The Scott company has a history of innovation. It dates back to 1958, when Ed Scott, a talented engineer and ski racer living in Sun Valley, Idaho, revolutionized skiing by inventing the first aluminium ski pole. In 1970, it diversified into the motocross market with the world’s first ever motocross-specific goggle, and later introduced motocross boots, grips and accessories.
The current Scott motocross range features helmets, shoes and boots, apparel, body protection, sunglasses and bags. However, Scott is still most famous for its motosport goggles, which include the Tyrant, Tyrant WFS (Works Film System), Hustle MX, RecoilXi and 89Si Pro Youth models, plus the Split OTG, which offers the latest ‘over the glasses’ technology to help reduce fogging on your prescription eyewear.
Other technology employed on Scott goggles include the NoFog lens treatment to prevent condensation, Dust Catcher foam to filter fine dust and sand particles, and the NoSweat 3.2 Face Foam system, which channels sweat away from the face while relieving pressure from the nose. All Scott lenses are also optically engineered to screen out 100% of harmful UVA/UVB/UVC rays.
Many of motocross and supercross’s biggest stars are members of the Scott motorsports team, including Americans Trey Canard, Phillip Nicoletti, Andrew Short, Zack Freeburg, Ryan Zimmer, Blake Baggett, Daryn Durham, Robbie Reynard, Martin Davalos, Matt Lemoine and Dean Wilson. Aussies Ben Townley and Kirk Gibbs, and Brit Billy MacKenzie complete the line-up.
