Every year, goggle technology seem to change and get more technical. This year, every brand has something exciting going on and while it all might sound different, the end goal is the same - to help you see better. Here are what the brands are doing this year, in their words:
Prizm lenses split the white light into individual colours. Then, just like an equaliser would boost treble or base to enhance a particular type of music, Prizm lenses boost the sensitive colours and filter the rest, leaving your vision with crisp detail that is not washed out by the flat light.
Dragon: Luma Lens
Luma Lens is a colour optimised lens technology offering ultra high-definition optics across the entire spectrum of light conditions. Engineered to optimise and improve visibility in all environments, Dragon's Luma Lens Technology delivers enhanced colour vividness, increased contrast, precise depth perception, and reduces eye fatigue for optimal performance.
Dragon Transitions adaptive lenses automatically darken in bright sunlight and lighten in cloudy or snowy conditions. The lenses are colour optimised to help enhance contrast and increase depth perception, giving you a clear visual advantage.
ChromaPop filters two specific wavelengths of light that cause colour confusion. By doing this the lens delivers greater definition, more natural colour, and unmatched clarity to allow you to see more detail.
VIVID Lens Technology effectively manipulates blue light by letting in contrast enhancing blue light, while blocking harmful UV light. Essentially, VIVID filters out the haze and frees your eyes to spot your line and focus on enjoying your experience.
Brose is a combination of our two best-performing base tints, bronze and rose, the Brose lens it the best all round lens tint for any light condition by raising contrast and increasing depth perception.
Anon: Magna Tech

In our words: There are a lot of buzz words around goggles these days and don’t get us wrong, the technology is really exciting. But to put it simply, each brand is trying to help you see better on snow so you can a) see where you’re going, b) have more confidence and c) have a better experience. Some brands have better technology in both their lenses and frames and generally, the price will reflect that.
The best thing to do is come in store and try each one on. Bring your old goggle and compare. And don’t forget to bring your helmet to match.
