Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on Giro’s Axis Goggle 2017-2018, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
Brand-new for 2017-18, the Axis goggle is a home run from Giro. Giro’s new VIVID lens technology helps boost contrast and color for increased visual clarity and, subsequently, decreased eye fatigue. The frameless design is downright stylish, yes, but also provides incredible peripheral vision. The quick-change lens system is ultra-intuitive through the use of unobtrusive magnets, too. Our extensive testing found that the Evak Vent technology keeps the gnarliest, eeriest, horror movie-esque fog at bay.
