Instead, the Feher ACH-1 has a real air-conditioner that uses a thermoelectric pump to dehumidify and cool the air. That means no fogging up, although the injection-moulded, quick-release visor does have an anti-fog coating.
Cool air is circulated around your head via a fan that blows the air through Feher’s patented Tubular Spacer Fabric. It’s like a honeycomb helmet liner. There are no standard air vents.

Feher patents invention
Feher invented and patented the technology in the humid conditions of Hawaii.
It has been used to cool the seats in Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ferrari, Lexus and GM cars.
He says the cool air in the ACH-1 does not give the rider an ice-cream headache.
While the AC unit at the back of the fibreglass helmet is a bit bulky, the helmet still only weighs 1.4kg.
That’s because there is no heavy battery inside. Instead, there is a plug which you attach to a cable that runs to your bike’s battery.
It has a quick disconnect cord with a switch to turn the AC unit on and off.
You can also plug it into 12V sockets or portable battery packs with an adapter. A 3000mAh battery should power the helmet for around two hours, 6000mAh for four hours and 12000mAh six hours.
The helmet comes in sizes S (53-54cm) to 2XL (63-64cm) in gun metal, pearl white, gloss black, matte black and silver with a one-year warranty.
