FREE GOGGLES AND EXCHANGE SERVICE FOR RED BULL ROMANIACS 2013
I am still working hard on Romaniacs preparations. Things have been very busy here at Enduro360, but I plan to talk more about my prep activities soon. Well, it looks like I won’t have to be worrying too much about goggles now. Just one more great part of this world class event – Chilly
Custom goggles for 2013 Redbull Romaniacs
Free Goggle-Service For Romaniacs Competitors
Red Bull Romaniacs and gloryfy love dirt, but not in rider`s eyes: competitors will receive free goggles with exchange service twice per day
By providing free, unbreakable goggles to all participants, gloryfy and the organizers of the Red Bull Romaniacs plan to ‘significantly’ increase competitor safety at the special 10th edition.
All competitors will receive a pair of Red Bull Romaniacs branded goggles at the inscription.
But it does not stop there: twice per day during each of the four off-road days, competitors can exchange their muddy goggles for a pair of clean and dry ones at no charge.
This exchange takes place at the first and the third of the refuelling points and is of course voluntary. Only gloryfy goggles will be exchanged.
In a co-operation with gloryfy, the organizers came up with the initiative to further increase the safety of dirt-riders during racing events. Body protection is already crucial in offroad sports: helmets, boots, gloves, back-protectors, neck- and knee-braces have become de-facto standards in racing – but when it comes to their eyes, the majority of riders are still taking high risks. As soon as their goggles lose visibility, many riders continue riding without them.
Losing visibility is normal business for racing goggles: either through mud and rain or dust and sweat. Solutions tried are tear-offs, roll-offs or stopping and cleaning – all have limited success. This is why many competitors end up riding with their goggles off for most of the race, even on single trails in the forest, where branches are posing high risks to the eyes.
Martin “Frejn” Freinademetz: “We are all racers ourselves and so familiar with the problem. By offering clean, unbreakable goggles twice a day during each of our off-road days, we try to motivate our competitors to ride safer. And of course we assume that these limited edition goggles in Red Bull Romaniacs branded design will become a desired item for competitors and all our Fans!”
The replacement service during the event provides cleaned and dried goggles that were used by riders on the previous days.
After the event, competitors and fans can purchase the lightly used goggles for EUR 20,- and spare lenses can be ordered at gloryfy (www.gloryfy.com) or licensed gloryfy dealers.
The Red Bull Romaniacs goggles by gloryfy are a special limited edition only manufactured for the 10th anniversary of the Red Bull Romaniacs.
Only 800 pieces will be manufactured.
