Recon Transcend Snowboard Goggles

recon-zeal-transcend-goggles-1

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.

    Price can be a major determinant for most people when it comes to buying decision. Well, one great thing about Dragon is that they have goggles in every price range. For the novice snowboarder or skier, you can start with a less expensive model of goggles and see how well they will fit your needs.

    Yep, these goggle flash different statistics across the inside of the lens so you can report to the stranger on the chair lift that you just hucked a 10 foot air at 20 mph. And if you want to prove to your bros how hard core you are, there’s USB port so you can download all your stats onto your computer. A rechargeable lithium ion battery runs everything for 7 hours. Zeal is offering two versions of the goggle – one with an SPPX Polarized and Photochromatic Lens and one with just an SPX Polarized Lens. The Photochromatic lens adjusts automatically due changing light conditions.

    There are different opinions out there regarding the relationship between skiing and snowboarding. Hardcore enthusiasts insist that skiing and snowboarding are two totally separate sports. However, it cannot be denied that skiing and snowboarding have at least two distinct similarities: both are done on a snow-covered hill, and both involve speeding down that snow-covered hill.
