Lincoln Electric Expands Vista Welding Helmet Line

New Designs Feature Classic Car Graphics with Improved Headgear

Cleveland - Lincoln Electric has expanded its Vista® line of auto-darkening welding helmets. The company has also made upgrades to the entire line's headgear, making it more ergonomic and comfortable for customer use.

Red Rod(TM), the first new design, features hot rod flame graphics over candy-apple red metalflake paint, to appeal to the classic car enthusiast. The new retro-inspired SurfRod® helmets, pay tribute to the pinstripes and matte black finish used by street rodders of the 1950s and today. Additionally, Lincoln now offers an all black helmet, ideal for factory orders and individuals who prefer a more traditional look.

"With our long association as the official welder of the Goodguys® car club and a desire to make a helmet with clean, crisp, visually appealing graphics, this was a natural direction for us," said Greg Coleman, product manager, Lincoln Electric. "The look is classic, while retaining all the advantages of a modern auto-darkening helmet."

Along with these new looks come improvements for the entire Vista® helmet line. Newly redesigned headgear features improved ventilation along with fore and aft adjustments for a more individualized fit.
