Electric vs Von Zipper Goggles with Combyn
 
I'm looking at getting a new pair of goggles. Trying to decide between Electric EG2 or EG2.5 and Von Zipper fishbowls. I wear a Giro Combyn helmet and am curious as to which ones would fit with the helmet well with no gaps. I can't find a store near me that has them to try on so I'll have to order them online. Any recommendations or experiences? Thanks!

One vote for EG2. Not sure if it's compatible with that helmet but they're great goggles.

I have both the EG2 and the Fishbowl. I like the Fishbowl better because it's more comfortable. EG2 wraps around more and hugs your face little more. Fishbowl fits my Bern Watts helmet very well.

Should also mention that I'm wearing a size medium Giro Combyn helmet, (if that gives you an idea about the size of my head) goggles will go over the helmet.

Another vote for EG2. You can find pretty good deals on them on Steep and Cheap, and The Clymb.

You need to try them on for fit. If they dont fit your face/helmet, no matter how good they are... they will not work.

Yup know that, but unfortunately no place is close by to try them on. Was going to order some online and then ship them back if they don't fit, but I want to avoid returning if I can due to shipping and handling fees.

Are the EG2's really as huge as people say they are? My head isn't ginormous, probably an average size face. I'm leaning more towards the 2.5's.

Thanks again for the help so far!

EG2 are big. So are fishbowls, like really big.

EG2 are a liiittle bit less wide, but about equally high as fishbowls, so essentially they look equally big. IOX are about the same size, but look slightly smaller overall than fishbowls...

I tried a bunch of lenses and EG2 and Dragon were slightly too narrow for me... Fishbowl fit perfect and Smith IOX fit really good, but i find the fishbowls conform to my face better because the frame is soft. Oakley canopy fit me well, but the frame was too wide and not tall enough, so I didnt like it.

For your reference i wear a sz L Bern Watts helmet and use both IOX and Fishbowls. But each face, nose, cheeks are different.... :dunno:

I own both, and needless to say, the EG2's are collecting dust on my desk.
