I need some goggles that allow me to breath through my nose.
509 X5 are really tight around my nose.
Aviators are just somewhat bad.
I have a pair of Dragon something or other that are unwearable.
I have a larger head, but my nose is not huge or anything.

Any suggestions to try?

Scott Snowcross LCG. They have a cut out for your nose. I love them!

I have same problem with nose pinch. Makes me light headed when I can’t breathe through my frickin nose! The LCGs fixed my issue.

I was a die hard Oakley guy. I have 23 different pairs. Finally tried the LCGs specifically because of the nose relief area. The quick change lense system works well. Wish lenses were easier to get though.

Make sure you get the snowcross version. The ski version does not have the roost deflector on outside of goggles across your nose. This helps keep your nose tip warm at high speed.

Both ski and snowcross versions have face foam recess area around nose.

I use Breathe rite strips while riding helps with that. I also find it helps me breathe better. I run Klim goggles and have a pair of Abom's that are awesome they don't pinch. Had the same trouble with the 509's I cut some of the foam away and that didn't seem to help.

I hear ya, My 509 goggles are horrible for it, At this point I'm completely done with anything from 509. Everything I've bought from them ends up in the garbage. Just bought the Klim viper pro goggles and gonna try them out this weekend but they feel pretty good so far.

This nose pinch thing is a little strange to me. I've been wearing helmets and goggles for 51 years and have never noticed nose pinch. Just got me thinking, could it be your helmet pushing your goggles down on your nose???

Also note the Scott Goggles are made in Ogden Utah. That’s not important to many these days. But it is important to me!

Definitely NOT China junk!

My cheap scott hustle snocross goggles work great no pinching, the LCG look top notch! After seeing my buddy fight with 509s ill never buy their goggles.

Yeah I think that has something to do with it. But if I have the goggles up higher so it doesn't push on my nose so much, my bottom eyelashes catch the foam when I blink. I think the goggles are just to tall and the nose cutout isn't deep enough and wide enough.

Those LCG look nice, but kind of hard to come by. You guys have certain vendors that carry them? Ideally Id like to try a pair on with my helmet, but I don't think thats going to happen around here.
