I use EG2's on the outside of a Smith helmet and they fit fine together. They may be large goggles, but should be fine with most helmets.

And OP, thank you for making me feel better about owning only five goggles!

Fishbowls went great on the weekend. But having such a large goggle on my head is something to get used to. When riding the gondola, i put them up over my helmet and subsequently gave them their first scratch.

First time ever that i have been able to wear the face mask over my whole face without the goggles fogging up.

How big are the EG2s compared to fishbowls? May if i find a pair with lowlight lenses on sale i might get some of them too; everybody singing such high praises and all that.

They did not fit my first helmet. It was a Red helmet that pushed the goggles down onto my nose. I picked up a Ride Duster helmet and they fit great.

I've only tried the I/O on in stores but I think it's a trade off.. The EG2 has unbeatable vision.. Removing the lenses however isn't as easy obviously . And they only come with one lense. I find it works for 80% of light conditions but still..

I have both. Overall, they are very similar but I like the Fishbowls better because they fit me better with my helmet. The fishbowls have the silicon bands on the straps which I like and the EG2s don't.

What lenses do you have for the EG2's?

Which lense do you think is best for variable riding?

I'm pretty sure the strap on my EG2's have the silicon beading also. I don't remember offhand, but I've never had them slip either way.

I have the bronze chrome lenses. I haven't tried a ton of other lenses from Electric but they've served me well through pretty much anything besides sunset and whiteout conditions
