The LiftAndCut technology lifts each hair and then cuts it allowing it to cut super close to the skin without causing skin irritation or cuts. The blades have rounded low friction protection heads which allow them to glide over your skin. The design ensures that skin is protected fully and the beard is shaved as close as possible.

QuickRinse

This is a great feature which makes maintenance of the electric shaver a breeze. The head of the shaver can be easily popped open to flush out the shaved hair. This helps keep the shaver clean and hygenic.
