Rain and visors

Post by qcnr » Tue Nov 29, 2016 11:15 am

Road spray as well.
How do you keep this from reducing visibility to nearly 0.
Especially bad here, as it mostly rains during the winter...
Is there a type of Rain-X for helmet visors? That works well on
the car...
Any other tricks to try to get the rain/ roadspray to fly off the visor?

I bought a set of gloves once that had piece of a "Windscreen Wiper" built into the thumb/index finger web of the left glove. Very useful!

Maybe I'll try Rain-X, although I think I have some MER stuff that is
similar at home.

If you have a protective screen lower it till your visor gets a full blast ( only works with a decent bit of speed)

Anybody try the "Turbo Visor"? It looks silly and I should think with a bit of buffeting/crosswind it'll either break or pull your head off, but apparently it does work.

I tried Rain X (nothing sticks like Manchester drizzle) and it seemed to help but it needed applying just about every day :(

Or you can hang your head out to the side of the screen and use the wind to clear it.

I just use normal MER car polish.

Just apply in small circles then polish off with a clean dry cloth.

Works for me as I've been doing it for years with no problems. (thumbs)

The rain just runs off quite easily afterwards. :)
