- Ultimate comfort – With high quality soft leather hand stitched over comfortable padded foam, the Halcyon goggles mask moulds perfectly to the contours of your face providing the best possible comfort even on the longest of journeys.
- Anti-Misting – The goggle frames have 4 small louvers punched into the metal with the opening facing away from the direction of travel. This allows just enough airflow behind the lens to prevent misting, but not enough to cause irritation to the eyes when travelling at speed or in cold weather conditions.
- Classic British Style- The look of Halcyon goggle has remained the same for over 70 years, as first worn by RAF pilots during WWII. Moving through the ages the traditional goggle style has continued to be a unique and fashionable whether you are a Classic Motorcyclist, an open top vintage car owner, a Mod with an old Lambretta or Vespa or even a Steampunk enthusiast.
- Unique Features - Over the years Halcyon have introduced some additional features to our Traditional Mark 49 Goggle:
- Redesigned Headband Clips –To allow the goggles to be worn over open face crash helmets while maintaining a close fit to the face.
- Non-Slip Headband- 3 silicone beads travel around the inside of the elasticated headband to ensure the goggles remain in place against the surface of a motorcycle helmet or when worn over a traditional leather driving helmet or pilot headgear.
- Adjustable Nose screw – A high quality stainless steel threaded screw between the eye frames allow for fine adjustment for the perfect comfort
- Made to Last a Lifetime – Most modern goggles and eyewear are mass produced using plastic moulded components, this is even the case with other traditional style goggles. Halcyon goggles are different, they are made using the same materials and manufacturing techniques that were first used 70 years ago, with dozens of individual operations to take a solid sheet of brass and refine it into the finished product. A considerable amount of time and care is spent on manufacturing a Halcyon goggle all of which is done within our factory in Hertfordshire, England. You will not find a single piece of plastic on our Mark 49 goggles, only chrome plated brass, stainless steel and real leather – materials designed to last a lifetime.
On Comfort “Now these are "proper" goggles. The soft, supple black leather feels comfortable enough to wear for hours!”- J.P
“I got these Halcyons and the very next day had a PGR mission that was a good 60 miles one way from the house and it was cold, didn't warm up like the weather idiot said it would. The goggles sealed fantastically. There was no 'vents' that I had to cover with little pieces of duct tape to keep too much air/cold air from getting in them and making my eyes water. They were also *comfortable*! The padding in the soft leather was really, really nice!” –T.S
On Style- “Let me first say: these are excellent goggles: comfortable, safe, effective, stylish. Then there is the social aspect. These goggles attract attention! I ride round the world with these goggles - India, Pakistan, Nepal, Iran, Cambodia, Vietnam, Lao, Thailand, Oz, Myanmar.....OK, so I am showing off - but it's true, and every place I went, these goggles were a show stopper.” –P.L
On Durability - “There is no other classic motorcycle goggle that comes close to the quality of the Halcyon goggle, I have owned 3 pairs over the last 40 years (yes I'm that old) and other than replacing the headbands and occasionally the lenses they are still as good today as when I bought them.” –R.A
