Oakley has been making some of the best snow goggles since 1975, and its new Fall Line XL is no exception. Taking its name from the line down a mountain that is most directly downhill, the Fall Line XL is the latest addition to Oakley’s Line Series of cylindrical-style snow goggles. These are optimized for a wide variety of faces and are engineered to fit perfectly with most helmets. Thanks to Oakley’s Ridgelock Technology, you can also change the lenses with ease. We took a look behind the lenses of the Fall Line XL to see what makes them one of the best pairs you can get. You can also give them a test run down the mountain at Oakley Week — taking place in Whistler (Feb 13 – 16) and Mammoth (March 25 – 29). There you will be able to ride with Team Oakley athletes while testing Oakley’s latest offerings.
1. Wider View: Inspired by Oakley’s Line Miner and fusing the large field of view from a rimless goggle, the Fall Line XL is optimized for a wide variety of faces and guarantees an expansive field of vision.
2. Prizm Lenses for Any Weather: Prizm is engineered to dramatically enhance detail and help improve performance. The technology works by providing ultra-precise color tuning — like with the Prizm Snow Persimmon lens which is perfect for heavy snow and overcast weather conditions.
3. Ridgelock Technology: Fall Line XL includes Ridgelock Technology makes changing lenses quick and easy so you can also be kitted out exactly for the weather conditions at hand — and you won’t need to worry about harsh conditions slipping through the lens seal either.
