What if the item I want is out of stock?

If the item you want is out of stock we encourage you to select the "notify me when back in stock" option to enter your email address and we will email you immediately once we receive more inventory of the item.

How do I know what helmet size to order?

Each helmet product page has a Size Guide section with each size's measurements as well as a link to our helmet size chart for all helmet models. To measure your head size, wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head, if it moves while wearing, it is too large.

ImpactX lenses are made by photochromic particles which provide unique climatic management technology. Getting dark from low to high light transmission within few seconds and tailored to reach a custom color from an initial clear state, ImpactX® lenses are available in 3 different colors and with the Laser mirrored coating ( Black and Laser Black , Red and Laser Red, Laser Brown).

Rx Lens Types

What are progressive Rx prescription lenses?

Progressives are multifocal lenses that contain three main fields of vision including near, intermediate and distance. However, progressives do not have a visible line between prescriptions. This gives the wearer a seamless and uninterrupted transition when looking from up-close objects to far-away distance.

Contact us to speak to one of our Rx specialists about your specific prescription needs

What are bifocal Rx prescrition lenses?

Bifocals contain two prescriptions within the same lens. The eyeglass lens is split into two sections; the upper part is for distance vision and the lower part for near vision. When you’re looking at someone who is wearing bifocals, you can often see the line between their nearsighted and farsighted prescription.

Contact us to speak to one of our Rx specialists about your specific prescription needs

What are single vision Rx prescription lenses?

Single vision prescription lenses are used to correct a single vision problem such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. They contain the same amount of vision correction throughout the entire lens.

ImpactX - Lightweight Material

ImpactX® lenses are 16% lighter than CR-39 and 10% lighter than polycarbonate; they have lower internal stress and chromatic dispersion than polycarbonate, resulting in sharper images, higher definition, reduces "rainbowing', and more visual comfort. The program offers cutting-edge photochromic and polarized technology for unparalleled weather management.

ImpactX - HDR High Dynamic Range

In addition to faster activation, the innovative photochromic pigments specifically developed for the new ImpactX 2 lenses, incorporated an advanced filter function which scientifically modulates the wavelength of light passing through the lens: by eliminating a portion not perceived by our eyes and optimizing its spectrum, the HDR technology provides extraordinary visual performance. While maximizing the chromatic range, perceived benefits include superior perception, sharper image and unparalleled enhanced contrast definition.
