    Need Goggles

    I've been running goggles for some time now and I think its time for some new ones.

    I could use some reccomendations on a good pair, here's what I want to keep in mind:
    Anti Fog
    Fits Well
    Good Coverage

    Thats basically it. Any reccomendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Oakleys are nice, if you havent tryed the blue lens you should look into it. It shields the sun, lightens the shadows & has very little blend with the terrain.
    Alot of colors like yellow will blend into the soil color & it's diffricult to see the transitions like whoops.

    my scott goggles work great.

    i agree blue lens are awesome. unless u ride in places with very little shade. then i would go with a darker lens.

    I have heard nothing but good things about adidas goggles...
    I love my O-frames, but they can fog sometimes

    EDIT: last night I was using them on the 400ex while it was snowing, could see everything, and they didnt fog untill I went inside...

    I never really understood the application of goggles in a mtb environment.

    I mean it's not like you got mx guys in front of you kickin up stones.

    Most moto shops cary the No Fog Cloth & spray. It's not a guarantee of no fog but it does help alot.

    sunglasses have always worked better for me. They are much cheaper, easier to replace, clean, dont fog, arent hot, block the wind and rest of the crud just as well, and fit with any helmet.

    Mx goggles are nice because they don't have vent holes in the lense, which allows dust to get between lenses, but they aren't very good at de-fogging while biking. I run a regular ski goggle (Oakley Wisdom) because they don't fog and very little dust actually gets between the lenses. Oakleys are the sh*t.

    Another good product for gogles is a product distributed through MSR Moose called Dust off, it keeps the dust off the outside lens. You can bail in silt & still see after, great stuff for places like N*

    You know darned well you're wearing those prototype Oakley tequila goggles...the new "T" frames. Speaking of goggles...have you seen those new beer commercials where the dorkey dude is wearing helmet and goggles and doing all these dangerous acitivities like, "actually listening to your girlfriend talk uninterrupted for 10 seconds"? I think of you everytime I see one of those...LOL! I swear I saw an Azonic FR bike leaned against the wall in the background in one of those commercials.

    I love my Utopia Too Dirty's. I use 'em for snowboarding in the winter and riding the rest of the time. All I have to do is swap lenses. Super comfy. Hard to fog. Fairly cheap.

    What do you guys think about the Azonic B1's? Or the Fox Main gogles? I'm thinking about getting some pretty soon. Would it be worth it to spend a little more on something like crowbars, or are the others just as good?

    Blur B1's are clean goggles.

    I've ran the old school Rockgardn's B1 and Scott goggles.
    1. Scott
    2. B1
    3. Rockgardn (new version or old)

    In that order.

    Woooow this thread is old. As a result of this thread I went Blur B1's. However, I later wanted to up my steez factor and I got Crowbars.

    If you have $60 to spend on goggles, get Crowbars. Seriously.

    I came off fast, my pedal hunted my face down with ruthless predatory aggression.

    I now wear Fox Main goggles, and don't get mud in my eyes any more, and can see better at high speed.

    I have some Thor Enemy Goggles, they are genuinely brilliant. Great wide lense, soft foam with a great fit, great breathability with a really good drilled frame, not fogged once yet and they look the s**t.
    I tried on Oakleys and some Smith ones amongst others and these were the comfiest. They have since proved to be awesome.
