    I picked up an Oakley visor pretty cheap on ebay, last minute thing. Only realised afterwards that it was a tinted one

    The thing is brand new & it fits Easton helmets, so I planned to keep it if possible

    I'd read on another forum that you can remove the mirrored style tint with fine sandpaper & a rubbing compound, but does anyone know if it's the same with the grey tinted visors? I'm not sure if it's just a grey coating/layer added to the standard clear plastic, or if it's actually made from tinted material throughout

    I wouldnt bother you cant even use any compound other the Oakley AFR on oakleys, sandpaper will ruin the coating permanently

    Not too bothered about the anti fog coating, it's the straight cut type so rarely gets fogged up anyway

    Just more concerned about if it's possible to remove the tint
     
  4. Just sell it again at a higher price.

    Return the oakley visor and buy the Bauer x:100 visor. It is a clear visor with anti-fog and scratch which the oakley visor provides. As well, you can get 2 replacement visors for roughly $70 at sportchek
