Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Last year, the folks at Zeal titillated gear junkies the world over when they introduced the world's first snow goggle with an integrated GPS display. This year, they're expanding the product line and building models with a little friendlier price tag like the Transcend GPS PX Polarized Goggle. Designed with Zeal's industry-leading optics and featuring GPS-enabled tech from Recon Instruments, the Transcend GPX PX represents a whole new way to experience the mountain. Much like your car's dashboard, the GPS display window sits below your field of view and shows you real-time data and helpful stats to help you navigate the terrain. Glove-friendly buttons let you toggle through the different displays, and, when the day is done, you can upload your data to your PC or Mac and relive the experience on Google Earth.

Perfect for tracking your progress, the Zeal Transcend SPX GPS polarized snow goggles provides real-time information on a heads-up display right in front of your eyes. GPS-enabled goggles display navigation, communication and performance-based information inside the goggle itself. Speed, temperature, timer and location information is readily available to track, download and log. Non-obtrusive graphics allow complete front and peripheral vision, and an easy-to-use interface toggles through screens. Lightweight, pliable and strong frames provide all-day comfort during long days on the hill. Passive Airflow System ventilation brings cool outside air in and moves warm, moist air out, reducing the likelihood of fogging. No Fog lens treatment is infused into the inner lens so it will never rub off. Triple-density foam molds to your face for a secure fit and wicks away uncomfortable moisture. Spherical lens offers a broad field of view and excellent optical quality. Polarized Rose lens cuts out horizontal glare so you can quickly navigate your way down the slopes; allows 13% visible light transmission. Polarized Rose lens works well in bright conditions. Includes a microfiber cleaning bag. Zeal Transcend SPX GPS polarized snow goggles fit large faces.

Goggles and sunglasses designer Zeal Optics has partnered with Recon Instruments to produce the Transcend Goggle snow goggles. These are the first goggles to feature built-in GPS capability and an onboard display. The Transcend goggles provide real-time location, speed, and altitude data while you ski, snowboard, or snowmobile. Out of the box the Transcend goggles are impressive. They feature Zeal's contemporary styling, and have a substantial feel. Although they look a little bulky, the goggles do not feel heavy or too large when worn. They are well vented (I never had a fogging problem) and provide great visibility and optics. But what really sets the Transcends apart from other goggles is the on-board GPS and data display. A small pod built into the lower edge of the right lens area contains a tiny color LCD display mounted behind a compact lens.
