Our main goal is to make people aware about this major issue : Air Pollution
Who We Are
We are a team of cyclists and amateur runners, for whom it was unthinkable to wear an anti-pollution mask during our daily commute.
After a while we start reflected on the air quality we are daily breathing.
Simple fact... That's not so pure... Isn't it ?
But wearing a mask...No way, to wear a mask !
" I'll be like Darth Vader, and it will be very weird and uncomfortable!"
That's what most of us thought...!
After thinking about the toxic inhalation of exhaust fumes during our bike trips through the busy traffic full of cars, buses and trucks,...
We finally found we were only breathing harmful toxic compounds for our lungs.
Doing sport is well advised to ventilate our bronchi, but not to contaminate them with chemical elements such as benzene evacuated by the exhausts ...
"So why not give it a try?
Let's try a mask on our way to work, and see if it's really efficient?"
After a week, we came along with an amazing result !
The team was really surprised by the efficiency, the lightness and the comfort of wearing a mask while cycling or running the city.
" The mask is absolutely not disturbing, you get used to, you don't even feel it, you just want to keep it, it really help!"
That's how we decided to help people to understand the meanings of wearing a mask while commuting in polluted cities.
A simple idea was born: "How can we provide a light, soft, comfortable, efficient and affordable pollution mask ? "
By then, we've start to think about the wearer and what do they really need to commute safely every day without having breathing issues.
First, we have selected the right fabrics by choosing relevant materials that meet the certifications standards for viral protection.
