What goggles to fit sandbox classic helmet

So I have looked everywhere online and can't really find a solid answer.

I can get a good deal on a pair of eg2 but I heard that they are a tight fit?
If anyone has a sandbox what goggles do you use and how they fit etc etc
Helmet is a s/m sandbox classic (certified)

Well anyway any info would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

I've got a sandbox helmet. I've used Dragons Rogues and Electric EG2.5's on it. Both of them, I had to tilt the helmet back a little bit to get them to fit right. EG2's I don't think will work with the bill that comes off the helmet since the 2.5's require some tweaking of the helmet. Cool looking helmet, but not as google friendly as others.. I ended up buying a Salomon Brigade this year, but mainly because I wanted audio back in the helmet. You will have to try on the goggles with the Sandbox to see exactly what I'm talking about.

Funny thing is I am looking at a very similar set up! Care to share where this good deal is?

Snowboard Goggles, Snowboarding Goggles - Boardshop.co.uk

Although I'm guessing that's no use to you as it's in the uk. I found a guy on Instagram with a sandbox and eg2 but he said to go for the eg2.5.

So for me it's between the eg2.5 (and know that it's going to be a tight fit) or spy platoons (just a guess that they fit well judging from a video)

Sandbox Helmet Promo Video - YouTube

If you watch that video and pause at 00.30 you will see a guy with platoons on and they look like a perfect fit. And you get a bonus lens but idk. Have a look and tell me what you think. Thanks for the replys

I agree they do look like a perfect fit to me as well. And you're right the free bonus lense is a great deal. Maybe if those are even to big, the Spy Marshalls would work... Unfortuantely now that site wouldn't work for me but a few months ago it would have! Just relocated.

I have EG2.5 and although I've got a reasonably narrow face, I found the fit a little narrow me. The styling works much better with without helmet too. Love them but I'm changing for this season.

Hope you find this useful.

Here's how Spy Platoons look on a Sandbox Certified L/XL.





In a word, the Spy Platoons perfectly match the Sandbox helmet.

Really though, that brim on the Sandbox was designed for the purpose of covering any gaper gap on any and all goggles. I'm pretty sure that's its only purpose.

Waow, they look sick. I emailed sandbox and the guy said he wears eg2.5 with his so I guess it's eg2.5 vs platoons. Thanks for the replys!
