What To Look For In A Goggle
Some people love a polarised lens when they're skiing or snowboarding, others don't. Some brands argue that a polarised lens can make certain elements of the mountainside, such as icy patches, harder to see. Others say the glare beating properties make up for it. We think it's a very personal choice.
The most important things you need from your goggles are clarity – you need to see properly; anti-fogging – again if you can't see it will ruin your day; comfort – you're out there a long time so comfort will be an issue.
You'll want a great downward and peripheral view and protection from the elements too.
Brands such as Oakley have been at the cutting edge of goggle technology for 30 years. With a range of Lexan and Plutonite lenses, a huge array of lenses which can be switched at the drop of a board and the unsurpassed clarity and anti-fogging, Oakley are worn by the best.
There's others too. adidas and Bolle also offer technical edge-of-the-mountain stuff in their optics and frames, and you‘ll find there's as much technology in their ranges as there is powder on the slopes. Of course eye-catching brilliance doesn't have to come at a high price. With mountain-topping Cebe and Dirty Dog you'll get the most important things you want from a goggle at a great price.
It's your mountain and your ride. Having the right tools is crucial for a good one.
