Goggle Features:

When choosing a pair of snowboard goggles there are many features to consider before making a purchase. The basic determining factors for both style and features in snowboard goggles are slope conditions and activity level. Look for models that offer full UV protection, and that will be compatible with your helmet.

Single and Double Lenses

  • While single lenses are generally less expensive, double lenses don't fog as fast

Venting and Anti-fog

  • Because you will undoubtedly snowboard in a variety of conditions, venting and anti-fog features are major considerations
  • Goggles remain fog-free by virtue of double-lens construction, as well as venting and chemical lens treatments
  • Venting allows air circulation over the inside surface of the snowboard goggle, which reduces fogging and provides fresh air for your eyes
  • Vents are usually small holes at the top of the lens or slots in the sides of the frame
  • Chemical treatments leave a water-repellent residue that helps reduce fogging on the inside and outside of the lens

Lens Options

Lenses come in a variety of colors and tints that will aid vision in specific light conditions.

  • Gold filters out blue light and is suitable for a wide range of light conditions
  • Black Iridium has a mirrored coating that helps reduce glare, and won't distort colors. Best for bright, sunny days.
  • Bronze offers good protection for bright, clear days
  • Silver/green is a good general-purpose lens because it enhances contrast in diffused light
  • Rose is best suited for low-light conditions
  • Purple is good in low-light conditions, such as overcast and snowy days, because it brings out shadows and contours in flat light
  • Clear is best suited for skiing or riding at night or on cloudy days
