Default Dragon APX/APXS

Hey guys! Just purchased a pair of Dragon APXS's and didn't know if anyone here has a pair. Just looking to see what those that have/had them think of them. I finally had enough of my Quik Hubbles fogging up today and opted to go with something else. I often contributed the fogging to me wearing a balaclava and having it over my nose. But today they seemed to fog whether I was wearing it up or not. And it has happened everyday this season so far. So if anybody is interested in some Quiksilver Hubbles, let me know lol. I have 2 pair and will be looking to sell them after I get my Dragons.

Had the APX for a couple of seasons now and love them. Nice wide FOV, they have holes in the lens so they dont fog up, dont pinch my nose and they look awesome to.

They have trouble with some helmets (sandbox) but work well with my ride ninja. Hoping for some new funkier lenses next season.

Really wanted this limited edition ones from last season but apparently it was an Asia only colourway..doh

I run with the APX which I believe is the bigger sized version... I dig'um... they only fog up when I lift my goggles up and wear them on my head for lunch... other than that no issues with fog. The replacement lenses hurt at $80 a lens though

Nice. I went with the APXS's. Smaller frame and work well with most helmets. I got the white ones with blue steel ionized lenses. I'm already tempted to get the red ionized lenses at some point. I loved the Hubbles, but have had issues more this season with them fogging and some last season. I left Oakley and thought I found something in the Hubbles but I've been disappointed since. Looking forward to getting these. As long as I don't have issues while wearing a mask or balaclava, I'll be straight.

I was just looking at Dragon's site and saw the NFX... they seem to be less spherical than the APX & more flat on the lens correct?

Yup. A flat version of apx. No real benefit. You loose a bit of the optically correct spherical lens but gain a little peripheral

I just got myself and APX and they're great!
I found them on WhiskeyMilitia for $62 and they're the best googles I've had
The only time they've fogged up for me is when I put them on my head for lunch and it took some time after getting on the hill for all the fog to dissapear but other then that, these are great goggles!
