i dont mind spending a bit of money to protect my eyes in all honesty.
The people who are really out of touch with reality are the ones rioting over the newest nike shoe, or paying thousands of dollars to get it early. A couple hundred bucks for some eye protection is not that far fetched.
The DYE snowboarding team continues to grow with the signing of their newest addition, Dan Brisse. The partnership between Brisse and DYE happened organically, as both the company and the rider share a desire to create projects and products that showcase the level of intensity behind professional snowboarding. Dan’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of the sport has earned him 2 X-Games Real Snow victories, multiple epic video parts and widespread magazine coverage. Brisse understands in order to evolve; you must embrace risk and change, qualities that embody the DYE brand.
“Brisse wants to be the best at what he does, and is willing to put in the extra effort to get there. He goes for it, until he stomps it. That attitude, in combination with his riding style, is a perfect fit for Dye. We are eager to support Dan’s involvement with major video production, and provide him the gear and resources he needs to keep expanding our vision of what is possible on a snowboard.” – Joel Kramer, Marketing Manager
“I’m excited to join forces with Dye as my new eyewear sponsor. They make some of the best goggles on the market, and have a solid team that I enjoy riding and hanging with.” – Dan Brisse
I picked up a pair of CLK's last weekend. I like them so far (only ridden once with them) I think they look great, about the same field of vision as Dragon APX but maybe just a tad bit less.
The buttons on the frame were stiff when I first messed with it but after playing around with it a few times the ease of clicking out the frame started to kick in.
The hard case is nice (i like it better then the APX one) It comes with a sleeve inside of it that you slide extra lenses in, it does seem to be a little small for the size of the goggles so at times you have to fiddle with them in order to get it to fit into the case without squishing things.
Overall I am very happy with them I just thought i would take a little bit of time to clarify some things people might ask.
