Even a well vented helmet gets pretty warm as the temperatures rise. A new product called Airhead Cool Spray promises to cool you right back down.
You use the little bottle to apply a few sprays to your scalp at the start of your bike ride which takes a few seconds. It is designed to keep you cool for up to an hour, but you can re-apply as required if on a longer ride.
It could be a really effective solution for commuters as it is designed to work even if air isn’t flowing through the helmet. Therefore, even if you’ve got a helmet with minimum ventilation, or your stopped at lights, you’ll still get the cooling effect which helps to cut down perspiration.
The product is anti-pruritic meaning it removes any itchiness that you may experience through sweating and through contact with the helmet.
The Airhead costs £9.49 and for that you get a 30ml bottle which provides approximately 300 sprays. This should last a long time.
