    XC winter riding with goggles

    I am a full on spandex wearing skinny tire XC guy, I even ride road. I finally got to try out a bell super with Ryders Shore googles today on snow packed trails with temps in the low 20s. Worked perfect no fogging and no burning eyes from cold air. If your thinking about trying goggles for winter riding or night riding do it. But definitely check out Ryders goggles they work with a bicycle helmet perfectly. I have some Smith googles for winter sports but they don't work well with a bike helmet. I was actually really surprised at how much air I could feel moving through the googles at slow speeds.

    Most goggles work well with the Super, and the visor swings up nice and high so you can tuck goggles just under it when you're not wearing them. Just pull them down when you start moving. Genius design.

    I'm a sunglasses guy, even in the wintertime.

    I generate a LOT of warmth and I could see goggles being too warm, except in really blistering cold temps. I have to be careful about wearing too much on my head on winter rides. A thin summer Buff over my ears and the top of my head tends to cover it. I don't bother covering my face unless it is in the single digits or colder.

    I use my Dragon snowboard goggles with my Bell super in the winter. I love them, they don't shift like sunglasses can, never fog up and work great at night with a light. They are actually cooler than my sunglasses I think cause they channel air through just not into your eyes.
    I like to fart when I'm in front of you on a climb:skep:
