Those orange & yellow Oakley goggles from the Olympics… so hot right now

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 the Harmony Fade-edition Flight Deck, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.


Flight Deck Goggle, by Oakley (Harmony Fade Collection)

$210

The Flight Deck goggle, as you dang well know—because we plug this beauty left and right—draws inspiration from the helmet visors worn by fighter pilots, i.e. its field of view is frickin’ spectacular. The large frame size and clean, rimless design not only provides downright badass looks, but also outstanding helmet compatibility. Plus, Oakley’s PRIZM lenses allow you to see über-fine details in the snow when you’re ripping to the max; whether it’s sunny or cloudy, you’ll be damn impressed by your ability to decipher contours in the snow. The end result is an enhanced riding experience. And now, this winning package is literally winning… like, it just won a heap of Olympic medals.

To honor the athletes competing on the world stage in South Korea, Oakley unveiled its brand spankin’ new, limited-edition Harmony Fade collection; its bright, hard-to-miss color scheme is inspired on the one hand by Oakley’s PRIZM tech and the associated boost of color and contrast. Additionally, says Oakley, the orange color represents “the fire that burns inside each and every competitor,” while the yellow is meant to reflect “the sun that lights the path of athletes brave enough to pursue their dreams.”

If you were glued to the tube during the 2018 Games, you’ll have noticed the Harmony Fade-edition goggles—which, in addition to the Flight Deck, includes the Flight Deck XM, Line Miner, Line Miner XM, Fall Line, Airbrake XL and Canopy, plus the Wind Jacket 2.0, Jawbreaker, EVZero Path, Radar EV Path and Flake 2.0 X sunglasses—adorning the faces of Olympians including Øystein Bråten, Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Shiffrin, Aksel Lund Svindal, Chloe Kim, Jamie Anderson and Red Gerard. Those athletes collectively earned nine medals in Pyeongchang, six of them gold. So, if you’re looking to inject a bit of greatness into your ride, look no further.
