Been saying since I was a kid that I was amazed no one had designed that. Whether it works is another matter. Wouldn't object to trying one tho.

The wiper looks a little flimsy for my liking, not a bad idea though :)
Live forever or die trying.

It's not the tiny wiper for me, it's the huge bar thing at the top of the visor.

I can see it scratching the visor particularly on days after rain when your hit by dirty spray from the roads.

With Mr Fro on that. How much drag is that going to add to the hemet.
Will the suckers keep it attached?
But like the idea of a wiped visor.

Was just thinking that I'm sure I've seen gloves that specificly have an extra bit of rubber on the index fingers for this very reason..

I just turn my head slightly and use the wind speed to shove all the water off.. Looks like I'm doing neck exercises :lol:

Anyway, this thing is just a crowfunding scam rather than a legit product.

The "creator" got really arsey on Facebook when people starting criticising his idea and asking challenging questions, he ended up saying everyone on the internet is negative and he doesn't need any people like that buying his product.

So yeah I won't be buying one!!
You can drive a Ferrari at 17 but can only ride a bike with 47bhp, seems fair.
