Focus on: Bolle Ski Goggles

It’s the last of the ski season at the moment and whether you are new to the slopes as a beginner or a seasoned sportsperson, one thing that is essential to your kit is a good set of ski goggles.

Today I thought we’d take a closer look at the Bolle company and why their goggles are amongst the most sought after for skiers around the world.

The Bolle company first originated in 1888 in the small village of Oyonnax in France where a local businessman sold combs and hair ornaments to local people. The Second World War saw the company move towards the large-scale manufacturing of Nylon and from there on to safety goggles and spectacles.

Since 1950 the company has moved on to eyewear for sports such as cycling and skiing, and today their ski goggles are considered amongst the best in the field for performance and craftsmanship.

Their website markets a number of specific technologies that the goggles feature.

These include; their custom equalizer vents which help to stop lenses from fogging up; their patented Modulator technology which allows the lenses on their goggles to change and adapt to differing weather conditions such as sunshine or snow; and the sport optical system which allows prescription adapters to snap into place for clear vision on the slopes.

It is this optical system which is one of the reasons why Bolle goggles are listed on the SelectSpecs website because we believe that no matter the level of your prescription, you should not be restricted from taking part in the sport you love.

Let’s take a look at some of the best Bolle goggles currently available:
