Blast Tunes While Boarding With These Smart Open Air Audio Snow Goggles

Whether you’re a skier slicing up a field of moguls or you’re a snowboarder stomping jibs in the terrain park, adding some audio to the mix can only further your fun out on the slopes. Headphones and helmet systems are out of the question — if they’re not outright prohibited, they’re too prone to falling out. And while you could pack a portable speaker, it’s not exactly an inconspicuous way to enjoy your music.

Luckily, Ryidar has developed just the solution to such a dilemma: LinkLens. By combining a pair of premium snow goggles with a compact Bluetooth audio unit, the startup has effectively succeeded in bringing safe listening to the slopes. In practice, this is because they rely on a combination of dual-mic Active Noise Cancellation and Open Air Audio. So, while the former blocks out sound when you want it to, the latter strategically places the audio ports ahead of your ears in order to keep you aware of your surroundings. Add to that features like an ergonomic frame, a large spherical lens, as well as some high-density triple-layer foam, and the result is a pair of goggles whose potential speaks for itself. Back them on Kickstarter for $147 and up.
