We live in a time when everything is documented and analysed. And what rider wouldn’t want their speeds and airs put down precisely and offered up for perusal following a downhill charge?

Oakley’s new design – the Airwave 1.5 – is its most forward-thinking pair of goggles yet, offering up an interface that integrates GPS and Bluetooth on a heads-up display that uses prism technology. You’re free to pull up jump analytics that show distance, height and airtime, while the mobile dashboard boasts preloaded maps, music playlist control, and buddy tracking too.
