While it might be getting late into the ski and snowboard season, it’s never too late to get a pair of high tech goggles to rock the slopes. The Transcend GPS Goggles made in partnership by Zeal Optics and Recon Instruments are the world’s first GPS enabled polarized ski/snowboard goggles providing you with real time data in a dashboard display. See your speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance traveled, total distance traveled or set it to chrono/stopwatch mode, a run-counter, temperature or time. Sleek graphics are completely non-obtrusive for front and peripheral vision, making it the ultimate solution for use in fast-paced, alpine environments.

The Transcend GPS was awarded the 2010-2011 ISPO Boardsports Award in the highly competitive field of snow accessories. See what all the excitement is about by getting your own pair today!

Does anyone know if these goggles have an ANSI impact rating? I have a special use in mind for them, but I don’t want to buy them if I can’t rely on them to not shatter.

@Jeremy Gilbert
There is no documentation that these come with an ANSI impact rated lens. You can get a quote from Zeal Optics for any special material and lens color request on their goggles. Just give them a call at 888-454-9325.

You would be hard-pressed to find a more advanced ski goggle than the Zeal Optics SPX Transcend GPS enabled snow goggle with spherical polarized lens. The price is high, but there’s no doubt you are getting a lot for your money. The polarized, spherical lens gives you terrific visual clarity and is extremely well-made. The goggle feels solid and looks great, without any cheap-feeling components. You never get the sense that the manufacturers cut any corners
