The new KOO Orion sunglasses are available in 12 different color combinations to make color-coordinating with your KASK helmet a snap.

New for 2018, the KOO Orion sunglasses are packed with useful features to make fitment easier and ensure comfort both on and off the bike. The sunglasses feature adjustable vents on the top of the frame that can be slid open and closed as needed to maintain clear vision. KOO also incorporated a three-position latch system that adjusts arm length to better fit most faces. The Orion will be offered in 12 color combinations and available for purchase in August. Price is $149 for the California Model, or $219 for polarized.
