Ski Club’s Peter Davies along with our Ski Club members and staff tested Bollé’s NEVADA goggles in the Austrian resort of Lech. Find out how the goggle performed.  

The NEVADA goggles were launched in 2018 to celebrate Bollé’s 130th year and have now become one of the leading goggles in the ski industry.  

Bollé says these goggles have “the perfect combination between style and technology” and this certainly seems to be true in terms of aesthetic. The cylindrical lens has a slightly retro aesthetic, but the high-tech feel and rimless design keep the overall look up to date. Straight out of the box the goggles felt light and modern with the minimal look which is right on trend and matching up nicely to most ski outfits and styles, from piste lover to all-mountain charger to powder hound. 

In Lech, we mostly had bright blue skies for the week, however, the weekend saw a snowstorm, which was a good test for the lenses. The Phantom lens technology allowed for good protection for my eyes in bright conditions and performed well in low light to increase visibility. The no frame design allows for a wider range of visibility too and I personally think it looks more aesthetically pleasing.

As for the fit, the goggles were comfortable all week plus the vents and double lens allowed for no fogged vision when it snowed over the weekend. The triple layer of foam maximised comfort too as I didn't have to really lift my goggles.  

The goggles come in various colours but the ones we were testing had a yellow and black colour theme. The style reminded me of Bumblebee from the Transformer films (google it and you’ll see my madness). A smart sporty look that will go with most helmets and outfits.  

Overall, I think the goggles adapted to different conditions well and I like the smart and sporty look. The price of these high-quality goggles is great too at under £100. Bolle has yet again delivered in the ski goggle department!  

What did some of the team think?  

Claire Durant

Like: They were great in the sunshine, super comfy, didn’t steam up and although I wasn’t sure about the yellow strap at first I’ve learnt to love it and really enjoyed wearing them! 
Dislike: First impressions of the colours weren’t great but I grew to like it.  

James Connor

Like: They were super comfortable on my face. It didn’t feel like I was wearing any goggles they were so light and soft.  
Dislike: In really bad visibility they only enhanced my vision slightly. For really bad visibility I’d recommend the other goggles (photochromic cat 1-3) that the rest of the group used.  

Sam Jackson

Like: Stylish, ideal for overcast days. They also matched my yellow outfit.  
Dislike: None they did the job well! 

What Bollé Say
