- Lens: Spherical
- System: Quick Change
- Price: £165 / €185
While not fully frameless, the Spy Legacy snowboard goggles have only a sliver of border around the spherical lens. The resulting lighter weight is just the ticket for a bigger model, which is exactly what we’ve got here.
There’s enough space under these for a pair of glasses (and even notches in the foam for the arms to pass through), but the Spy Legacy goggles are just as well suited to those with perfect 20/20 vision.
“It’s essentially a push-button system to release the lens, and is a great example of simple also being effective”
Either way you get all the benefits of a large lens’ increased peripheral vision – and since it’s Spy’s ‘Happy’ lens tech, which improves contrast and reduces eye fatigue, you get amazing visuals all round.
Changing the lens is easy with the ‘Lock Steady’ system. It’s essentially a push-button system to release the lens, and is a great example of simple also being effective. You could even do it wearing gloves, and once the new lens is in place it looks seamlessly integrated.
There’s the usual anti-fog and anti-scratch considerations, with plenty of venting to keep the toughened lens clear all day long. Despite the size the Spy Legacy will still work well with helmets, and will stay in place thanks to the silicon on the inside of the strap.
Too big? No worries; just check out the Spy Bravo goggles, which pack much of the same tech into a medium-sized frame.
