Continuing with the onslaught of great new goggle technologies that are readily available at Spareparts stores everywhere, we are proud to be among the first to introduce yet another mind-blowing piece from another great brand. This time it's Von Zipper, coming straight out of California with a new design that showcases something they are not exactly known for; incredibly high-end technology. While VZ has had their share of goggles that keep pace with the heavy hitters, they have at times been known more for style and flair than ground breaking designs.
When I first saw this piece in action I wasn't really sure what to think, this is more than likely a result of my brain exploding when I fully wrapped my head around things. The goggle is not only large and extremely easy to wear and see with, but it also comes with a fun little addition that makes fighting with changing conditions a thing of the past. They call it "Presto Change-O" and it is seen here on The El Kabong ready to make a massive impact on the goggle world.
With the simple flip of a switch and the push of a button, you can swap out your lens for whatever it is that the hill is throwing at you. As I mentioned before though, the greatness doesn't stop with the lens system, there is also some luxury to be found in the frame design. It is big, wide and slimmer than anything Von Zipper has brought to the market before, and certainly most of the players in the game to this point.
So from the sounds of things, the big dogs on the technical side of the market just may be shaking in their winter booties at the sight of some competition from an unlikely source. Get into your closest Spareparts store right now, and ask one of our friendly staff members to show you The El Kabong which is part of the great collection of goggles for the winter of 2013 from Von Zipper.
