SportRx (a division of iCoat) (www.sportrx.com) was established as an e-commerce business in 1996 bringing smaller prescription goggles to the motorcycle market and providing an alternative to the large Classic Motorcycle Goggles. Bringing distortion free wrapped eyewear to the market was revolutionary to the industry, and the response was phenomenal. Since then, SportRx Prescription Eyewear has grown steadily over the past 16 years expanding into a complete sport eyewear company. In 2006, SportRx opened its own laboratory, providing the best custom-made prescription wrap glasses in the business. In 2011, iCoat acquired SportRx, combining iCoat’s best-in-class lens manufacturing and coating abilities with the SportRx eCommerce platform.
