KROOPS ORIGINAL RACING GOGGLES
These are the original Kroops racing goggles used for horse racing and other high speed sports worldwide since Kroops invented it in the 1940s. Made with a proprietary high clarity, scratch resistant lens, stitched edging, and brass hardware. Tinted (Grey) lenses provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.
Since 1947 when the founder Israel Kroop revolutionized the sport of horse racing with the invention of the first jockey goggle, and again a decade later with the invention of the first skydiving goggle, Kroops eyewear has been built with purpose. For over 70 years each pair has been crafted in their own factory using the best materials they can source. Their employees take pride in their work so you can see doing yours.
In that moment when you take the first long step out of the airplane, or hit the slopes, hop on your race bike or sailboat - or hear that unmistakable bell and slap of the gate, or drop into the couloir, you are alone. You feel the adrenaline and the rush of the wind. It’s at this moment Kroop’s do what we do. It’s why we spend extra time on those details never seen; why they mold, cut, etch and sew every component and do not outsource them. They do this so at that moment you know you can trust your instincts, training and your glasses.
