"SHRED.—a brand that was founded by Ted Ligety, an American Olympic giant slalom gold medalist, and materials engineer Carlo Salmini—brings ski-racer tech to the masses. Mr. Salmini ran research projects in collaboration with the MIT Sports Lab to develop a specific combination of lens dye and semi-polarizing filter. Result: improved depth and terrain perception in a white world. The contrast boosting lens (CBL) functions like noise-canceling headphones for the eye by absorbing light rays which emphasize contrast on snow, and reflecting all others to mute optical noise." - Brigid Mander, The Wall Street Journal.

FAQs

How does the semi-polarizing filter in the Contrast Boosting Lens™ 2.0 work in combination with the lens dye?

The semi-polarizing filter in the Contrast Boosting Lens™ 2.0 works in tandem with the lens dye to selectively filter out certain wavelengths of light. This process enhances the contrast and clarity of the visual field, particularly in snowy environments where distinguishing terrain can be challenging. The filter reduces glare and reflections from the snow, while the lens dye amplifies the contrast, making it easier to discern details and contours on the slopes.

Can the Contrast Boosting Lens™ 2.0 be used in all weather conditions, or are there specific scenarios where it performs best?

While the Contrast Boosting Lens™ 2.0 is specifically designed to excel in flat light conditions, it is extremely versatile and excels in a variety of lighting scenarios. The technology behind the lens ensures improved depth perception and terrain visibility in both bright and overcast conditions. However, the most significant improvement is noted in flat light, where traditional lenses might struggle to provide clear visibility.

Are there any differences in the visual experience between the various goggle models equipped with Contrast Boosting Lens™ 2.0?

All the goggle models equipped with the Contrast Boosting Lens™ 2.0 share the same advanced lens technology and the visual experience is substancially the same no matter the design differences in each model. Factors like the size and shape of the lens, the frame design, and the fit do not influence the overall visual experience. All of SHRED. goggle models are also designed in order to maximize field of vision, through the SHRED.wide™ functional design approach which further enhances the experience of the user while skiing or riding.
