Oakley Flight Deck Sneak Peek

clock 3rd September 2014 | comment0 Comments

As if we weren't excited enough for winter, we have managed to get a sneak peek at Oakley's brand new frameless Flight Deck goggles that are dropping this season. If you are starting to think about getting new gear for the winter, here’s what we thought of the new collection from Oakley.

The premium Flight Deck goggle range from Oakley is inspired by the visors of fighter pilots, with Oakley’s first frameless design.

Frameless Design

By placing the lens on the outside of the frame this allows unparalleled, maximum vision on the mountain, not to mention a smart, fresh look fit for the slopes while the Low profile frame design provides improved compatibility with helmets.

Increased Contrast

Utilising Prizm contrast lenses, the Flight Deck allows the wearer to identify subtle changes in the snow with even greater clarity, while maintaining the signature anti-glare capabilities of Oakley snow goggles.

Quick Lens Change

Lens change has never been easier with Switchlock technology for a quick change in seconds thanks to no frames or magnets holding the lenses in.

What’s not to like?

For me it’s all about frameless design. I want to see everything on the slopes as if I wasn’t even wearing goggles and with this large lens you can do just that. Whether you are riding on piste or in search of fresh powder you can spot any of those bumps in the snow with this Iridium lens. It’s a slick design that you can wear with confidence knowing you have one of the best pair of goggles on the mountain.

What are you waiting for? Pre-order now

To get yours in time for winter you can pre order the product already from Shade Station and they will get sent out to you as soon as they arrive, plus if you manage to find a lower price online – they will even match it for you. Take a look at the whole collection.

What to Pack for Spring Skiing

clock 16th April 2014 | comment0 Comments

Spring Skiing Packing List

‘What do I pack for a spring ski holiday?’ we hear you ask. Read on and you’ll have no problem packing for spring skiing with our handy spring skiing checklist.


Sunscreen

1. Sunscreen

The sun is out, meaning that you’re bound to catch a few rays while you’re on the slopes. The sun reflects off of the snow making it more intense than usual, putting you at a higher risk of sunburn. Avoid the nasty peeling tomato look and be sure to pack your sun cream! Protective lip sunscreen is also a must, as is moisturiser to keep your skin feeling happy and hydrated.

----

Goggles

2. Goggles

You may not want to burn to a crisp, but you do want to get yourself an awesome goggle tan so that you can show off to your friends and family back home about your recent ski trip! You also want to protect your eyes from the glare of the spring sun so that you can enjoy the views and see exactly where you’re skiing. Goggles are sturdier than sunglasses and have much less chance of breaking, especially if you take a tumble.

----

Layers

3. Layers

Leave behind your thickest, warmest, heaviest winter thermals and instead, take lighter spring ski wear that you can layer up. You’ll get hot quickly on the slopes with the sun beating down on you, so soft shell jackets, thin fleeces, hoodies, t-shirts and vest tops are your best bet.

----

Novelty Clothes

4. Novelty Clothing

As the season comes to a close, there are more parties, meaning more silly outfits on the slopes. Get your onesie at the ready and be entertained as you see fellow dinosaurs, bears and leopards whizzing past you. If it’s hot enough, you might even want to layer up your swimwear so you can do a spot of sunbathing in between runs.

----

Pro-Plus

5. Pro-Plus

With all the end of season parties and festivals on the go, you’ll more than likely be waking up with a sore head in the morning. Be sure to bring some Pro-Plus / Lucozade Tablets / energy drinks to give you the energy to power through the day! The earlier you’re out on the slopes, the better, so that you can make the most of the spring conditions. It’s also advisable to take a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated during the day.
