Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between your lens and the normal double lens in the market?
Our Ski Goggles feature an innovative double lens with both lenses laminated together; this means larger field of vision, no reflection and superior anti-fog compared to normal double lens. Traditional ski goggles feature 2 lenses (the outer and the inner one) separated by a thin layer of air, this causes refractions and with time allows impurity to sediment between the two lenses lowering the clarity of the ski goggles. In the past the 2 lenses were needed to help preventing the fogging, but with the improvement in the materials available nowadays better performance can be achieved by using a multi layer polycarbonate lens with the anti-fog film directly laminated to the main lens. Several competition grade ski goggles adopt a multilayer technology similar to the one we use to allow racers to have better clarity and contrast at high speed while keeping the ski goggles fog free

The frame is 8.27 inches (W) x 3.74 inches (H)
What is the VLT (Visible Light Transmission) of the lenses?
The PINK and ICE BLUE ski goggles have a VLT of 16%,
The RED ski goggles have a VLT of 19%,
The GREEN ski goggles have a VLT of 22%,
The YELLOW replacement lens has a VLT of 88%.

What is the danger of wiping the fog resistant material?
We use a premium anti-fog film for all our lenses. Cheaper, lower quality ski goggles use a coating. Normally the coating is really delicate and you should not wipe the internal of the goggles as you risk removing it, with our film you can use the provided cleaning cloth to clean the inside of the goggles without risking to remove it
What is the maximum size of Eye Glasses that fit in the frame?
Do these ski goggles offer UVA & UVB protection? 6
Are these lenses categorised as spherical or cylindrical?
Is there a warranty on your Ski Goggles?
Do 6fiftyfive Ski Goggles come with a case?
Which lens is best for low light, (overcast) conditions?
Do you make ski goggles for children?
Not at the moment, but we are thinking about it. We launched the first 6fiftyfive Snow Goggles in January 2019 and we focused in designing a premium product that could fit the needs of a professional skier or snowboarder. This includes one of the largest peripheral visions available on the market. Some of our customers told us that the goggles fit a 13 years old but given the design, we advise not to use them for kids younger than 13 years old.
Which lens type is the default? Meaning which lens would fit most weather conditions?
Are these ski goggles helmet compatible?
Yes they fit perfectly most types of helmets. The extra long elastic strap ensures great helmet compatibility.
Are these mirror reflected? Can someone see their reflection if they looked at me?
Hi, yes they can absolutely see their reflection if they look at you.
