Dragon NFX2 2017-2018 Snowboard Goggles Review

UPDATE: Check out our review of the 2018/2019 Dragon NFX2 here

Not quite ‘frameless’, the Dragon NFX2 nevertheless puts the lens first – and with new Lumalens tech, that’s good news for all snowboarders who prefer the look and performance of a cylindrical design.

Key to the Dragon NFX2’s enduring popularity is its ‘Swiftlock’ lens changing system, which ranks among the fastest on the market. Just flick the small plastic lever on either side, and your lens comes out. Once you’ve popped the new one in place (and nearly all NFX2s come with a spare), reverse the process and you’re good to go.

“Signature colourways for the Dragon NFX2 include designs by Danny Davis, Jamie Lynn and Forest Bailey”

The armoured vents along the top can take a beating, and are easy to clear after a slam in deep snow. The lens itself is pretty tough too, with excellent scratch resistance and a coating that resists water and dirt.

Throw in new higher-contrast Lumalens tech, and a good goggle is now even better. Thirteen different tints mean that whether it’s bluebird or whiteout, you’ll see the day through with the best possible vision.

Signature colourways for the Dragon NFX2 include designs by Danny Davis, Jamie Lynn and Forest Bailey, with no fewer than twelve standard versions should none of those take your fancy.

Tester’s Verdict


“I’m so into these goggles. For me, I’d find it hard to wear anything else now.
I love the NF2’s retro clean lines, the fact that they work really well with my helmet, and the silicone bits on the strap that prevent it from slipping down (game changer).

“The lens-changing system is excellent. Sunny to white-out in no time? No problem!”

The lens-changing system is also excellent. Sunny to white-out in no time? No problem! Flick the two levers, swap the lens, push the levers back, ready to ride. You don’t even need to take them off your face.
I also really like that there is such a wide range of lenses to choose from too, and a choice of cool graphics or plain colours.”
