Word From The Wax Bench...

PRODUCT SPOTIGHT – BLIZ NORDIC OPTICS

This is obviously the after photo.

Few things can make you look instantly cooler than a sweet pair of sunglasses. If you’re aim is top shelf spiff, just take a look at the start line of a World Cup Nordic Ski race. There is a kaleidoscope of shiny, bright colors covering those high intensity peepers, and they’re not just for show. If you’re zipping down hills at high speed, you want to keep your eyes from freezing up so you don’t wind up in the woods (just ask John about that!), plus they help reduce glare when you’re on bright white snow in the sun.

The Matrix.

Easily the most popular model on this year’s World Cup circuit has been the Bliz Matrix. We’ve mentioned this model earlier in the season, but with a recent release of new colors, we wanted to make sure everyone has a shot at picking up a pair of these cool new shades. With a wide angle, solid lens, they provide great coverage side to side, but what makes them unique is that the lens extends higher up on the brow so you can still get coverage even when your head is down in an attack position. They are vented to reduce

fogging, and come in colors ranging from 80s radical, to sleek and stealthy.
The Profile.
If you want to protect your eyes, but prefer more of a goggle fit and even wider coverage, you’ll love the long time favorite ProFlip Max model. The ProFlip comes in four styles: standard, Small Face (for slimmer skulls), OTG (over the glasses), and Kids. Of course all of these glasses are *guaranteed to make you ski faster.
*OK, not guaranteed, but you’ll look great!”

Product Spotlight – ANGi Equipped Bike Helmets

We like to venture out into remote parts of the woods on many of our bike rides. While the woods and seclusion are a big draw for so many of us who bike and recreate in our community, it can also create situations in which an accident can become dangerous and potentially life threatening. While some of us may be a bit stubborn about technology creeping ever more into our recreational activities, a new bit of innovation from Specialized has us (and our loved ones) very excited.

The Propero 3 Helmet.
The next level of evolution in helmet technology has arrived in the form of ANGi and MIPS equipped models within the Specialized line. ANGi stands for Angular and G-Force Indicator, which is a small module attached to the helmet that can sense an impact and notify your emergency contacts via the Specialized Ride App on your phone. MIPS stands for Multiple Impact Protection System which is an inner structural lining of the helmet that has grown in popularity and effectiveness over the last several years to help protect riders from multi directional and rolling impacts. The two systems together, in addition to years of high quality helmet construction, leads to what is now assuredly the safest helmet you can wear.
For general FAQs about the specific functionality of the ANGi device and Specialized Ride App, refer here, or better yet, stop in the shop to try one on for yourself or the cyclist in your life that you want to keep track of. We have received stock of both the Ambush Comp (Mountain Bike) and Propero 3 (Road Bike/Multi Purpose) just in time for the holidays! —Ian
