Giro emerged out of one man’s obsession to meet the specific needs of athletes in the cycling and ski industries through innovative design. Committed to advanced performance and promoting personal expression, Giro has risen to become one the choice helmet and goggle brands for professional skiers the world-over. The brand’s willingness to sweat the smallest of details has resulted in equipment that will not only protect you on your pursuits but actually assist in getting you there.
Nothing can make-or-break a day like having a crappy pair of goggles. Not only do the lenses protect our sensitive eyeballs from harmful UV rays, they also act as a shield from gale-force winds, snow and debris, should you find yourself deep in the undergrowth. Beyond protection, goggle lenses help us see what’s lurking ahead of us, from snow sharks to hidden variances in terrain, by manipulating light from the sun to work in favor with our eyeballs. To achieve this end, Giro developed its patented VIVID lens technology in partnership with industry-leader ZEISS Optics in 2016; the collaboration was so successful that the same technology is used in Giro’s top-tier goggles heading into this winter. By enhancing clarity, color contrast and depth perception, Giro’s VIVID goggle lenses help you set a laser-focus on the line ahead. Now, the brand’s commitment to function, style and heightened vision culminates in the Method goggle, all-new for 2020.
Editors’ Review | Giro Method
Brand-new to the Giro goggle lineup, the Method comes packed with all of the brand’s stand-out features. Utilizing Giro’s Expansion View technology, which employs a minimalist frame that’s been shaven away in key areas to promote peripheral vision, the Method boasts one of the widest views we’ve seen through a cylindrical goggle. To boot, the VIVID lenses enhance color and contrast to ensure you see every single detail while exploring the alpine. Wearers needn’t worry about goggle fogging, either, thanks to EVAK venting, which uses an ultra-durable, non-absorbent material that simultaneously allows the lenses to defrost while preventing exterior moisture from getting in. With nearly a dozen frame and lens color options to choose from, and the option to switch out straps, you can choose the Method that’s best for you.
