100%® Launches Bevo Comfort™ PPE Goggle
December 29, 2020
Continuing its commitment to healthcare workers, 100% has created a revolutionary PPE goggle to meet the demands of those on the frontline of the fight against COVID-19.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – December 29, 2020– 100%®, the San Diego-based sports performance company, has announced a breakthrough in PPE goggle technology with the debut of the Bevo Comfort™ PPE Goggle. Designed based on feedback from doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers, the Bevo Comfort has been built for all-day comfort and safety. It’s the latest effort for 100% to support healthcare workers, following the company’s partnership with Goggles for Docs to donate sport goggles to hospitals around the world.
“Since March, we’ve continually asked ourselves what can we do to be part of the solution to the ongoing pandemic,” says 100% CEO Ludo Boinnard. “High-performance sports eyewear may be what we’re known for, but this year has provided the opportunity and responsibility to be part of something bigger than sport. We’re as proud of the Bevo Comfort™ as we are of everything we design. The doctors and nurses spoke; we listened, and the result is something that will help healthcare workers around the world.”
“Goggles for Docs was born out of a critical need to protect frontline healthcare workers, and we knew the snow sports industry could help with that through the goggles we wear,” explained Jon Schaefer, founder of Goggles for Docs. “What we didn’t know is that virtually every sport with protective eyewear would rise to the occasion to help during this pandemic. We are so happy to have worked with 100% through their development stage in creating their new line. In the past, goggles were mostly about basic eye protection, but 100% took comfort and fit to a new level and were always open to our feedback.”
TheBevo Comfort™ features a unique fit and foam protection, with multiple density foams to fit softly to the face, eliminating goggle marks and remaining comfortable during even the longest shifts. The lightweight frame and anti-fog lens fit comfortably over prescription eyewear.
The Bevo Comfort™ is patent pending and has been tested with accredited EU and CNAS laboratories. In order to protect frontline workers from a potential second wave, 100% made a donation of Bevo Comfort goggles in mid-October via Goggles for Docs and other frontline workers.
As part of its on-going commitment to a variety of charities, including the CDC Foundation and Goggles for Docs, 20 percent of all online sales of the Bevo Comfort goggle will be donated.
100% raised $67,000 for the CDC Foundation’s Combat Coronavirus fundraiser and donated more than $375,000 in PPE protective eyewear and goggles to hospitals and first responders.
