    Posted: Jan/13/2012 at 2:06pm
Anyone wearing or tried the two above together?

I have the Red Trace (Audio) Helmet and looking at getting new goggles.
Some reviews say the EG2.5 dont fit with some helmets.
Its a long shot and was wondering if anyone has tried. If Its a definite no fit... I probably will just order the Dragon DX as my next choice.
(if it makes any difference I'm a fairly slim Asian)

Thanks

You know they actually have helmets/goggles made specifically for Asian-shaped melons?  No joke...look into it.

nuttynutz you can always bring your helmet into your local shop and get fitted with every goggle you try on. do you normally wear the straps inside or outside the helmet? I wear them inside and get the best fitting that way just an idea to your solution

are you near a sportchalet or REI? I brought my helmet in and just tried all their goggles. I know oakley crowbars come in an asian fit, but they might have ran out here on TS.

Nope not near those as I'm from the UK lol.

I know all about asian fit goggles, but im only interested in the TruSnow stock (sale items) as I have the voucher to use.
Was tempted to get the eg2.5 but reading reviews not sure it fits the helmet hence me making this thread to ask.

Use to have a trace helmet w/ aframes and didn't have problems in terms of compatability. Eg2.5 are the smaller size (approx same size as aframes) so it should fit.

EG2.5s are not as big as the EG2s
kind like the little brother so to say...

I'd try the eg2s over 2.5s if I had a choice. Peripherial would make it hard to go back to reg goggles.
