    In a site, I saw a question about how many visors are put in a helmet of a F1 racing driver. Does any of you know something about it?

    At any one time there’s only 1 visor attached, but they have multiple rip-offs.

    I’d like to know if there’s anything special about the visor in F1 helmets that makes them different from others.

    One interesting thing I learned about the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is that the drivers use a clear visor with tinted tear offs to make the conversion to night.

    @lite992 in what aspect? Strength? Material? Construction? Special features?

    I know they’re (supposed to be) bullet-proof, literally. They test it with a handgun on 25cm distance.
