Ever had a lens fog up on you during a powder day? It’s the worst. After all, no one wants to retreat to the lodge when all of the homies are out getting the goods. Luckily, goggle technology has improved drastically over the years, with 2018-2019 proving to be the most progressive yet. From magnetic systems that make swapping a breeze, to lenses that shift through tints at the press of a button, the following collection of goggles proves to be nothing short of the industry’s very best.
Dragon PXV PH Photochromic
With the introduction of their Panotech lens, which utilizes a unique toric lens curvature, Dragon’s PXV offers unrivaled peripheral visibility by sitting closer and wrapping further around your face. Perhaps even more impressive is the functional photochromic lense incorporated into this specific model.
Thanks to a unique frame design, this goggle accepts either both cylindrical and toric lenses, meaning you’re free to change your style without needing to buy a whole new pair. Plus, with an improved iteration of proven Magna-Tech, which now utilizes 18 magnets at nine contact points, the lens feels even more secure than in seasons past.
Smith I/O MAG
For this season, Smith has improved upon its once revolutionary lens-changing system by implementing an all-new magnetic connection design. But the true strength of this revamped I/O lies in the the lens quality. Lacking any concerns for fogging, Smith’s proprietary ChromaPop technology results in best-in-class definition and clarity.
Free of any gimmicky tech features, the Kleveland is a straightforward goggle that looks downright stylish while also possessing the high-end performance to match. Designed around a contoured, ergonomic frame, this all-new Electric model proves to be among the most comfortable goggles on the market today.
Oakley Prizm React Fall Line XL
By hiding their innovative tint-shifting technology within the actual frame of the goggle, as opposed to utilizing an eyesore of a battery pack on the strap, Oakley has eliminated the need for multiple lenses in a discreet, unassuming design. With just the simple press of a button, you can cycle between three distinct lens tints without ever removing your gloves.
