Dragon’s flagship Advanced Projects X and Xs snow goggles now feature Transitions® self-adjusting lenses. Transitions® lenses automatically change tints in response to changing sunlight and weather conditions, eliminating the need to swap goggles or change lenses – perfect for the fickle and constantly changing Southern Hemisphere winter. With a broad visual light transmission range, the lens automatically activates to a dark grey in bright sunlight, and lightens to a contrast-enhancing yellow in overcast weather.
Colour optimised to improve visual performance, the Dragon Transitions® lens enhances contrast and increases depth perception. The spherical injection-moulded polycarbonate lens delivers unsurpassed peripheral vision, while the integrated dual lens design is backed with a super anti-fog treatment for increased visibility. Specifically formulated for snow conditions, the Transitions® goggle lens also blocks 100% of harmful UV rays.
The Transitions® Advanced Projects X and XS snow goggles and replacement lenses are available now at all the best snow retailers across Australia and New Zealand. Click here or call 1800 032 065 (freecall Australia) or 0800 316 728 (free call New Zealand) to find out more.

Our man Owen locks in two perfect 20-point heats in a historic performance at Tavarua. His brilliant performance at the Fiji Pro could not have been scripted any better. In perfect eight- to ten-foot surf at the infamous Cloudbreak, Wright cruised to his first world tour victory since 2011. “It’s a dream come true,” sighed a bewildered Wright from the channel after the spray has settled.
Posting two perfect 10-point rides in Round 5 of the contest, Wright found himself in very distinguished company as one of only five surfers to have ever logged a perfect heat. But he wasn’t done. Fighting his way to the final, the powerful goofy-footer was clearly on a roll. Already in firm control of the final, in the dying minutes he locked into two more perfect 10-point rides. It’s the first time in the history of professional surfing that someone has tallied two perfect heat scores in one contest.
Wright now sits ranked third on the WSL ratings, right in front of fellow Dragon team member Mick Fanning. Both are within striking distance of the 2015 WSL World Title and are looking to make a strong push as the season hits the halfway point.
Part of the Dragon family since his early days, Wright has his own signature sunglass colourways in The Jam and Remix sunglasses, is a key inspiration in the development of H2O Floatable Collection, and could yesterday be seen on the podium in the Marquis sunglass – all of which are available from the best surf and sunglass retailer, or via our online store here.
