How are you segmenting your goggles collection?
We mainly segment by fit: small/kids, medium, large.

For 20/21, what’s the main product news you have in store for retailers?
We will introduce a new goggle that combines the features of two of our popular goggles: The look of the AMP goggle with the lens change system of the Goggle Two. Our team riders asked for this and have already ” snatched ” the first photo samples from our office. The new Goggle Four has a stylish thin frame design with a large cylindrical lens for best all-round visibility. Equipped with a magnetic lens changing system, the glass can be switched in seconds in changing light conditions. A small tab on the lens makes it easier to grab the glass. Since the Goggle Four, like all our goggles, comes with an extra bad weather lens, it offers an all-round carefree package for every winter sports enthusiast.

What is the secret to selling high-quality snow goggles?
Well, first of all, it’s important to make high quality goggles. We focus on all the functions and materials that a user likes on snow during the day. Frame and fit must be perfectly matched to the face, the lens must provide distortion-free peripheral vision and the lens must be easy to change.

How do goggles fit with the rest of your line?
Our goggles fit perfectly to our helmets. A gap-free fit is vital, as only then helmet and goggles form a unit and can deliver best performance.

In terms of design and graphic, you can always find the combo Goggle & Helmet that lock up with graphic and colors. Our Art Designer is doing a great job at making these two pieces fit together in style.

Any new shapes for 2020?
As I mentioned up top, the Goggle Four is new for us. New cylindrical shape with magnetic lens change technology.

What are the tints/colours on trend for 2020?
We put some cool sewn-on logo emblems on the straps (Goggle Two), work with stripes in the same colour spectrum (Goggle One), have full pattern checkered prints in black and white for adults and kids. All graphics and colours can be found in our helmet collection and you can find some really nice combinations. Kathi Macheiner from the Austrian design studio Adhocrates collective and mother of The Snowboarding Family (https://www.ridetsg.com/snowboarding-family/) designed a yeti-party design for our Expect Mini 2.0 kids goggle.

How important is helmet compatibility in your strategy?
All our goggles are designed to integrate perfectly with helmet use. We offer different size to fit our different helmet models and sizes.

TECH / ECO
What new technical features are debuting for 2020?
There is no new substantial tech for 2020-21. We are continuing to focus on pushing our Magnetic Lens Changing Technology.

Which lens technologies/coatings are key for next season?
Green, blue and rainbow chrome tints are well appreciated. Our mirror coatings allow for reduced glare reduction and reduced VLT percentages. Of course, all of our lenses are 100% UV protective and are all dual-lenses.
