We test Nike's Fade goggles - a great option if you have a 'medium' sized face
nike fade
Overall Score
Flexible 'Softrigger' construction
Lens change system a bit fiddly

The Nike Fade is a medium fit goggle but still gives reasonably good peripheral vision if you have a wider face; if your face is indeed medium you'll find the peripheral vision to be excellent.

We especially like the Fade's flexible 'Softrigger' construction, which helps to disperse pressure points for a very comfortable fit, especially when wearing a helmet.

You can change lenses thanks to Nike's Speed Change Lens System, which is good but not as quick or easy as Dragon's Swiftlock system, and will invariably leave fingerprints on the lens. So, instead of changing it, you're perhaps better to go for the option of using Nike's photochromic 'Transitions' lens which lightens/darkens automatically depending on light conditions, and in most instances will mean you don't have to change lenses at all.

Steaming up on the Fade's lens is rarely a problem since the vents are protected from snow and water ingress with a DWR Air Mesh cover.

You get a useful protective case, plus cloth bag/lens cleaner with the goggles, and for anyone with a medium-sized face looking for a pair of comfortable, helmet-compatible goggles the Fade is well worth considering.
