The Model Nine series is the most advanced Yniq goggle model to date. Equipped with Yniq’s Magnetic Dynamic Lens Technology (MDLT), allowing the wearer to adjust to changing light conditions by swapping lenses faster than ever.
“Fashion and function have always been important to me on and off of the slopes. I’m excited to be a part of Yniq’s creative and forward-thinking team in their unparalleled ski accessory,” said Vonn. “Their passion for quality, innovation, and style naturally align with my vision of what luxury high-performance eyewear should be.”
All Yniq goggles feature the patented and ISPO award-winning peripheral vision technology, providing the widest peripheral vision capability of any snow goggle currently on the market. The extra wide strap is coated on the inside with silicone to keep the goggles from slipping. The ‘Self Supporting Modular Outriggers’ are crafted from stainless steel in an intricate shape achieved through metal powder injection molding. Pins and screws are CNC turned stainless steel. The uniquely flexible and temperature stable frame is made of BASF Elastollan S85A.
Yniq has a winning combination of a world-class athlete and businesswoman at the brand’s helm, in addition to high-performance products offering a best-in-class skiers’ experience. “We are proud to have the ‘Number One’ in the sport joining our group of owners, says Yniq Founder Mikael Kenson. “In a world defined by mass production, Yniq stands for a relentless aim for perfection, functionality, and handcrafted quality and Lindsey is an outstanding champion with a dedication and passion for the sport and an impeccable style that is a complete match with ours.”
