that's funny because ive been told by countless oakley and electric sales reps and from my boss that both were originally owned by the same company and r both highly trusted and influential in the ski industry in terms of optics. that being said i must admit that oakleys r better but electric r most certainly in no way shit.
the eg2.5 really hugs ur face and doesnt have the same feel the eg2 does. eg2s just fit so comfortably and really feels like nothing at all where as because the 2.5s arent as wide it has an odd pressure point on the bridge of the nose for me. best bet is to go into a shop and try both on. i got the gloss whites with a bronze/red chrome lens and worked really well in most conditions (before this pair i was riding with a dark rose lens from a different company) but im going to pick up a blue lens before the season starts so i have that little bit extra versatility.
EG2. The only thing that fits my fucking huge face. All of oakley's stuff besides the canopy and airbrake fit way too small and even then they feel pretty small. Haven't gotten to try out dragon's stuff yet. Don't have anyone in the are that sells them.
eg 2 just fits really fucking well... the canopy is the only oakley that has fit my face well. spy platoon's are pretty rad, and i gotta be honest, i really really like my eg2's better than any oakley i've ever owned or tried on.
i definitely scope out the situation, it's not like i hit the lights and swing my cock around until i strike something warm, i'm not a fucking oil prospector... -drew
most brands have the equivalent to electric's eg2 with a wide lens but nothing beats it. u've got the dragon apx, von zipper fishbowls (pretty fucking sick goggle too, u can bend it right in half on itself and pretty much molds to the face because its so soft and flexy), smith I/O and there's heaps more
Electric is owned by a french company called PPR, but was created back in 2000. Now Oakley was established in 1975, by Jim Jannard in his garage haha. They were bought out in 2007 by Luxottica who has zero relation to Electric.
That being said, they were never ever owned by the same company and both have very different technology. Yes I'm bias because I work for Oakley but we are considered one of the only companies with optically correct goggle lenses. I can't think of the name off the top of my head, but the patented technology means that at every single angle though the lens is correct no matter where you look.
I'm not saying electric is shit but get your facts straight next time.
stay steezy kids
Hi I'm Brandon!

I work at a Ski and Snowboard shop and to be honest it is all about personal preferance. There are quite a few goggles I would recomend and have been very popular. Those would be the Dragon APX's, Smith I/O's or Smith I/OX's, and the Oakley Crowbars, Oakley Splices. Those are all very good options. I ride with the Dragon APX's and this years SMith I/OX's. Both give you a wide and clear vision of everything. If you are someone who is concerned about your goggles fogging up than i would recomend the Smith I/OX's. The Dragons can fog up pretty bad and it is almost impossible to un-fog them. For comfort, durability, and a good view i would go with the Smiths. But again, it is all about personal preferance.

Tried some of these on at a local shop the other day. They are absolutely massive. I was considering picking some up this year, but they are just way too big for my face. The EG2s seemed to fit me a little better while having a similar size, so I'm thinking about getting some of those instead.
