    Goggle opinions

    So I recently saw a mountain biking video where someone was using a typical biking helmet (not downhill) along with some I guess, mountain biking goggles. I happened to have a decent pair of Bolle goggles I used to use when I skied a lot, would those be ok to use for mountain biking? or would it look a little off and un-suiting?

    This is what the goggles look like.

    Goggle opinions

    They're probably warmer than MTB or MX goggles, but plenty of people just use ski goggles because that's what they have. However, summer goggles tend to be cooler, better ventilated, and have lighter tints, since snow reflects much more light than dirt.

    I use Oakley snow goggles, because of the amber tint and dual lenses.
