Twiceme teams up with O’NEAL to offer a safer mountain biking helmet
Swedish safe-tech company Twiceme Technology is announcing, today, their new partnership with motocross and mountain bike protective apparel and accessories company, O’NEAL. twICEme will be integrated into O’NEAL’s latest mountain bike helmet that will be part of the 2023 collection. The partnership represents the efforts of both Twiceme and O’NEAL as they work to bring mountain bike safety into the digital era.
twICEme is a smart technology that digitally stores personal safety information in your equipment allowing for more efficient and safer accident responses. By downloading the twICEme app, users are able to create a profile with their complete medical summary including allergies, physical identifiers, previous injuries, emergency contacts, insurance information, and more. The “ICE” in twICEme represents the phase “in case of emergency” wherein a first responder can simply use a smartphone to access an injured or unresponsive user’s medical profile, greatly expediting rescue response times.
Being at the forefront of the future of action sports personal protection equipment is nothing new to O’NEAL. With over half a century of progressing with action sports, O’NEAL sees the future in smart safety. Smart technology brings the highest quality of safety products that brands such as O’NEAL produce into a new level of protection. Through this partnership, Twiceme and O’NEAL have committed their efforts to bring mountain bike protection from safe, to safest ever.
“With the ever-growing excellence of equipment, we see bigger jumps and more nutty tricks every day. But we also must witness the consequences of failed landings. We believe Twiceme’s groundbreaking invention in the field of smart safety equipment will take your protection during any ride to the next level. As of our upcoming 2023 collection, the safe-tech feature will be integrated into one of our helmets. Stay tuned for more details!”
