Kask Optics launches new glasses, adds colours and sizes

Italian helmet maker designs adjustable shades that fit the Protone

Kask Optics, the offshoot of Kask helmets, has finally debuted its new range of glasses and, like their helmets, they are 100 per cent Italian made.

The frames have a unique flip-in arm design, which sees the arm rotate at the hinge point and turn in on itself for storage. The rotation is stepped so that you can adjust the angle of the lens whilst wearing to help clear fogging. The glasses were also designed to fit snuggly on to Kask's Protone helmet, and the arms clear the helmet shape too. The nose bridge is adjustable too, and included in the set is a second, smaller sized nose bridge.

Kask seems to have sweated the details, with lens changes made remarkably easy. Simply flip the retaining tabs on the frames and pop the lens out — with little stress-inducing bending or forcing, like we've had from other switchable systems.

Lens switching is easy, just flip the retaining tab

The lenses are made by Zeiss, and included in the package is a multi-layer dark and a clear lens.

Kask is aiming the glasses squarely at the top-end with a projected €200 price tag for the twin lens set, or you can add a third photocromatic lens for an extra €50. The glasses are available in 12 colourways, all inspired or matched to Kask's helmet colourways — most notably the Protone.

Kask has also added a wider range of sizes to the Protone and Mojito, with the Protone now available in a small alongside its existing medium and large. The Mojito is now available in small, medium, large and XL.
