FIRST IMPRESSIONS: SPY Optic’s new Bravo goggle is offered in 11 different colorway/lens technology options with great-looking design features. We reviewed the Tokyo Rose frame and Happy Rose w/Dark Blue Spectra lens, the latter of which has a really cool story. The company’s new Happy Lens technology is designed to block harmful short-wave blue and UV rays while letting in some long-wave blue light, which research points to being beneficial by promoting balance in the body, said to uplift mood and alertness. The lens is also good for color and contrast, i.e. enhanced vision. With triple-layer face foam, this style doesn’t have the lowest profile, width wise, but it’s length and height dimensions are a nice size without total face-takeover, and it sports a decent field of vision.

FAVORITE FEATURES: If it’s possible to be happier while skiing, we’re all for it and can’t wait to get these goggles out for an on-snow spin. Another awesome, tangible technology feature from Spy is its Lock Steady super intuitive, quick lens change system that pops out with the push of a button and snaps back in just as easily. We also love free mirrored bonus lens, super cozy, moisture-wicking face foam and the anti-fog components.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: Performance worthy of a standing ovation. The Bravo is a midsize goggle that features our Lock Steady technology—the quickest, fingerprint free lens change system on the market—as your first line of defense against the ever-changing elements of Mother Nature. A free mirrored bonus lens allows you to adjust quickly to changing conditions. With Lock Steady, just touch the button.
