Combining the clean aesthetics of a cylindrical lens with the expansive peripheral vision of a spherical design, Dragon's all-new PXV proves to be an innovator in goggle technology. With the introduction of their Panotech lens, which utilizes a unique toric lens curvature, the PXV offers unrivaled peripheral visibility by sitting closer and wrapping further around your face. While our testers were impressed by the uninhibited field of vision without the usual fishbowl-like design, they were even more impressed by the photochromic lenses incorporated into this specific model. Where lenses with this tech have failed to effectively adjust with changing light conditions, Dragon's Photochromic technology was surprisingly proficient.

Tested + Approved 2018 presented by evo.com
Since its inception four years ago, Tested + Approved has swiftly and proudly established itself as snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. With an endless sea of gear to choose from—bindings and boots, helmets and goggles, gloves, layers, and everything in between—it's not getting any easier to know where to spend your money when everything seems to be touted as the next great innovation in performance and technology. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word.
We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique it. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. What remains is a collection of the industry’s most proven products; all of it Tested + Approved.
