Rainpal - 1

Riding in rains is one of the most difficult tasks with constant water droplets and mist/fog forming on the visor and blocking the vision. But there is one company that has come to the rescue of us motorcyclists. Our pal to the rescue is called Rainpal: The Road Ahead Is Clear, an automated wiper system that has been engineered in India, designed in Czech Republic and manufactured in China.

Before we dig into more details, here is an official video that explains the function, installation and features of Rainpal:

Rainpal is scheduled for launch at a promotional price of USD 59. What do you get for USD 59? Here is a list of key features of Rainpal:

  • Adjustable wiper speed
  • Delay wipe
  • One click jet water spray/wiper for clearing your visor when riding in drizzle sprays and a single return wipe. The water jet will be offset to the left of centre so not to detract from the rider’s central vision. The water will be sprayed immediately the button is pressed and there will be a 1 second delay for the wiper in order for the water to spread. Rainpal will have an internal water reservoir and a connection for a larger external reservoir (sold separately)
  • Easily fits and detaches in about 2 seconds
  • The watertight seal of visor is maintained as clips are only 1mm thick and enclosed by the rubber rim of the visor aperture
  • Can be used with Pinlocks
  • Lightweight at 150g about 8% of the weight of an average helmet
  • Small size at only 1.3cms in width and height therefore negligible drag
  • Soft inner rubber cushions prevent any vibration, rattle noise
  • Air gaps between cushions so negligible drag or uplift
  • Elastic drive as opposed to metal belt for vibration, rattle, noise free use
  • Flexible similar to a washing machine water pipe enables fitment to most full face helmets
  • A massive 140 degress of cleared vision
  • Drastically reduces fogging/misting of the visor as the colder rain is wiped away. How, fogging is caused by the temperature difference and humidity on the inner surface of the visor as the rain is normally colder on the outside as it has fallen from higher cooler atmospheric levels especially compared to the warmer more humid air inside a visor which is being warmed by the wearer’s breath and face both producing heat and the breath humidity. When rain sits on the outside of the visor the warm humid air inside the visor hits these colder areas under the rain drops producing condensation which forms fogging a bit like on a bus in winter as there are many people breathing and creating warmth. Rainpal removes rain quickly therefore reducing fogging.

Rainpal_Explained

  • Less glare from car headlights and/or street lights in the rain at night
  • No more frozen rain covering on the visor when riding in freezing mist
  • Less freezing cold air blowing in your face by lifting your visor to clear the fogging/misting
  • No more dry face and potential aging from freezing cold air
  • Extensively tested up to 160kmh in Ansys
  • Fail-safe inner suction cups as the cups cannot be pulled through when the visor is closed and also 3 suction cups provide grip for when the visor is open at up to 25kmh
  • On-board or wireless controls (subject to which model)
  • Illuminating LEDS by each clamp for easy night time fitment
  • Central LED and fluorescent coating on controls for night time use
  • 90 minutes of battery life in continous wipe and much 180 minutes with a small delay wipe. Rainpal can be charged at the office via USB for the journey home or even on-board if your bike has a USB
