@bderricks: actually it was the rose lense that got me. on the grand scheme of things it's a tiny % of people that get affected like i did, and i think its more of an eye/ brain not liking the prism effect. to quote one person in the snow industry "this things should come with a f+++ing health warning".... I literally couldn't see anything apart from white, ( it was a fairly low light day) I usually use a rose lense a lot anyway so was expecting the only difference to be the "prism effect".. i lost all definition of snow/ sky, couldn't see bumps at all. then i just felt bloody awful, got a splitting head ache and started throwing up. swapped to a pair of anon goggles with rose lenses and immediately could see fine and felt fine... someone riding with us commented that she wondered how i'd ever worked in the snowboard industry as she genuinely thought i couldn't ride it was that bad.. I'd imagine that this issue won't be so prevalent on bikes as the colours are stronger contrast, i.e. green brown blue rather than white on white..

@ollyforster: be interesting to see how the bike crowd get on with the prism sense, there's been a lot of people getting motion sickness using them on snow, me included, I've never ever been sea sick, tested these out and ended up stopping and throwing up, the most horrible riding experience ever.. as soon as i swapped them for a different goggle i was immediately better. talking to other shop guys it seems to be pretty common side effect.. to the point that one very good shop i know refuses to sell them.. test them before you buy them boys and girls..

Not2Bad: Free Segment
@tiagomano: i don't agree.. why should it be free just because it only features one brands riders...?? so you'd be happy to pay for the same movie if some of the riders were on different brands from trek? that makes no sense... whichever way you look at it, anthill aren't doing this for pure pleasure, it's their job, and they have to get paid for it otherwise they'll go out of business.. Some of their income comes from the brands that finance the production of the movie up front, the rest comes from selling it after it's made.. If you want to carry on seeing quality MTB movies, then sacrifice the money for a couple of beers and support the industry...

Not2Bad: Free Segment
@tiagomano: Trek will be the big finance backers, hence lots of trek riders. this is no different to the ski/ snowboard and surf industry that finances movies too, using their own athletes... it's not like anyone is "forcing" you to buy it, or even watch it for that matter...

@oli99: as far as outside the UK you are right, but Orange IS the uk distributor so as far as a UK buyer is concerned they are buying direct, which makes them blooming expensive..

2017 Orange Five and Alpine 160 - First Look
@Racer951: it wasn't a criticism more an observation, I have 2 bikes, one orange and one santa cruz, so a fan of both brands.. one a "boutique brand" top end carbon machine, the other an english hand made aluminium. whilst i love both bikes. the fact that one is hand made and one is moulded means sweet f all. There's no way I'd choose to pay £5k for an orange when I can buy a carbon SC for the same money. just no way at all...
