Interchangeable Lenses - Giro is known for innovative advancements and, with their flagship goggle the Contact, they have built a game-changing new design. Featuring Giro's revolutionary Snapshot Lens Interchange System, the Contact goggle allows for virtually effortless lens swapping to meet ever-changing weather and light conditions. The Snapshot system utilizes self-locating rare earth magnets and a secure locking mechanism for fast, on-the-fly (or on the chairlift) lens changes. Upon "Contact" with the frame, the lens simply snaps into place and then locks down securely. Changing lenses is virtually effortless. Whether sun or snow, with the Contact goggle and the free additional bonus lens you will be able to meet the mountain head on.
Frame and Lens - The large semi-frameless design features Expansion View Technology (EXV) for the best field of view possible. You will never lose Contact with the terrain when equipped with Giro's top of the line Zeiss Toric Spherical Lens. Both lenses included with this goggle have a spherical design that mimics the shape of the human eye to give the best optics while reducing glare and distortion. Your peripheral vision with this lens is exceptional.
Comfort and Fit - The first thing you will notice when you put the on the Contact goggle is how good it feels. That's the Giro triple-layer Face Foam with Microfleece Facing. It's comfortable and maintains a great seal. Ventilation around all sides of the frame helps you stay cool and dry while the anti-fog coating keeps your field of vision clear. The Giro Contact's Seamless Compatibility allows the goggle to integrate flawlessly with any Giro helmet.
Giro, based in Scotts Valley, CA, is a worldwide leader in the design, development and marketing of premium, high-performance protective gear and accessories for action sports and active lifestyles. Since 1985, Giro has been at the vanguard of helmet design and innovation, and Giro helmets have become synonymous with protection, style, and performance. Helmet technology has improved steadily since the mid-1980s.
Ski racing helmets and bicycling helmets used to be clunky things that were heavy and poor fitting because helmet construction technology lagged significantly behind the science of head protection. Thus the cyclist or skier who wanted head protection was limited to heavy motorcycle-like helmets with little or no vents. Then in 1984 came a new protective standard, ASTM F2040, and an ingenious designer by the name of Jim Gentes who had the vision to create lightweight, well-vented yet highly protective headgear that could achieve this new ASTM F2040 standard.
Gentes founded Giro Sport Design in 1985 and brought the first Giro helmet to market in 1986, an oversized, expanded polystyrene (EPS) bicycle helmet that came with interchangeable bright-colored Lycra cloth helmet covers. Because it had no hard shell, this new Giro cycling helmet was incredibly lightweight. It was also extremely well vented. And with the interchangeable covers, Giro brought style into the mix. One day you could ride wearing a red Giro helmet, the next day you could wear a blue Giro helmet. Over the next two decades, Giro continued to advance its bicycle helmet designs. Giro was able to apply much of its experience in constructing bicycle helmets to manufacturing ski helmets and snowboard helmets. With more units sold than any other manufacturer, Giro helmets are quite simply the leader in protective gear for your head.
