Default Helmet/Visor

I just got a new Reebok 7k helmet and Bauer HS22 visor. I am wondering where exactly the screws should be in relation to the visor slots. Front, middle, or towards the back?

it really depends on how the visor fits and how close in relation you want it to your face.

The further away from the helmet it is the better ventilation you'll get. So less likely to fog up but more space for a stick to get under your visor.

I'd start closer to the helmet and if it fogs move it away gradually til fogging isn't an issue. All personal preference though, a lot of guys toss it as far away as they can right off the bat.

I know someones gonna say it's only a few milimeters, but one of my buddies got a stick under his visor and seriously messed up his right eye... maybe those mms would have made a difference?

I started mine right in the middle and adjusted until I found my preference...which was pretty much in the middle. Also depends on your facial shape and size. I have a Bauer 4500 with an Oakley Pro Straight.
