The Dragon APX (Advanced Projects X) shook up the snowboard goggle market with its ‘frameless’ design. It eventually evolved into the Dragon X1, which holds the same focus on top tech and minimalist, sleek aesthetics.
“Lumalens is a major step up from what came before; a genuinely excellent bit of tech”
Front and centre of the 2017/2018 Dragon X1 snowboard goggle is the new Lumalens technology. Like most of the major goggle brands, Dragon have been working on a ‘high-definition’ lens that improves visuals whilst reducing eye fatigue. Lumalens is a major step up from what came before; a genuinely excellent bit of tech that will improve the experience of any level of snowboarder.
There are several different varieties available (eleven, all told) to suit every colour scheme and all kinds of weather, with a spare lens thrown into the bargain to make sure you’re always covered. Small plastic plugs run right around the lens, so when it’s time to make a change you just work your way around the frame to disconnect it – and the new lens clicks into place safely and securely.
