Have you ever been out riding on a scorching day and decided to take your helmet off because of the heat? This can open you up to many dangers while riding, but what if you could wear your helmet and stay cool on these hot days? A company out of India may have a solution.
Staying Cool While Riding: The Helmet Air Conditioner
We are still in the winter months here in Colorado, but very soon, temperatures will rise, and riding season will roar on for the rest of the year. Are you ready for it? The heat often causes motorcyclists to shed their protective gear, and though it is the right of every Coloradoan to choose what gear they wear when they ride, safety gear has some undeniable benefits. So, if there was a way to stay cool while wearing these safety devices, many riders could be saved from severe injury on the road. Enter BlueSnap.
The Indian company has created a miniature AC unit that you can strap to your helmet. It uses a water reservoir, a rechargeable battery and fan to cool your helmet up to 25 degrees while you’re riding. The device holds enough water to last two hours before requiring a refill, and it’s designed to break away in the event of a crash in order to prevent rider injuries. This low-tech device is only $25 at the moment, but an American release has yet to be announced. The company also plans to build a helmet with AC technology built in.
Would you use an air-conditioned helmet if one was available? Are there other products out there that can make your safety gear more comfortable? The attorneys who ride at Metier Law Firm will keep an eye out for these new devices, so you can have a more enjoyable ride.
