The Dragon DX goggle is a classic. This is the goggle I think of when I picture Dragon goggles. Similar to the Oakley A-Frame this goggle is extremely flexible and moldable. The lens is flat which helps keep the price down. Nearly 20 frame color and band pattern options ensure that you can suit your style. There is also a small version DXS for a smaller face.

Hands on Comparison
This goggle worked fine in the sun, wind, and rain. the flexible frame is unlikely to crack with a large impact. There are some gaps on the perimeter of the frame. Some air entered via the bottom of the goggles when charging fast. We noticed our eyes drying out at high speeds.
The Dragon DX breathes very well. The vent ports allow for air to flow freely. This pair did fog up during our uphill skinning test but did a good job un-fogging on the descent. The frame protrudes on this model. Because of the extended frame, snow, and water collected on the outside, adversely affecting our peripheral vision.
The Dragon DX style is a classic. With 18 frame colors and patterns there is a DX to fit everyone's personality. There is plenty of frame to draw attention. This goggle has been a staple in the industry and sets the bar for Style, although it looks best on smaller faces.
The DX is ready for resort and backcountry riding, as well as snowshoeing. These goggles especially excel in low-velocity snow sports.
The price of this goggle makes it an entry-level goggle. It works well for most applications, but there are plenty of entry options for a goggle that keeps the sun's UV rays out of your eyes.
