This week we’re bringing you our top picks for ski goggles this season. You might be thinking to yourself, why are we bothering with a list of goggles?
Well I’m glad you asked, in my opinion, ski goggles are one of your most important pieces of equipment on the slopes. Put simply, goggles can make or break your day. If you can’t see, you can’t ski.
Good ski goggles will protect your eyes from the sun, snow and wind. That means no distractions caused by trying to shield your eyes from the bright mountain sun, falling snow, or piercing wind. If you have good goggles, you will barely notice them and you will be free to focus on the exhilarating and fantastic experience that you should be having every day you are in the mountains, whether that is for a long weekend with your friends, a half-term break with the kids, or a whole season while you are working in a chalet!
With all that in mind, let’s take a list at our…
Top 3 Ski Goggles of the 2016 Season
1. Oakley – Air Brake
Oakley Airbrake Goggles
The Oakley Airbrake is the leading model produced by Oakley, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better pair of goggles. The visual clarity is outstanding, and the new PRIZM lenses by Oakley provide better contrast, even in flat light.
Although the Airbrake can hardly be described as low-profile, they still offer an excellent field of view, without the frame getting in the way. The Switch-Lock Lens Technology allows you to change lenses within seconds to suit all conditions.
2. Smith – I/O
Smith I/O Goggle
All of the goodies in Smith’s technical arsenal go into the Smith I/O Goggles, and several years after their introduction they still blow minds with their clean rimless look and quick change lens system. Spherical Carbonic-X lens with TLT enhancement, 5X™ anti-fog coating, Porex™ filter and the easiest lens swapping on the planet are here for the taking.
3. Oakley – Flight Deck
Oakley Flight Deck Goggle
Oakley Flight Deck
The Oakley Flight Deck is inspired by a fighter pilots visor, and will leave you looking just as cool. The goggles have a fantastically curved lens, coupled with a rimless design, which gives you a huge field of view on the slopes. Interchangeable lenses mean they are perfectly suited to any type of weather the mountains can throw at you.
