Summit crowdfunding new goggle with instant magnetic lens swap system

British eyewear brand Summit launch new Talisman goggle with polarised lenses and innovative magnetic lens change system

We are excited to share that UK Snowsport eyewear brand Summit are launching their 2018 Talisman goggle through Kickstarter, offering early supporters up to 40% off the normal retail price.

The Talisman features Summit’s ‘Magneteyes’ technology, one of the fastest lens change systems on the market. The eight point quick release magnets release instantly when you pinch the frame, meaning you can swap between low and high lenses in as little as two seconds. It’s easy, simple and quick – even on the shortest chair lifts.

Summit have been developing snowsports eyewear and specifically ski goggles since 2011, with a focus on providing high quality products at an affordable price. In addition to the Magneteyes, they also use high quality lenses with a polarised filter to eliminate glare and improve optic clarity, which are encapsulated to safeguard against moist ingress (the most common form of fogging).

Over the last 7+ years in their quest to create the perfect pair of snow goggles Summit’s production costs have nearly quadrupled. More technical designs, hugely improved functionality and dramatically upgraded components have all contributed to the increased costs –  which is why they are turning to Kickstarter.

Simon Reddy, Owner/Founder of Summit, elaborated: “It would be easy to say it’s taken 18 months to create Talisman, but in reality it’s taken 7 years. Learning something new from each design, we’ve brought it all together into one special product, our magnetic masterpiece – Talisman”

Head to their Kickstarter campaign to learn more or to pledge your support to an upcoming British snow sport brand.
