What is the difference between a safety goggles and a high-visibility helmet?
The new Supreme High-Visibility Helmet is the latest innovation to come from Japanese high-tech company Supreme Ski, and is designed to help protect your head during an avalanche.
According to Supreme, this helmet has been specially designed for skiers to be able to protect their eyes in the snow.
“Our helmets protect our eyes by having the shape of a high visor that keeps your head from moving while protecting our eyes from the sun,” said CEO Tetsuya Ishihara in a statement.
The helmet’s design uses a “tungsten lens,” which has been created to reflect light back to the wearer’s eyes in order to help them see in the dark.
The lenses are made from an “odourless, non-flammable polycarbonate” and are designed to absorb and reflect the heat from the snow in order for the wearer to maintain proper eye protection.
It’s also said that the helmet has “breathing” technology, which allows the wearer, when in a high altitude, to inhale deeply and exhale deeply.
According the Supreme team, this innovation will be particularly helpful for skier who are in a precarious position due to an avalanche or in extreme weather conditions.
The Supreme High Visibility Helmet will be available to purchase on June 9th for $299.99.
