SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (August 1, 2016) Teaming up with action-sport media pioneers Teton Gravity Research (TGR), Dragon has created two special edition goggles: the groundbreaking NFX2 & the X2s, both featuring SwiftLock Lens Technology. For over 20 years Wyoming-based TGR has been creating original snow and action sports content of the highest standard—producing 40 films and television series featuring the world’s top athletes, as well as producing film tours, merchandise, and an industry leading website that supports it all. The limited edition TGR X Dragon goggles bring together the leaders in mountain culture content and Dragon’s most advanced goggles.
Inspired by the jagged peaks of Wyoming’s iconic Teton Range, the TGR x Dragon NFX2 Goggle features a black and white panoramic photo of the mountains and a white Teton Gravity Research logo. The TGR x Dragon X2s version features a full-color sunset panoramic of the peaks, with similar logo detail.
“TGR is an iconic media brand that we respect and admire,” explains Dragon’s Global Product Director, Mike Tobia. “We all agreed that a collaboration in the NFX2 & the X2s goggles would be a natural fit.”
"We are excited to partner with Dragon on this goggle collaboration,” says TGR Co-founder Todd Jones, “Our brands reach complimentary active lifestyle audiences year-round, representing multiple sport disciplines and outdoor passions.”
The 2015 ISPO Award Winning NFX2 & the mid-size, spherical lens X2s, both feature distinctive designs & both offer Swiftlock Lens Technology—a pair of integrated levers in the goggle frame that allow for instant on-and-off lens deployment. SwiftLock has proven to deliver the fastest, most secure lens change system ever, allowing skiers and snowboarders to adapt instantly in all conditions. And packed with our full range of other premium goggle technologies, the NFX2 & X2s offer truly industry-leading performance
