Climb every mountain and ski any path with the world's first GPS-enabled goggles
For backcountry trailblazers, Recon Instruments' new Transcend goggles introduce advanced technology for carving your own path while providing essential protection from sun and snow. The GPS-enabled goggles "require minimal interaction" yet boast an impressive amount of features, including a full-color micro LCD display, Google Maps overlay, real-time statistics (speed, altitude, vertical, run-counter, temperature and more), and keep a log of averages, maximums and minimums for each run over the entire day.
Vancouver-based Recon fitted the goggles with lenses from Boulder, CO-based Zeal Optics, who created two versions—polarized ($400) or for an even greater sun shield, polarized and photochromic ($500). Both styles are PC and Mac adaptable and through a micro USB port you can easily upload your stats at the end of the day.
The CH25 is a showcase of creators and innovators from a broad range of disciplines who are currently working to drive the world forward.
