Are there ski goggle models specifically for people who wear glasses?

uvex has special ski goggle models for people who wear glasses. You can wear your corrective lenses underneath them.
These goggles are called OTG models (OTG = over the glasses).

Are there special ski goggles for skiing with poor visibility?

There are suitable lenses for all weather conditions. Contrast-enhancing lenses support good vision even with poor visibility. You can find additional information at uvex lens technologies.

Do all uvex ski goggles provide 100% UV protection?

All uvex goggles are already equipped with specially coated lenses as part of their basic design. Independent of the lens color, they contain a UV filter that protects 100% against harmful UV radiation.
uvex = ultraviolet excluded.

Are all uvex ski goggles helmet-compatible?

95 percent of all goggles manufactured by uvex are helmet-compatible. In other words, the goggles are flush with the helmet and thus provide for draft-free skiing pleasure and lots of wearing comfort.

How do I clean my ski goggles properly?

Clean the lenses of your ski goggles with a lot of water without additives. Then just shake the lenses off and let them air-dry. If necessary, you can also carefully dab the lenses.

Do not treat the lenses with solvents or household cleaners and use the textile bag included or a lint-free cloth for cleaning.

The inside of the lens has an anti-fogging layer. This highly functional antifogging alloy is scratch-sensitive. You should therefore treat the inside very carefully and in no case wipe it off.

If snow gets into the goggles, then just shake it out.

Always store your ski goggles in a container provided for them (cardboard box, bag) and avoid extreme temperatures over 50° C.

How do I recognize online fake shops?

We appreciate your interest in our innovative products. Unfortunately, our products are repeatedly offered in so-called fake shops. Fake shops are online shops that sell products but do not ship them after payment. In part, these shops even use original product photos and descriptions. As a rule, customers have to pay in advance by bank transfer.

To spare you bad experiences, we would like to give you some tips and indications that help you recognize fake shops. What you should look for:

  • existing and complete imprint (with register details and authorized representative)
  • existing terms and conditions (not a bad machine translation)
  • secure payment options (not just pre-bank transfer)
  • existing cancellation policy
  • plausible prices (especially low prices may be an indication of fake shops)

We wish you a lot of fun with our products.
