MARKET
What are your main price points for next season?
89,95 and 129.95

How are you segmenting your goggles collection?
We are focusing on bringing high quality products into the midsegment and trying to hit every price point  in there. Up from 89,95 all of our goggles come with 2 lenses (including 1 bad weather lens) in 2 segments: 89,95 without magnetic lens system and the 129,95 for our models with magnetic lens system. Within these segments we offer both cylindric and spherical shapes.

The Styx and the Explorer

What are the tints/colours on trend for 2020?
Black is still doing fine, but with poppy colours we are facing a revival.

Currently not, but dealers are able to create their own straps with us. Due to the low MOQ of 50 pieces we will definitely see some nice customized artwork coming from dealers.

We will start working with Zeiss for upcoming collections. This way we can offer a broad variety of lenses.

Our Revo series will still be the biggest portion of the pie.
