As any skier or snowboarder snows, ski goggles are a must for negotiating the piste. To meet this need ZEISS has developed a new collection of ski goggles featuring a light and super-flexible design, attractive new styles, maximum customisation and SONAR technology to cope with any light conditions, from intense reflections to dawn haze.
Sunlight is much more intense in the mountains because of reflections off snow. ZEISS ski and snowboard goggles have been designed to protect the eyes from reflection, wind and above all ultraviolet rays, which are more aggressive than usual because of the high altitude and the reflections off snow. ZEISS guarantees total protection against UVA and UVB rays up to 380 nanometres.
ZEISS ski and snowboard goggles can satisfy all style and performance requirements of winter sport fans. The new collection consists of 9 interchangeable models subdivided by characteristics into three groups: Combo, Duo and Mono.
In addition there a 5 goggle models available for men and 5 for women.
No skier, whether a beginner or a professional, would ever want to forgo the excitement of descent because of poor visibility or bad weather. Precisely for this reason, ZEISS has created and patented SONAR colour technology, which increases contrast, making it easier to identify unevenness and obstacles in the snow. This allows the skier to react to danger more quickly and safely without impairing their performance, even on foggy and snowy days.
The SONAR lens is offered on the majority of interchangeable models as an additional lens for conditions of reduced luminosity, and on two models as a main mirror lens.
Skiers’ eyes get very tired when their goggles keep misting up. For this reason all lenses for ZEISS ski and snowboard goggles have an internal coating designed to eliminate this annoying problem in standard weather conditions. In the event of high humidity or extreme drops in temperature, the treatment is less effective.
Simply clean ZEISS ski and snowboard goggles with lukewarm water; if they are very dirty use a neutral detergent. Then rinse them quickly and leave them to dry. Do not use organic solvents to clean the goggles. ATTENTION: do not dry the inside of the lenses with a cloth or rub them excessively. This will avoid damaging the anti-fog coating and help prevent surface scratching. Do not clean the ski or snowboard goggles with a moist wipe!
