MORGAN HILL, Calif. (Oct. 1, 2020) LEM Helmets, manufacturer of innovative, stylish, and performance head protection for cycling and motorsports, today introduces two, new limited edition Team BePink colorways of its Gavia and Volata cycling helmets to support breast cancer research.
The breast cancer awareness collection is inspired by LEM’s partnership with Italian-based UCI pro women's cycling Team BePink. Worn and trusted by the team riders for training and racing at the highest level around the world, the featured BePink colorways of LEM’s road cycling-inspired Gavia and Volata helmets not only illustrates its collaboration and strong ties to the team, but also its commitment to supporting and showcasing female cyclists in the sport.
With October designated as breast cancer awareness month, LEM will be donating 10-percent of all sales of these two helmets to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in support of the 27-year-old organizations worldwide commitment to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer through advanced research.
“Weaved into our brand mission and ID is supporting organizations – both within and outside the cycling industry – who are at the forefront of instilling positive change and impact through the work they do. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. with a commitment to fund research for prevention and cure for breast cancer worldwide. And, we’re excited to support their work through our campaign this month that ties in our relationship with Team BePink,” said Keith Cozzens, LEM’s global brand marketing director.
Designed for road cycling and inclusive for all rider abilities, the Gavia ($100) and Volata ($65) are premium, versatile helmets that deliver performance through comfort. The Gavia features 27 vents for optimal temperature control, multi-shell in-mold technology, micro-adjust fit system, and a removable visor.
