My dianese lid is great in the CBs position, until it rains, and then I might as well be wearing this so, avoid.
try the Shuberth S1, quite light considering the flip down dark visor. They dont mist up and have good ventilation. Cheap as chips if like me you buy from Germanyhttps://ssl.kundenserver.de/s71033029.einsundeinsshop.de/sess/utn153eb7fe0722028/bs_shopdata/index.shopscript
I've got a Quantum F and don't have the problems you describe (sit fairly upright on Ducati Monster), try sticking a foggy mask in it ( the one that covers your nose and mouth and keeps them separate from your eyes IYSWIM). I find the vents in that lid are really good for keeping cool. The mask renders the chin vents useless though.
Nolan Classic flip front. Quite happy for upright riding (based on the D'Oh-Ville, a Piaggio X9 and an ET4)THB - I doubt I could go back to full face anyway now..... so I guess I'm going to be biased here.....

No helmet is necessary in the upright position - it is the upside down position that requires a helmet.(Sorry ! )

[B...well, the B*W flippy fronts are OK for upright riding. Noisy...but OK. I assume Schuberth are about the same. [/B]
ok now this may sound daft but have u contacted arai themselves, as they may be aware of this and could well have a solution?HOWEVER, if they arent aware of this issue u have, they would like to know how they can solve it, as they would like to avoid bad publicity of any kind, especially since VD has over 13,000 members, word of mouth recommendations or otherwise can have far reaching consequences. If for example each member of VD read this thread and mentioned it to 5 people who then mention it to another 5 people, u can see what i mean!mel :burnout:
on that front I may contact Phoenix- but not sure how much help they'll be.Arai's are superb helmets and I'd ALWAYS recommend them (they've saved my head enough times for me to do that without guile).
tut @ blokesstate the obvious to them n they still do wot u told them not to do lol!if phoenix wont be any help(chances r they will exchange ur lid) then do contact arai, im sure thye will be only too pleased to help sort ya probs out!!
