Yes there will be replacement jewels. We will be selling them as part of a set or you can find me at events and get them for free.

That forehead logo has been a PITA. I might end up having to mold it into the plastic, which is a shame cos it looks so good as a jewel.

Sticking it in with contact adhesive might help. Some of them are just a little too large for the hole which means the edge isn't pushed down fully and can rise up, then it starts peeling back. We are making them smaller currently to combat that problem.

Manike,

PM me or get me on the Guild or MCB, i think i know of an adhesive that may solve your jewel problem. not sure of the chemical compatibility, but it's worth a quick test...

is the idea not to mount the jewel in place so it is permanent though?

Do that. They shouldn't be coming off anyway.

The strap comes off but still attached to the end clips.

Do you want to put it on another goggle or something?

Very shortly you will be able to buy other straps and then it won't matter if you destroy the strap clip to get it off. Once you cut that strap clip to get the strap off the strap clip is useless and should NOT be used again.

If you want to double strap it you could just push the JT strap through the E-Vents clip... but I *can't* recommend you do anything which may affect a safety related part of the goggle.

You could sew your strap on, but again, I *can't* recommend anything that could affect the safety.

He is right.... pluss.... if what you have is a nice kik but J old shool strap or something, you will not get a cent ever, if you sew it... i recomend double strapping, looks 10 time hotter than a "smile on the rocks" grill....
