Sea Otter 2015 | 100% Introduces Speedcraft Glasses, Aircraft Helmet
Coming from a motocross background, 100% has taken the mountain bike industry by storm. In only a few years, the easily recognizable logo has found its way onto many pro and recreational athletes in the form of gloves and eyewear. For 2015, they will be releasing a lightweight full-face along with an expanded range of glasses:
The 100% Aircraft downhill helmet has been teased since Interbike 2014, since then we’ve seen it used by the Lapierre Gravity Republic. Loic Bruni has been showing it off with his matching kit and bike on some podiums this year already. It features a brilliant looking carbon shell with a relatively significant set of vents. No details yet but it should be on the lighter, better ventilated side of DH helmets. Therefore, it will presumably be a popular choice for enduro racing.
Looking like they jumped straight out of an 80’s skiing catalogue, the Speedcraft is turning heads, here’s what 100% had to say:
Our commitment to developing premium race goods doesn’t end with our goggles. The passion for infusing the latest technology and moto styling into our products transcends into our performance eyewear line as well. Engineered with the finest materials, 100% eyewear exceeds the demands of top-level athletes resulting in a lightweight, comfortable fit.
The Speedcraft carries the same DNA as our goggles, featuring striking design aesthetics with TOPVIEW lens technology. This technology significantly increases vertical visibility in the riding position, giving the rider a distinct advantage when cycling.
