UVEX Univision Snowboard Goggles Do Something

Illustration for article titled UVEX Univision Snowboard Goggles Do Something

We don't snowboard all that often (since that would require leaving the house), but these UVEX super goggles seem to be the kind of thing we'd use on our trips down the slopes. The UVEX Univision has an AAA battery inside to allow the glass to shift from the light lens in low light situations (cabins) to the dark lens in super bright (snow) situations.


Why's this cool? Because now you won't have to take the goggles off for an entire 200 hours (the life of the battery). Your buddies will call you a weirdo, but they're just jealous that they didn't have $230 to spend on a pair of super googles. Just try not to talk in a Rainier Wolfcastle voice the whole time.

This is not developed for staying on while entering cabins! Photochromatic lens are great when you're in a low performance situation but while sliding through slopes at high speed I can see how this would be good.

Now I wish there was a lens that would help during times when the lighting is even, when you can't tell where the snow ends and sky begins, when those dips and bumps become invisible.
