Wish there was a way to stay cooler on your next ride? If you’re willing to think outside the box, Q-Fog provides an interesting take on onboard cooling. Essentially a bike mounted mister, cyclists can click the lever periodically sending a wave of mist into their frontal region. From there, evaporative cooling does the rest, cooling the body as the water evaporates. Who knows, for climates that are really hot this could be useful.
Check out the apparatus next.
The sprayer unit is made from ABS plastic and mounts to the handlebar in 4 different positions with a quick release mount. In order to place the mist exactly where you want it the sprayer head rotates 360°. 100ml of water is stored in a polypropylene container under the stem which offers over 300 clicks per fill up. At 7-8 clicks every five minutes, Q-Fog says this is sufficient for a 2-3 hour ride.
What do you think? Is this something you would ever consider to mount on your bike?
