Domains found offering counterfeits
Value of fakes removed in one year
Estimated return on investment
100%, the brand that dominates the motocross goggles market in America, discovered fake versions of their products in a number of Chinese marketplaces, such as Aliexpress and Alibaba, but also on Facebook and Instagram. When it became apparent that all their time, money, and reputation were in danger, they tried to fix it themselves. But given the scale of the issue, they weren’t able to make enough of an impact.
According to Costello, their design is a critical element of their products. They invest a great deal of time and money into the development and quality of their optics and lenses, and the materials are chosen and designed for athletes. When they discovered the counterfeits online, they could not believe it. They got in contact with Red Points since they knew that they couldn’t handle it by themselves and that the only way to solve this online problem would be a technological solution.
100% has been using Red Points for over a year now, and more than 13,200 infringing products have been removed, which represents a success rate of 90%. Counterfeits have been found on more than 15 online platforms, both on marketplaces and social media.
100% is an original brand that was launched in 2012, starting with motocross goggles and expanding into performance eyewear, mountain biking gear, and helmets, producing a wide variety of high-performance products for athletes. The company employs just over 40 employees in San Diego and several other people in various locations around the world.

“Those who buy counterfeits products should know they are not getting the quality of product that they expect. This can have a really damaging effect on the brand in the marketplace”
