Wildhorn relies on its expertise in head and eye protection as outdoor athletes transition from trail to trail
DRAPER, Utah, June 2, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Wildhorn Outfitters, an outdoor technology company that designs and manufactures recreational products for retail customers, is entering the mountain bike category with a new line of accessories for head and eyes. Wildhorn, a leading brand of ski equipment in North America and proud supplier to the USA Ski Team, draws on expertise in helmet and snow goggle design to protect mountain bike riders.
The first products to be introduced as part of the new line include the Corvair helmet, sharing much of the same DNA as the Drift ski helmet; Radke performance eyewear featuring Fēnom technology, the latest Wildhorn innovation that optimizes light management, optical clarity and peripheral vision; and the Bypass MTB Gloves, a more durable glove that still achieves high technical performance.
“When the snow melts, many Wildhorn customers replace their skis with bikes and keep riding. Wildhorn wants to ride with them,” said Wildhorn’s CEO. Mark Thomas said. “With years of design expertise developing helmets and goggles worn by the US Ski Team, it was natural for us to expand into the mountain bike category to protect riders and develop gear for all their adventures, whether in the snow or on the dirt.
HELMET: The Corvair helmet is designed for hot days and tough climbs. This helmet is super light and discreet with a unique ventilation design. The interior is uniquely designed with deep channels that create separation between the rider’s head and vents without sacrificing safety. This allows air to flow more freely through the helmet on top of the head to cool it down.
Wildhorn’s signature FTA fit system is also built into the Corvair, allowing users to easily get the right fit. Each helmet comes with two sets of pads of varying thickness to give riders even more flexibility. Manufactured in the same factory as the now famous Drift ski and snowboard helmet, the Corvair shares much of the same DNA. The helmet is constructed with a high quality EPS foam liner and a two piece polycarbonate shell. An oversized visor with three smooth adjustment points will provide tons of shade for its riders.
Corvair is available in a variety of colors and sells for $89.99.
GOGGLES: Radke performance eyewear is the first to bring a new era of Wildhorn innovation: Fēnom technology. Fēnom is a platform that optimizes light management, optical clarity and peripheral vision. In mountain biking, the experience of true color is important. Riders need to see every rock, root and gap clearly and without distortion. Fēnom filters out the right balance of blue, green and red light to provide a truer color spectrum for the rider.
Fēnom’s true color is an important part of managing the downhill light spectrum. Glare management isn’t necessary on mountain bike trails, but it’s important to see the right details at high speeds. Each pair of Radke comes with three lenses: one for sunny days, one for cloudy days, and one for darker conditions like early morning or late evening. There are also two photochromic options that automatically adjust based on the amount of light available. Photochromic variations come with a single lens.
Radke is available in a variety of colors and sells for $79.99
GLOVES: Bypass gloves are designed with durable Clarino™ microfiber palms. This material is unique and designed using 70% less water than other microfibers. Co2 emissions have been reduced by 35% and solvents have been reduced by 99%. The end result is a more durable glove that still achieves high technical performance. Two-way stretch uppers provide a comfortable fit and ease of movement. The bypass gloves are touchscreen compatible and the silicone grips on the fingers help create a stronger connection to the brake levers.
Bypass is available in Stealth, Graphite and Dark Green and sells for $26.99.
With a focus on the field, Wildhorn will continue to innovate in the brand’s most authentic sports. For more information on the new MTB line and a full line of Wildhorn outdoor gear, visit http://www.wildhornoutfitters.com
