I use Scott Turbo Flows, I think many brands come with interchangeable lenses for varying light conditions, can probably slip them in a hat bag,etc. when you ride. I just use clear, my helmet has the visor to help shield the light.

Hey guys: Well I recently made the transition to a SnoX style helmet and the goggles I have are the Smith Cariboo Airflows. They are just sweet and are nice and wide so that you can get a nice view, and they are also excellent for sealing up around your helmet opening. I also wear glasses and instead of wearing contacts I have prescription lens inserts for these goggles. I got them from a company called Pro-Vue. Their website is if that interests you also.

Kick ass!

i have a set of thor (same as scott 89x i think) and a set of smith snow warp airflows, with the extra nose guard. the thors with a clear lens sucked cuz they didnt cover enough of your face and they fogged alot. the smiths fit nice and are comfortable, but still fog when you start to sweat. i have a yellow lens that works awesome on a more cloudy day, i think you can really see better, and i have a dark tinted lens called sol-x that i swap out. the sol-x works good in the sun, but probobly a little to dark for a night ride, so you have to make sure to bring a lighter lens with you.

por vue prescription goggles with the snap on lenses, that way you can change the color when you need to. But I am finding the blue works very well.

Shut up and Race!!!

I got the Oakley O Frames and a HJC CL-X4 I only had a little fog up but I was riding before my breathe defflector came in. When i was fogging up I was pulling my snowmobile out of a 24" 4x4 rut. I like the helmet and the goggles best decision I had this season so far.

I have the KBC-SNX snocross/full face (interchangeable) helmet, and I've got a pair of Smith Warp goggles. They seem to work out great with the amber lens; amber seems to offer decent contrast in flat light conditions as well as clear vision at night. I think it's also an appropriate amount of tint for the sunny days. Also, I like that the Warps have the extended sides to them to make sure the goggles fit to your head tightley when on a helmet, they're helmet specific I believe. The only flaw, is that because of how the straps attach you aren't able to use Quick Straps if you want 'em.

I wear an HJC CLX sn snowX helmet with Scott turbo flows with an amber lense, they work fine. I tried a blue lense and it sucked day or nite.
