Protecting your eyes
A well hit polo ball may travel at up to 150-160 km/h, corresponding to 45 meters per second! Admittedly, this type of velocity is rare in low and medium goal polo, but both the ball and mallets may still inflict serious injury.
Face guards attached to the peak of the helmet, or goggles with shatterproof lenses improves players' chances of escaping serious injury.
The USPA therefore strongly recommends the use of face guards and/or goggles at all times during play.
In addition to face guards, we offer a range of sunglasses and goggles specifically designed for polo or compliant with military (ballistic) specifications.
