R-PUR is a new anti-pollution mask made in France. It’s designed for bikers and riders who want to breath in clean air even when they have to share the road with recklessly polluting diesel cars and other fossil-fuel-burning vehicles.
The mask filters out toxic particle, including the finest ones, as well as pollens, viruses and bacteria, with a protection greater than what’s imposed by the European norm en149-FFP3. The company claims that by wearing the mask you won’t be “compromising on comfort and style”, which is maybe true if you’re a fan of the Bane-chic look. R-PUR isn’t cheap: it can be pre-ordered on the company’s website for 149€.
