With the 2018 Olympics wrapping up, we took it upon ourselves to find out which Oakley snow goggles were worn by the top Olympians. If you’ve been keeping up with the Olympics, you may have noticed a recurring theme with the Oakley snow goggles. Many of the top Olympians were seen wearing snow goggles with an orange and yellow color way. This popular theme is part of Oakley’s Olympic themed collection called the Harmony Fade. Featured below, we go in depth on the Olympic Oakley snow goggles!
The Oakley Flight Deck is one of the most unique snow goggles that Oakley has to offer. The main visual feature that highlights this uniqueness is the large rimless design. This provides a distinct look in addition to a 180º peripheral view with PRIZM Lens Technology. On top of that, the Flight Deck uses a spherical dual lens which works like a dual pane window. The lens keeps cold air outside and keeps the warm air inside. This results in an anti-fogging effect that optimizes clarity on the mountain.
Lindsey Vonn (USA)
Lindsey Vonn is a U.S skier and a four-time Olympian. She is a three-time Olympic medalist and won a gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Wearing the Oakley Flight Deck goggle, Lindsey won a bronze medal in downhill skiing and finished 6th in super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

The Line Miner goggles optimizes Oakley’s superior design, fit and Prizm lens technology. Their cylindrical lens gives expansive peripheral vision to the user and the anti-fog coating provides clarity. The triple layer face foam utilizes soft, moisture-wicking fleece to increase the comfort level. The foam limits the movement of the goggles limiting irritation after a long day on the mountain. Overall, Oakley Line Miner is one of the most innovative in the market.

The Oakley Canopy goggles offer the field of view you need when hitting the slopes. The large lens design allows for an extended view of every angle on the mountain. The Oakley O-Flow Arch technology provides support around the entire nasal area allowing for better airflow and breathing when hitting the slopes.
