About Hubo International Inc

Nordik was created from an idea to combine fashion and function.  Nordik achieves this by providing stylish goggles with practical purpose, perfect for any winter sport enthusiast! Our goggles are made with comfort in mind, leading to goggles that can support continuous wear and displaying features that are built for athletes. Following this philosophy, Nordik’s brand of goggles all have interchangeable magnetic lenses that are easy to change out. Nordik also provides photochromic lenses that could adapt to the ever-changing conditions on the mountain, avoiding fogging lenses, as well as, looking sharp while having the versatility to coordinate with whatever the athlete was wearing. 

Tested in extremely cold temperatures and high-altitude areas, the simple anti-fog lens can no longer meet the needs of athletes. Athletes are looking for a highly functional piece of eyewear that can make them feel fashionable and confident on the snow, and with Nordik’s vision and passion for quality and technology this is now in reach. This passion is what gave birth to the Nordik Eyewear brand, intended to design, and develop eyewear with fashion and function to meet the needs of the most passionate athlete. With Nordik Eyewear you can now always find a piece of eyewear that will help you get to your athletic peak!
