  • Under Helmet Cooling

    It is that time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere when hot weather makes riding a challenge. I get heat stroke quite easily and had my first incident yesterday. :-(

    What are your tricks for under helmet cooling for the hot months? I don't want to change my helmet as it is the best fitting helmet I have found for my head. I already use cooling towels, change my riding time, keep water and electrolytes with me but at times I can't do anything about riding at the hottest point of the day.

    Unfortunately I have not found anything that goes under the helmet that I am completely happy with.
    I have to keep 3 horses ridden all summer in South Carolina and it is a challenge.
    So far the best thing I have found is cutting a dish sponge to fit and then freezing it.
    Wrap it in a baggie to keep it from dripping and stick it under your helmet.
    I have an ice vest it is absolutely the best thing I have ever bought for the heat, It keeps me cool for close to 2 hours.

      I have something that works a little bit.

      It is the Omni Freeze Neck Gaiter from

      It is very thin, I can cover a lot of my face too if I want to, and it fits under my helmet.

      It is not as good as ice but freezing the top of my head can bring on tension headaches.
