"LELO condoms feel like they are molded to fit the unique contours of an individual's penis while simultaneously providing a snugness that makes you feel assured that the sex you're having is safe."

LELO HEX™ delivers strength, thinness and sensation through structure. It's the first major condom innovation in 70 years. In that time, dangerous new sexually transmitted infections have emerged, and the condom has failed to keep up. LELO HEX™ comes as a giant leap forward in the fight for great, safe sex – with a structurally different design, that means you can see and feel the difference.
After seven years of research and testing, LELO’s engineers succeeded where others have failed. Their success was based on one key discovery: it wasn’t the material of latex that needed to change, but the structure itself.
There’s a reason why honeycombs are the shape they are, and why snake scales move the way they do. It’s because hexagons are strong, symmetrical, and tessellate perfectly. They’re nature’s go-to shape for anything needing to be at once lightweight, and incredibly strong. That’s why the structure of Graphene – the thinnest, strongest material known to science is … you guessed it, hexagonal.
With 350 individual hexagons applied throughout each LELO HEX, the condom’s surface tessellates and molds to the unique shape of the wearer. The result is a new feeling of intimacy and comfort never felt in condoms before.
For 70 years no one asked that question, not the leading condom brands, nor the industry as a whole.
HEX™ is unique in that it combines a 0.055mm HEX™ web with ultra-thin 0.045mm latex panels for thinness and strength combined. So the HEX™ helps to channel unwanted stress through the structure itself while bringing you closer to your partner, safe in the knowledge that HEX™ has your back.
We’re all familiar with ribs and dots on condoms, but LELO’s engineers turned the application of texture on its head. There’s a reason wet weather tires in Formula 1 have a textured surface, while slick tires do not. It provides extra hold on the track and reduces the chances of slippage.
So that’s also why, unlike any condom before, HEX is covered with an internal hexagonal web. By having this web raised on the inside, not on the outside surface, HEX™ helps you and your partner to enjoy each other fully, and with confidence.
