The AC system in the helmet will gain power either from the battery of the motorcycle through a switchable disconnect cord or from integrated battery packs which can be sold separately.

By using a thermoelectric pump like the one to cool down seats in cars, the patented air-conditioned helmet can circulate cooled, filtered air widely throughout the whole interior. Besides, the patented Tubular Space Fabric inside, which looks like a honeycomb liner helps the helmet provide consistent and optimal temperature.

According to Feher:

That temperature variance will be more significant in higher temperatures and can be up to ten to fifteen degrees cooler.

Keeping your head cooler will make your body feel less impacted by the heat and make for a more comfortable ride in hot conditions than riding with your regular helmet.
