It’s an age-old motorcycle problem that motorcyclists around the world have learnt to live with. We are referring to the ever irksome water on visor problem when riding in the rain. RainX attempted to solve it by accelerating the water flowing on the helmet’s visor, but now, it looks like there is a better way: a helmet visor wiper (duh!). Designed and developed by British bloke Adam Aarons, Rainpal is the answer to our question of why motorcycle helmet don’t have wiper like cars’ windscreen do. Well, it has now, or rather, it can have now – thanks to Rainpal.

Previously on Indiegogo which unfortunately didn’t take off, Adam has taken Rainpal to another crowdfunding platform, Fundrazr, to pitch this ingenious solution, citing instant messaging as the main reason of the switch. Rainpal comprises of the wiper system with a lone wiper and spring loaded shaft, and a mounting plate that attaches to the top of the visor with adhesive tape. Adam has gone to length to ensure the wiper system will be securely attached at all times, while still remain easily removable when you don’t need it.

The stick measures just 1.3 cm by 1.3 cm, so it won’t obscure your view in anyway and so are the wiper and wiper shaft, which Adam believes are thinnest in the market to date. Despite its slim form factor, Rainpal is packed with a motor, batteries, LED and other electronics necessary for the system to work. Speaking of batteries, it boasts a swappable battery pack good for 90 minutes in continuous wipe, or up to 180 minutes when on a two-second delay mode.

The system has been tested at speed of up to 160 km/h (100 mph) and it is activated via a button on the hardware itself, or a wireless kit, which is designed to be fitted on the bike’s handlebar. This latest iteration now comes with the ability to squirt water, much like cars’ windscreen washer. If you think Rainpal Motorcycle Helmet Wiper is the good fit for you, then hop over to Fundrazr to order yours. Prices start at $49.99. Keep going for the product pitch video.

    1. Yeah. We read. But in our defence, obviously, we can’t be digging into every single product’s background, much less pull a background check the people involved. Plus, a motorcycle helmet wiper seems totally plausible. We would never have guess Aaron would be scam artist, not an inventor. Remind us not to pick anything off a shady funding site ever.

  1. Mike thank you for the article, check out http://www.Rainpal.net and https://www.facebook.com/rainpalwiper/ for updates we have a hater who failed in real life so spends his time attention seeking on the internet using a false name. The real person behind the trool posting Cansa is a failed business man called Craig Fitzgerald whose company Nobcat IT was compulsory struck-off as per Companies House Records offiicial UK records https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08075959/ filing-history his name and and address are on the link. He tries to hide his name as he knows he is lying.. When he is not spreading hate he spreads obscene images on the internet worse than his website http://www.cansa.co.uk You can imagine the type of person he is. Everyone can make up their mind who they believe, clearly he is a lonely loser where the internet is a place he takes out his hate.
