Dragon puts their best foot (or board) forward with their Rogue line of goggles. One of the anchors for the line is Gigi Ruf, an all-mountain – all-world – all-Austrian rider. Gigi showed his form in 2009 and is nominated for Men's Rider of the Year award for the annual SNOWboarding Riders' Poll Awards.
The Dragon Rogue Gigi Ruf Signature Series goggles have features that are expected for higher-end eyewear.
The Rogues fit comfortable due to the triple layer foam and fleece lining. The goggles allow for interchangeable lenses. Dragon offers about a dozen choices for replacement lens to fit a variety of light conditions.
The Rogue Gigi Ruf Signature Series features Dragon's new Super Anti-Fog Technology. Dragon's R&D and technology from NASA were integrated into the goggle lens for the Mace, Rogue, DX, and DXS lines. Dragon touts this exclusive technology as preventing lens fogging up to twice as long as similar technology on the market.
The Super Anti-Fog Technology was as advertised – super. The goggles did not fog with a full day on the slopes. Even after enjoying a spirited beverage in the lodge, the Rogue's were snapped into place and no fogging occurred with the extreme change in temperature from the comfy inside to the frozen outside world.
The Rogue Gigi Ruf Signature Series goggles are as high performing as the rider that puts his name on them. The next step for Dragon is to make a lens that is photochromatic as well as polarized. Dragon offers the several different models in their Rogues line.
The Gigi Ruf models showoff a brilliant black and yellow color scheme. The whole Rogue line sports the unique and creative graphics that Dragon is known for. The Dragon Gigi Ruf Signature Series goggles retail at an MSRP of $140.
