8. Duct Tape Visor


This is probably one of the oldest tricks in the book – particularly for people whose commute from work is westward – but it still bears mentioning. Placing an inch-wide strip of black tape across the top of a helmet’s visor will help to block out those painful rays of the sun in the early evening. Yes, it does restrict your vision a tad, but being able to tilt your head down slightly and get the sun temporarily out of your eyes is priceless. When the sun is high in the sky, you can store the tape on the back of your helmet.
