In our latest report from ISPO we get to see the Dragon dude show off two of their premier models, the all-new APX and Gigi Rüf’s signature model.
Firstly, the APX is a brand new model to Dragon’s broad stable of goggles and boast some damn fancy technology and design that we think might be unique to this pair of eye-catchers. It has what the dudes at Dragon call the Infinity lens, which in layman’s terms means the lens goes right to the edge of goggle. Say what? Yup, unlike other goggles the lens doesn’t appear to be housed in the frame. So what does this do? Well according to Dragon it gives the wearer enhanced lateral and vertical vision, which can only be a good thing on the hill. This also makes the lens more easily changeable, which is also rather useful as you will know to well having struggled in the past with gummy frames in the cold. Like other goggles in also has plenty of venting and some cushy Polar Fleece on the face foam to make that interface between man and goggle all that more comfortable. So there is the APX.
Next up is Gigi’s signature model goggle, which is basically a souped up Ranger frame with a red ionised lens, and some pretty unique styling, including the first ever customised Dragon logo, just for Gigi.
Now that rocks!
