Well let’s see what will be possible this season. We don’t yet know what Covid has in store for us regarding measurements and the impact they will have on the snow business
How are you segmenting your snow goggles and what are the main price points in each segment?
We segment our goggles by size and they come with either magnetic or the classic lens interchangeability

We also have a fun polar bear desing for the kids line and a variety of different print and colour options for rest of the collection
Did the restrictions at resorts last year impact the sell-through of the FW21/22 collection? If so, how have you addressed this issue?
That was definitely a challenging season and we don’t think the challenge is over yet. We kept some carry-over styles in the line, so at least the styles are not “last season.”
Have you had problems with the supply of FW21/22 product? If so, how have you addressed this issue, and will this result in changes to your FW22/23 sell-in?
We were lucky enough to not have any problems on this side, all our products were delivered on time.
The Goggle Four/ Goggle Four S is our team riders’ favorite goggle. The clean, almost frameless design with an extremely large field of vison fits perfectly with helmets. Each goggle comes with two lenses that are easily interchangeable, thanks to the magnet system. Available in 2 sizes for regular to large faces and small to regular face
