The Snowsports Industries America (SIA) Snow Show in Denver, Colorado, is the largest gathering of the winter sports industry. Mr. Luxury Ski reports from the show floor for the scoop on NEXT winter's hottest gear.
Mr. Luxury Ski
Oakley is among Mr. Luxury Ski's go-to for advanced lens technology on the slopes and timeless style off the slopes. Now the brand is adding its first helmet line-up, completing the perfect helmet-goggle pairing. The top-of-the-line MOD 5 is three winters in the making, designed for the rider demanding protection, comfort, performance and style. The patented modular brim system (MBS) offers a small and large brim option for optimum fit with vents drawing hot air up from your goggles. Four adjustable lid vents put you in control of the temp and Boa lacing adds customization. If you take a tumble, dual material outer shell provides a lightweight feel and professional strength while MIPS technology protects from rotational impacts. This is a brain bucket with panache, available in six colors, including Alpine Camo, pictured above.
Pair your MOD 5 lid with Oakley's new Line Miner Goggle with Prizm Inferno, a revolutionary heated lens technology actively combating goggle fogging with a battery-heated defroster built in the lens. The goggle's removable rechargeable battery heats the lens rim, which transfers heat evenly across the lens to combat fog and frost, whether you're on the lift or you just wiped out. The tech is perfect for the Line Miner Goggle, which provides plenty of peripheral vision, while sitting closer to the face and putting less pressure on the nose. Available in all Prizm lens colors, Line Miner Prizm Inferno lenses are interchangeable, allowing for an upgrade from a standard lens.
There's something about the WindJacket 2.0 that has Mr. Luxury Ski craving sunny spring skiing. This is a first of its kind sunglass-goggle hybrid by Oakley built to preform on and off the mountain. These shades take the aesthetic of the classic Oakley eyeshade and upgrades it with snow riding features: wind protection foam, helmet compatibility and even Prizm lens technology.
