From Poppenreuth to All over the World

The story started in a small workshop in Poppenreuth, a suburb of Fürth in Central Franconia, where Philipp M. Winter foundet the "Optische-Industrie-Anstalt Philipp M. Winter" and elaborately crafted the first safety goggles. These were initially only for craftspeople and industrial workers. But the goggles soon became popular with athletes. The 1936 Winter Olympics saw the first athletes wear his goggles at the start line, and two years later German mountaineers summited Nanga Parbat wearing glacier goggles made in Fürth. 

However, in 1956 when the son of the company’s founder Rainer Winter, returned from the USA, he decided that the name ‘Winter’ was not suitable for a brand that makes sunglasses. He wanted a name that expressed the function that the eyewear performed. The name “Ultraviolet Excluded” was then shortened to uvex and adopted for the entire product range.  After the brand was founded, new sales strategies were adopted and equipment for top athletes soon followed. This led to international brand recognition and to further product development.

In 1987, uvex expanded into the cycling sector, starting out with cycling helmets “Made in Germany”. The first model was the Airtech cycling helmet. It was very lightweight, extremely protective and featured a mix of EPS and ABS materials, a unique combination at the time.

It was innovations like these that made the company famous and gave it a reputation for quality that it still enjoys today. Now, the uvex product range runs from cycling helmets for children, racing, mountain biking and graveling, to innovative city bike helmets.
