Most goggles that go with the ‘frameless’ approach tend to be on the large side, which for some riders gives the sensation of being in a goldfish bowl. If you’d prefer something subtler – or just have a smaller-than-average bonce – then Dragon have you covered.
The Dragon X2s is the scaled-down version of the popular X2, and shares all of its winning features. There’s the ‘armoured venting’ that’s made of tough-yet-lightweight plastic, and the super-comfy foam with a hypoallergenic coating that keeps your face happy all day.
Changing lenses is just a matter of flicking the small levers on either side of the frame – it’s a simple, but highly effective, system that might be the quickest around (or close to it). Despite the downsizing, there’s still as much peripheral vision as you could ever need on the hill, and everything’s held in place thanks to the silicone layer on the inside of the strap.
As always, there’s a wealth of colourways to choose from, including a nifty collab with the folk at Teton Gravity Research.
