Goggles

Postby reds » January 24th, 2003, 10:53 pm

I have been an advid skier for many years and raced a lot as well. As far as goggles go, Scott makes a pretty decent one, however, about 5 years ago I picked up a pair of Briko goggles and was amazed at how well they fit, even with wearing a ski helmet.

Goggles are goggles, it is the color of the lens that will make the goggle useful or not. I have found that usually a rose colored lens will give you the best results for just about any light conditions.

Different manufacturers have different shades for all the similar colored lenses, that is why I also liked the Brikos.

I also have pair of Briko sunglasses that are shaped and I dont feel any wind on my eyes, even when making "rapid decent" runs. The thing I like about them is that they are photosensetive and get darker as it gets brighter out.

ill ask it again because i cannot seem to come up with a good answer. i have tried 3 sets of goggles now, scotts, smiths, and thors witch are the same as a different version of scotts. ALL FOG. if you are a trail rider, you wont have a problem. but if you start to ride hard and dont have constant air flowing in them, they fog. i tried anti fog spray and none of it works. i just carry two sets of goggles with me now, but you would they could invent something better. any ideas?

A No-Fog is the answer. I ride at least as hard as anyone out there, and ride in the coldest weather imaginable, and still haven't fogged with it.. MSR Superlight Helmet, Smith Goggles with Quicksnaps, No-Fog and a Balaclava. Perfect setup.

veedo, No-Fog is a brand name,it's a mask. I use the MX style, and it lives up to its name.
