WHAT IS BLU-O2?

Blu-o2 is BluArmor’s line of particulate filters designed to give you protection from coarse and fine particulate matter. With the Blu-o2 line, we will offer a range of filters that cater to different use-cases from outdoor two-wheeler riding to surgical environments in the medical space. In each case, the filter-media is chosen to achieve a judicious balance between the specific particulate matter that you need to be protected against, your comfort levels based on air flow and product size/bulk.

The first product in the Blu-o2 line of particulate filters is the Blu-o2-CF95. This is a filter that you can retro-fit to your BluSnap2, BLU3 A10 or BLU3 E20. Our goal with Blu-o2-CF95 is to achieve the same level of particulate-filtering that a car’s cabin air-filter (CF for Cabin Filter) provides. We have worked closely with Zip Filters, a leading provider of after-market cabin air-filters for 4-wheelers, to develop the Blu-o2-CF95, and have optimized the design based on the very same filter-media that is used for the cabin filters in several leading cars today. The Blu-o2-CF95 is the next big milestone in delivering car-like cabin-comfort for your two-wheeler rides!

Our goal with the Blu-o2 range of filters is to offer you a simple, easy-to-replace and cost-effective method to have adequate protection from particulates for your specific use-case.

HOW GOOD IS IT?

Your comfort-partner (BluSnap2, A10 or E20) already protects you from dust when the cooling cartridge is wet – you can think of this as a first-level coarse-filter that eliminates large dust particles. We are now adding a second-level fine-filter with Blu-o2-CF95 that removes finer particulates from the air you breathe when you ride.

Our endeavour with BluArmor is to deliver car-like cabin comfort for your two-wheeler rides. With that in mind, we decided to employ the same filter media that is used for making cabin air-filters for cars – this allows our riders to enjoy the same particulate filtering that an after-market cabin air-filter provides for cars.

Components of particulate matter (PM) include fine-dust, pollen, soot, smoke, aerosols and fumes that can be suspended in the air for extended periods of time. Once Blu-o2-CF95 is attached to the comfort-partner you use today – whether it is BluSnap2, A10 or E20 - the fraction of PM entering your helmet will come down 20X for all particulates that are larger than 5mm in size. It is worth noting here that most air-borne allergens are larger than 5mm in size.

The addition of a PM filter does increase the pressure drop in the flow path resulting in a loss of air flow. The pleated design of Blu-o2-CF95 dramatically increases the surface-area of the filter available for blocking particulates and ensures that the flow-loss due to the PM filter is restricted to 20%. In other words, you will still be able to enjoy 80% of the air flow while breathing much cleaner air.

This steady flow of cool, clean air will ensure you resist the urge to open your visor. It is your most affordable insurance against the risk of inciting a litany of ailments because of air pollution. Keep your visor down, bid adieu to fatigue caused by sweat and pollution, and say hello to car-like cabin-comfort!

YOU ARE UNLIKELY TO CATCH COVID-19 WHEN YOU RIDE!

The medical fraternity has a much better understanding today of how Covid-19 spreads than they did 3 months ago. We have been closely following the research on this topic, and this is what we know today.

The good news, if at all there can be any in these times, is that the SARS-COV-2 (the virus-strain that causes Covid-19) isn’t just hanging around in the air. It is transmitted mainly through up-close, person-to-person interactions for extended periods of time (prolonged exposure is about 15 minutes or more of unprotected contact with someone less than 6 feet away). Crowded events and poorly-ventilated areas increase the risk of contracting the infection.

If you are riding a motorcycle, none of these risks really apply to you. In many ways, riding a motorcycle or scooter is equivalent to maintaining social distancing – you are sufficiently removed from any potential source of infection. Your comfort-partner (BluSnap2/A10/E20) keeps flowing fresh air into the helmet ensuring you keep your visor down at all time and eliminates any risk from opening the visor at traffic signals – your helmet is not a perfect seal, and allows exhaled air to exit and ensures sufficient ventilation.

Our endeavour with Blu-o2-CF95 is to give you a continuous supply of clean air so you breathe safely when you ride. Think of it as the most affordable insurance against the litany of ailments that air-pollution can incite!

PRICING, MAINTENANCE AND REPLACEMENT

A two-filter pack of Blu-o2-CF95 is priced at ₹399/-. Each of these filters is usable for about 45 days; a 2-filter pack will last you 3 months (~ 90 days). We have worked hard to bring you this solution at <₹5/day – our mission is to take you closer and closer to car-like cabin-comfort at a price that is very palatable to the Indian two-wheeler rider, and we are very excited with how well we have been able to blend performance with affordability for Blu-o2-CF95

Blu-o2-CF95 is very easy to install inside your comfort-partner (BluSnap2/A10/E20). The filter is sized to be a snug-fit inside the vent of your BluSnap2/A10/E20, and the end-caps on all four sides allow the user to easily hold the filter and push it in place. The end-caps also help get an air-tight fit inside the vent.

Filters require maintenance to maximize their life - take the filters out once a week and dust it either with a hand-vacuum cleaner or (if you don’t have a vacuum cleaner) with a dry brush. This will allow you to maximize the life of each filter. To the extent possible, please keep the cooling cartridge (the blue-colour cartridge) wet when you ride – this will ensure that the dust particles are trapped in the cooling cartridge and help you extend the life of your Blu-o2-CF95

Additional spares are available for purchase here.
