Anon M2/WM1

Trade lenses fast—without removing your gloves.

Brand: Anon

Model: M2


Specs

Weight

5oz.

Technology
Plenty of goggles have slick lens-changing systems, but none come close to Anon’s in terms of speed and ease of use. “I’ve tried them all,” says one tester, “but they’re always a little too fussy and I end up wearing the same lens all day.” We challenged him to spend a season in the M2 (the WM1 is the women’s version), which uses 16 magnets and eight points of contact to secure the lenses. “It was a game- changer. Not only could I keep my gloves on to swap lenses, I didn’t even have to take the goggles off my helmet.” Just gently pinch the frame to remove a lens, then hover the new one in place and the magnets do the rest, pulling the whole package together with a reassuring click. Nitpick: The strap lacks anti-slip texture, so make sure your helmet has a goggle clip.

Lenses
You get two different lenses (there are 24 options just for the M2) depending on which color frame you choose.

Fog defense
Extra-wide venting channels between face foam and lens mean zero fogging.
