Bollé Unveils 2017-2018 Goggles

Next Season's Collection Gets Updated Modulator Lens Technology and Three New Models

February 06, 2017

Overland Park, Kansas – With three entirely new models, and significant updates to its popular Modulator (photochromic) lens technology, Bollé is preparing for the 2017/2018 winter season with its most complete and innovative line of goggles to date.

Available with several models in this year's goggle selection, Modulator 2.0 lenses usher in the next generation of Bollé's industry-leading photochromic technology. Made with NXT, one of the lightest, most shatter-resistant and distortion-free materials currently in use, Modulator 2.0 lenses measurably outperform polycarbonate, the most commonly used lens material for goggle applications. New LTS (low temperature sensitivity) technology lessens the effect of cold weather, allowing the photochromic properties of Modulator 2.0 lenses to darken and lighten much faster in extreme conditions.

The new Supreme OTG is among the most sophisticated and feature-packed goggles for riders and skiers who wear prescription glasses. An oversize spherical lens ensures a wide field of view while minimizing focus-inhibiting distortion. Optional Modulator 2.0 lenses provide precisely the right tint in all conditions. Bollé's exclusive FLOW-TECH venting system teams with P80+ anti-fog treatment to eliminate excessive internal moisture build-up.                                                                                                                        

With goggles specifically for women already available in its Ultimate and Performance collections of goggles, for the 2017/2018 season Bollé is adding a "Ladies Only" model to its best-selling Classics line. Shaped and sized for a woman's face, Sierra has a robust feature set, including: FLOW-TECH venting, double lens, multi-layer face foam and P80+ anti-fog coating and CARBO-GLAS anti-scratch treatment.

The latest entry into the Bollé Junior series, Royal is the brand's first youth goggle with a high-performance spherical lens. Completely avoiding the typical compromises of children's goggles, this new model has a full set of features including: FLOW-TECH venting, double lens, multi-layer face foam and P80+ anti-fog coating and CARBO-GLAS anti-scratch treatment.

Modulator 2.0 lenses and the new goggle models mentioned above will arrive at retail next fall. Prices have not yet been set.
