Why we chose the Spektrum Östra: The plant-based plastic used here means it’s a product that scores well on sustainability. The look, tech, and feel of the goggles are all premium.
These days, it’s not enough for brands to just make cool gear without thinking about wider issues (i.e. the environmental impact). This is, undoubtedly, a step in the right direction for the industry but it does put manufacturers in a corner. How, for example, do you go about making a pair of sustainably-minded ski goggles? Well, look over here. It’s the Spektrum Östra Bio Premium, an eyewear product that brings ‘green’ to your field of vision (not literally).
Spektrum Östra Features
The frame of these goggles is born out of a plant-based plastic derived from castor oil. This, and the cleverly implemented injected dye colour in the frame, helps to make it an environmentally-friendly and more sustainable choice for skiers and snowboarders this winter.

As we’ve already mentioned in the introduction, it’s not really enough to just produce good kit these days. We need brands to step up and start thinking about the fact the world is, to put it bluntly, in an absolute state. Spektrum is doing good things in this respect. It’s nice to see.
Of course, the path to bad products can often be paved with good intentions. We’re happy to report though that that’s not the case here. These goggles have been designed in such a way, and are stacked with the kind of features, that means it’ll perform very well in the place where it matters most – the mountains.
