Author Topic:   Helmet air inlet
posted March 26, 2002 08:03 AM
Has anyone made an air inlet for thier helmet? My helmet doesnt have the inlet for the air blower systems, and I dont want to buy a new one(its only a year old).
I was thinking of using a AN -12 or -14 bulkhead fitting and drilling a hole through the left side by my chin.(id take the helmet off first of course). I could then just push the air hose on like a regular system.

Are there any kits out there? OR any other sugestions.

If you drill a hole in your helmet, you'll create a weak point. That's no big deal until a good wreck when you bounce your chin off the steering wheel and the helmet breaks at the hole and, subsequently, your face bounces off the wheel.

Then you'll have to make a "food-inlet system" for eating liquid meals while your broken jaw heals.

Just my 2 cents, I could be wrong, though.

F.A.S.T. (Fresh Air Systems Technologies, Inc) modifies helmets for fresh air. I have a Sidewinder RX8 and it isn't as good as it's made out to be. I caught a rock and need a new one, and after talking to these guys at PRI, I think that I will have them work on it.
