hi guys long time lurker.. Just a quick question with the high end mx googles who has experience in both these brands? Ill be using the googles for racing only once or twice a month (have a lot of practice googles). Current prices in Australia are around $220aud for airbrake and about $200aud (discount on now for $175aud) for nfx2. Motorcycling Australia rules for 2017 will be no tear off so roll of system only my plan is to get several years out of these googles. Love some honest reviews as ill have to order online with out viewing the nfx2. I have searched youtube and cant get a VS video just separate reviews where they both love the googles.

nfx2 is a brand new goggle line for dragon so its unproven... The price seems steep as hell compared to 100%..which looks like the same goggle. But I haven't used them so my opinion isn't worth much

The NFX2 isn't a new line just a revision from the NFX the NFXs which was smaller and now the NFX2 has a small frame around the lens and I believe a new way to change the lens. I've been wearing the NFXs for about 2 years and love them.

I really like the look of the airbrake. I've heard because the lens and frame are so stiff that it doesn't fit everyone's face the same.

Both great goggles, maybe go with which one is the best price on goggle, extra lens and tears offs. Most importantly which one fits your face and helmet best..

NFX2's are bad ass. I think all NFX's have the easy change lenses. Which are great. They are expensive. I got a pair with transition lens for a stealio, so I bought them. I am not sure if I would pay $200 for them though.

I have never even hold a pair of nfx goggles in my hand but i LOVE my set of Oakley Airbrakes. People may be a bit skeptical of the price but i can guarantee that they are worth the money.
