The Speedglas G5-01 welding helmet has a removable flip up front which reveals a clear grinding visor beneath for seamless transition between welding and grinding. 

Speedglas True-View technology allows you to see your welds with more colour and contrast and new Variable Colour technology allows you to determine which colour tone provides the best viewing contrast for your welds. 

By upgrading to the new Speedglas G5-01 head top you'll also benefit from air flow control, extra large clear visor, new G5-01 head harness, task light, extra protection options and our largest welding lens ever


Literally see the difference

Imagine what more realistic-looking colours and details could do for you:

  • Provide better control of your weld puddle – with a view that appears lighter, brighter, and more realistic.
  • Help you focus on your welding set-up, welding technique and inspection of just-completed welds
  • Give you a clearer view of coloured welding machine controls – even with your helmet in the safe, down position..


Choose how you see your weld

To provide better vision and more control of your weld puddle we now introduce 3M™ Speedglas™ Variable Colour Technology: choose between natural (A), cool (B) or warm (C) tones for your dark state.
