What do the “sliding masters” choose from the new gear that will be released this winter?If you listen to the voices of professional riders who use gear more than anyone else, you can imagine the feeling of use more concretely.So, I asked 14 riders why they chose their favorite gear.The third is Yoko Nakamura.

"I use 4D MAG and SQUAD MAG, but in the backcountry there are many 4D. When I re-tighten the buckle of the backpack before dropping, I can see the bottom without removing the goggles one by one, so it is in good condition. If you glance at the curved lens, it's distorted, but when you're slipping, you don't just keep looking at it. If you're worried about that distortion, you might be wearing goggles too much. I think that the photochromic lens is good when sliding on the main slope, but the visibility is a little shallow ... I want to see the terrain more deeply and clearly, so when it comes to shooting I adjust to the brightness at that time I try to replace it with the most suitable lens. That's why MAG is convenient. Also, the great thing about SMITH lenses is that the anti-fog material is mixed into the lens. It's not a coating, so it's effective even if you wipe it. It doesn't fall. So it doesn't really get cloudy. I think the advantage of riding will change depending on the visibility, so if you want to get better, start by seeing it! "
