Zeal Optics’ Transcend are a set of goggles that represent a seriously awesome combination of style, utility and technological innovation.

Hailed as the “world’s first GPS-integrated goggles,” Zeal Optics’ Transcend come with a built-in display that shows their wearer important information such as speed, temperature, and even their altitude. Best of all, however, is that the goggles can be plugged into a computer after a day of usage in order to superimpose the collected data onto a Google map. This unprecedented computer integration allows users of Zeal Optics’ Transcend to analyze their skiing and snowboarding performance like never before, turning each ride into an experience that can be documented, studied and ultimately improved.
