designed to create a completely unique alpine experience, the airwave 1.5 snow goggles by optics specialists oakley combines a built-in, heads-up display (HUD) and integrates Wi-Fi, GPS and mFI bluetooth along with a host of onboard sensors. users can access a full range of information transmitted directly to the eyes through oakley’s high-performance lenses, which offer comfort and protection. the re-developed HUD delivers crisp, widescreen graphics using innovative prism technology. integrated in the goggle is a device called ‘MOD live’: an augmented display which is perceived as a 14-inch screen that appears to be five feet away. the HUD is designed for an unobtrusive view, and semi-flush lens geometry ensures wide peripheral vision. in addition, the GPS feature accurately measures how fast you are moving down the slope, tracking the distance, height and airtime of your jumps with analytic software.

the built-in bluetooth allows users to view incoming calls and text messages, and lets you locate and track friends that have the oakley airwave goggle or the downloadable smartphone app. users can also access music players such as spotify or pandora, as well as control their phone’s playlists on the slopes – all with up-to six hours of on-mountain battery use. oakley’s ‘switchlock’ technology makes changing lenses quick and hassle-free; F3 anti-fog technology is paired with a dual-vented lens design to keep vision clear. plutonite lens tints in dark grey, persimmon, black iridium, fire iridium, HI yellow iridium and VR50 pink iridium filter out 100 percent of harmful UV rays.
