AIRWAVE 1.5 HYPERDRIVE – OAKLEY

February 2014

The first time I wore my Oakley Airwave goggles, I was skiing on the Tofanina, off the slopes above Cortina d’Ampezzo. An unforgettable experience: between pine forests and panoramic slopes, feeling as if the chaos of everyday life was kilometres away, Airwave kept my feet on the ground. Geo-localisation, speed, incoming calls, messages and music playlists: all there on a small screen to the bottom right of the goggles, linked by Bluetooth to a wrist accessory very similar to a wristwatch. Airwave kept me aware of where my friends were, as they also only use Oakley, and share the experience on social networks. I would never have imagined wearing so much technology on the slopes, but I gave in. Airwave, with its mirrored lens, is as cool as you get today without being hyper-fashionable – which I like. A lot. I felt a little like Tom Cruise in Minority Report, and the high-speed goggles almost made me feel like a better skier. Be careful not to lose sight of the reality of the slopes! – by Alberto.
