Does Rainpal® scratch your visor? 150+ reviews on a single site on Vee-wipe a glove wiper show no concern about scratching and Rainpal® will be made from a similar material even removing dirt off a visor. The difference is Rainpal® let's you keep both hands on your steering. How? By using your thumb to control a single wipe, continuous adjustable speed, adjustable delay wipe just as in a car for more details see our Q&Asection. Most Visors are scratch resistant Feedback suggests in the dry that a good visor cleaner many of which evaporate and soften and remove bugs and do not scratch. Scratches are caused by gloves embedded with grit but Rainpal® you do not need to use your gloves therefore there should be no scratching. Easy to clean even in traffic without taking your helmet off. Keep Rainpal® on all the time to provide excellent vision in the dry or the rain.

Rainpal® stays on your visor no matter what speed you ride at How? we use tape so strong it replaces screws with trucks etc being made from it providing far more than enough adhesion. For example,3MRainpal® is incredibly sleek measuring just 1.6 cm in depth by 1.9 cm in height the adhesive strip is covered with a slim mounting plate in just one click Rainpal® attaches or detaches even if the riders is wearing gloves. Additionally Rainpal®'s wiper shaft detaches with one click. Most visors sit about 1 cm higher than the viewing aperture therefore riders only loose 0.6 cm of top vision. Rainpal® will ship with 2 strips and mounts so you can use Rainpal® on two visors/helmets, extra sets can be purchased separately.
Visor liquid washer to rinse your visor which sits above the main Rainpal® and is also detachable. Easy to see clear your visor in drizzle, road or salt spray add a little water we know goes a long way towards clear vision with a wiper.
Rainpal® reduces interior fogging. Fogging/misting of a visor is caused by temperature differences. Rain is generally colder as it has fallen from height. Rainpal® drastically reduces fogging/misting of a visor on the same basis as the colder rain is wiped away thereby reducing the temperature difference between the inside and outside of your visor. Not only initially but as the rain has been wiped away there will be far less windchill therefore reducing the temperate difference between the inside and outside of the visor as your journey carries on. Fogging is caused by a large temperature difference and large humidity difference between the warmer more humid air from the rider's breath on the inside surface of the visor compared to the much colder temperature of rain wich is cooler than the atmosphere at ground level as it has fallen from high altitude. The rain therefore cools the inside of the visor to a lower temperature than normal. The rider's breath and face both produce heat and the breath humidity. When this much colder rain sits on the outside of the visor and the warm humid air inside the visor hits these colder spots a micro climate occurs with a micro reaction of fogging which expands under the rain drops inside rapidly produces large areas of fogging on the inside. In much the same way in a car when the blower fron the windscreen is not turned we can see the windscreen area that is being wiped will fog a lot less than the area not being wiped especially on the passenger area which in most cases has a larger unwiped area. Rainpal® wipes away rain quickly therefore reducing the temperature difference therefore reducing fogging. This is a scientific fact.
