How to Pick A Goggle Lens: Anon Lenses

Posted August 1, 2019 @ 3:21pm | by Andrew Plourde

Anon has been in the snow goggle game since ’01. Backed by Burton and driven by innovation, Anon has consistently raised the industry standard. Their advanced lens technology makes any day on the mountain fun, regardless of conditions or visibility.



Proprietary technology like Anon’s magnetic lens change system (Magna-Tech) allows you to swap out your bluebird lens for your low-lights in seconds… literally seconds. Quick change lenses are essential to keeping up with any type of condition.

Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI) is another clutch Anon perk. Anon offers MFI neck warmers and balaclavas, further showcasing how seamless gear integration is the future. MFI accessories are designed to be fog free, and compatible with all of Anon’s 2020 product line. Magnets are tighttt, and right now Anon’s magnetic game is second to none.

It can be overwhelming when selecting the right lens, especially when you have over 10 to choose from. Anon utilizes SONAR lens technology, developed by Zeiss optics (German engineering at its finest). SONAR provides the ultimate clarity when bombing the slopes, giving you heightened snow contrast to pick the perfect line.

With a wide variety of spare lenses to add to your goggle quiver, it’s important to understand Visible Light Transmission (VLT%). Basically, the higher the VLT%, more light will pass through the lens. On a bright sunny day, you would want a lens tint with a low VLT%. When it’s a white out, you need a high VLT%.
