At Summit Worldwide, we've been developing snowsports eyewear and specifically ski goggles since 2011 with our focus being on providing high quality products at an affordable price to our most valued team member - YOU!

Over the last 7+ years in our quest to create the perfect pair of snow goggles our production costs have nearly quadrupled. More technical designs, hugely improved functionality and dramatically upgraded components means higher production costs. That is exactly why we are turning to you Kickstarter...with your help, our latest project can become a reality!

It would be easy to say it's taken 18 months to create Talisman, but in reality it's taken 7 years. By learning something new from each design, we've brought it all together into one special product, our magnetic masterpiece - Talisman.

Back us now by choosing from one of the options on the right hand side and if we hit our target of £15,000, we'll deliver your order to you by Christmas - Guaranteed!

The new silicone logo is lightweight and waterproof. This keeps it looking clean and fresh, whether worn on top or underneath the helmet.

We appreciate that one size doesn't necessarily fit all, so we also created Talisman 's'. That's right, Talisman will be available in 2 sizes!

Risks and challenges

Product: We've thought about every detail and eliminated risk as much as possible with this product and process. We've learnt from experience exactly which materials work in the colder climates and which do not. Cheaper plastics from previous models have been replaced with robust nylon components, which are stronger and more resilient in colder temperatures.

Silicone replaces our previous embroidered logos. The reason being is that silicone prevents wear and fade and still remains light when wet, not to mention you can wipe it clean if necessary.

Fabrication: There are no fewer than five factories/suppliers that contribute to the creation of this goggle and manufacturing in high volumes comes with it's challenges. We already have the relationships in place and have been using our suppliers since 2011. They appreciate our attention to detail and our desire to develop and grow as a brand and it's that partnership and mutual respect that allows us to have 100% faith in them delivering the goods.

Product Build & Shipping: Believe it or not, this product arrives to us in separate components and will be built in the UK (Kent to be precise!)

All hands are on deck to get your orders packaged and dispatched as soon as possible, we even rope in our lucky friends and family!

We use DPD's exceptional next day delivery service as standard and we are currently agreeing shipping rates with DHL for the rest of the world.

Supply & Demand: We've taken the necessary measures to take care of large order quantities, yet fabrication of this product takes time and it needs to be precise. Should orders roll into 4 figures, we'll have to explore the potential of a second production run...play safe, get in early.
We'll update you on this throughout the process.
