Reduced interior fogging. Why does a car windscreen mist more at the edges than the centre even without heating on? Answer less temperature difference. Try it for yourself. Next time you are in a car and it is raining turn off the windscreen blower and observe which area of the windscreen is first to have mist/interior fog. Fogging first occurs on the passenger side at the top side arc where the wiper does not wipe on the passenger side no matter if the wipers are for left-hand drive or right-hand drive cars. This arc area is the largest surface area not being wiped by a wiper where as the wiped area remains fog free for far longer. This is not by chance, car manufacturers have put a lot of thought and design into this process and do not want this to happen on the driver's side of the windshield so design wipers accordingly to avoid an unwiped area on the driver's side which will fog. Take a look at a car wipers next time in rains. This is also apparent on buses where the side windows fog faster than the windshield even with the windshield blower off. In the same way if your visor is wiped from rain it will have less interior fogging. Proof that Rainpal® reduces interior fogging of your visor. Interior fogging is caused by the temperature difference between the interior and exterior of the motorcycle helmet visor so if you reduce this temperature difference by wiping away rain you reduce fogging. Rain has fallen from great height is colder than the air at ground level therefore the outside of the motorcycle helmet visor becomes very cold if the rain is allowed to remain. If it is wiped away the outside temperature is not as cold reducing the temperature difference and in addition there is much less wind chill therefore again reducing the temperature difference and therefore much less interior fogging. Do riders really need a wiper? Well wipers are always the best method to provide the clearest vision that's why they are on cars, buses, trucks, trains, planes even CCTV's that do not move. Rainpal® fits all visors below 24cms in a direct line from one anchor point to the other anchor point, except very curved visors which hardly exist in developed countries due to optical requirements.
