Oakley Prizm

oakley Prizm

Why riding with a single lens is now an option.

Often, in a snowy environment, everything is white, depth perception is reduced and detail is lost due to a lack of contrast. Oakley Prizm uses precision color tuning to draw out crisp detail in the snow without getting washed out. Prizm accentuates contrast and increases visibility of snow contours, bumps and textures so you can identify and avoid hazards, and pick your line accordingly. In addition, Prizm enhances vision in a wide range of light conditions from bright sun to snowy skies without switching lenses. As a result, Prizm Snow lenses allow you to see clearly, react faster, and ride with more confidence. You will never see snow the same way again.


Oakley Prizm goggles are available at boardertown.co.nz and from Boardertown stores nationwide.
