Makrolon® - a plastic that protects the eyes
Created for extreme sports: Goggles made of Makrolon®
Mountain biking, sky diving, freeclimbing and high-speed sailing are just some of the popular new sports disciplines for outdoor freaks and modern-day adventurers. And with state-of-the-art technology and top-quality equipment, such sports are open to just about anybody. One piece of equipment that is virtually indispensable for such activities is a pair of Makrolon® goggles.
Light but safe
Extreme sports also make extreme demands on protective eyewear. This is where Makrolon® comes in. The Makrolon® lenses provide the eyes with optimum protection, and actually combine two characteristics that are basically contradictory to each other: light weight and ruggedness. They are virtually unbreakable and do not splinter even in a severe fall or collision. They are unaffected by wind and weather, and when the sunlight glares across the icy landscape, the built-in UV protection shields the eyes completely from the its harmful radiation.
Makrolon® is also very easy to shape and puts no limitations on the imagination of the designers. Eyewear manufacturers are very happy with it, too. Nowadays, people are wearing their Makrolon® eyewear as a fashion accessory and not just for extreme sports. Quite simply, if your eyewear is made of Makrolon®, you feel good.
