1. Injection molded cylindrical lens
2.Injection molding a cylindrical lens helps refine optics and minimize
distortion that can occur subtly in thermo formed cylindrical lenses.
We offer a full range of performance-engineered lens tints and mirror
coatings that help to enhance your vision and every lens is protected
by a durable hard coating that resists scratches.
Why Wear Goggles?
The superior coverage offered by goggles versus sunglasses protects you from a number of on-the-mountain hazards:
1.At high altitudes, the atmosphere is thinner and filters less ultraviolet (UV) rays.
2.The sun's reflection on snow is brighter and more intense.
3.Wind can make your eyes tear and blur your vision.
4.Ice particles can get into your eyes, especially when descending fast.
5.Twigs and branches can hit your eyes when dropping through the trees.
How to Avoid Fogging
When warm air (your body heat) meets cold air (the outside temperature), condensation can form. Goggles use a variety of approaches that can help you avoid fogging.
Double lenses: These are used nearly universally since they do not fog as fast as single-layered lenses. Sealed properly, they create a thermal barrier (like storm windows) that is even more resistant to fogging. An anti-fog coating will help any lens to ward off fogging.
Anti-fog coatings: These are integrated into virtually all mid-level to high-end goggle lenses to help deter fogging.
Vents: The top, sides and bottom of goggles are the keys to help control fogging. Wider vents generally create better ventilating airflow than smaller venting holes. The trade-off is that it means your face may get cold, particularly in extreme climates.
Fans: A few high-end goggles include small, battery-operated fans to help disperse moisture. Fans with different settings can be adjusted for standing in a lift line, riding the gondola or going down the slope.
Tip: If you're not wearing a helmet, don't put your goggles on top of your head. Rising heat from your body escapes through your head and cap, and goggles sitting on a head will trap this moisture.
Anti-fog products: These can be used on lower-end goggles without a coating or old goggles that are starting to fog.
1.An anti-fog solution can be applied to the lens before hitting the slope. Just let it dry and you're ready.
2.A fog cloth is a soft, lint-free cloth with inhibitors that help deter fog on the lenses and removes smudges.
3.A fog eraser is a sponge on one side to blot and absorb moisture, and a soft chamois on the other side to dry a goggle lens.
Tip: Wiping snow off of your goggles can actually lead to more moisture and fog. It could also scratch the lenses. To avoid scratches, use goggle sack or a lens-specific cloth to blot (not wipe) any moisture off of the lens.
There are 3 types of ultraviolet (UV) rays—UVA, UVB and UVC. A lens rated for 100% UV protection protects you from all of them. Fortunately, such protection has become the standard on virtually all goggles sold today. This is good because too much sun and UV rays can sunburn your eyes, lead to cataracts, eye fatigue or other eye conditions. Remember, even when it's cloudy, UV rays are bouncing off of the snow.
Goggles are pretty durable, but the lenses require some thought and care to maximize their usefulness.
1.First, get a pair that has at least 1 scratch-resistant coating—2 coatings are even better.
2.Keep the goggles in a soft-lined sack when you're not wearing them.
3.Don't set the lenses lens-side down on a table or hard surface.
4.Don't leave them on a heater or vehicle dashboard.
5.Don't store them in sunlight.
Scratches usually are not covered under warranty, but some manufacturers do have replacement lenses you can purchase.
