Default EG2.5 vs EG2 Width

Just received a pair of EG2.5s and they are too narrow from ear to ear. Without stretching the band around my helmet the foam is almost touching the sides of my eyes (I have a huge head apparently).

Are the EG2s wider? I know they're definitely taller but I can't find any measurements anywhere to figure out if they're wide enough to fit my massive dome.

I think the eg2 is wider also. My girlfriend has been looking for new goggles and she was looking at those today. She said the eg2.5 is a smaller version of the eg2.

Eg 2.5 is narrower and generally smaller then the eg 2s. I ride with eg2s and they fit fine whereas the 2.5 definitely pinches my eyes and fits a lot narrower. The 2.5 almost feels as though it's a more women's specific eg 2 or generally made for smaller faces

Cool thanks for the info. Deciding between grabbing a pair of EG2s or just a basic pair of EGB2s for that low price...

get the eg2s. i have a big head (and a big nose) and they don't even come close to touching the outsides of my eyes. they fit great on big heads. i've never put on the eg2.5s so i can't compare them but i can say that the oakley splices touch the outsides of my eyes. i don't think you should have any problem with the eg2s. i've tried on numerous brands and models and i think the eg2s have the most room out of many of the goggles i've tried on.

Egb2s are plenty big too. They just don't have the spherical lens and come at a cheaper price. I've heard people say that spherical lenses divert pressure to the frame causing it feel tight whereas the flat lenses just sit in the frame. Never actually noticed it myself but something to consider.

Makes sense because a cylindrical lens can usually bend pretty freely from ear to ear whereas a spherical is lens can't really bend at all.
