Product Details

Frame

Developed around the shape and features of the human eye, coupled with the pantoscopic angle of each frame, the goggle frame is minimized to stay out of the rider’s sight. Optimized fit for medium to large faces.

K2 helmet-driven topline design for seamless helmet compatibility

Minimalist external bridge structure for maximum lower field of vision

Slotted nose bridge design for optimal comfort and fit

Lens

Optics by Carl Zeiss VisionCreators of some of the world's most advanced optics, each lens is made of tough polycarbonate and treated with a hard-coating for superior performance and extreme scratch resistance.

Double-layer spherical hard-coated lens, anti-fog, 100% UVA/B/C protection - Grade 1 ophtalmic standard

Custom-designed spherical lens shape for maximum field of vision and pantoscopic angle

Ri-Pel®Ri-Pel® is a proprietary hydrophobic vacuum coating that is applied to each one of K2's Optics by Carl Zeiss Vision K2 lenses. Designed to minimize scratching and smudging, expel residue from water, sweat and fingerprints and enhance overall visibility, Ri-Pel® offers the necessary lens protection required by today's riders.

Octic MirrorOctic Mirror lenses utilize a unique combination of base lens color coupled with an 8-layer dielectric mirror technology to deliver a stylish, performance-driven mirrored lens. The result is an attractive multi-layer mirrored lens that is designed to balance out harsh sunlight and glare, or enhance vision during low-light conditions.

Tripic MirrorTripic Mirror lenses use more modest hues such as Vermilion, Brown and Gray combined with a proprietary mirror technology to produce a series of performance-driven mirrored lenses with subtler tints.

Ventilation

Helmet-Compatible Lens Ventilation System for maximized airflow

Strap

3D Woven Design

Triple silicone-backed straps that keep your goggles firmly in place

Custom-engineered strap brackets that optimize goggle/helmet fit

Face Foam

Triple-Layer Fleece-Lined Face FoamCustom-fabricated, triple-layer fleece-lined face foam delivers consistent comfort and allows for close face-to-lens proximity, maintaining the ultimate pantoscopic angle.

My last goggles were stylish and comfortable, made by Scott. But they ended up being totally useless because of the fog build up after a few hours. These K2s have perfect visability! It made my college boarding trip with my buddies a much more enjoyable experience. Not only did I have no trouble with fog, but the overall visability was crystal clear... day and night riding. I highly recommend.

I should mention: the frame does seem slightly large at first. Maybe my last few pairs were small? Be sure to get the proper size, cause they already fit pretty big.

Mirror lens started to loose it's beauty painting after first season. During second season it goes further and further. The worst part is, that after 3 days of skiing, they started to evaporate, so the vision was blurred and fogy. Now they are useless, so for that sum of money, I would expect more...

        Very Comfortable goggles. Add a lot of light and definition to the terrain. Easy to adjust and they don't move around. I have a narrow face and getting a google whose fit is comfortable enough and still provides a good seal is hard. These do both awesomely.

              Using the product for skiing is phenomenal. The price tag on it is alright, but you have to be careful with the product. Not even two times after using it the lense scratched, but K2 gives a year long warranty. Overall great visibility and great product.
