    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Giro Googles, has anyone used them with a full face helmet?

    Hi, I just got my self a 2011 specialized deviant 2 helmet in electric white, and of course im looking for a not so expensive goggles, which still looks good with the helmet.

    I found these:

    but since they are ski/snow goggles, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with GiroŽs goggles or snow goggles for biking??

    IŽd appreciate any info!

    Take your helmet in and try them on. I'm sure they work fine.

    Fir the same price you can get the brand leader on ebay, OAKLEY.

    I've got a pair of A frame goggles, one was 90 I think and the other 140. Rgw difference is the lens color. They are warm in summer but I don't know how much since I do not have dirt gogles to compare. Anyway I ride in the winter too and it's better.

    Lance's Giro shades cut his face badly after crashing at last year's Tour de France...he promptly switched to Oakley.
