ADATIVE COLLABORATED WITH THE ALPINA SKI GOGGLE DESIGN TEAM TO DEVELOP AND DEFINE THE RECON-READY INTEGRATION PARAMETERS.

CHALLENGES

The Alpina Tech google was derived from the base curves and the ergonomic fit of an existing Alpina goggle model.  The existing reference goggle had a fully framed cylindrical lens that sat in a continuous lens groove in the goggle frame. However, the scope of the redesign was to create a frameless lens design with exposed edges using a spherical lens.

OUTCOME

The result was a new ski goggle design that was derived from an existing model, but that was also radically different.
