Okay Vaders, I'm just getting around to installing a fan in my helmet, and I'm wondering about how to get the most efficient placement to prevent fogging. I'm attaching it to the lower grill, of course. Is it better to have the fan blowing OUT the hot air built up inside, or to have it so it's pulling fresh air in?

What are your experiences and what has worked for you?

....you want to exhaust the hot air out...therefore set up the exhaust side of the fan venting out of the helmet. Pulling in fresh air without exhausting the hot air accomplishes nothing....

Which is why I had my old helmet set up like this:

Bottom fan pulled air in -- top fan to blow it out. It worked just great, too. I also cut the foam to form a chanel to allow the air to flow up and over my head to the fan, pulling it right across my face.

I got the same set up as darienvader,works great no fogging and does keep alot of air flowing around your head...
But this is kinda hard to do unless you have a C/A or recast of one...
No room in the top in a deluxe.
