Wind catcher / Rearview mirror

Wind catcher

A problem emerges when we drive in rain--the water gathering on the rearview mirror affects the driver’s sight or even causes an accident. We revise the rearview mirror to settle the problem. The front air inlet gathers the airflow produced during the process of driving and accelerates it when it passes through the special passage. Also, the rain on the rearview mirror will be blown away when it passes the air outlet. Meanwhile, when passing the special passage, the rain drops from the bottom of the rearview mirror due to gravity without affecting the airflow. With Wind Catcher, we don’t have to worry about driving in rain any more.
