Best List: Contact snow sports goggles by Giro

Magnets. That’s right, magnets.

The Giro Contact goggles use magnets to help you change and secure their almost-frameless, spherical Zeiss lenses.

Just get a firm grip on the edges of your lens, then give a solid tug. The lens pops right off.

The Contact goggles come in a wide variety of color combinations, including but not limited to Coral Script, Blue Monotone and Black Fabrication. With triple-layer face foam and some excellent anti-fog coating, the Contact is an excellent all-day, all-conditions companion.

That way, when conditions on the mountain suddenly change, you won’t be digging in the powder or muddling about in the lodge trying to swap your “Black Limo” lens for something less dense.

So strap a pair of these oversize goggles to your new Giro MIPS-equipped Range lid and off you go.

El Niño for president.
