You can't always see what's coming, but you can give yourself better odds.
- The 100% UV-blocking polycarbonate lens includes coatings to prevent fogging and scratching so nothing gets in the way of you and the mountain
- Dual lens means that a layer of dead air helps prevent condensation and fogging of the inner lens, while top vents expel body vapors before fogging occurs
- Mold-injected thermo-plastic urethane frame flexes to your face shape and doesn't snap after righteous face-plants
- A 40mm elastic strap adjusts to your head, hat, or helmet with the help of articulating strap hinges
- Includes a microfiber goggle bag for safe and scratch-free storage

These goggles got the job done well for many sunny days on the slopes. They even got compliments, so they even serve an evolutionary purpose. I even used them for a couple night rides, and they have been my best goggles for that use.
Well done, Electric
Got the guru-matte color way with the bronze mirrored lens. I haven't actually used them on the slopes yet considering the fact that it's summer here, but I tried them on and all I can say is wow. The peripheral vision in these is incredible. Now I'll be ready if some idiot comes hurling at me from the side. Huge upgrade from my Anon Helixes and the cheaper Scott models I've been using for the past few years (which are OK if you're tight on money). They also come with a low light lens, so you can rock them in any conditions. Went ahead and got an extra bronze/mirrored lens as well because the deal was so good, so I don't need to worry about scratching them up in the Glades. Did I mention they also fit with my helmet very well? I guess this was what I've been missing out on by being poor. Gotta love the summer steal deals! =D

mow mirrored is the red chrome vs the silver chrome? which one is more mirrored and how close would you have to be to see my eyes through the goggles? orr would you not be able to see through at all?
Hyrum, the Chrome is just a coating on the bronze lens, so you will be seeing the same thing from behind on both lenses. It all comes down to how you want it to look like from the outside.

what color is the bonus lenses that would come with the volcom co lab egb2 goggles?
just got them. pretty cool, the lens is badass.
red chrome, gloss white
I love these goggles. They fit my face and my helmet well, and do a good job of keeping out the sun and the snow.
i got these last season (lime colour), at first i noticed a small patch on the lens looked like it was coming off. after 2 more days of riding it was like the film had come completely off.
i have heard that Electric and the Mountain are in dispute over this very thing.
Bottom line, they look and feel great, as to how strong they are is not a highlight, thats for sure.
Nick named them the fish bowls, their huge
Sweet goggles, I never purchased any of electrics products before, but i had to try these godzillas out. They never fog, and the peripheral vision is insane. I highly recommend them, and the price is do able.
great fitting goggle for those who have a smaller face. The Lens are great, fit well with my smith maze.

What's the difference between the EG2 and the EGB2 goggles?
Tom, great question. Hopefully this answers your question:
EG2 - Large Spherical(dome shaped) lensed goggle that will provide the most peripheral on the market. The spherical lens is of the same quality and impact resistance that our sunglass lenses are.
EGB2 - Slightly smaller than the EG2 and a cylindrical(flat) lens instead of the spherical. The flat lens allows the goggle to be little more flexible since its not as rigid of a material as the spherical.
Bottom Line: EG2 is a large goggle that will perform amazingly. The EGB2 is its little, slightly less tech brother.
This goggle is the cats pajamas
I have tried the spherical lens goggles and it was a notch up in clarity of the traditional goggles i have used, but I also lost a little peripheral vision. They also tend to fog a little easier. The EGB2 has such good lens quality and the frame allows you to see everything. It was sick, I was so stoked to finally get a pair of goggles that worked perfect. It also doesn't look like your getting ready for some cyber war. I was running the O frame Oakley for years because it was the best flat frame for me until I got a hold of these.
Like Karate Kid, Best of the Best
The EGB2 is a new style for us this season. However, I was able to ride them all last year and test pilot these bad boys. I have ridden every goggle in our line and this one is my personal favorite. Up until last year I was using the EG2 for four seasons. That goggle is great and very technologically advanced. However, I wanted to get back to the basics and try out a cylindrical(flat) lensed goggle like what I grew up on. Normally the disadvantages to running a goggle with a flat lens are that the lens itself can become distorted easily since its a cylindrical polycarbonate and not spherical, therefore not being "100% optically correct". Well Kip Arnette(our sole designer) worked some magic and out came the best flat lens I have EVER used. The goggs are lightweight, perform amazing, look great, and wont break the bank. It also offers the best peripheral of any cylindrical goggles ive ever used and I have still yet to get them to fog up. No more bogies come up on you hot at 9 o'clock! Did I mention you get a free lens too?! I know, its like were paying you to take them from us, cant get any better.
