The 4:3 was engineered especially for younger skiers, so that they have the right gear to excel. Just like the adult models, the spherical DUAL BIONOMIC lenses are mirrored and feature a high-quality, water-repelling HYDROPHOBIC coating. The wide goggle strap with anti-slip silicone that keeps them in place on the helmet is another key feature not offered on many junior goggles.

DUAL BIONOMIC SPHERICAL LENSE:
MARKER DUAL BIONOMIC lenses are designed in a double-lens construction with an integrated thermal blocker. All lenses are oriented toward the curvature of the human eye to ensure that objects seen through the goggles look the way they really are. Unlike traditional, non-progressively tapered standard lenses, our lenses feature Bionomic Curve Lens Technology (quality class 1, ANSI Z87.1) that deliver undistorted light beams directly to the eye, which ensures 100% correct vision that doesn’t strain the eye. Exterior lens (1) Depending on the goggles model, various materials are used to produce the exterior lens: all standard lenses are produced from robust polycarbonate and enhanced with an extremely scratch-resistant coating. They offer 100% UV A/B/C protection up to UV 400 nm. The polarized lenses on the high-end models are produced from TAC (Tri Acetate Cellulose). This makes them ever lighter, clearer and more scratch resistant. TAC lenses offer world-class visibility as well as 100% UV A/B/C protection up to UV 400 nm. Inner lens (2) The inner lens is made of acetyl cellulose and is compression molded against the spherical outer lens as part of a heating process. This ensures that the shapes are congruent for 100% undistorted vision. The anti-fog and anti-reflex coatings are ‘embedded’ in the lens to prevent them from rubbing off over the long term. Thermal blocker (3) The interior lens also functions as a thermal blocker, creating an air barrier between the external and interior lenses. This thermal blocker compensates for differences in the temperatures, with the interior of the goggles constantly warm and dry – and fog-free.
MARKAIR VENT SYSTEM:
All goggle frames are outfitted with the progressive MarkAIR VENT SYSTEM. Design and air flow are engineered simultaneously so that there is perfect lens ventilation and the unobstructed flow of air is guaranteed along the helmet and its MarkAIR CHANNEL SYSTEM. This keeps the inside of the lenses dry and fog-free. The breathable foam behind the inlets and outlets reliably resist the penetration of snow and moisture.
XDRY TRIPLE LAYER FACE FOAM:
Extremely comfortable and extra soft! The three-layer Xdry construction helps produce an optimal fit and outstanding performance. The soft external fleece layer that touches the skin absorbs moistures and transports it away from the skin.
SUPERFIT FRAME DESIGN:
MARKER goggles stand out for their perfectly fitting form and top functionality. The shape of the goggles frames and the materials used in the goggles play a decisive role in this. We manufacture all SUPERFIT FRAMES from high-elastic ELASTOGRAN (Made in Germany), which means the goggles automatically hug the contour of the wearer’s face. ELASTROGRAN retains its full flexibility regardless of how cold it is outside. The MARKER V-SPLIT NOSE also helps ensure that these goggles fit like no other, as they adapt to the shape of the nose automatically, and seal without pinching or pressing.
SILICON ANTI-SLIP COATED GOGGLE STRAPS:
The high-quality, top-durability goggle straps distribute the pressure around the head for the perfect hold without irritating pressure points. Thanks to the heat applied silicon coating on the interior of the goggle straps, they sit rock-solid on any helmet for slip-free performance.
MARKER HELMET/GOGGLE INTEGRATION:
Helmet and goggles must fuse together perfectly to work as one optimally functioning unit. To achieve this, MARKER products are 100% harmonized with one another. All helmets and goggles are designed to precisely tune into the shape of the other item and harmonize with its lines. This perfect adaptation is a requirement for optimal aerodynamic performance by helmet and goggles. The MarkAIR Channel ventilation system on the helmet, combined with the MarkAIR VENT SYSTEM on the goggles, ensures top performance and air flow. The ingenious system for air intake and outlet vents, combined with a network of channels in the helmet, reduces significantly goggle fogging and allows the wearer to customize the air circulation. The result: the temperature within the helmet is appropriate for both the exterior temperature and skier exertion levels.
The high-quality HYDROPHOBIC COATING is used instead of the NMT OPTICS coating for the 4:3 models for children and youths. Beyond the surface protection it also has water-resistant properties that cause moisture to drain off and quickly evaporate.
