“Transcend” is definitely an appropriate name for Zeal Optic’s new line Â ski goggles. Not only do they surpass most most goggles in terms of how they look, they also appear to be the first goggles with an integrated GPS display. Skiers can also get information on speed, altitude, temperature and distance traveled.
All of the information is displayed to the skier in their line of sight without obscuring their viewâ€”and the options can be controlled with the three buttons on the right hand side. A demo video also reveals that Zeal is planning to roll out new functionality over time like trail caller ID and text message display, buddy tracking, online data sharing, trail maps, mountain traffic reports, camera and recording features, virtual run previews, lift line information, music controls, emergency calling and more.
Trancend is available now for pre-order in two versions: a photochromatic version for $450 and a polarized version for $350, with a ship date of October 1st.
