Abus are a German based company, established in 1924. Their initial product was padlocks, this has now broadened out to smoke alarms, video surveillance systems, bike and boat security, alarm systems and locking systems. The Abus focus on bike security covers both the rider’s head (helmets) and bike security (bike locks). In the areas of padlocks and bike locks, Abus are the world market leader.
Luckily for customers, the full name, August Bremicker Söhne KG, gets shortened to ABUS. Much easier to fit on the side of helmets and bike locks. Abus have consistently pushed the envelope of helmet design, providing helmets to World Tour Team Movistar since 2017. Abus helmets offer a real focus and attention to detail on their intended type of riding, employing real technological advancements to offer the very latest in helmet performance. The stylish, best-selling, Abus Aventor (above), for example, features forced air cooling to allow great ventilation, whilst still being comfortable enough for long days in the saddle. The Abus Airbreaker (below) combines great looks with extremely low weight (207 grams – medium) thanks to it’s advanced honeycomb construction, the clever ‘multi speed’ design allows more ventilation at lower speeds and optimum aerodynamics at higher speed.

Abus have taken bike rider security to the next level with its potentially life-saving Quin Sensor Q9. The Quin Sensor Q9 integrates crash detection into Abus bike helmets. The sensor incorporates an accelerometer that detects and evaluates falls. If a fall occurs, the sensor triggers the emergency routine on the users bluetooth paired smartphone. This can send emergency information, such as location of the rider to another person previously assigned on the smartphone app. In addition, real time tracking can be triggered in any dangerous situation by tapping the helmet 4 times.
