Gizmo uses light to sterilise your helmet

Germbuster is claimed to sterilise your helmet

Taiwanese company Lucky International has launched a GermBuster gizmo that uses ultraviolet light and ozone to sterilise and deodorise your motorcycle helmet.

In the wake of the panic over the pandemic, company spokesman Billy Chao contacted us to see if we were interested in selling their GermBuster through our website.

President Donald Trump would love it as he seems to think that along with injecting disinfectant we could also shine light inside people to cure them of COVID-19.

By the way, you can check the date of this story; it’s not April 1!

However, that is not hi-tech enough for some.

So lucky for them, Lucky International has developed their GermBuster.

I can’t vouch for it and when I asked where to get it and how much it costs, the contact Billy Chao just wanted us to buy it via email.

I also couldn’t find any reference to the company or the product online.Germbuster is claimed to sterilise your helmet

However, I thought you might get a good laugh out of the press release they sent:

Wear a dirty and bacteria motorcycle helmet that caused hair loss and bald.

Due to sweating, dirt, food particles (I am not sure how you get food in your helmet!) and air born (sic) bacteria getting rubbed into the helmet padding and breeding in the warm environment, it is possible that your scalp may become infected. If so it could impact on scalp health and even hair growth

Bacteria in your helmet may also affect your hair growth

Your helmet becomes a breeding ground for air borne bacteria due to sweat, dirt and food particles that could infect your scalp and cause hair fall. It could also affect growth of new hair.Germbuster is claimed to sterilise your helmet

  1. A proper UV lamp will kill bacteria but also will rapidly damage your helmet lining. Better to use warm water and a small amount of a gentle soap.

  2. The press release sounds like ‘snake-oil cure anything sales’ 😛
    I lightly spray this inside of my Shoei Neotec 2 with Glen 20 after each use & every couple of months, more often in summer I use Motorex Helmet Clean.

    1. Yep, Glen 20 works wonders, I spray a little inside my boots now & then also, particulary if they’ve gotten damp. I recommend the citrus scented Glen 20, smells “blokier” than the other scents.

  3. Basically not a bad idea but I have to wonder how helmet lining materials would endure the conbination of UV and ozone exposure.
