Chasing a Dream
It’s been somewhat of a whirlwind journey so far over here at Melon. From coming up with the custom eyewear concept back in 2013, to moving out to Bali and opening two concept stores last year, we’ve been busting a gut and following our dreams to keep the brand flying high.
One key product that allowed us to visualise part of our dream was the Parker MTB Goggle. Launched in April 2016 this bike specific goggle took us from a focus on the winter months to being thrust into the crazy world of year round mountain biking.
A Matter of Time
Ever since we produced our first 3 snow goggles we knew that the a customisable bike goggle had to be tried! With so many friends rocking their own unique style on the bike and asking us to create something for them we always felt excited at the prospect of how riders would receive the goggle.
We engineered the Parker MTB with real riders in mind, offering customisation options like no other goggle, as well as key features to keep riders comfortable shredding all day long. We’re particularly stoked that we’ve been able to offer this all at such a great price and that so many people still get in touch to say how much they love their goggles!
Possibly our favourite part of the journey into the world of MTB has been how amazing the whole community has been to work with. From our team riders; Nick Pescetto, Ben Deakin, Adolf Silva and Joel Anderson, to the many great mags and websites, to all the everyday riders that we interact with via socials and in person on a daily basis.
We’re unbelievably stoked that we worked so hard to make the Parker MTB a reality and become part of this scene.
