GEAR

Someone has invented a wiper for bike helmets, again.

But the Rainpal might just actually work.

This new addition to the ever increasing canon of ‘getting rain away from visor’ devices was designed in the Czech Republic and is currently being manufactured in China.

Coming in a neat, carry-case and being battery operated, the Rainpal fits over the top of your existing visor and according to the designers can withstand speeds in excess of 150 km/h – thanks to tiny suction cups and clamps.

Rain Pal

Just like your car windscreen wiper, this motorcycle helmet version comes with adjustable speeds (wirelessly controlled) and wash jets.

Starting from £59, this is – of course – a crowdsourced project. So if you like what you see and want to add your name to the long list of people who have put money behind contraptions that aim to deter rain from a bikers’ face then you can do so here.

    MotoFire tell me that after an hour of filtering through glowing brake lights in constant drizzle with a fogging visor. I was even tempted to go for a heated visor they use on Skidoos!

    I like the concept but suspect visor will leak from top where it connects

    Don’t bother. It’s not even close to prototype, another 6 mos away from any production but the real downside is that should you question Mr Aaron on any detail he will bite your head off in a very rude/crude email response, threaten you with a police harassment charge, block you from all communications and then publically call you mentally unstable, not normal only after one simple question as to when I could expect delivery! Good luck if one should ever try to get a refund based on their guarantee but the customer service SUCKS!
