As you can see in the video above, Mr. Sandeep Dahiya has created a Harley Davidson air-conditioned helmet called ‘Vatanukul’.The cooling mechanism allows the rider to lower the temperature (up to 12 degrees lower than the outside temperature). However, it can also be increased if needed. The AC unit is connected to the helmet and worn by the rider like a small backpack (almost 1.8kg). This external device draws 12 volts of current from the bike battery to offer to cool. This ‘air-conditioner’ uses solid-state cooling and does not require any water. In future variants, the AC can be used for jackets as well.

He claims that this hardware can be retrofitted into any helmet. The total weight added to the helmet is only up to 150 grams. The new AC helmet will be offered through AeeDEA.
