Hello. I am a student doing a research project regarding innovation, at Copenhagen Business School. We are working on finding innovative ways for keeping the face dry while biking during the rain. The solution should keep the face dry without obstructing the vision or threatening the safety of the biker. We would really appreciate some of your solutions, given that in sailing you are dealing with the same problem in fighting the waves or the heavy rain.

Thank you all for your cooperation.

Full face mask?

I know on motorcycles a full face mask is helpful. A product we use on windshields [RAINEX] may also help. I believe they have a product for plexiglass too. Sailing often deals w salty spray and being a relatively green sailor, I get wet...too much some times!

I cross-countried on an old Harley a few years back, I wore a ski-face mask, a throat warmer and a good hat - worked all the way to Alsaka and back. Maybe you need to check a motorcycle site, going as slow as I do - you don't need anything but a good raincoat with a hood and visor.

Keeping your face dry? Being bundled up against the weather, the wind and rain on your cheek will be the only physical weather gauge you will have.
For you will feel the wind before you see it on the anemometer gauges.
But if you want to stay perfectly dry then stay indoors and out of the weather.
