What should you pay attention to when purchasingnew ski goggles? The right information ensures that you make the right choice.

Ski goggles or in English ski goggles are one of the most important safety parts of your ski or snowboard equipment. Why? If you love your eyes, you protect them against the harmful UV radiation that you encounter in the mountains. Especially at higher altitudes, the UV A and B radiation is very strong and harmful to your eyes if you do not protect them properly. In addition to protection against UV, ski goggles also protect you against cold and wetness. These are actually the three requirements that good ski goggles must meet. In addition, there is a choice of lens types, lens colors, interchangeable lenses, frame sizes and fits. Below you can read more about the ski goggle technology .

Ski goggle lenses

Ski goggle lenses

The biggest difference between ski goggles is the lenses. Below you can read the properties of the available lens types. You can choose from 2 types of lens types. A cylindrical (flat) lens and a spherical (convex) lens. A cylindrical lens is a flat lens both horizontally and vertically. This type of lens gives good performance at a lower price. A spherical lens has a curvature on both the horizontal and vertical axis. This gives the glasses a greater range of vision. Viewing range means that you see more above, below and to the sides.

In addition to the looks, there is a difference between the two types of lenses. That is the reflection of the sun. With a flat lens, there is a chance that you will experience a bit more glare on bright days. This is because a flat surface receives more sunlight. On the other hand, a convex lens will give less glare because there are several surface points on a convex surface with which the sun makes contact, so that these lenses cause less glare.

Photochromatic Lenses

There is nothing more unpredictable than the weather in the mountains. That is why it is nice that your ski goggles provide optimal vision in both sunny and bad weather. You can of course opt for ski goggles with an interchangeable lens or opt for a photochromatic lens. These lenses color with the weather. Oakley calls it Prizm ,Anon calls it Sonar and Spy calls it Happy Lenses . Now it is not the case that these lenses become completely transparent when the weather changes from sunny to cloudy, but it is in the nuances in terms of depth vision in transitions from bright to flatter light.

Lens distortion

The flat edges of a flat lens can cause some image distortion at certain viewing angles, while a convex lens allows for better all-round vision. Manufacturers use the injection method for making convex lenses. Here, lens tapering is used, which means that the lens becomes thinner from the center of the lens. Taking into account the light around your eyes. Another added advantage of a convex lens is the distance from your face to the lens. Since it is larger, there is more airflow and therefore less chance of your glasses fogging up.

Please note. It's not to say that a flat lens will distort your vision so much that you think you're walking through a distorting mirror attraction. These are small differences and also take into account your own wishes regarding the performance of your equipment.

Ski goggles lens color / tint

There's nothing worse (or more dangerous) than having poor visibility on a powder day or being blinded by the sun when it's super bright. There are dozens of different colors of lenses to choose from for your ski goggles if you put all brands next to each other.

And despite the fact that that one color fits really well with your new jacket, it is also useful to look at the use of the ski goggles. One lens simply performs better in certain vision than the other. The amount of light that a ski goggles lets through is translated into the VLT value. The VLT value goes from 0% to 100%. In it, 0% is no light transmittance and 100% is maximum light transmittance. In other words with 0% you see nothing and with 100% you see nothing after.

Ski goggles lens category

Ski goggles lens category. What is that?

Some lenses are designed to perform in low/flat light and poor visibility conditions such as snowing or foggy conditions. Then you need lenses with a high VLT value ranging around 60 – 90%. Typical colors are yellow, pink and blue. For clear days, choose ski goggles with a VLT value between 5 – 20%. Most lens colors are black, silver and gold and are often reflective. If you have a partly cloudy day, there are again lenses hanging in between. Then you are often best off with a lens that allows around 40% light to pass through. Keep in mind that everyone differs in what he or she feels comfortable in. Practice may therefore prove different from theory.

Multiple lenses for your ski goggles

Well, how crazy do you want to make it. Normally you can get away with a lens if you only use the ski goggles for bad weather and ski or snowboard with your sunglasses during nice weather. If you always wear ski goggles, you need at least two lenses or ski goggles. One for bad weather and one for good weather. Of course you can also add lenses in between. Here you get a good idea of what a lens can do for you.

Ski goggles lenses that you can exchange

The more time you spend in the mountains, the more familiar you will become with the rapidly changing weather conditions. Having another lens with you is therefore definitely an option. Many manufacturers respond to this by making smart constructions to quickly change your lens. Anon ,Salomon and Oakley all have their own systems for quickly changing the lens. Magnets or ingenious levers are used to quickly swap your lens. With most manufacturers that offer such a system, you immediately buy the second lens with the glasses. So you're done in one go.

Ski goggle lens technology

Of course you have the type of lens and the color, but there are several factors that are important when choosing a lens. Some features are useful to consider.

UV A+B Protection

All ski goggles we sell provide 100% UV A+B protection. The UV intensity increases with altitude and it is important to protect your eyes well against UV. With good protection, your eyes remain good and there is no risk of retinal damage.

Mirrored lenses

A coating on the outside of the goggle lens reflects a greater amount of light than a non-mirrored lens. A reduction in light transmission also means less glare in the eyes. In addition to letting light pass through less, it is of course also an incredibly cool sight, such a mirror on your nose, although we recommend turning it off in the bar.

Polarized lenses

When light is reflected at a certain angle, it tends to generate a higher intensity. Polarized lenses are able to counteract this, turning the glare into a crystal clear image with more contrast and definition. Polarized lenses are great for winter sports and reduce eye fatigue.

Double Lenses

Every ski goggle in our collection is equipped with a double lens. This provides a thermal barrier between the cold outside air and your warm face. Due to the double lens, the chance of fogging is much less than with a single lens. We also advise against some lenses for ski and snowboard sports.

Anti - condensation layer

A chemical treatment on the inside of the lenses reduces the risk of fogging. Some coverings are more durable than others. When maintaining your ski goggles, make sure you follow the manufacturer's advice so that you do not polish the coating of your ski goggles. That would be a serious sin.

Ventilation

All ski goggles that you can buy from us have ventilation. Some are marginal, some are perfect. In general, more ventilation is better. During boarding or skiing your temperature can rise a bit so it is important that you can lose the heat. This is to prevent your ski goggles from fogging up. So also keep in mind that your ski goggles do not get clogged by wearing your helmet. So if your helmet blocks the vents, your glasses will become more prone to fogging.

Ski goggle frames

These come in hundreds of sizes and models. But they only have three basic things to offer. The frame holds the lens in place, keeps the snow out and provides comfort on the face. You can take the first two for granted, the last one is important to you. Each frame has its own specifications and sizes.

Frame size

Nine times out of ten, adults fit the ski goggles they purchase without any problems. But there are some exceptions. An easy way to think about your frame size is the size of your helmet. If you have a small helmet size, you will probably also need a smaller frame size for your ski goggles. If you have a medium or large size, all medium glasses will fit. If you feel you have a large face and this is supported by an XXL helmet, then a large frame size is your choice.

Let's sum it up:

Small – Young people and adults with a small face
Medium – the glasses size for 99% of users. Frames come in unisex colors as well as some specific women's models.
Large - is less common and is for people with large faces or for those who want more space between face and lens.
Most ski goggles are one size , but the specifications indicate how large or small the goggles are.

Ski goggles for glasses wearers or OTG (Over the Glasses)

These ski goggles are designed so that you can wear your normal reading glasses underneath. This is much cheaper than buying ski goggles with a modified lens. The distance between face and lens is greater, so that the glasses fit easily between them. Your reading glasses should not move and there should be no pressure points.

Oversized ski goggles

The trend of now. Big is better. Due to the larger lens and curvature, you simply have better view. Does not fit everyone, but is suitable for snowboarding and skiing because it is nice to have more visibility. Both horizontally and vertically, larger glasses show more. For example, if you are at the top of a powder descent, it is nice to be able to look down without moving your head. Keeping an eye on other mountain users is also not an unnecessary luxury.

Fit ski goggles

Because every face is different, it is important that the ski goggles of your choice fit well on your face. The manufacturers have provided for this with smart solutions by using three-layer foams, so that all pressure points are compensated. Make sure that the goggles fit well on your face and that there are no gaps between skin and ski goggles. A good fit is 95% of the fun of your ski goggles. If the ski goggles squeeze too much on your face, then they are not the right ski goggles for you.

strap

An important part of the ski goggles is the strap. This is the part that keeps the ski goggles on your nose. A good strap is easily adjustable and nice and wide, so that the strap does not cut on your head. Some have a clip so you can click the glasses behind your head. The straps on the new glasses are almost all provided with a silicone backing. This is made to hold the goggles on the ski helmet. Otherwise, the ski goggles sometimes had the tendency to shoot off your helmet. With this solution, that belongs to the past. Are you looking for ski goggles with interchangeable straps? Then view our glasses from Aphex.

Helmet compatibility

When checking the fit of your ski goggles, it is important to test them together with your helmet. You can assume that when you buy glasses and helmets from the same manufacturer, this should not cause any problems. If you are going to mix brands, you should check whether the helmet is not in the way of the ski goggles, so that the airflow is compromised with the chance of your goggles fogging up. The glasses should fit fairly seamlessly. A goggle gap is not desirable. Does not look and contribute nothing to the performance of both helmet and goggles.

Q & A: Problems and solutions when buying and trying on ski goggles:

Below are a few tips to keep in mind:

Q. The ski goggles do not fit well and press on the outside of your eye socket.
A. The goggles are too small, try a medium.

  1. The ski goggles pinch your nose
    A. Tighten the strap a bit and put the ski goggles a bit higher on your nose. If that doesn't work then you need ski goggles with a smaller fit or with a different contour of the bridge.
  2. Space around the bridge of the nose
    A. Try putting the glasses a little lower on your nose. If this does not work, you will need glasses with a larger nose bridge.
  3. The ski goggles are too tight on your face
    A. Try loosening the strap a bit. Ski goggles take some getting used to in terms of pressure on your face, but they should not pinch.
  4. Maintenance ski goggles
    A. Once you have made the investment, you also want to enjoy it for a long time. A few tips to keep your ski goggles healthy.

- Always place the ski goggles on the table with the foam side and not with the lens side. That gives scratches
- Nowadays, every ski goggle comes with a protective cover that you can use to clean the goggles. Use this instead of, for example, a tea towel.
- Is the lens of your ski goggles wet? Dab it with a cloth that came with the ski goggles (do not wipe it) or with a soft tissue. Sweeping creates scratches and you don't want that.
- Did you snowboard in a snow shower and your goggles are wet (including the foam). Place it to dry (not above the stove) and then store it in the supplied bag or in such a handy goggle case
- Do not let ski goggles dry in direct sunlight such as the dashboard of your car.

  1. Tips to avoid fogged up ski goggles
    A. Are your ski goggles fogging up? Then here are a few tricks to fix that.
    - Keep moving. The airflow prevents the goggles from fogging up.
    - Remove snow from your goggles by shaking it off. Not by wiping, that will scratch.
    - Had a tough descent and you're in the gondola up. Chances are that when you put your ski goggles on your forehead, it will fog up. Better to take off your ski goggles and put it in your jacket pocket or in the special ski goggle compartment of your backpack. Leave the ski goggles to dry when you go out for a bite to eat.
