If you want Dragon’s famed ‘Swiftlock’ system on a frameless model with a spherical lens, then the Dragon X2 snowboard goggles is your answer. Dragon was the brand first to crack the lens-dominant design, and continues to lead the pack.
The large lens of the Dragon X2 is held in place by small levers on either side of the frame. Flick ‘em down and the lens is released, then simply return them to their previous position once the new lens is in place. It’s quick, easy, and reliable – one of the best systems around.
“Quick, easy, and reliable – Swiftlock is one of the best systems around”
The impact-proof venting keeps the lens fog-free even after your hundredth spill, and the Lumalens tech delivers an incredibly crisp, high-contrast perspective on the mountain. Thanks to a water-, dust- and scratch-repellant coating, you can expect a clear picture all day long.
As ever, the range of available frame and lens styles is almost overwhelming. A Bryan Igunchi collab is among the strap options, and the tints range from night-riding clear to five different bluebird-day options. There’s still no auto-adjusting ‘photochromic’ lenses for the Dragon X2 goggles, but then why would you want to pay more for something that renders that great Swiftlock system obsolete?
For smaller faces there’s the Dragon X2s, with all the same great tech but in a more petite package.
