FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Among the goggles tested, we found the Linx to have a below average field of vision. Peripheral vision seemed to be the weakest area, though vertical vision also felt restricted. However, the style is eye-catching, and Scott offers these goggles in several colors with various lens options.

FAVORITE FEATURES: The Linx’s fit (designed for small to medium faces) is especially memorable, and soft face foam helps reinforce that memory. Even though the goggle strap has a no-slip coating, size adjustments were effortless. Ventilation is especially generous, with airflow opportunities running around the entire frame.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: New for 2014/15 and featuring excellent field of vision with distortion free OptiView lenses is the SCOTT Linx. With a modern frame design, the Linx keeps its eye on the prize—the mountain.
