Skiers and snowboarders looking for an affordable pair of high contrast snow goggles may be interested in the new Inuit goggles that are available with two new lens technologies: XE2 and XEp. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the ski goggles which have launched via Kickstarter this week and are now available from £76 with worldwide delivery expected to take place before 2020.
“The easy interchangeable XE2-lens is an improvement of our XE1 lens. The dual-layered lens is manufactured of a grade 1 optical quality polycarbonate, which makes them both thin, light-weight, and practically unbreakable. They provide a high-contrast view, and the violet base secures enhanced color recognition unveiling details normally invisible for the naked eye. With an XE2 lens, contrast-enhancing dyes are added to fine-tune the light spectrum and thereby increase contrasts and reduce glare, developed explicitly for snow sport and mountain conditions.”
“The XEp lens is a photochromic version of the XE2 lens, meaning it adapts to any weather condition, automatically. The lens reacts to a combination of sunlight and UV-rays, resulting in photochromic molecules constantly recalibrate as the light changes. This causes the lenses to darken in only up to 20 seconds when it is sunny and vise versa then the sun disappears. During these rapid transitions, full UV400 protection is guaranteed. We’ve manufactured the lens with a patented molded-in film technology, which ensures the highest optical quality, uniformed color change as well as weather resistance. “
