is just part of the gig. Hang the lid to dry in the truck bed while driving.

In addition to using a headband, I apply a continuous bead or arc of Chap Stick over my eyebrows (not on the eyebrows) and down to just below you eyes. Works great for keeping sweat out of your eyes and off your glasses.

Not tried this myself, but I've seen people mention use of Vaseline on your forehead/brow to direct the sweat down the side of your face. Pretty sure runners do something similar...
