The Visorcat is a cleaning system for your visor.
Essential for riding in rain and snow and amazingly effective in keeping your visor bug-free in the
summer, the Visorcat is a great accessory to improve your safety in all conditions.
You wear the Visorcat on your left hand over the glove.
Fill the internal reservoir with the cleaning solution. The reservoir replenishes the integrated sponge (which can be removed for cleaning/replacement).
The kit includes the Visorcat (with integrated sponge) and a 50ml bottle of cleaning solution.
The cleaning solution is manufactured by “Shift-It” in the UK and does not contain any abrasives nor
petroleum products and so is safe to use on any helmet.
A “CE” mark signifies that a product complies with a specific EU directive.
There is no relevant
directive for the Visorcat product and so no “CE” mark can be applied for.
The Visorcat has been developed on many sizes of glove: it has both an adjustable and elastic strap for
fitting to all glove sizes.
The solution supplied with the kit is manufactured by “Shift-It” and is specifically designed for use on
helmets and visors. Visorcat recommend only this product or water although other helmet-safe products
could also be suitable.
The Visorcat moulding should provide years of use.

“Arrived at Le
Havre: fog. Visorcat kept the 'brouillard' at bay. Sun came out, so did small insects. Visorcat gave
them the brush-off. Sporadic outbursts; another clean sweep from Visorcat. 250 miles in 5.5 hours
through France. Why am I pleased with Visorcat? Because it works, and the biggest contribution to
accidents is not seeing where you are going: so full marks Visorcat!"
Jim Bettley, National Social Secretary, The BMW Club
I used my
Visorcat on my ride home from Kelso to Southampton in all sorts of changing weather and it worked a
" A great idea that really does work"
"The Visorcat was easy to fit and unobtrusive to
wear. Drizzle caused the visor to become dirty from spray off the cars in front. The wiper blades
cleaned the visor perfectly. Later, the visor collected a lot of insects. I used the sponge followed
by the wiper, which again cleaned the visor perfectly. This is an excellent piece of kit."
Niall Mackenzie, three times British Superbikes Champion
"I had a
run out last week at Donington which I thought would be a good test now summer is well and truly
here. I thought the Visorcat could work well on a track day as you quite often get splatted on your
first lap of your session then spend twenty minutes not being able to see properly. Coming in
obviously wastes time so your twenty minutes of track time can be chopped in half.
I found the
Visorcat easy to fit, doubling up the finger strap, and although the bugs were not too bad I found
it effective and easy to use as I tested it throughout the day. I replenished it every third session
but I was using it more than necessary. All in all I found it unobtrusive and very useful so hope
you are getting similar feedback from other testers. I'll definitely take it on any road runs this
British Dealer News:
"Tried your Visorcat at the weekend
(properly fitted!). Set off at quite a pace and, not being used to the device, thought I’d
probably not use it. Too busy concentrating on the road. Almost straight away my visor was splatted
by a juicy bug, right in the line of sight, so I was so forced to try out the Visorcat, and pleased
I did. Made a real difference."
John Mitchell, chairman, Motorcycle Action Group
"There are no
senses when aboard a motorcycle more important than vision so £30 on one of these could turn out to
be the best £30 you ever spent."
Dave Price, radio presenter:
"I think it's the best invention I
have seen for years and will greatly improve motorcycle enjoyment and safety."
Rennie Ritchie, former Staff Examiner, IAM:
"The Visorcat is an
essential and something I've come to rely on ... it provides the rider with better vision, which of
course leads to greater safety."
Tom Duncan, chairman, BMF Scotland/IAM member
"If you ride a
motorcycle you need a Visorcat. The device is excellent for removing road grime when used with the
solution that Visorcat supply ... in the last few days it has been getting warmer and the bugs are
out. The device actually clears the bugs off the visor as well.I wanted a visor cleaner that just
worked while I ride and it's now here. At £30 the Visorcat is cheap and there is now no excuse for
any rider not to have a clean visor while they are riding.”
Sam Manicom, motorcycle travel author:
"I’m chuffed with
the thing. It’s a gizmo which at first looks rather cumbersome! It fits over your left glove
and I thought it’d get in the way, snag things and generally be uncomfortable. Far from it.
A small fluid reservoir fits on top of the hand. That leads to a wiper and sponge which
sit nicely on the right edge of your glove. Its aim is to clean your visor as you ride.
up - it works very well. The time I’ve used the sponge aspect the most is on those cruddy road
days when the surface is damp enough for cars to fling muck up at your visor, but there’s not
enough moisture to wick the gunk away.
A couple of swoops of the sponge and then a swipe
with the wiper and you have clear views again. So much better than a damp road grimed glove and I
suspect that I’m doing far less damage to my visor. Bonus both ways.
Am I happy with
it? Yep! Nice design. Like it!"
Bob Crawley, Kelso, Scotland / IAM
“For the great majority of the
time riding through the normal UK crud, rain, wet roads, grime, salt, Visorcat does its job
admirably. It does what it is supposed to, it keeps your visor clean! The Visorcat is growing on me
to the extent that I would not now go out without it ... I am now up to 37,000 miles with the Cat
attached. It's been all over the UK in all weathers and has worked very well. Even gave it a look at
Romania last summer on an extended European tour. Those around me on a regular biking basis can
vouch for my continual and appreciative use of your product. It is still in good nick given its use."
Laurence Gough, Reading
"I think the Visorcat is amazing - easily
one of the best motorcycle accessories, well along with the Pinlock system... the design is a
masterpiece. It works amazing with all kinds of crud and grit which gloves etc just make worse, and
Vee wipes can't deal with. I feel that it should almost be a legal requirement the difference is so
much. And it's not just winter either, you can use it in the summer as well for bugs.... it's all
year useful!! Thanks very much for the great product!"
Richard De La Salle, Basildon
"Thanks for a brilliant product,
makes riding in rain and glup almost fun again ... well worth it and would highly recommend"
Don Pierce, Holt, Norfolk:
"First of all a huge THANK YOU for
including an additional bottle of visor cleaning fluid complete with Christmas label. That was a
very nice touch.Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you but I was waiting for the right
weather conditions to try out the Visorcat. Yesterday was just perfect. Occasional rain, lots of
spray including grit & salt. The Visorcat dealt with it all beautifully and without any need to
stop or even slow down. It was a little bit awkward to use at first but once I got the technique
right it was perfection. I found that it worked best with the elastic loop around the base of my
index finger. I was not aware of it being there and there was no interference with operation of the
clutch or the various switches.There were no problems putting the gloves on or taking them off, so
this is one very happy customer.Regards and a very happy Christmas."
"It’s a godsend when the bugs start
spreading their innards across your field of vision."
"By removing dirt before it dries and hardens, this
nifty little gadget also makes it a lot easier to give your visor a thorough clean when you get
home. When I first tried the Visorcat I didn't think I'd be leaving it on my glove permanently, but
now I've got used to wearing and using it, I'm allowing it to stay put."
Adventure Bike Rider:
"If there's one thing I hate when I'm riding
it's a visor covered in crap impairing my vision. Why is it that when kamikaze bugs decide to end it
all, they so do right in my eye line? ...A simple visor wipe fixed into a glove doesn't always do
the trick. That's why I like the Visorcat."
Robert Cook, Lesmahagow
"Just a quick e-mail to say thank you. I
asked if you could get a replacement Visorcat sent to me asap and you did just that. I’m off
on Monday to go right around the coast of our wonderful Scotland … I feel so much better knowing I
have my Visorcat with me. Some lucky sod got my old one I lost in Moffat - hope it’s put to
good use and keeps them as safe as it has me!"
Sharon Airey, BMF
"Good purchase and one of the most useful tools
Paul Crossan, charity fundraiserwww.lorarideforMS.com
you ride in bad weather, this is a must - goodbye dirt! I know this will make a difference to my
riding! No more smearing dirt over your visor and almost blinding you! This is a product that I’ve
wished for so many times and now it’s here."
Fiona Robertson, the Green Welly, Tyndrum, Scotland
was a total godsend today - considering the crap I rode on today, it was just amazing. Well worth
the money, and so simple to use. Sponge needs a wash now - off I trot to see how to remove it ..."
Fraser Quin, Observer, Edinburgh and District Advanced Motorcyclists, after the end of
his Visorcat test period.
"I was at the Jedburgh Race for Reivers event this
morning. Weather at 8am was atrocious, 1cm of snow for 20 miles, very scary. Also, very mucky - and
all I could think about on the way was I need a Visorcat, I can’t see a thing!"
