PORTLAND, Ore. (Jan. 23, 2017) – Abom, Inc., manufacturer of the world’s first anti-fogging heated goggles, announces the newest addition to its product line, the ABOM HEET. The HEET features the second generation of ABOM’s award-winning heated goggle technology, improving upon the brand’s patented ABOM™ technology with a new environmental sensor that automatically heats the lens to eliminate fog.
Additionally, a lower-profile, lightweight design offers a versatile fit for both men and women as well as compatibility with snowmobile helmets. The ABOM HEET also features a reduced-weight elastopolymer frame and a polycarbonate inner lens with anti-scratch coating. Consumers can choose from nine stylish and functional lenses.
“We’re excited to introduce the ABOM HEET to the world,” said Jack Cornelius, Abom CEO. “We are confident that consumers will appreciate the sleek new look and feel.”
Abom’s first-generation goggles – the ABOM ONE – were selected as 2016/2017 ISPO category award-winner, as well as a gold medal winner in the 2016 Edison Awards. At the 2017 Winter Outdoor Retailer show, the ABOM HEET was chosen for Gear Institute’s “Best New Gear Award” and Digital Trend’s “Best of Show” Award. The brand was also recently named Portland Business Journal’s “Small Business Innovation” award winner.
