Air pollution levels in the major Asian cities are dangerously high at the moment, with the Air Quality Index reaching hazardous levels in many locations. One of the worst-affected demographics is two-wheeler riders, who have to face this choking pollution on a daily basis. Now, however, there is some respite with Gurugram-based Mavox Helmets launching its new FX30 model.
What’s special about this helmet? It uses an activated charcoal filter in its front vents to filter the air that you breathe. Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to open up its pores. As a result of this, it can absorb airborne particles as well as chemical pollutants from the surroundings.
After heavy usage, the carbon filter can be removed and the captured dust can be washed out, following which it can be put back into the helmet and reused. Mavox has not yet revealed how many of these cycles the filter can withstand, and whether its effectiveness will diminish over time.
The helmet itself is a full-face unit with ISI and ECE certification, and also gets UV resistant paint. The visor forms a watertight seal and an internal sun visor is also present. The chin strap gets a clip-type fastening system and the FX30 is offered in two shell sizes, but weight hasn’t been disclosed. Prices start at Rs 2,565 for solid colour schemes and go up to Rs 2,999 for designs with graphics while the price for Nepal is yet to be confirmed. The FX30 can be bought on all major online retail platforms.
