Largest goggles for 2013/14

Just wondering if any companies have surpassed the size (peripheral / spherical) of the APX, Fishbowl, EG2. Frameless now seems to be a trend. Has anyone tried Zeal Level's or Salomon X-Max series?

i havent tried the zeal levels but ive heard that they have the biggest range of view out of all commercially made goggles. the apx appears big from the outside but once u put them on u will realize that in order for them to be frameless, the padding sits behind the lens on the inside of the goggles and in a sense restricts ur view (if that makes sense). same goes for smith I/Ox. in my experience out of the goggles ive tried on, i find the eg2 have the most peripheral view. i plan on buying a pair of oakley canopy's for this season though because oakleys optics and vision cannot be beat.

I love eg2's. I have used all the goggles listed above and still go back to the eg2. The closest peripheral I have found to them is the quicksilver Hubble.

Love my Fishbowls, but helmet compatibility is a bitch. Still haven't found a helmet that works with them.

On a somewhat related note would you go for the smith i/ox or the oakley airbrake? What in the oakley line is comparable to smith i/ox? I am looking for something that will not fog, has large peripheral, and comes with multiple lenses (sunny and flat light).

If you fog really easy get the smith iox with fan. That or the iox has better peri than the air brakes. I have a pair of airbrakes that got worn once and ow sit in the box on the shelf. Gonna five them to my sons coach this year.

Try them both on and see for yourself!

My eg2s have only ever fogged up if I get snow in them. I love them.

I like my Optic Nerve Boreas gogs alot. Not the biggest maybe but frameless, super soft (easy to change) and really fit great with my helmet. (Bern Watts)
