An auto-darkening helmet line comes in two new series– the Viking 1840 features a 1.8-in. viewing-area height in a compact DINS-sized lens cartridge, and the Viking 2450 featuring a 2.4 in. viewing area height in a U.S. standard 4.5 in. x 5.25 in. sized lens cartridge.
The 1840 features externally-controlled continuously variable 9 to 13 shade control for quick changes without helmet removal. The 2450 series features a protected internal continuously variable 9 to13 shade control. Variable sensitivity and variable delay lets users adjust the time required to bring the helmet from a darkened view back to the light state. A standard grind control fixes the lens shade at 3.5 in. to lets users wear the helmet as a grinding shield.
Both series are solar-powered, but the 2450 series has replaceable batteries. All Viking helmets include extra inside and outside cover lenses, a bandana, and a sport-pak style helmet bag. All these helmets also have a magnifying cheater lens and hard hat adapter capable. All Viking helmets meet ANSI Z87.1, CAN/CSA Z94.3 and CE Certifications.
The 1840 series is available in standard black or four graphic styles, including new Amp Angel for lady welders. The 2450 series is offered in standard black and four graphic styles, including new Street Rod. Both black helmets include a decal sheet so users can customize their helmet with flags, logos, or letter characters.
