Challenger Goggles

$93.99
Additional Challenger Lens
Clean, vibrant vision in flat light, bluebird conditions, and everything in between. Built for the expert skier.
Updated for 2019/2020 with new lens options and silicon grip straps. A lethal fusion of unflinching durability and supreme comfort, the Challenger is engineered to duck a few ropes and charge through the whiteout. With cutting edge anti-fog and anti-scratch mirrored coatings, 100% UV protection, multiple lens options, and a double lens system, the Challenger goggle has you covered no matter what the mountain throws at you.

"When it comes to getting the most performance for your money, the Glade Challenger is one of the best goggles we’ve used. The overall quality and optics are in line with much more expensive goggles." 

As a general rule of thumb, bright or bluebird conditions call for lower Visible Light Transmission (VLT) and low light or overcast conditions call for higher VLT:

A note from our founder:

When we launched our Challenger goggle it quickly became the go-to staple Glade employees swear by. Premium quality, comfortable, lightweight, and gaper-gap free, this goggle has everything you need for a full day on the hill.

The Challenger Goggle is a celebration of those who ski and ride for the love of the camaraderie, adventure, and challenge of the sport. Glade was born of this spirit, and these goggles are a direct reflection of this attitude. Welcome to the club.

Happy skiing,

Founder, Glade

    Amazing Customer Service

    I bought the Glade Challenger goggles with the low light lens and the protective case. Glade accidentally sent me the wrong color lens, and I emailed them back at 7:30pm the day before Thanksgiving. Within 8 minutes, i repeat, 8 MINUTES, the founder Curt had emailed me back taking full responsibility for the mistake. He immediately sent me the right goggles and even let me keep the incorrect pair. I was a little nervous trying a smaller company at first, but it is clear that this small company is able to provide unparalleled customer service.

    On top of the great service, the goggles are amazing. The lenses feel extremely durable and they are very easy to change. The low light lenses allowed me to see clearly the other day while there were 60+ mph blizzard conditions. I am now a Glade customer for life and recommend these goggles to anyone.

    Good fit, cut out for eyeglasses, good price, excellent clarity of lenses. Lens change more difficult than some, but solid connection. Will know more when ski areas open! Oh, and shipping was quick.

    So sick!

    The goggles came in so quickly and they look amazing. Bought another pair for myself so my bf and I can switch lenses. So excited to use them next season!

    Great goggles, matched with fantastic service

    Purchased two pair of Challenger with burnt orange lenses, they are excellent and in line with all the positive reviews on line. Interactions with Glade customer service (Curt) was exceptional, prompt and I will be a customer for life...simply no reason to spend 50% more for "brand name" goggles.

    Why pay more

    What Glades does brilliantly - other than making really, really good googles - is making the big established brands look ridiculously overpriced.
