VISIT ON DESKTOP TO VIEW THE FULL VERSION OF THE PROJECT
During a -37°C snowmobile trip I questioned myself "how to improve motosport goggles to avoid frostbites?" This was a 2 week long workshop course to learn the handheld tools.

Scott's system for better fit to the helmet
Scott has designed a frame so the goggles will fit better to your face, this can make a huge difference if the weather is windy and cold.The smallest gap can make the worst frostbite but thanks to this form, gaps are minimized.
The nose protection
The nose bridge protects your nose from injuries but also from the wind. Without nose protection, there is a huge gap between the helmet and the goggles.
The forehead protection
I always find it hard to find goggles that fit perfectly with the helmet when no standard measurements exist. These goggles have a forehead protection to remove the gap between the helmet and the goggles to minimize the risk of frostbite.
