Strap outriggers that ensures a great fit with your helmet and an unsurpassed field of vision for full control on the slopes.

The Plant Based Process
Spektrum’s frames are made of plant-based non-food derivatives from corn. The details on our frames are made out non-food resin and castor bean derivates. 64% of the product is produced of plant-based bio-material and recyclable materials. Through our process they are modified into polymers and become pellets that are injected with colour. The dye process ensures a superior durability and depth of colour for all our frames. This vastly improves colour performance, durability and scratch resistance. The process also spares workers and our environment from exposure to hazardous solvents and chemicals.
Spektrum is a Scandinavian, sustainable sports brands with its roots in Åre, Sweden. Our products are developed and designed for an active life, produced of plant based, recycled and recyclable materials. We enable present and future generations to explore and enjoy nature by making sustainable choices and outstanding products.
