The Electric EG3 is the third pair of frameless goggles I have tested this year and they have probably the most interesting and easiest lens change feature of the three.
Unlike most goggles which use a press fit or mechanical method for securing the lens, Electric go for a method were the lens and frame form a tight seal all the way around. Rather by being only held in at a few various points on the frame using a full seal means the lens fits very securely in the frame but changing the lens is as simple as pushing the lens forward.
The seal is excellent and changing lenses is very easy. I do like the system a lot.
The fit is wider then many goggles I have tried. Although the frame is not that tall it is wider then most I have used.This does help with peripheral vision but one thing I have found using frameless goggles this season is that you can get an almost tunnel vision look.
Having a frameless google means the lens sits further away from the face then a traditional framed goggle. This can mean you see more of the frame then you would in a framed style.
You get two lenses with this goggle and the lenses you get depend on the version you buy. Electric have 14 lenses available for the EG3 covering everything from Jet black to clear.
I was testing the blue and the yellow lenses. The blue is supposed to be good for more overcast conditions but I did find even in cloudy conditions the lens was quite bright. The lens has an overall yellow tint with the blue outer coating and to be honest it is not one of the best lenses I have used. Personally I have been much more impressed by the Oakley Prizm lenses and the Julbo Polarized lenses.
Overall if you are a fan of a frameless goggle take a look at the EG3. The lens swap system is great and they do offer a slightly different fit to most goggles on the market which could be good for some people.
