Virtue VIO Goggles

Ami from Hybrid Foto spoke to the guys at Virtue at the Millennium World Cup and had this to report about the new VIO Mask from Virtue:

Vio stands for Versatile Innovative Optic
12 base colors
30 different face mask colors
Masks will be assembled to order online and in store
It's possible to change VIO pieces in the facemask
The concept is similar to how Oakley custom sunglasses have interchangeable parts.
Lots vents
Great communication
Lightweight
Customizable strap will be coming in the future

They will have 9 lenses including a chromatic one
Quick change lens
Dual pane thermal
Release coming come
More info coming soon

Virtue only had 3d renderings and cad drawings but didn't want those released. There weren't any actual masks there at the Millennium World Cup.



I pretty much swiped the pictures from PBN, I like it so far. Reminds me of my i4's But with better venting on the lower half. In fact the lenses look like i4's also..

I want to see what the MCB crowd thinks. I don't want to see them turn into angel eyes and disappear.


I know some of you do the French, let's see who translates first

They look pretty cool. These might replace my trusty I4's, the picture makes it look like the foam snaps in too, would be nice to be able to replace every component of a mask as it wears out.

1. Quick change thermal lens

The VIO features a large lens that allows a panoramic view. The thermal lens is great against fog and each lense has a unique scratch resistant coating. The lens can be changed in seconds from a smoke lens to mirror.

2. Lens frame

The VIO can be customized with 12 different color frames for a unique look.

3. Mask bottom

The mask bottom is very easily interchangeable. It is made out of a blend of soft and hard plastics creating a light weight design without sacrificing strength and rigidity. The mask bottoms is changeable with 30 different colors

4. Removable foam

The VIO mask foam is mounted on a frame. You can remove the foam and clean it giving you a brand new feel everytime.

5. Hinge lock(tm) removal system

The new hinge lock system allows you to swap lenses very quickly with great ease. Just remove the strap, fold in the ears, and change the lens. This system allows for the fastest lens change in paintball.

6. Strap

The VIO mask has a strap that is very easy to change. A large variety of straps are available to make your VIO mask totally UNIQUE

7. 3D soft ears

Made specially for the best hearing, the soft ears allow for the best protection and comfort. The ears are equally customizable
---------------------------------------------------------
A bit disappointed. When fully assembled looks like another variation of the i4. Not enough coverage. Not a fan of the hard and soft bottoms. The strap and foam system sounds intriguing but I would have to pass. I'll stick with my E-flexes.

Looks a bit like an older Scott mask mixed with an I4. Looks cool.

Wonder what the MSRP will be. Really like the idea of being able to change each piece out as it wears out.

good thing it's interchangable so you can change it to the same ****ty design of a different color.

Agreed. Not a fan of the design myself. Not as sleek as the i4. I was really expecting more. Too bad.
