Safety has always been at the forefront of Lime’s mission, and that’s why we’re so excited to team up with French start-up Cosmo Connected to help riders around the world stay safe by equipping them with the very latest in safety gear.
Starting today, Lime riders will now be able to choose from a selection of Cosmo Connected safety gear showcased on the company’s safety website https://safety.li.me/, via the Lime app and on Cosmo Connected’s site. In addition to riding safely, users will be able to enjoy a discount of up to 25% on select Cosmo Connected products.
“Ensuring the safety of our riders and communities is paramount at Lime, and we’re thrilled to expand upon that commitment with this partnership with Cosmo Connected, providing users access to important safety gear,” said Wayne Ting, CEO at Lime. “Cosmo Connected is a true leader in safety and its innovative product offering and advanced technology is invaluable in helping protect riders.”
Cosmo Connected gear will include a connected light that fits on the back of a bicycle or scooter helmet with an accelerometer and indicators to help prevent changes in the cyclist's behavior, while on-board technology makes it possible to share one's route, detect falls and warn family and friends in the event of an accident.
“It is a real honor to be the selected safety partner of Lime, the world’s leading micromobility provider,” said Romain Afflelou, founder of Cosmo Connected. “This underlines the importance of solving the safety issues in our booming industry, and will be a great example for all platforms to follow Lime’s leadership in advancing safety."
Now more than ever, people are eager for safer, single-occupancy alternatives and micromobility is critical in today’s changed world. As more and more individuals take to the streets with apprehension over mass transit likely continuing to persist, it is imperative that riders have access to safety equipment and are protected on our roadways.
Lime is following CDC and WHO health guidelines to make sure our riders and teams are as safe as possible. Health experts believe that well-circulated, outdoor air helps to lower the chance of spreading COVID-19 – making bikes and scooters the ideal way to get around right now. Lime is the mode of transport that was built for social distancing, and Cosmo Connected is an ideal partner in keeping our riders safe.
