Our kit review expert Alf Alderson takes a closer look at the Dragon NFX2 Gogggles

Dragon NFX2 £150

The NFX2 is a frameless lens which optimises your field of vision. It comes with a spare lens which is easily changed with Dragon’s ‘Switchlock’ system – you flick open a simple locking mechanism, remove one lens, drop in the other in and lock it all back down.  That said, you do need to take the goggles off to do this.

The other big selling point with the NFX2 is Dragon’s exclusive ‘Lumalens’ technology, which filters out light attributed to haze and glare while letting in light that intensifies clarity and contrast to provide enhanced colour vividness, increased contrast and precise depth perception. Add to this a tough ‘armoured’ venting system, very effective anti-fog treatment, triple face foam with a hypoallergenic micro fleece lining and cool looks and you’ve got pretty much all you need in a pair of ski goggles.

FOR Easy lens changes, sharp vision

AGAINST Space age looks may not appeal to everyone
