Think big is the motto of the uvex big 40 goggles – the large goggle is a true attention-grabber for those big powder days. To better keep an eye on your surroundings in steep couloirs and changing light conditions, the spherical full mirror lens of the uvex big 40 measures a full 40 mm relief from the forehead to the projection of the nose.
One turn, the skis sink into deep powder and fine snow dusts your face. The flakes obscure your sight for a moment before they glide off the goggle. You wipe the rest off easily with your gloved hand and continue into the forest over the pillows of soft snow. Our Design Team developed the new uvex big 40 for exactly these moments.
The uvex big 40 is not only a style statement, but comes equipped with excellent technical features as well. The frameless design of the oversize-powder-goggle expands your field of vision to 186° and ensures that powder slides off the goggles easily. The uvex big 40 is available as the pure full mirror (FM) model, in order to ensure perfect vision with changing light conditions in steep couloirs or on wooded slopes. It automatically shades the fully mirrored glass between the protective levels S1 (light shading) and S3 (very dark shading), depending on the light intensity. Of course all models provide 100% protection against harmful UVA, UVB and UVC radiation. The tried and tested supravision® coating reliably keeps the spherical glass from fogging up in all weather conditions and ensures that your line of vision remains clear at all times. Preformed goggle pads that adapt to the contours of your face and silicone prints along the goggle strap ensure that the goggle is securely attached to the helmet so that nothing stands between you and the next deep powder turn.
