Design Update

The new and improved Wiley X XL-1 ADVANCED models now have double injected rubber templetips, with removeable Ultra FoamTM Facial Cavity Seal for superb wind, sun, glare, and debris protection, making them comfortable to wear for long periods. The style is even better than the previous version. An excellent carrying and storage case is now included in these highly specified models, with valuable extras included

The XL-1 Advanced is 1 of only 2 Wiley X models to feature this excellent combination: changeable ballistic lenses, facial cavity seal, elastic head strap. The other model is the SG-1.

Quality Assurance

1.   US MIL-PRF-31013 Vo Ballistic Impact.
2.  ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity Impact.
3.  CE EN 166 (F) Personal Eye Protection.
4.   ANSI Z80.3 Lens Optical Standards.
5.   ISO 9001:2008 Certification

Climate Control for The Eyes

The Durable Ultra FoamTM Facial Cavity Seal creates two controlled zones to protect your eyes from wind, sun, glare, and high velocity debris. The comfortable seal is great for contact lenses and dry eye syndrome, and shields the eyes from wind-blown sand, dust and pollen, and when exposed to a dry environment with forced air ventilation, such as in an aircraft. Depending on the conditions, the gasket can be used or removed. The surface which contacts the skin is smooth, closed-cell and non-absorbant for efficient cleaning.


There is a choice of 3 changeable lens packages, all for high and low level light.

Light Rust Lenses remove blue light which is the main component of haze, and significantly increase visual contrast in flat, overcast situations, including the classic snow "whiteout" condition. Light Rust Lenses are included with XL-1-292, and are also available separately, code XL-1-XLL.

Polarized Smoke Lenses reduce intensity and block glare from the sky and light reflected off surfaces, such as wet roads and the ocean. Aids riders, drivers, hang glider pilots, and sailors. Polarized Lenses are included with XL-1-296.

Light Adjusting LATM Lenses automatically adjust transmission according to light strength, changing from a grey tint through to dark grey in one convenient lens system, so your eyes are not exposed to varying and extreme light levels.  However, XL-1 photochromic LATM lenses can still be changed, if and when required. XL-1-297 comes with Light Adjusting LATM Lenses. In common with nearly all makes of light sensitive lenses, the tint density is proportional to UV intensity, so this feature will not function when the glasses are worn behind glass, such as when driving, flying, or in a control tower, for instance.

The lenses are shatterproof, distortion-free Selenite with 8 functional layers. T-ShellTM and FoilTM lens coatings provide anti-scratch and anti fog protection.

Goggles Conversion

A high quality adjustable Tri-GlideTM Elastic Strap is supplied to convert to Goggles Mode, when it is essential to secure the XL-1 due to operating conditions, for instance physical activity, high vibration, wind turbulence or water impact. The strap features T-PEGTM Docking for secure attachment of the strap to the temple sides, by a twist and lock action.

Protection In Extreme Environments

This modular eyewear is one of the most popular in the Wiley X range, and has become one of the preferred choices of mountain bikers, motorcyclists, airsoft players, firefighters, military and law enforcement personnel.

Why use Vo Military Ballistic certified safety eyewear for bike riding? Your eyes cannot be replaced. Wiley X Eyewear offers high velocity impact protection and strength for virtually any eventuality such as grit projected from vehicle tyres. Twigs and branches on singletracks in low daylight, or no daylight, are an ever-present danger. Some flying objects are fast and heavy and could strike at a critical moment.


Fits Faces: M - L. 

NB: If you require sealed climate safety eyewear in a smaller size, please consider the Wiley X AirRage models, also supplied by Bikeco.
