(Re-)Cycle your city: uvex urban planet
Progressive, stylish and sustainable: the uvex urban planet is the future of super-safe city helmets and relies on recycled, bio-based materials. Conceived from scratch, clean in design and uncompromising in its function, the hardshell helmet produced entirely in uvex's own factories in Germany is a minor sensation: for the first time, it is possible to recycle the helmet components at the end of the product life cycle using detachable joining techniques. An enormous step towards a more circular economy in cycling helmets. But the uvex urban planet also knows how to impress on the bike. The robust hardshell helmet, whose outer shell is made of bio-based HDPE, fits perfectly in every situation. The individual size adjustment is made in height and width via the well-known 3D IAS. Inside, a floating liner made of recycled material ensures maximum wearing comfort. Ventilation is provided by 14 generous ventilation openings. The safety package includes the deep-drawn rear area, the mini-brim on the forehead and the side temple protection. The reflective webbing and chin padding are also made of recycled material. The sustainable city helmet is delivered in a fully recyclable cardboard box made from grass and scrap paper. Clever: the uvex urban planet is prepared for the use of an optionally available plug-in LED at the back of the head.
In the uvex urban planet LED variant, the new city helmet is also available with an integrated LED.
uvex downhill 2100 CV planet
The new uvex downhill 2100 CV planet proves that sustainability and top performance can also go hand in hand when it comes to ski goggles. From the lens to the goggle strap, the model consistently relies on bio-based and recycled materials. At the same time, the goggles convince on the slopes and in the powder with state-of-the-art technologies: The innovative uvex colorvision® color and contrast filter guarantees the best view in the snow - just like the extra-large lens including fog-free uvex supravison® technology. The frame is made of bio-based TPU and gets its color from a water-based varnish. The breathable foam attached to the frame is also bio-based, as is the lens (bio-based PA) or the logo patch on the goggle strap (bio-based apple leather). The goggle strap itself is made of recycled nylon and a recycled yarn is also used for the climate-regulating membrane. Consistently thought through to the end, the environmentally friendly concept does not stop at the packaging: the uvex downhill 2100 CV planet is delivered in a recycled paper box, the screen printing for labeling the box is done with a water-based ink.
