water cooled helmet/jacket/pants

there has got to be a water cooled helmet/jacket or similar on the market. small pipes throughout the jacket, small pump moving it around to cool it off in the wind, or through ice pack.

im dissapointed the motorcycle manufacturers havent done this yet?

its summer where i am. i get to work all sweaty in the morning. it shouldnt be any mor euncomfortable than a jacket anyway. the pipes should be really soft and small so as to not becoem a hassle.

if it pops, youll be just as wet as when you were sweaty.

i dont want to cool down a race horse, just reduce my discomfort a little, so im not talking a swimming pool here, just probasbly a littre of water moving around your body.

to make it more effective, let it flow through dry ice somewhere on the bike

it can be either the jacket or the helmet, but if both can be included that would be great.

you do realise, that the human body has its own cooling system...sweat.

works on the exact same principle as a water cooling system, say in our bikes/cars.

hence i can only assume leathers are vented to utilise this.

So you want to add a motor, hoses, power source, heat exchanger, and the mass of the water to a helmet and/ or jacket without worrying about added weight or bulkiness.

Ok.

Helmets already have vents for cooling and jackets are perforated to allow airflow. Get some warm weather base layers to help regulate body temp.

Trying to use tiny hoses would limit the thermal exchange from your head to the water and would decrease the impact absorbency of the helmet if the same size shell is used.

It would really only be needed approaching high 30 degrees centigrade. And at that point, you should probably take a car.

Its called a camel pack, drop it in the fridge before hot ride.



Spidi makes a suit that hold one in the hump.

as above ,

if you are really serious about it a tshirt then the refrigerated camelback with some ice cubes thrown in.....is about as good as it gets. (under the jacket as close to the skin as possible)

motogp does not seem to much more advanced than above in its cooling tech....

riding with a wet long sleeve tshirt on helps also for about 15 mins....used to spray myself with a water bottle while riding when in SE Asia.

anyway, riding to work gives you a "presentation" problem if the above is tried.

hi all thanks for the feedback. water smells better than sweat, hence id like to avoid using my body's natural coolant. the camel pack is an option, even it if means i put a ton of ice and some nice juice in there and sip on it when it gets really hot. of my 25 minute commute i need to cool down for the last 10 minutes, so that should still work.

to trim my suggestion down a bit, lets leave out the helmet, lets only focus on the jacket. its already heavy so the impact is reduced.

how about putting crushed dry ice in my pockets?

Just thought of this (just woke up and catching up on threads) - buy a mini fridge and keep your jacket in there over night and then when you ride in the morning it's nice a cool already. No cooling tubes, no drenching yourself before hand.
You chilled the first bit of the ride so that by the middle to end, you're normal or just a little warm. Plus in the cooler days, you still have a mini fridge to store tasty beverages.

So what I'm trying to say is: that camelpack idea seems like a good one.

If i was that uncomfortable I'd Take my car.

Technically of you move dry ice on public roads you'll need a DG sign on all four corners. Lol

Okay...what about a jacket that has tubes inside of it, all over, with a liquid such as antifreeze that can get really cold without freezing. So you can put your jacket in the freezer the night before and have maybe 45 min of cool riding until the antifreeze in the tubes warms up??

Lol

I think what you're missing is the under armour suit. The one that absorbs sweats while keeping you cool. Alpinestars sells them. riding with it on and my jacket helps by a few degree. I wouldn't see myself riding in 90+ degree without it.

I agreed with the previous comment. If you can't handle it, take the car. Gotta pay to play.
