What is THE hot new trend in your goggle line for FW17/18?
Dragon has expanded its LUMALENS technology from two to every lens (except clear and dark grey tints). Now whichever goggle tint suits you and the conditions best, it will have LUMALENS technology. The groundbreaking lens technology offers increased clarity and contrast, and reduce eye fatigue at the same time, allowing you to see more, react faster, and perform better.

Lenses: What are your most popular tints? Are there any technical innovations to talk about for next season?
With the success of 2016-17’s LUMALENS release, we wanted to extend the benefits of it to nearly the entirety of our lens family. We are expanding LUMALENS to include the entire range (minus clear and dark grey tints). Since the LUMALENS line included nearly all the tints, whichever tint suits you personally, will still lead the industry in performance.

Are you doing spherical or cylindrical or both versions?
LUMALENS is available in both premium spherical and cylindrical forms.

Frames: What system(s) are you working with? Any innovations / new features here?
Dragon is continuing with Swiftlock, which we believe is the quickest lens changing system around, and is available in the X2, X2s, and NFX2. The frameless design legacy that Dragon pioneered is alive and well in the X1, X1s, NFX and NFXs models, as well as offering more traditional frames in the Rogue and LilD. Lastly, we are proud to offer Over-The-Glass frames—the D1OTG and D3OTG—for the consumers that require those designs.

What about the colour and pattern highlights for 17/18? Are they tied to other parts of your range / product offerings?
Dragon has created a very strong colour and graphic story for the 2017-18 goggle line, inspired by the outdoors, snowboarding and skiing. Additionally, we collaborate and draw inspiration from our top notch athletes, seen in the Signature frames. You will see a consistent colour and graphic story across all styles, with the injection of our athlete signature designs. Whether you desire subtlety or boldness, we have you covered.
