Ladies, when it comes to snowboard gear, everything is “shrinked and pinked.” Although goggles aren’t the exception, they’re still cute and you’ll probably find a goggle from this list that you fall in love with. Whether you need interchangability, cylindrical / spherical lens, transition lens, mask and helmet compatibility or anything else, this list is an awesome place to start.
The Smith I/O is the mid sized frame in the line of I/O’s. It’s a reasonable size for ladies with mid to small sized faces. Its quick to change and will usually come with a dark lens and a low light lens so you can switch out and accommodate any kind of day at any time. We put it on the list as a great option if you aren’t into the I/OS.
Smith I/O S
The I/OS is the ladies specific version. It’s just like the I/O but a smaller frame. Hence the “S” in I/OS. Again, this is an interchangeable option that has the option of coming with a dark and light lens but doesn’t have to. Changing the lens is a breeze and takes only a few seconds. Check them out at a shop near you!
Smith Showcase OTG
Ladies, do you wear spectacles and don’t want to trade them in for contacts? These Smith Showcase OTGs are compatible with most low profile ladies glasses and work well with most styles. Although we do recommend staying away from thick frames with these bad Larrys.
The Electric EG3.5 is the smaller version of the EG3. This is new for this year but with a fair amount of testing we are confident that the 3.5 will be just as good as the 3. So being the smaller version of the 3, the EG3.5 is an awesome option for the ladies who want an amazing amount of peripheral vision, an interchangeable option that sets itself apart from the rest and a sick frame-less style that looks awesome with any face, helmet, hat combination. In terms of the unique interchangeable technology, Press and Seal, this model uses a gasket to push the lens into the frame and crease a seamless attachment that wont go anywhere. In addition, the frame is essentially made out of one piece and is very durable. Check out this video about the EG3 which is basically the same thing.
Here we have the Electric EG2.5 has proven to be a great option for anyone who wants a clean looking goggle with a traditional frame and still be able to change out the lens at a minutes notice. The EG2.5 is the smaller version of the EG2. The EG2.5 is going to be much similar in size to the EG3.5 than the EG3 so keep that in mind when watching this video.
Oakley Flight Deck XM
The Oakley Flight Deck XM launches a year after its big brother, the Flight Deck. The XM is the smaller version with all the same bells and whistles. This is Oakley’s answer to everyone’s desire of a frame-less goggle. The XM features Oakley’s version of the gasket attachment system to interchange the lens which doesn’t seem to be as quick as other options but still works well for having a secure of confident hold of your lens. Great peripheral on this one so keep this if that is important to you.
Oakley A Frame 2.0
The Oakley A Frame 2.0 is the second generation of one of the best selling goggles in Oakley’s history. The boys at Oakley have taken the A Frame back to the drawing board and have come back with a wider, taller view as well as better air circulation, and articulating outriggers. Check this one out if you loved the original.
The WM1 showed up on the scene after the M1 and is specific for women. Anon makes the quickest interchanging lens on the market. The WM1 utilizes 7 magnets on the frame and lens which allows them to snap together no problem. They have great peripheral vision and everyone who has a pair loves them.
Always having issues with your goggles fogging up when you have a mask on? Check out the Derringer. This bad girl uses magnets throughout the frame and lens to allow them to snap togther…but wait THERES MORE! The Derringer features a flat lens and also has magnets around the nose of the goggle that allows you to snap a mask with magnets into the goggle. This MFI technology is used in a few of the Anon models but this one is women specific and looks great on anyone.
Being the smaller version of the Dragon NFX, the NFXs is another great option for the ladies looking for a frame-less, interchangeable, cylindrical lens option that comes in a great selection of colors and is backed by an awesome company.
Looking for that spherical lens option, with quick change and that comes in great colors? The Dragon X1S might be the right one for you. Not only does it come with all the above, but this now features transition lens technology that will allow you to keep one lens in that changes from high to low light. Check it out at a store near you!
A favorite for our boy Sage Kotsenburg, the Nike Fade is a great option for any girl or guy on the hill. This classic look from Nike has done well so far and seems to attract the ladies for it’s look and functionality. Featuring a cylindrical lens, 100% UV protection, anti-scratch and fog protection and lots of great venting. Keep your vision tight with the Nike Fade.
