Mt Hotham Falls Creek - - FRONT PAGE -

IT’S not very of­ten that I get re­ally ex­cited about new a prod­uct. This new Prizm lens from Oak­ley is a real game changer.

Af­ter over 15 years of snow lens op­tics re­search, Oak­ley has cre­ated the Prizm lens to pro­vide supreme con­trol of light trans­mis­sion, whereby colours are pre­cisely fil­tered to max­imise the con­trast and en­hanced vis­i­bil­ity of the snow.

We are now able to the see the con­tours of the snow in all light con­di­tions, be it on that white-out snowy day or bright blue­bird spring day.

The Prizm lens now al­lows for hav­ing one gog­gle to use in all con­di­tions with­out sac­ri­fic­ing per­for­mance.

The hu­man eye re­acts to cer­tain colours bet­ter than oth­ers, so the Prizm lens fil­ters out the colours we don’t need to see and high­lights the colours we do want to see.

The rose tint in the Prizm lens high­lights the blue colour spec­trum in shad­ows, al­low­ing for bet­ter con­trast of the snow, thus we can see the bumps, con­tours and lit­tle de­tails of the snow bet­ter than ever be­fore.

Bumps has the new Prizm lens avail­able in all high end Oak­ley gog­gle mod­els; Air­brake, Flight Deck XL, Crow­bar, Canopy and the A-Frame 2.0.

These mod­els come with ei­ther of the three Prizm lens; Rose, Jade Irid­ium or Black Irid­ium, with the Air­brake gog­gle com­ing with both the Rose and Black Irid­ium Lenses.

Bumps is also one of the first stores in the world with the new Flight Deck XM gog­gle which is the smaller sib­ling of the Flight Deck XL, now fit­ting more va­ri­ety of faces, in­clud­ing Over The Glasses (OTG) ca­pa­bil­ity.

Whether you have been skiing for 20 years or two days, the new Prizm Gog­gle is go­ing to im­prove the way you see the snow. Re­mem­ber you can’t ski if you can’t see. Well it’s very dif­fi­cult.
