WHAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO GIVE TO A CYCLIST OR BIKER?
Christmas is fast approaching and like every year, the headache returns. Everyone is looking for the smart, original but useful, affordable gift that will please the person who receives it. When that person is a cyclist or biker, it can become even more complicated because all the quality accessories are quite expensive. The question is: what Christmas present to give to a cyclist or biker?
What original gift to give to a man or woman who rides a bike or motorbike?
Anti-pollution masks are not compulsory accessories, just like bicycle helmets (for those over 12 years old) but they are strongly recommended for urban travels. It is indeed in the middle of traffic that fine particle pollution is most concentrated, as they are so small that they penetrate the respiratory tract.
A pollution mask protects the bronchial tubes and lungs from dust and other particles suspended in the air of large urban areas. In winter this accessory protects from the cold, in spring and summer it protects from pollen. It is therefore the ideal gift to wear every day of the year for the velotaf or scooter trips.
It is highly recommended to buy a quality mask with FFP2 filters that filter out at least 94% of particles down to 0.3µm. The other important point when choosing a mask is that it should be adapted to the volume and shape of the face. It is therefore important to choose brands that offer different sizes. This is the only way to ensure that the mask fits snugly around the face and that 100% of the air breathed in passes through the filters and not through the sides.
Frogmask pollution masks meet all these criteria. In addition, they are handmade in France in the suburbs of Lyon. Their ultra-breathable and water-repellent 3D Mesh material allows easy breathing even when riding a bike and provides unbeatable protection against the rain. Their velcro fastening system behind the neck allows you to choose the level of tightening without pulling on the ears. It is very comfortable especially for those who wear a helmet (except for a full face helmet which does not allow the use of a real anti-pollution mask whatever the brand).
If your loved one is already wearing a bicycle or motorbike mask, it might be a good idea to give them a different colour mask to match their clothes. You can protect your health effectively and look good at the same time. The Frogmask range offers a choice of 5 colours in 3 sizes M, L and XL. In case of error, no problem, the exchange is fast and free.
What cheap gift for a cyclist or biker?
Accessories for bikers or cyclists can be very expensive, so they don't fit into the category of small gifts for a few dozen euros.
An anti-pollution mask costs between 10 and 140 euros depending on the brand, the geographical origin or its filtration quality.
With a price of 38 euros including tax, the Frogmask masks represent an excellent value for money with a made in France origin, a manual manufacture, and quality filters to the FFP2 standard. The pack of 10 filters costs 28 euros, i.e. 2.8 euros per filter, which lasts between 15 days and 3 weeks depending on the frequency of use and the level of pollution. So we are talking about a few cents per day to protect your health.
Why offer a pollution mask to a cyclist or a motorcyclist?
For the 7 years that I have been selling masks, I have come across people who systematically tell me that they only think of buying a mask on days when there are pollution peaks. This is obviously too late every time and relatively stupid considering that pollution is present every day of the year. That's why offering a mask for cycling or motorcycling will really please the person who receives it and he or she will thank you by thinking of you every day he or she wears it.
