I know that sunglasses have grades from 1 to 4 - driving/riding with grades 1 to 3 is legal, but not with grade 4, the darkest, intended for skiing etc.
Do helmet visors have this grading?
I've got a Shoei Neotec modular with a built in flip down sun visor, which complies with ANSI Z80.3-2010 Standard for non-prescription eyewear - so it' should be OK.

Always use one in daylight. Never been tugged for that or any mention made of it.
I think they have better things to do.

Raybans are the ones to have, especially for riding or driving. A great disappointment when I had to wear glasses full time. Still reacting glasses not a bad substitution. Spring is not far off now, looking forward to nice sunny days to come.

My wife and I both have reacting glass visors on our helmets. I was a bit worried at the start because I thought that going into tunnels etc would be a problem, but they are OK. They don't change that quickly, but night and day riding is not a problem. I have always wanted to be pulled over for a dark visor, cover it with my jacket and pull it off to reveal a clear one!
