The Big Horn is an exceptional snow goggle with a Multimirror lens in an almost rimless design which offers the best possible field of vision due to the optimisation of the frame angle and the spherical lens. Skid Grip, Comfort Frame and flexible headband hooks ensure the goggles fit perfectly on your helmet and on your face.
Small zigzag-shaped, flexible synthethic ties in the forehead and cheek area of the goggle frame plus a more flexible nose construction allow the snow goggles to adapt to the wearer’s individual facial shape particularly well – for superior comfort without pressure points!
Air vents at the sides and bottom of the goggles with special foam covers allows a continous movement of air wihtin the body of the goggles. This disperses moisture, preventing the lens from misting up.
Our snow goggles featuring Hinge Band technology don’t have the goggle strap attached directly to the frame but to movable synthetic hooks on the outside of the frame. This construction provides even better fit of the goggles – especially when they’re worn with a ski helmet.
The spherically curved thermal double lens provides clearly improved panoramic vision. In addition, the enlarged interior volume improves thermal management inside the goggles. And Thermoblock plus Fogstop effectively prevent fogging of the goggles.
Alpina snow goggles with 180+ View have a larger field of vision than the 180 degree field required by the CE standard. A special goggle frame and extra-large, curved panoramic lenses make this possible. This ensures a better overview – and earlier recognition of dangers in the peripheral field of vision.
In conventional goggles the structure of the goggles holds the front lens in place, but with the rimless variant it is the rear lens that is secured. This means the frame can be reduced to a minimum allowing bigger lenses and a wider field of vision as the double lens is positioned further forward. Rimless goggles are extremely suitable for powder skiing, as the powdery snow will not collect on the rim of the goggles, impeding visibility. Added to this, they are also unbeatable for style.
Vents in the lens ensure a defined routing of the air flow and ventilation of the goggle lens. This effectively prevents fogging.
Double Lens Thermoblock
An air chamber between the two layers of a double lens creats a thermal block and prevents freezing.
Up to 16 mirrored layers are applied to this lens to provice protection against bright dazzling light and infra-red light.
Alpina’s specially developed lens technology offers winter sports practitioners greatly improved vision. The ruby red lens tint reduces the amount of blue in the visible light, increasing the contrast of the snow and allowing the wearer to quickly make out the details of the surroundings. Thanks to the brightening effect of the lens, the contours and other features of the piste are easier to discern even in difficult weather conditions (e.g. snowfall, fog, diffused light). A polarising film of the highest optical quality grade is integrated in the lens to complete the Quattroflex effect: distracting stray light and glare are filtered out, further enhancing contrast levels. Reflections are reduced to a minimum, making it much easier to see icy areas and dangerous situations and react to them more quickly.
