No, they aren't as big as the EG2 lol... Nothing really is. Great field of vision though. I own the Splices.

Mind you, no goggle will be like looking around with your naked eyes. There will always be some type of obstruction. Some just less than others.

So is the EG2 is pretty much the only goggle that is that big and open right?


Thanks for the super fast responses Leo

The Smith I/O is the next best thing. Also, the I/O comes with a hard case and extra lens for night conditions. The case is very nice and the extra lens is very useful:

Smith I/O Goggles 2011

Don't get me wrong, the Splices aren't small by any means. You have to keep in mind that the EG2 is massive. Most goggles look small next to an EG2. This is the reason why it is so hard to find helmets that are compatible with them.

Oooh those are xpensive. Not much color either.


OK So with the help of everyone in this topic(shout out to Leo ) I have decided on the Electric EG2. I looked around on the internet and a few have had sucess with pro tec helmets (and ones similar to the riot). Andreas wiig has a pro tec riot signature model and a signature electric eg2 as well, so that is a good sign (though that might not mean much)

I think its between



Opinions?

I'm in love the camobis colorway for those. We sold our stock of those really quick. I don't even smoke anymore. Just looks cool.

I reevaluated and I think lime might be better (my bad)

How about the lime? I also did a compilation pic

Camobis wins for sure. Matches every single color on your jacket.

I personally like either blue goggle over the green ones because they still match your jacket and the green on green goggle/helmet combo might be overkill
