    Default Interesting....🤔

    cute video and it does look like this one could work. Have seen others but never that good. I avoid ryding in the rain but would be nice to have one so as not having to turn from side to side and have the windspeed clear the sheild.....

    From what I can find out, it is not available for sale yet. Their web site has a sign-up to get information about when it will be marketed. Looks like a good option for wet weather riding. I know some plastic windscreens can take the abuse of a wiper but most cannot. I wonder what effects Wipey would have on a plastic face shield.....? Jim

    It's a nicely done product, but I have mixed feelings about it. Someone spent a lot of time and money developing this unit. It would be practical for someone that tours a lot and gets caught in the rain miles from his destination. For a day tripper, just don't go on a ride when rain is inevitable. As shown in the video, I use Rain-X for Plastic. Works fine.

    I wish him luck in his project.

    How does it attach? All but one of the helmets seemed to have some sort of attachment mount. But, the last one did not.

    Never mind. I looked at the bottom of the webpage.

    Humm.

    Long time ago you had to order them from the back pages of your comic books. Now you get them from the Internet. I have rode all day long in rain before with no problem. I don't use a windshield. A curved face shield will shed the water as long as you are moving. Turn your head slightly and the water blow off the shield. The worst problem with riding in rain is when you stop and the shield fogs up. Some gloves have a wiper built in the back side or on the thumb and that is sometimes handy.

    Got thousands of miles riding in rain on this helmet and shield or others exactly like it.
