      Raced twice now at two different tracks and have experienced what is becoming a problem and looking to see what others are doing to over come the issue!

      I am 61 and unfortunately I wear glasses. While driving the kart, and here in Florida it gets pretty hot, and us drivers get sweaty, my glasses always slide down my nose. I can’t wear a strap on them since they have to be put on AFTER the helmet is on. Any other ideas other than contacts?

      thanks

      tape on the bridge, or one of those breathe rite things on your nose to keep them in place?  dont wear glasses so dont have much to offer.

      I had similar problems with my glasses and my eyes are dry from allergys almost every day of the year so i cant wear contacts either.  The best solution i have found is rudyproject wrap around glasses with adjustable rubber nose and ears.  I have the rydon’s with my RX in racing red and i have never been happier.

      I initially bought them to stop fogging but they are amazingly stable even while racing in 105 degree heat with the usual sweat.

      Its also a huge plus to be able to see my peripherals clearly where my regular glass would just be a mix of blur and frame

      Croakies ARC System. The cable may well still be useless in your situation. But the cable removes without removing the thick rubber anchors that fit around the arms of the glasses. These are unbelievably grippy; and sandwiched between your head and the helmet, I would bet those suckers aren’t going anywhere.

      My glasses have kind of “sport” arms that are entirely covered in grippy rubber. It seems to work well with them sandwiched tightly between the helmet and my head. I’ve never had them slide down my nose while racing, they actually don’t even rest on my nose at all with the way they’re stuck by the helmet.

      You could get one of those helmets that tilts up/down.  That would allow you to have your glasses on (with the straps) and get the helmet on your noggin.  Then flip down the front face shield.

      not a great link- but he shows the ‘modular’ helmet and he uses it because he can have his glasses on and then flip it down.

      Make sure you find one that’s SNELL rated before spending big bucks.
