Collection: Ski mountaineering Goggles

Ski mountaineering goggles

Ski mountaineering goggles by DEMON are designed and created to face the mountain in all light and atmospheric conditions.

Ski mountaineering is an increasingly popular discipline because it combines adrenaline with total immersion in nature. For those who love snow and mountains, ski mountaineering represents the ultimate freedom.

It is essential to carefully choose all the materials that make up the equipment, as greater caution is required in the high mountains. Every ski mountaineer constantly seeks safe, high-performance materials and technologies to maximize enjoyment at every moment of the expedition.

How to Best Protect Your Eyes

To best protect your eyes during the climbing phase, we have created a line of technical sunglasses for high mountains, suitable for very sunny, moderately sunny, and cloudy weather.

For the descent and ascent in very specific light conditions, ski mountaineering goggles are commonly used as they offer greater protection for the eyes from the wind and from the fresh snow kicked up by skis or snowboards.

Below you will find a guide on which lenses perform best based on various light and atmospheric conditions.

Ascent and Descent During Snowfall

Climbing during snowfall is stressful for the eyes due to poor visibility and the monochromatic nature of the snow. We find ourselves immersed in white. In these cases, it is essential to increase safety by using a transparent lens that acts as a protective barrier to prevent snow from reaching the eyes without darkening the vision in any way.

DEMON has created two ski mountaineering goggles with transparent lenses, ideal for these specific light conditions.

For climbing in particularly poor light conditions, it is recommended to use goggles with transparent lenses instead of glasses.

Descent in Cloudy and Sunny Weather

The descent is the most fun part of ski mountaineering, with adrenaline rising, the wind blowing stronger, carving, navigating the trajectory, and enjoying the fresh snow, being the first to chart that path. These factors enhance the excitement and make the ski mountaineer enjoy the experience even more.

The descent is a fundamental aspect, and rule number one is having the perfect vision. A ski mountaineering goggle must allow the athlete to see every bump, depression, and ripple in the snow and ice throughout the entire descent.

For days with cloudy weather, we recommend using high-contrast orange lenses, which are also ideal for shaded areas where brightness drops drastically for a few seconds.

Using this particular lens, DEMON has created multiple models of ski mountaineering goggles with orange lenses, as it is the most popular choice among those who practice this discipline.

FUTURE differs from other models because it has OTG (Over The Glasses) technology. A specially designed internal sponge and a unique mold shape allow for the accommodation of an optical frame. BIG SKY is the ski mountaineering goggle designed for athletes who use prescription lenses. It can be worn together with your optical frame.

It supports optical frames with large dimensions. For example, an optical frame measuring 14.00 cm in width by 5.00 cm in height fits perfectly.

Descent in Very Sunny Weather

In very intense light conditions where an orange lens may seem too light, the use of tinted lenses is recommended, such as internal smoke lenses. These lenses promote more effective visual relaxation in conditions of very strong and extreme light, which are amplified by the reflective icy surface.

For athletes who face these particular conditions, DEMON has created technical models with smoke lenses characterized by very strong external mirrors. These models are practical without sacrificing the aggressive look.

Like the FUTURE model, ALPINER features OTG (Over The Glasses) technology and supports simultaneous use with an optical frame.

A crucial factor not to be underestimated is the compatibility of the ski mountaineering goggles with the helmet. Each goggle in the collection is meticulously designed and crafted to ensure the athlete achieves the perfect fit with every type of helmet.

We consider this aspect fundamental, prioritizing safety as the foremost concern in the design process, followed closely by comfort.
