Advanced features of TOTOBOBO

Anti Virus = Auto-disinfection

Anti Virus is auto disinfection

Totobobo® mask contains BioCote®, a silver-based antimicrobial agent. The silver ion ingredient provides continuous anti­microbial properties throughout the lifetime of the product. BioCote® effectively inhibits the function, growth and reproduction of a wide range of micro-organisms. Silver ion based antimicrobial additives have been proven to work throughout history. It is not toxic, flammable nor corrosive and will not cause bacteria to become resistant to antibiotics.
BioCote® active ingredients are registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

One Mask Fits All

TOTOBOBO mask fit children and adults

The patented Tototobob mask is the world first customizable mask designed to fit all face shapes (face length 90mm~135mm).

Visual Seal Check (VSC)

Awesome seal check

Easy seal check through the transparent mask

A quick Visual Seal Check (VSC) is all you need to ensure good face seal. It’s much more intuitive and 100 times quicker than typical fit-test.

We validated the VSC with the golden standard fit-test- TSI PortaCount Plus quantitative fit test system, so you don’t have to do it again. Your time can be saved for more important tasks.


Reuse is good value and green product

Normally, you have to dispose of the whole disposable respirator after use, including the rubber band and the metal nose clip. With TOTOBOBO, the only thing you need to dispose of is the used filter. It is a lot more eco-friendly, consider the millions of disposable respirators dump into the landfill every day.
Reuse is safe, easy and does not require special equipment for disinfection. Just wash the mask with soap and rinse it with water and dry. Pop in a new filter and snap the filter cover back on and the mask is ready to be used again.

High Filter

High performance filter, high filtration effectiveness, low breathing resistance

High Efficient Filter combines high filtration efficiency (protection) with high flow rate(ease of breathing).
It makes breathing through the mask very easy and yet provides high level of protection.
The secret of this highly desirable characteristics lays in the 3D structure of the filter media, which is much thicker than other disposable respirators. The filter media is charged with static electricity, arresting the finest particles before they have a chance to penetrate the media.
The filtration efficiency of Totobobo filter (F94) is 94%. This means it is able to filter out at least 94% of the most penetrating particles size of 0.1 micron. This filter is able to block very small (often invisible) particles and aerosols from combustion sources such as motor vehicle exhaust, industrial processes, cigarette and incense smoke, cooking, and woodburning activities; biological components such as pollen and mold spores, and dust mite and cockroach allergens; fine fibers such as asbestos; and soil particles. However, it is not suitable for gases such as Ozone or carbon monoxide.

Super Elastic Invisible Strap (SE strap)

Magical, invisiable strap provide comfort and secure holding force

It is difficult to get a clear picture of the Invisible Strap used to hold TOTOBOBO mask.
Apart from aesthetic reason, the Super Elastic (SE) Strap has many desirable properties:
– It provides a soft yet firm and comfortable holding
– it’s highly flexible and comfortable, super thin and unobtrusive
– It is safe and does not cause irritation for delicate skin yet it is strong enough for sportswear
– It is much more enduring than rubber (3 times) and proven resistance to perspiration, urine, oil, water, sea water, Lt. acid cosmetics, general solvent.. etc.
– It retains its elasticity from -35C to 80C
It can be washed by hand and machine or dry cleaned.

Soft & comfy (TotoSoft)

Transparent and soft mask body, almost like a second skin

The transparent elastomer (TotoSoft) developed specially for TOTOBOBO is soft and comfortable to wear. Easy to trim and easily adapted to different face shape.
Thin and follow the nose bridge snuggly, it does not require a nose clip yet fitting much better than most other respirator thanks to the ergonomically design profile.
Almost like a second skin, it does not cause any interference or fogging when wearing glasses.
Heat come out of the thin and transparent mask much faster than other disposable respirators, keeping your face cooler.
The inside rim is finely textured, making it easier to detect face seal with presence of moisture.
Three stepping contour lines for easy trimming to fit smaller faces.
The two openings fit snuggly with the filter cartridges ensuring an air-tight assembly.
Spring open design for easy donning.
Finally, the mask body can be folded flat and easily kept in a shirt pocket.

Simple Stock

One mask fits all, simple logistic

TOTOBOBO can drastically simplify your logistic burden for keeping track of multiple brands/sizes of masks in order to fit different people within your organization.
Because the mask is reusable, it is only necessary to keep a small number of TOTOBOBO for occasional replacement.

  3. I have promoted your product from the begging when they were very inexpensive to buy;. I did not buy one, but knew it was a great product for the bicycle riders and others.
    I still do tell people about them. I didn’t get one but don’t worry if its helpful for people I tell them.

  5. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a
    similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot
    of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated. Many thanks!

  6. Dear Totobobo,

    I just purchased one of your masks and love it, but, just for aesthetic reasons, I was wondering if the mask can be coloured black at all?

    Is there a paint or other substance that I could use that could safely and effectively improve its general appearance?

    Thanks a lot,


  7. I cycle a lot in Bristol – rather hilly – so am continually gulping for air. I also suffer form something called COPD, a breathing disorder which, in its most extreme form is known as emphecema. I’m nowhere near that state but my main requirements for a mask are low breathing resistance and to act as a cushion of warmer air, the latter VIP in winter. Pollution filtering is a bonus – and Bristol is generally much cleaner than London. I have tried ordinary surgical masks to provide the warm air with reasonable success though in this exceptionally cold spell it hasn’t been so good. I’m seriously thinking about trying your totobobo mask but wondered whether you were aware of any medical contra-indications for someone like me. Sorry I’m not a twitter or facebook subscriber but e-mail works pretty well for me. John E

  10. Are the straps interchangeable? So if I buy a mask with a head strap and also buy additional ear loop straps, will they work together if I decide I prefer ear loops over the head strap?

  16. Is there also a filter for Carbon monoxide as its my biggest concern with riding my bike in heavy traffic?

    • We have the Matrix filter which absorb smells and organic vapors as well as cutting down very fine particles including 0.3 microns.

  17. In addition to filtering smells, what is the filter efficiency of the matrix filter for particles? 96, 94, or 92%?

    • Zaid, the filters can be kept in storage for 2 years in sealed plastic.
      The filter is able to block smokes particles, but the fire temperature may cause the mask to soften or melt. So it is not recommended for fire escape purpose.

  30. Hi – how long can the filters be kept in storage? Is there an expiration date of can it be kept indefinitely till usage?

  31. Hi Kim, how long you need to change the filter depends on your application.
    For example, if you use the mask to reduce traffic pollution or other irritants like pollen, you may wait until the filter turns from white to grey.
    However, if you want to get respiratory protection from flu or other airborne virus then you may want to change the filter more frquently.
    In hospital setting, they follow a clear protroco. One may need to change the filter every 4 hours or everytime he/she went into an ICU.
    In any case, you should not keep using the same filter for over 4 weeks.

    • Hi Rob, any mask that form a tight seal on your face and installed with effective filter should be able to reduce the chances of air borne virus. N95 mask, if it seal your face will reduce the chances by 95%. Totobobo mask, if it seal your face, will reduce the chances by 94%.
