Developed in partnership with Travis Rice back in 2012, the Quiksilver Hubble TR snowboard goggles aimed to meet his peripheral vision needs. Quik solved this by making what must surely be the world’s most curved goggle frame, for an unrivalled ‘wraparound’ style.
The spherical lens is incorporated into the featherweight frame, and swapped out the old-fashioned way. Thanks to the ‘Color Luxe’ lens tech by French eyewear brand Dalloz, these lenses can handle a pretty wide range of conditions right from the off, so there’s less need to change.
“Surely the world’s most curved goggle frame… Stunning peripheral vision”
Those grilles on the front allow cold air to access the goggle below your eye line, freshening things up under the lens and allowing the warmer, damper air from your skin to exit out the top of the frame. Less moisture equals less fogging, so your vision should remain clear all day.
The Quiksilver Hubble TR goggles have only two layers of foam rather than the three found on most goggles in this price range, although anyone who says they can tell the difference in a Pepsi Challenge-style comparison is probably lying. The fleece liner against your skin provides all the comfort you need, anyhow.
While the shaping of these may not be to everyone’s taste, features like a clear, fog-free lens, stunning peripheral vision and an extremely lightweight frame certainly are. For that reason, everyone should be checking out the Quiksilver Hubble TR snowboard goggles.
