The FLOAT

Thu, Nov 07, 2019



With the launch of our latest product, the Inuit, together with two new lens technologies, we also have let something go. That doesn't mean that our assortment is getting smaller, but we're just exchanging our previous XE-one goggles with our latest XE2 lenses. The name of the model changes from 'XE-One' to 'FLOAT' to give our upgrade it's very own identity. 


Same model, new XE2 technology

The Float comes with our latest XE2 lens, which is an improved version of the XE1 lens. The XE2 lens is build up by has two layers of high-quality optical-grade polycarbonate, which makes the XE2 both thin, light, and virtually impossible to crack.

The XE2 lens features a high-contrast specially developed for skiing and mountain weather conditions. We have added contrast-enhancing dyes to fine-tune the light spectrum, thereby increasing color contrasts and reducing glare from sun and snow. The violet lens provides enhanced color recognition and eliminates white and blue light to make variations and cycles in the landscape appear more transparent. The XE2 lense will come to an advantage when getting an overview of the shape of the ski slope and the cycles of the snow, enabling you to see and avoid any bumps and snowdrifts when skiing.

The high-contrast lens helps you see more clearly in difficult and foggy conditions, reducing eye strain and increasing comfort in otherwise obscure conditions. As you go down the piste on high speed, you will more easily be able to maneuver through, around, and out of bumps and jumps on the road with the high-contrast lenses, which the naked eye usually would overlook.

 

On the inner side of the XE2 lens, we have used an anti-fog coating as well as a ventilation system that provides optimum fog prevention throughout the day.

On the outside, we've added nano-coating to make the lens scratch-resistant and added a clear super-hydrophobic and water-repellent coating that makes the XE2 easy to clean.

You can choose The Float with either green or silver Revo-mirror coating, the same coating as NASA is using to protect their astronauts from harmful UV light. Our Revo-mirror coating filters harmful blue and white light rays, allowing only the light that is beneficial to your view on the piste.

Revo coating is a polarization technology that protects you 100% from direct glare and reflections from, for example, water and snow. Revo coating's color grading is also a contrast enhancer for the eye that looks when it eliminates glare and sharp reflections.

Last but not least, the XE2 has full UV400 protection (UVA + UVB). 


Easy and interchangeable look of the best quality

Perhaps you're already the happy owner of our previous XE-One goggles and know about the comfort and immobility of the goggles when you're rushing down the slope. Of course we have not removed choose features on our new FLOAT ski goggle. The frame is manufactured in the flexible quality material called 'thermoplastic polyurethane,' which makes the Float super durable and easy to wear.

Then we'd added three layers of soft foam on the inside of the frame, which protects your beautiful face from the cold wind, making the FLOAT comfortable to wear for a full day in the snow.

The straps come in a new design, whereas you choose either black and or white anti-slip straps, with three lines of silicone to prevent The Float from gliding or slipping so that they'll stay where you want them throughout the day.

Furthermore, we have produced limited editions pro straps inspired by our hero and icon, Glen Plake - the freestyle god above them all, where you may sense the same 80's vibe as from our Kickstarter campaign her. The straps can be replaced with just two clicks.

Extra gear for your skitrip

On bright days and in snowy weather, it is even more essential to able to see clearly. Therefore, together with your FLOAT ski goggles, you get an extra set of overcast lenses in yellow. The yellow overcast lens gives you better transparency and helps you see clearly when the weather is not.
