We think we’ve found the most hardcore snowboard goggles in the world from Recon. Their ‘Transcend’ goggles is the only pair in the world that provides you with real-time feedback including speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance traveled, total distance travelled, chrono/stopwatch mode, a run-counter, temperature and time. Transcend has GPS capabilities, USB charging and data transfer, and post-processing software all with a super easy-to-use, futuristic interface. Recon hints to us that soon there may be an open API app development and download community – with apps!
Everyone loves apps, right? Applications for you to see everything you like through your new Transcend goggles. There’s two models – Transcend SPPX, which is fitted with an SPPX polarized and photochromic lens, and the Transcend SPX which just features an SPX polarized lens. Both rock. Both roll. Hopefully you wont roll though when you’re snowboarding with them.
The Zeal Optics frame design shows the user info on a micro LCD screen which appears to hang six feet in front of them. Glove-friendly buttons help the user navigate the full-color dashboard and screens. Using the application Recon HQ (which comes free with the goggles) you can upload and track info about your ski sessions instantly. That means contests, real-time sharing, and all sorts of other wacky new-world situations.
