THE PASSION FOR SPORTS AND THE CONTINUOUS DRAWING OF INNOVATION, SAFETY AND COMFORT LEAD TO THE BIRTH OF HZ.
The HZ story
Since 1988, Frank Zanon, a businessman from the Veneto region, has been making products for sport and the gravity field, expanding his offer to the production of protective masks for cross-country motocross and skiing. Given the success of his products in 2008, he decided to specialise more and more and create the HZ Goggles brand.
Over the years, the products have become highly appreciated, as evidenced by the collaborations established with the likes of Moncler, Polo Sport and Blu Marine.
With commitment and perseverance, Frank has managed to supply his glasses to three industry giants: Salomon, Atomic and Carrera. He has succeeded in getting world champion Ted Ligety to wear his lenses and in providing for motocross pilots, such as the nine times world champion Antonio Cairoli (who won two world titles with the HZ goggles), world champion Tim Gajser, Gautier Paolin, Rui Goncalves, Max Anstie, Ken De Dicker.
As for the world and Italian Enduro, the pilots wearing HZ goggles were the two-time world champion Cristophe Nambotin, world champion Giacomo Redondi, Nicolò Mori, Gian Luca Martini, Guido Conforti, Maurizio Michelin.
HZ products are of high quality and are made entirely in Italy using the most modern technologies in order to offer adequate, high efficiency solutions to the end consumer. The design is studied in detail and offers all the guarantees of a high-end product. The advantage of the HZ goggles is that they have the same accessories and spare parts for the whole range and the product can be washed in the washing machine (in cold water) once the lens has been removed.
Ensuring a high level of safety for the athlete is the principal value of HZ. As for the builders and designers of the systems, the goggles and the lenses, it was possible to make product changes both in terms of safety techniques and comfort. This has allowed them to surpass themselves and obtain the required certifications for a second-class safety device, in other words, the motocross goggles. The certifications obtained are EN 1938:2010 for the European markets and the ANSi Z87.1-2010 for the American markets.
