The First Major Condom Innovation in 70 years.
LELO HEX comes as a giant leap forward in the fight for great, safe sex – with a structurally different design, that means you can see and feel the difference. After seven years of research and testing, LELO's project succeeded where so many others have failed. "We took the thinnest, strongest material known to science - graphene - and integrated its hexagonal molecular structure into the latex condom. Our manufacturing partners said applying structure couldn't be done. It could, and the results are extraordinary," said the team.
There's a reason why honeycombs are the shape they are, and why snake scales move the way they do. It's because hexagons are strong, symmetrical, and tessellate perfectly. They're nature's go-to shape for anything needing to be at once lightweight, and incredibly strong. That's why the structure of Graphene – the thinnest, strongest material known to science is ... you guessed it, hexagonal.
With 350 individual hexagons applied throughout each LELO HEX™, the condom's surface tessellates and molds to the unique shape of the wearer (it combines a 0.055mm HEX™ web with ultra-thin 0.045mm latex panels for thinness and strength combined).
"We're all familiar with ribs and dots on condoms, but LELO's engineers turned the application of texture on its head. There's a reason wet weather tires in Formula 1 have a textured surface, while slick tires do not. It provides extra hold on the track and reduces the chances of slippage."
Three years of research, and an additional four years of testing and refinement allowed them to produce and secure approval for the first limited batch of LELO HEX™ condoms for up to 10,000 backers. Now they're offering you the chance try it, to see and feel the difference. Support them on Indigogo.
