If adrenaline sports were inherently safe, they’d be called Valium sports. Or golf. But they’re not, and the benefit to the milquetoast rest of sporting society is the innovative safety equipment adrenaletes concoct—
like the reinvented ski goggle Cornea, made by Swedish action gear company POC. Its easy-to-replace cylindrical lens hangs outside the frame to expand peripheral vision for the likes of boardercrossers and cliff huckers, but it comes in just as handy for any of us zipping down crowded blue squares and black diamonds.
Cornea, $150; pocsports.com
Each day this week we'll feature an innovative new product featured in our October issue's ADVENTURE's Leading Edge story, on newsstands now. Preview it here.
