It'll be interesting to see them in person to see how they look and feel. I think having another lens variation with more of a Mumbo trailing lens edges would look cool.

There are actually 3 different versions. The nose/beak looking thing is only on the Athlete version as I believe it had to be 3d mapped to each individuals face.

Athlete version is what Mahomes was wearing with the beak looking noes section.
What Oak posted is the retail (aka normal people can buy) version. Yes there is a 3rd version, but I wont/cant say more.

Can you say if this is going to be an athlete exclusive or possible retail model?

Hard to say. These were all supposed to be Olympic related and with the Olympics pushed back to 2021 its hard to say what will happen. Its my understanding that putting one on Mahomes was a last minute decision. To be honest im willing to bet at some point Dann gets ask to delete this thread or at least the images.

I just saw a post on instgram about these ( outdoorevasion ) with the wording. "Something new coming" Any updated word on the release of these ?

Also, anyone know why it's called the Kato ? Other than it's just a cool name ?

The designer is a comic fan and with the popularity of Marvel movies in the last decade drew inspiration from Bruce Lee's portray of the Kato character from the Green Hornet.

Thanks for the connection. I would have never known.

Patient_Cero. DERP !! I was half way there but I should have gone the extra step to look up what Kato looked like in the show. If I had just taken a moment to look it would have made immediate sense. That's pretty cool. Be interesting to see them when they come out.

This is a release that I’m looking forward to, especially the Kato X, and I’ll most likely buy a pair if I like how they fit. And I do hope that they make the athlete into a regular production release, because that “beak” is pretty damned cool.

On a side note, I wish they incorporated more usage of the snow black lens, because I think that would make this build so much cooler. I love that ~6% VLT on the road, in my clifden. But I digress.

Loved watching Kato aka Bruce lee

Could be tempted by the black if it is iridium but fear it will be a grey
