uvex snowstrike VT

In less than 0.1 seconds, the new uvex snowstrike variotronic ski goggles adjust the tone of the lens to the light conditions. This can be done automatically or by the push of a button. Four different lens colors are available.

Color Variant: grey-orange

Faster than the blink of an eye

uvex takes its high-tech uvex snowstrike VT ski goggles to the next level. The futuristic variotronic® technology reacts in the blink of an eye and enables the glass to be tinted in the protective levels S1 (light filter) to S3 (very dark filter). The push of a button is enough to make the four colors – blue, red, violet and transparent – instantly available. With this setup the uvex snowstrike VT guarantees excellent vision in any weather and light condition.

Changing weather and light conditions are the greatest challenge for skiers and their goggles. With perfect blue skies, fog or wild snow flurries – ski goggles must function perfectly in every situation in order to guarantee best-possible vision. Especially in situations such as coming from a blinding sunny slope to a shady connecting trail, many models quickly reach their limits, as the tinting does not react fast enough to adapt to the new light conditions. uvex developed the new uvex snowstrike VT for exactly those moments. The revolutionary variotronic® technology tints the lens in less than 0.1 seconds. The extreme change from light to dark is possible with a laminate of liquid crystals that is activated electrochromatically by an integrated light sensor and changes its light permeability fully automatic or at the push of a button. In addition, the skier has four different tinting colors at his disposal – blue, red, violet and transparent.

Liquid crystals provide ideal tinting 

The goggle glass of the uvex snowstrike VT contains a layer of millions of tiny liquid crystals that can be polarized in different directions with minimal electrical current. This way the uvex snowstrike VT produces darker or lighter colors between the protection levels S1 (light filter) and S3 (very dark filter). In automatic mode, a highly sensitive light sensor permanently measures the light intensity and changes to the ideal tint within a tenth of a second. The tinting can also be manually adjusted anytime with a switch on the goggle strap. The lithium-ion accu is charged with a mini-USB and lasts up to 50 hours.

Four lens colors for every light condition

Four different color shades have you covered in every light condition on and off the slope. The transparent lens without tinting (90% transmission) is useful on slopes through the woods or at night. Red (53% transmission) increases contrasts and is therefore perfect for fog. A neutral blue (32% transmission) is ideal for bright conditions and violet (11% transmission) filters best with bright sunlight and strongly reflecting snow. Independently from the color, the uvex snowstrike VT provides 100 percent protection against UVA-, UVB- and UVC-radiation.
