    Your goggles of choice?

    I'm looking to get some new goggles and am not sure what to get. I was looking at the Fox Main and the Oakley Crowbar MX. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    What ever is cheap. This way you can go through 1-2 pairs a season with no worries.

    I'd recommend SCOTT NO SWEAT Xi goggles.

    Perfect fit, not too pricey. never fogs, spare lenses for days... They're dialed.

    I swear by Oakley goggles (and sunglasses) they've saved my eyes a few times. That being said, I recommend taking your helmet with you when you go goggle shopping; not all goggles will fit all helmets correctly.

    I really like Oakley Crowbar with my Giro Remedy, also worked with my TLD D2. Like Combatmutt said, try to fit a few pairs with your helmet and see what feels best.

    Oakley O frames. Cheap and clear replacement lenses are only $5 at my local moto shop.

    My Thor heroes have been really good, a bit tight though with my D2. Think it's more about choosing the best looking ones when it comes to goggles, I mean you can't go wrong with designing something as simple as goggles can you? :P

    I had troubles with my Rockgardns when thing got wet. They got fogged out pretty easily.

    3 things i would be most concerned about.
    comfort and fit,
    will they fit your helmet
    how much are replacement lenses.

    you want a pair of goggles that are going to be comfortable to wear, will fit inside your helmet and not pinch, nip or dig into your nose, not fog up when it's cold or wet,,, and a pair that you can get replacement lenses for at reasonable cost.

    I had used Spy Targa's for years with no issues. Recently switched to Smith. I've tried the Fuel's and the Intakes. I personally didn't like the fit of the Fuel's in my D3, but I prefer the intake over both the Targa's and the Fuels. I like Smiths Roll-off system better than tear offs as well. The smiths also tend to not fig as bad as the spy's in rainy weather.

    I like my Scott 89Xi. Held up better than my Oakley O-frame, but I guess I took care of it better. I guess I'm sticking with Scott. The Tyrant looks tempting.
