Why we chose the Oakley Flight Tracker Snowboard Goggles: It’s bringing toric to the masses.
The Flight Tracker is a direct replacement of Oakley’s longstanding bestseller, the Canopy. They’ve updated the design and increased the peripheral field of view by pulling down the lower corners of the frame. There are loads of colour combos available, so feel free to get creative with it.
The Flight Tracker comes in three sizes (Small, Med, Large) and uses a toric shaped lens which helps to eliminate any visual distortion at the sides. No fancy lens interchange systems here, just Oakley’s solid key-way system, where the lens slots into the channels running along the inside of the frame. Maybe not the fastest system for swapping out, but with Oakley’s Prizm lens tech you shouldn’t need to very often, even when the clouds start to roll in

With enhanced FOV in the lower corners, the Oakley Flight Tracker has been put together with freeride-focus very much in mind. Whereas the Oakley Flight Path, following consultation with a Norwegian ski racer, is all about improving things in the wearer’s upper FOV the Flight Tracker enhances things down below. They’ve done this to make it easier for snowboarders and skiers to look low and, if they’re good enough to be pulling such stuff, spot landings while sending it.
All the premium quality you’ve come to expect from Oakley, without the eye watering price tag. The Flight Tracker uses an injection molded Plutonite lens material to protect against UV with their F3 anti fog coating keeping you clear. The flexible O-Matter frame forms around your face with its triple layer face foam for extra comfort, and they’re even OTG compatible. Sounds pretty good to us.
