iON by Zeal Optics was born out of the desire by the company to create lifestyle products that seamlessly incorporates innovative technology to redefine how people experience the outdoors and share their memories. 

"We've arrived at Outdoor Retailer this year with the most diverse goggle portfolio on the market that takes full advantage of technology," said Joe Prebich, director of marketing at Zeal Optics. "The addition of HD video and photo built into an incredible goggle like iON is a perfect new offering for the market. We know that iON is going to change the way you see the mountain because we blend the way you ride with the way you live."

The new iON is equipped with a 1080p True HD video camera that captures real-time video and sound. The camera also snaps 8-megapixel photos. It operates without removing your gloves by using buttons located on the side of the goggles.

"iON combines the most advanced image sensor technology designed in a very compact form that is cosmetically appealing," said John Sanchez, vice president of product development at Zeal Optics. "The sophistication and level of detail in the technical design of the internal components, combined with the external, in-trend goggle look, gives us a unique product that we are proud of."  

iON uses a high-quality camera with a sophisticated, 170-degree wide angle lens that captures images in the wide periphery.  The camera automatically adjusts for light levels and has infinity focus. It uses an in-goggle viewfinder and on-camera controls.  iON runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with a six-hour run time, depending on video and camera usage. 

"This system is very easy to use," added Sanchez, "so anyone can have fun sharing what happens every day of their lives."

iON comes with software that allows users to adjust all settings in the camera and after downloading their video and images from their goggles to their PC and Mac computers via a mini-USB connection. The goggles also have a micro-SD card that can be popped into computers or televisions. Images and video can be shared through all social media outlets, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more, or riders can become a member of Zeal's online community to share their shots.

iON's frame offers wide fields of view in a mid-to-large, rimless frame that can withstand extreme temperatures. Zeal Optics' new OPTIMUM™ lens is handcrafted for superior optical clarity. It has anti-fog, high-density, impact-resistant properties that improve performance. The polarized lens provides 100 percent protection from UVA and UVB rays that can damage eyes. Metal mirroring provides additional protection from the sun. iON will be offered in two colors: Matte Night Black and Moss Green. 

iON is the pinnacle of the new Zeal Optics Tech Series, defining itself as the leader in goggle technology. The Tech Series is also made up of an industry defining GPS collection. This GPS series features in-goggle GPS viewfinder that allows you to track your altitude, speed, GPS, temp and more, as well as integrate with your android smartphone for Bluetooth syncing and integration.

The Tech Series is just one part of the new 2013 Collection by Zeal Optics.  The Zeal Select and Summit Series goggles include 13 new, redesigned goggles that feature superior craftsmanship and quality, resulting in a diverse all-around goggle line. 

Zeal Optics' iON Goggles are priced at $399 and will be available at specialty retailers and online stores worldwide, including www.zealoptics.com.
