Dragon has launched its research and development facility in the remote backcountry of Silverton, Southern Colorado, to coincide with the launch of the revolutionary new APX goggle. And Dragon Europe have got on the Facebook train too.
Sitting at an altitude of over 12,000 feet and dubbed the APX cabin, the facility was designed to test the new goggle in the most extreme conditions by Dragon’s Pro Team, product designers and key retailers.
True to its name, the APX is Dragon’s most advanced goggle masterpiece yet. It features Super Anti-Fog, Triple-Layer Polar-Tech Face Foam, Armored-Venting and Infinity Lens Technology, resulting in a unmatched peripheral vision, comfortable, fogless goggle.
The Infinity Lens design means the goggle is completely frameless offering the most amount of vision, with the least amount of bulk. Dragon’s new design for Armored Venting on the top of the goggle creates a funnel for water to move (rather than absorbed by foam like other goggles). A triple layer of Polar-Tech fleece around your face means the APX is Dragon’s most comfortable goggle to date and if you don’t know what Super Anti-Fog technology is by now, you have been living in a world of foggy lenses.
In other Dragon news, us Euros will be happy to learn Dragon Europe are now making mischief on Facebook. They’ve got some Gigi goggles up for grabs till today and will have all the Eurocentric Dragon chatter you’re after so head over and ‘Like’ their asses.
