SPY Optic™ Launches the SPY® Platoon® Snow Goggle

Biggest, Cleanest, Most Modern Mid-Size Spherical Goggle From West Coast Eyewear Company

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - SPY Optic today announced the release of its Platoon snow goggle, a frame and lens combination promising wide vision and unmatched comfort in all riding conditions.

"Vision is an important aspect of shredding and the Platoon definitely helps me with that," says Danny Larsen, professional snowboarder and SPY team rider. "The wide lens lets the chaotic world of an overeager rider in easier when charging down something that should have been scoped-out better from the top. Seeing stuff before it hits you is cool... black metal inspired straps are even cooler."

The SPY Platoon snow goggle comes with a free bonus lens and features the SPY-patented anti-fogging Scoop® venting system; oversized, flexible frame; impact-resistant, optically-correct and distortion-free ARC (Accurate Radius Curve) lenses; Triple Layer Isotron™ face foam featuring moisture-wicking Dri-Force™ fleece; dual-adjustment, silicone-ribbed strap; and 100% UV protection.

"I like the shape way better than any other oversized spherical goggle," says Eero Niemela, SPY professional snowboarder. "It fits my face more and it's so big that I have no more blind spots. The lenses are incredible for crappy days or sunny days. They are so clear that they let you see things as they truly are, without distortion."

MSRP for the Platoon is $130 to $150, which is available in SPY+TSL+Push, SPY+Danny Larsen, Occult, Crust, Summer Stripes, SB, Special Ops, and solid black or white colorways. Lenses come in a variety of tints in the Spectra™ series for sunny days; Contact™ series for low-light visibility; and basic silver mirror for all-around use.
