Paintball is the fastest growing extreme sport in the world. With more than 15 million players, it is more popular than rugby, snow boarding and surfing. As the sport grows, there is an increasing demand for functional improvements and aesthetic differentiation in equipment manufacturers and brands.
Paintball masks are essential for protection but also represent the face of the player. Developing new vision systems involves a complex set of functional and aesthetic challenges. Formation worked with JT Sports to develop Quicklock (QLS) vision systems including Reaper, Status and Carnivore masks. QLS masks are built around a modular, quick change, dual pane thermal lens. This system affords rapid lens changes to allow for play in all light and weather conditions.
The resulting QLS masks build on JT Sports motor cross heritage and deliver the aggressive function and aesthetics players demand.
