The Scott React google features the brand’s first fully integrated magnetic lens change and lock system. The google comes with two cylindrical lenses; an Enhancer lens for clear skies and an Illuminator lens when the sun is hiding, and both are equipped with Scott’s Amplifier Lens Technology, which boosts color and contrast.
The Hangfire is the first spherical goggle to join Zeal’s Observation Deck Technology collection which utilizes downward-tilted lenses to better reveal the slope below you. Designed for those who tend to think six steps ahead, the Hangfire features a rimless frame design, medium fit, no-slip strap and is available in a number of styles.
Bollé Mammoth Heritage
This year, Bollé celebrates the inaugural era of freeskiing’s revolution with a sleek, retro colorway on its classic Mammoth goggle. It features a large frame and rubber outriggers for a snug fit, and comes with color/contrast-boosting Volt or photochromic Phantom lenses, so you can choose your preferred optics.
The M4S offers a wide field of view, scaled to fit smaller faces, with the versatility to choose between toric or cylindrical lenses—both options are available. Each goggle also comes standard with a face mask that magnetically connects to the goggle frame. New this season is a polarized lens option for reduced glare.
Dragon RVX MAG OTG
The RVX MAG OTG, trusted by pros like Chris Benchetler. With the addition of magnets to Dragon’s Swiftlock 2.0 lens-changing system, the lenses now lock in-place in two ways. It’s designed to fit over prescription eyeglasses and offered in a variety lens and strap combinations to match your style.
A clean design and quick-change lenses make the Ella an easy go-to for everyday skiing. The frameless design reduces fogging, and Expansive View Technology combines with toric-shaped, contrast-boosting VIVID lenses, made by ZEISS, to ensure your vision is clear while moving through haze and flat light.
Salomon Radium Prime
The Radium Prime, Salomon’s top-shelf goggle option this season, is equipped with all the bells and whistles. Featuring contrast- and color-enhancing, oversized SIGMA lenses, a magnetic interchangeable lens system and a bonus low-light lens, these gogs are a premium one-stop-shop for skiers who want to emulate their heroes.
POC Nexal Clarity
Taking cues from the ski racing world, the all-new Nexal Clarity boasts the addition of zygomatic bone covers underneath the lens to protect your face from wind chill and your cheek bones from a bad tumble. The cylindrical lenses also sit an even distance from the face, minimizing optical distortion and ensuring perfect eyesight.
Smith 4D Mag S
The 4D MAG S offers all the qualities of the popular 4D MAG in a design for smaller faces, with Birdseye Vision beveled lenses for Smith’s widest field of view. Two Chromapop lenses, which intensify the contrast of the snow, come standard and the easy-to-use swap system lets you change up your tint on the fly.
Sweet Protection Durden RIG R
The Durden features a slight design change that makes a massive difference: By mounting the goggle strap to the outside of the frame, Sweet’s engineers upgraded the fit and compatibility of the goggle when used with a helmet. And its extra-thick, injected lenses protect your eyes in a crash.
