On the cover The XP Cross-Performance line spans three sub- categories – Terra, Hydra and Glacia – to provide optimal functionality with features that adjust to demanding outdoor conditions, creating a customized experience on land, water or snow. The Glacia category is purpose-built for those who push their limits touring, hiking and exploring the backcountry, serving as the perfect companion to keep them prepared for the changing environments and challenges they will face on their journey. The Excursion X and Latitude X sunglasses come equipped with removable sun shields for blocking harsh UV light associated with high-altitude, while the detachable leash and interchangeable cable temples allow for added security and comfort. These styles are available in lens tints that are best for snow-based activities, whether it’s a sunny bluebird day or cloudy conditions. These styles are also designed with injected plant-based resin, rendering these frames as eco-friendly. Offering all-day comfort on or off the beaten path, this square-like frame is enhanced by a six-base curvature and ProFlex rubber on the nose and temples. Lewis is quick to tout Zeal’s goggle offering for this winter as well. “Zeal Optics has a universal prescription insert that fits securely inside any Zeal Optics goggle frame. This keeps your prescription in place and optically aligned so you can hit the slopes in our Optimum, Polarized or Automatic+ lenses built for all conditions,” says Lewis. The Portal XL is Zeal Optics’ new rimless frame design with unsurpassed peripheral vision, upper and lower ventilation, and a triple layer face foam. Portal XL is equipped with Zeal Optics revolutionary Rail Lock System that allows you to guide, slide, and lock your goggle lens in place anywhere on the mountains. OP Zeal Optics has a trio of new sunglasses that are bound to be popular with outdoor enthusiasts this winter. “We strive to make every Zeal Optics frame compatible with your prescription and your lifestyle,” says Zeal’s director of marketing, Mike Lewis. Boone is a light and airy style from Zeal that can keep up no matter where the day takes you. The four-base curvature frame is equipped with ProFlex rubber providing a soft and comfortable hold. Durango is strong and adventure-ready. With a wider fit, the low-profile sunglasses are perfect for taking in mountain or ocean vistas with a huge field of vision. And for lightweight lovers, the Campo is your go-to because it weighs in at under one ounce. Optical Prism | November 2019 17
