POC Lobes

If you’re paying attention to the World Cup races this weekend, you’ll see POC goggles on athletes like Julia Mancuso and Bode Miller. The relatively new Swedish company has made a mark on the racing circuit, but they make slightly less fast looking goggles for the rest of us, too.

POC’s mission is to give you the largest field of vision possible, so all of their goggles have huge lenses, and the Lobes, with its dual spherical lens and low-profile frame is no different. 

A thin, cellulose propionate inner lens prevents fogging, while a tougher polycarbonate-based outer lens prevents scratching. That means nothing will mar your vision on the race course, or where ever it is you need to get fast.

$130-160, www.pocsports.com

Austrian Ski Photos

We sent Tom Winter to Austria to see if he could become an Austrian, or at least grind skis in some factories or fit boots in some shops. Turns out, all he did was ski powder. Here are shots of his trip.
