Welcome to Omius
Our mission is to accelerate the evolution of the human body, so that it can adapt better to the environment and surpass its natural limits.
We are the first to use the same cooling techniques found in the heatsinks of your computer and the radiator in your car, to augment the efficiency of the human body. We have developed a new type of material that amplifies the body's cooling mechanisms, by increasing the skin surface area by 5x.
Shown to dramatically improve performance and comfort of the world's best IRONMAN athletes. Now it is your turn!
We have opened up our beta program and are making a limited number of units available on a first-come, first-serve basis for as long as we have supply.
We have unfortunately run out of headbands that we are able to ship before Kona. You can still order a headband and we will deliver it in October.
OCTOBER DELIVERY FOR ORDERS PLACED TODAY
We are currently prioritizing shipments to the athletes competing in Kona. We will ship non-Kona orders starting in October on a first-come, first-serve basis.
How do I use the technology?
For the best result thoroughly wet the cooling material of the headband with water, swirl it around a few times in the air to drain excess water and then wear normally with the flat surface flush against the skin. You can wet the entire headband but for max performance only the cooling material needs to be wet.
The cooling effect is optimized when air flows across the cooling material so do not cover the headband. The cooling effect will last for as long as the cooling material has moisture. The technology has a special coating that will absorb sweat to maintain the cooling effect, for an even greater effect you should add water to the cooling material regularly. The headband can never be too wet and you can never be too cool :)
How do I know it is working?
The headband will cool as soon as it is wet and the cooling effect will increase with greater airflow. When you first put on the headband the material will feel slightly cold because it is at room temperature but it will quickly absorbs heat from your forehead until its temperature is almost the same as your skin. At this point, you will stop feeling a temperature difference because the headband has become an extension of your skin. Although the skin's thermo receptors may not perceive the headband to be cold, IT IS CONTINUING TO COOL YOU!
You will experience the effects of this cooling through lower skin and core temperatures, sweat rate and heart rate, which in turn translates into better performance.
If you have any questions about the best use of the Omius technology give us a shout at email@example.com
Can I use the technology while training indoors
Yes but, because you will not be creating a natural airflow from running/biking outdoors, you should use a fan to simulate this airflow for optimal cooling effect.
How do I maintain the prototype?
The cooling technology can be chipped by contact. So be careful to avoid accidental contact with hard surfaces and whenever the prototype is not in use keep it stored in a protected place.
To clean your headband, soak it in water and soap and gently using your hands to wash and rinse. Do not use brushes or other hard objects as the technology can be damaged. Do not put in washing machine. Always let the band dry in an open air place.
If you still have questions about how to maintain your Omius headband check out this video or let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org
How long should I expect my beta unit to last?
We are currently shipping early prototypes of the product. It has all the cooling advantages of the Omius technology but does not yet have the final designs to optimize for quality, look and fit. We fully expect that you will have a great experience with the prototype but it is still a prototype and we do not have enough experience yet to fully understand the durability.
If for some reason the prototype does not meet your expectations that is precisely the type of feedback we want to hear. Please contact us at email@example.com and we will do everything we can to ensure you have a great experience.
