ANON M2 GOGGLES REVIEW

Price: £190
Colour: Smoke
Lens: Green Solex 

Anon, Burton’s goggle brand, have been around for years making solid goggles, but they’ve made a serious splash recently with the launch of their ‘magna-tech’ frames. These use a series of magnets to attach the lens to the frame, removing the need for fiddly pop-in and out systems and making changing your lens much, much quicker and easier. The first frame to feature the new technology was the M1, which is being followed for the 2013-14 season by this, the M2.

It’s a large goggle with a frameless design, offering an excellent all-round field of vision. This has 8 magnets as opposed to the M1’s six, which attach then lens with a combined force of 22 lbs (9kg). This means that the lens is easy enough to remove but is attached strongly enough so it won’t pop off if you stack it. It really works too, switching lenses between the green solex one showed here and the black, bright light one that comes as a spare with this colourway was easier than any other goggle we’ve ever tried.

ADIDAS ID2 GOGGLE REVIEW

Price: £140
Colour: Shiny black
Lens: Grey

Although they’ve only started making snowboard boots recently, Adidas have been making snowboard goggles for years. They’ve had a long history of supporting the UK scene, having sponsored the likes of Johno Verity, Adam Gendle and Tim Warwood back in the day. Their current team includes Angus Leith and Dom Harington. The ID2 is one of their staple goggles, a classic model that is updated with new colour combos each season.

It’s quite a small, simple frame, so ideal if you’re not after the oversized gangster look. Our test version had a grey lens, which is designed for bright days, although it’s not quite as reflective as say an iridium lens. Our testers thought these were comfy and classy and for a great all-round choice, especially for the price.
