Description

New for this season from POC is the Zonula Clarity Comp, this super stylish and slick goggle from POC offers a superb wide field of view and as the name suggests the toric shaped clarity comp lenses which have been developed in partnership with Carl Zeiss gives you the best clarity and vision adding to your confidence while either competing or just cruising on the snow. Triple-layer face foam offers all day comfort and with an anti-fog treatment to the inner lens for fog-free all-day vision. Outriggers on the frame help the quick lens change process, making it less likely to damage the surface of the goggle and a Ri-pel™ and anti-scratch process protects from oil, dirt and water allowing you to keep these goggles pristine for longer. The frame is also constructed from 47% bio-based materials minimising the impact on the environment, which is an added bonus on top of an already superb product.   


Features & Specs: 

Clarity Comp Lens: Spektris Blue, VLT 22%

Unique Spektris mirror coatings are tuned to complement and enhance the properties of Clarity lenses for optimal vision.


Clarity Lenses
Clarity lenses redefine what it means to see on snow. Developed by POC together with optical industry leader Carl Zeiss, Clarity lenses heighten sensory impact and the ability to react to dangers. Clarity lens technology filters specific peaks in the colour spectrum to enhance precision vision and amplify and define every detail on the snow. With lenses for sunny, partly sunny and overcast conditions, vision is always at its sharpest. 

Ri-Pel™
A transparent hydrophobic & oleophobic technology which offers 3 different properties in one single coating. Dirt, water, sweat, salt, oil, sunscreen, and dust slide off the lens surface easily, ensuring clear vision and protecting your eyes. Also, the lenses are resistant to fingerprints and other contaminates. Whenever a lens with Ri-Pel™ gets dirty, it is extremely easy to clean.

Toric Shape
Toric lenses are similar to spherical lenses which are intended to improve optics by mimicking the shape of the eye. Unlike a spherical lens, a toric lens has a tighter radius horizontally than vertically which can provide enhanced peripheral vision. This shape also maximizes the possible vent volume in the goggle for an unmatched field of vision and fog-free performance all day.

VLT
Each lens has a Visual Light Transmission, percentage unit that describes how much light the lens will allow through to your eyes. The higher the VLT percentage, the more light goes through (great for dark conditions), the lower the percentage the less light goes through (great for bright conditions)

Buying guide

Seeing clearly makes a huge difference in this sport, this guide will help you understand what the best option is for you.

Lens Shape

Lenses come in two main shapes: cylindrical and spherical.

Cylindrical lenses are usually cheaper to produce, which means you can get a goggle with great features and save a bit of cash (not to mention they look pretty great as well).

Spherical lenses do have a few advantages over cylindrical lenses. They work in-line with your eyes in order to provide the best possible field of vision and the least amount of distortion. They also have fewer points at which the sun hits the lens, meaning reduced glare and no sun spots. The slightly larger area internally also creates more room for temperature control and airflow, killing off any chances of fogging.

Lens Tint

Lenses are all rated on a scale using VLT (visible light transmission) percentages. The higher the percentage the more light will be able to pass through (i.e. a great lens for a sunny day will be around 10-20% whereas a lens for overcast conditions may sit closer to 70-80%).

Nearly all lenses now are UV proof and many lenses are also polarized in order to provide the best protection from the sun. Sun reflects very harshly off the snow, and can easily cause fatigue and even damage to the eyes over time. Having a lens to protect against this is critical.

Photochromic lenses have the ability to change depending on the conditions. This gives you a broad range of conditions they work well in rather than a single percentage. This is a great option for people who want to stick to mainly one lens.

One vs. Two Lenses

If you are choosing a goggle with one lens, it’s usually a good idea to find one that offers a VLT that sits more towards the middle of the spectrum. This ensures the best results in a range of conditions. Because realistically no one lens can do everything, more and more goggles are starting to come with two lenses. This gives you the ability to cater to the conditions. Lens interchange has also been refined dramatically, and on most newer models takes no more than a few seconds.

Optics

Most brands now offer special optics within the lenses that give the lens dramatically better performance in varying conditions. With better contrast control, color enhancement, and no distortion, these new technologies bring out the best possible results from stormy to blue bird days. Vivid, Chromapop, Sonar, and Comp are among some of the names you’ll see these optics under. Each brand will have their own name, but they all achieve a similar goal.

Anti-Fog

All goggles come with some sort of anti fog solution on the lens or even etched into the lens. Either way, it is important to remember to stay away from touching the inside of the lens as much as possible.

Frame Sizing

Goggles come in all sorts of sizes. Fit is critical in order to get the best performance out of your new goggle. If the goggle does not fit flush around all the contours of your face, the air that can get in will cause your goggle to fog no matter how high-end it is. The best way to go is always to try a few on and see what fits best.

Women’s fits offer the same great features as the unisex options, but in a much better fit for smaller or narrower faces.

Comfort

Typically as you look at the range of goggles a more basic goggle will have a single layer of foam on the face, whereas a higher-end goggle will have multiple layers of different densities. This can make a big difference for comfort. If you ski often and are out for longer periods of time it is a good idea to get something that will be less likely to cause pressure points. This will also help with the goggle lasting longer.

Ventilation

Each frame has different ventilation systems. Having better ventilation can make a huge difference in anti-fogging, giving you much better vision. Most newer goggles also feature more heavily reinforced ventilation ensuring a longer life.

OTG (Over-the-glasses) Goggles

There are now many options for goggles that fit comfortably around your glasses by providing a recess in the frame. Look out for the OTG annotation to find this feature on different goggles.

Helmet Compatibility

One important thing to consider when buying goggles is how they fit with your helmet. While it may fit your face perfect, if a goggle doesn’t fit your helmet as well you won’t be comfortable skiing all day. Having a helmet that fits well with goggles is also an amazing air exhausting system, keeping things fog free. Most newer goggle and helmet brands tend to work well together for the most part.

Goggle Protection

Whenever you’re not using your goggles it’s important to keep them covered to avoid scratches and damage. A goggle case is usually the best option. These are a sturdy case that will keep your goggles protected from any impact.

Goggle sleeves come with most goggles and are another great option. Minimal impact protection, however they do keep them from scratching. These are also a great option for cleaning the lenses.

Goggle SOC provides a great solution to avoiding scratched lenses on your ski breaks, during apres-ski, and after the day is over. You can toss them in your pocket, and whenever you’re not using your goggles they easily fit over the lens.
