Serious Swedish floorball eye injuries every year
Sports related eye injuries every year globally
Polycarbonate frame for durability and lightness. Soft padding on the inside makes them rest comfortably and tightly around the eyes. Gridwear is one-size-fits-all, with an adjustable headband.
Stainless steel grid treated with anodization to make it less visible and minimize obstructed vision. Conventional plastic lenses cause build up of fog, sweat and scratches which obstructs vision.
EVA case included to store and protect your eyewear when not in use.
CE certified and recommended by the IFF (International Floorball Federation).
Most indoor sports, such as floorball, squash, racquetball, padel, etc.
Currently, there is no sports eyewear protection on the market that gives clear vision, comfort and maximum protection. Many players complain about fog, sweat and scratches impairing vision in traditional eyewear. Gridwear has perfected a design that puts an end to those problems, making it comfortable and more convenient to protect your eyes.
Gridwear has a stainless steel grid instead of a plastic lense to protect the eyes. What really sets Gridwear apart from normal glasses is that Gridwear does not have any problems with fog, sweat or scratches. If you play an indoor sport for longer than a few minutes, you will experience sweat and fog, which is the main reason why so few people use eye protection while playing. Gridwear offers a solution to this huge problem.
Gridwear fits tightly around the eyes, whereas normal glasses has a gap between the eyes and the glasses. So, if you are hit with a club, ball or a racquet from underneath, Gridwear offers better protection.
Yes, Gridwear has been tested and approved by RISE, the Swedish Research Institute. Gridwear is also recommended by the IFF, the International Floorball Federation.
Gridwear is sold all over the planet! So far, Gridwear has been sold in over 20 countries all over the world. From Australia, Thailand, the Middle East, all across Europe, The United States and South America.
Gridwear came out with its first model, the Spectrum, in 2016.
Yes, in the sense that Gridwear can be recycled 100%, the frame as plastic and the grid as metal. For upcoming models we will only use recycled polycarbonate for the frames and recycled metal for the grid. Also, because Gridwear lasts much longer than other protective eyewear, it is more sustainable. Other eyewear with plastic lenses frequently gets scratched and have to be replaced. Gridwear does not get scratched and are very durable. Many players have had the same pair of Gridwear since they bought it in 2016!
Founder of Gridwear
Gridwear was founded by Michael Abrahamsson in Sweden, with funding from ALMI and assistance from Karolinska Institutet and S:t Eriks Ögonsjukhus.
A seamless design for maximum protection and comfort was developed for players exposed to eye injuries.
Sports like floorball, squash, racquetball and padel can cause serious eye injuries. Thousands of players damage their eyes every year around the world.
Our mission is zero eye injuries in sports like these.
“From personal experience as a floorball enthusiast I was hit in the eye by the ball and was close to losing my sight permanently. This fueled my passion to create a product that would allow me and everyone else to play safe.“
- Michael Abrahamsson, founder of Gridwear
Glasses are awesome. Comfortable too. Forgot I was wearing them after a few points and felt very confident on court.
Glasses are great - and I have still got my eyesight! I started using Gridwear after I was hit in the eye with a stick. I have tried using regular plastic floorball glasses, but I got tired of the sweat and fog problems.
My son wears them and thinks they're amazing very comfortable and he loves how you can adjust to size. A great product.
I got rid of the fog on the lenses. They are also much more comfortable to wear than all the plastic eyewear I have tried in the past. The grid covering the eyes has never bothered me. Gridwear is simply a fantastic product built on a brilliant idea.
I started wearing gridz at the start of 2018 and have NEVER looked back. They are the best protective eyewear for floorball I've ever used.
The model is easy to adjust, comfortable and very protective against hits. Another bonus is there is no problem with fog :) I can highly recommend this protective eyewear. Get yourself a pair and enjoy your eyes without injuries for the rest of your active careers.
