Lincoln Electric offers its new limited edition Iron Man VIKING auto-darkening welding helmet. This solar-powered helmet joins the 700G Series and features authorized graphics inspired by the box office hit Iron Man 2 and well-known comic books by Marvel. In addition to the Iron Man character graphics and signature gold and red colors, the solar-powered helmet system comes with battery assistance instead of an on/off switch, and a grind mode for weld prep and post-weld clean up. Weighing in at 18.3 ounces (520 g), the helmet is lighter in weight than many auto-darkening helmets. This fully loaded helmet also features a substantial 3.78 x 1.85 inch (96 x 47 mm) view size with continuously variable nine to 13 external shade control. Like all 700G Series helmets, this model is magnifying ‘cheater’ lens capable. It also comes with bonus accessories including a free Sport-Pak style welding helmet bag and Lincoln Electric bandana. Lincoln Electric’s equipment has been featured in both the original Iron Man™ movie as well as the 2010 summer sequel Iron Man 2. For more information visit www.lincolnelectric.com.
