History of Cool helmet
There are several efforts have been made to make the helmet cool. Few notable inversions are as follows:
- Sandeep Dahiya’s Vatanukul- Extended DC powered, solid-state cooling delivers AC like feeling inside Helmet.
- Hyderabad’s trio techies(from VNR Vignana Jyothi Institute of Engineering and Technology) invention of the cool helmet.
- PK Sundarajan’s revamped col helmet(this one)
Producer, designer and owner PK Sundarajan (IIT graduate)revamped the idea of the traditional helmets. It not only protects the head now but also gives comfort to the rider during the journey in hard conditions.
They have created 50+ prototypes before coming up with this model. This gear is a huge potential in the open market worldwide.
Full face Helmet or half helmet
To make the ride little comfortable during the long journey and the regular journey, do not take a full-face helmet, they tend to go for half helmets. Some of them are really fancy. But as far as road safety is concerned, Bikers always need to wear a full-face helmet to get rid of any side effects of accidents.
On the other hand, in a full-face helmet, the rider always feels less oxygen due to low air pass. This creates a suffocating feeling.
Riders always needed to choose a tradeoff between suffocating feeling or unpleasant or fatal accidents.
