BIG PICTURE+ OTIS FACTS
OTIS GOGGLE SERIES
We believe that goggles can play a real role in helping to prevent injuries, and thus must be re-engineered to do more to keep skiers and boarders out on the mountain. Studies have shown that the cheekbones, nasal bone and eye sockets are frequent casualties during ski and snowboard accidents. These are, coincidentally, the areas directly underneath a pair of goggles. If properly equipped, goggles can help prevent the worst from happening. The new 3D+ OTIS includes a 3 mm MAP layer all along its contact surfaces to dramatically reduce the forces applied to those areas during an impact. It works independent of the ambient temperature, is notably flexible and contributes to the unique custom fit and high level of wearing comfort.
MARKER has developed the revolutionary NMT OPTICS coating for all lenses (except 4:3). It works similarly to the extra membrane that many animals have to provide extra protection to their eyes. NMT OPTICS (Nictitating Membrane Technology) is an extremely scratch-resistant surface that always supplies the best possible visibility. It prevents water, grease or dust from sticking, and moisture wicks away immediately. Fingerprints, dust and sweat have no surface to cling to and thus are easy to remove. Our NMT-coated lenses offer crystal-clear visibility for years.
MARKER DUAL BIONOMIC lenses are designed in a double-lens construction with an integrated thermal blocker. All lenses are oriented toward the curvature of the human eye to ensure that objects seen through the goggles look the way they really are. Unlike traditional, non-progressively tapered standard lenses, our lenses feature Bionomic Curve Lens Technology (quality class 1, ANSI Z87.1) that deliver undistorted light beams directly to the eye, which ensures 100% correct vision that doesn’t strain the eye.
– Exterior lens (1) Depending on the goggle model, various materials are used to produce the exterior lens: all standard lenses are produced from robust polycarbonate and enhanced with an extremely scratch-resistant coating. They offer 100% UV A/B/C protection up to UV 400 nm. The polarized lenses on the high-end models are produced from TAC (Tri Acetate Cellulose). This makes them ever lighter, clearer and more scratch resistant. TAC lenses offer world-class visibility as well as 100% UV A/B/C protection up to UV 400 nm.
– Inner lens (2) The inner lens is made of acetyl cellulose and is compression molded against the spherical outer lens as part of a heating process. This ensures that the shapes are congruent for 100% undistorted vision. The anti-fog and anti-reflex coatings are ‘embedded’ in the lens to prevent them from rubbing off over the long term. Thermal blocker.
– The interior lens(3) also functions as a thermal blocker, creating an air barrier between the external and interior lenses. This thermal blocker compensates for differences in the temperatures, with the interior of the goggles constantly warm and dry – and fog-free.
All goggle frames are outfitted with the progressive MarkAIR VENT SYSTEM. Design and air flow are engineered simultaneously so that there is perfect lens ventilation and the unobstructed flow of air is guaranteed along the helmet and its MarkAIR CHANNEL SYSTEM. This keeps the inside of the lenses dry and fog-free. The breathable foam behind the inlets and outlets reliably resist the penetration of snow and moisture.
With silicon anti-slip coating
The high-quality, top-durability goggle straps distribute the pressure around the head for the perfect hold without irritating pressure points. Thanks to the heat applied silicon coating on the interior of the goggle straps, they sit rock-solid on any helmet for slip-free performance.
All goggles (except 4:3) come in a lightweight neoprene box with a zipper to make transport and storage easier. The soft lining helps protect the goggles, while the vent holes allow for quick moisture evaporation.
Including one for low-light conditions. THE FRAMELESS DESIGN means that the lenses can be exchanged in seconds.
