X Games Day 2?

So.... sometimes when you are having a wonderful time in life at this wonderful event called X Games, in this wonderful place called Tignes.... you have so much fun you loose your phone.

When you loose your phone you also loose your wonderful pics that were in them..... and while we gather the pics of our amazing team dinner and cheese overload...

We have this great pic of Luke, who coincidentally also lost this phone, more to come!
Oh and Luke isn't a filmer, but he was sick and missed his event so decided to film (that was nice of him).

Behind the Lens: Italian Factory

Ever wondered how your sunnies are made? At Dragon, our higher-end models are made in Italy. Last week our PLM, Hillary, took a trip out to one of our factories. It was a whirlwind trip and here are some highlights....

Hill and one of our factory experts modeling next season's hottest new lab coats.

Wood chips..who would have known? This is a process called "tumbling" the factory does to each of the frames after they pop out of the mold. 

Painting made easy...

And this is Hill and one of the factory workers looking like weirdos in the
white lab coats. Super unflattering but really comfortable. Could be the
next generation of the Snuggy?
