The new Optrel Crystal 2.0 is now available from Rapid as a complete air fed package. 

What could you achieve with a practically unclouded and clear view of your working environment?


The new Crystal 2.0 sets a new record with an incredibly low shade 2 light state. This new development reduces the need for a flip up visor. This, in combination with the almost perfect colour spectrum, helps the welder to have a clear view of their working environment. With a clearer view of the job in hand, this helmet has the ability to improve the weld and assist the welder in perfecting a given task.  

Do you know what shade level you should be working at for different welding processes and jobs? The auto pilot feature automatically adjusts the dark shade depending on what you are welding, this eliminates the need to manually change settings for different jobs.

Key Features

Crystal Lens Technology 2.0 - See clearly what happens before, during and after the welding process.
Autopilot Shade Level 4 to 12 - Your welding helmet automatically adapts to changing light conditions.
Twilight Function - You can always remain relaxed, even in case of fast lighting changes.
Sensitivity Control - Adapts the helmet to your environment and requirements.
Grind Mode - The brightest vision during grinding work ever to be offered by a welding helmet.
Heat-Reflecting Paint - Helping you keep a cool head at all times.

" The difference between other welding helmets and the Crystal 2.0 is like the difference between watching black and white TV and colour TV "
