Hi, anyone else having trouble getting a good fit with their sunglasses whilst wearing a Kask Vertigo?
I usually wear a pair with the arm that sweeps out along the side of the face rather than fitting close to the side of the head ie- Oakley type but I'm having trouble with getting them to stay in place . Also I think I would be better with a pair with a shorter arm.
Anyone help?
Mick

    Have you changed your sunglasses since you tried the helmet on or did you not try it with sunglasses?

    Maybe go back to your old ones if they were okay.

    I swopped my vertigo for a protone due to the same issue, tried quite a few different glasses ( of my own and in the lbs ) and couldn't get a comfy fit. Glasses fit perfectly with the protone and it's a very comfy lid.

    Vertigo helmets don't play nicely with, for example, Oakley Radarlock. It's not awful, just not great. So I swapped out to the Oakley Jawbreaker and they played very nicely indeed. Have a Protone now and they are a bit better again.

    I've got a Vertigo and use Radarlocks and agree it's not ideal but definitely workable. I put glasses on before giving ratchet a final turn and all is usually good.

    Radarlocks here too - there's a point where the arms fit nicely through the back. I position the glasses before securing the back as above. Once in the right place they're very comfy.
