Review: Dragon NFX2 Goggle

Riding with the updated new NFX2 goggle from Dragon.

Following the introduction of the NFX motocross goggle roughly two years ago, Dragon has returned with their revised NFX2 system. The NFX2 features an integrated removable outrigger and claims to achieve a tighter seal with the face than any other motocross goggle on the market. It also makes tear-off application and removal as straightforward as possible.

The NFX2 features Dragon’s patented frameless technology, the all-new Swiftlock lens change system, injected dual all-weather anti-fog treated lens, armored venting, premium quad-foam technology, silicone beaded strap backing, removable nose guard and an extra wide peripheral view.

By far the biggest improvement on the revised NFX2 goggle is the addition of the outrigger system. The previous model lacked this and did tend to sit not quite firmly enough on your face, whereas with the NFX2, this is certainly not a problem. The outrigger also makes mounting and using tear-offs much easier, so it’s a huge improvement.

The Switchlock lens change system is also a great addition to the goggle, its design is super simple and easy to use. Changing your NFX2 lens literally takes a matter of seconds, Dragon have really nailed it with this feature.

The overall frame design looks awesome, it is on the larger side overall in comparison to other goggles on the market, but it’s slightly smaller than the original NFX and will fit in a range of helmets with ease. The updated design, paired with the outriggers is a win in our book, these goggles look the goods.

Our Jason Anderson signature model NXF2 goggle also came equipped with a dark tinted lens, which is perfect for our Australian summer and it looks great. Included in the box was a well-padded goggle bag, a 10-pack of tear-offs and a lens shield.

It’s actually quite hard to find a fault in the Dragon NFX2 goggle and it’s a great overall package. We did find that with the nose guard in place it interfered with our Bell Moto-9’s mouth piece, but obviously being a removable nose guard we took it off and the problem was solved. Simple!

We’re really impressed with this revised model here at MotoOnline.com.au. If you’re searching for a goggle that looks awesome, fits great, is easy to use and performs at a high level on the track, the Dragon NFX2 is the goggle for you. Its evolution is impressive.

Retailing from $169.95 through to $219.95, the Dragon NFX2 is available in a massive array of lens, frame and strap colour options. Stop in at your local Dragon dealer to see the new NFX2 or visit www.dragonalliance.com to find out more.
