Beat the smog with Tucano Urbano

Beat the smog with Tucano Urbano

Every rider is aware of the safety benefits of wearing a well-made helmet, resilient clothing and tough gloves and boots, but less are aware of the health impacts from poor air quality while riding in urban areas. With some of the UK’s largest cities hovering around or above the EU’s pollution limits, many urban riders are dangerously exposed to high levels of air pollutants. Tucano Urbano has the solution, with its range of antismog masks.

In Tucano Urbano’s typical innovative style, three effective antismog masks are available for riders to avoid breathing in harmful pollutants, finding the perfect balance between comfort and air filtering, without impeding style.

 

TOP SMOG

Brand new to the Fall/Winter 2018/2019 collection, the TOP SMOG is an antismog mask with electrostatic and active carbon filter, designed specifically to be used with jet and demi-jet helmets. The TOP SMOG comes with two, CE-Approved FFP3 filters included, providing the maximum level of protection against high levels of fine dust particles, plus solid and liquid aerosols and solvents. FFP3 filters protect against materials in concentrations up to 50x the occupational exposure limit, and replacements are also available to buy separately. The TOP SMOG mask has a neoprene outer with mesh inserts for optimal ventilation, along with an anti-condensation valve. The mask is easy to open and close using just one hand for convenience.

Size: One size

RRP: £34.99

The filter cover is made from washable and super-breathable technical mesh, designed for comfort and practicality.
