Carlsbad, Calif.—After 25 years of innovation in eyewear, SPY has weathered the storm and continues to keep off-road motorsports at their core with the launch of the new Foundation MX goggle. Developed with the help of SPY riders Jeremy McGrath, Cole Seely, and Axell Hodges, the Foundation will 100% give riders a view that is 15% wider than SPY's leading competitor's goggle. But they won't name names.
A badass addition to SPY's already stacked line of MX goggles, the Foundation wins on all levels, including style, price and performance. The cornerstone idea in the Foundation's design strategy was to create a premium goggle with the widest field of view possible, at a price that will still leave riders with cash leftover for track fees. The Foundation goggle nails it on both fronts, but also comes packed with innovative features designed to make the most of long days at the track or on the trail. In addition to its ultra-wide field of view, the Foundation features class-leading optics, including SPY's new High Definition (HD) lens and an available 45mm roll-off system.
Technical highlights of the Foundation goggle include:
• The widest peripheral view on the market
• High Definition (HD) Lexan® lens features high quality, impact resistant lens materials that are digitally mastered at exact specifications to create superior optics—eliminating distortion at all angles, increasing clarity, and providing the optimal viewing experience while reducing eye strain and fatigue.
• RISE™+ ventilation system utilizes the Venturi effect to draw air through subframe vents above the goggle and in-between your helmet, creating a vacuum that pulls hot air from behind the lens
• 45mm roll-off system available
• Triple-layer Isotron™ face foam with moisture-wicking Dri-Force™ fleece is facially contoured to provide a comfortable, dry seal that lasts so long it makes other goggles jealous
• Spoiler-style outriggers keep tear-offs lying flat while providing a tight and secure fit to the face, even when wearing a helmet
• Extra-wide 45mm silicone-ribbed strap stops goggle slipping and shifting on whoops, jumps, and rhythm sections
• Includes a free removable nose guard and 10-pack of tear-offs
• Foundation Plus comes with an installed Spectra™ lens and bonus clear lens with posts
Four versions of the Foundation will hit retail stores this month. The base Foundation goggle (MSRP $95) will include two colorways, always in style black, and the patriotic Revolution design. Both colorways will ship with SPY's High Definition (HD) clear lens installed and additional lenses can be purchased separately. The Foundation Plus (MSRP $110) will launch in classic SPY Orange with a HD Red Spectra lens, as well as a signature Jeremy McGrath black and gold design featuring an HD Gold Spectra lens.
