Currently running air brakes and my only complaint is that the lens is so expensive... especially the prizm lens.
In the market to try something new. Any recommendations?
Thanks!-

I was set on 100% for a long time, got a pair of air brakes with prizm lense and it was game over for 100%
The design features, the lense clarity, field of view, and lense strength are obvious. But what got me is I can ride all day with the Oakleys where as I sweat through 100% in 1-2 rides and have to alternate.

Would like to try the armega

I’ve been very happy with my Spy Foundations. They keep the sweat out of my eyes well and offer excellent peripheral vision.

I've tried virtually all of the current higher-end goggles out there and some of the cheaper ones as well. Most of it is just going to come down to personal preference and your face shape/size. I've been a long time Oakley guy, just because they fit my face the best, really nothing else. I agree with you, what they want for replacement lenses is definitely higher than the rest. I only use clear lenses, do luckily I don't have to pony up for the pricier mirrored lenses.

Value for money, I think Scott takes it. You can get Scott Prospects for $60-80 street price and they are solid. You don't get the same level of lens that you find on the Airbrake or Armega, but they seem just fine. Scott also has the best roll off system in the biz. I still keep a set of Scott roll offs in my bag, just for mud races. I've used Airbrake and Frontline roll off setups before and don't like then nearly as much as the roll off systems found of Scotts (or 100% for that matter).

I want to like 100%, but they just don't fit my face well. I have tried them all, and the Armega is an improvement for me, but still puts a lot of pressure on my beak of a schnoz. They do seem to fog easier than some others, in my experience. That was actually a big part of why I went away from them.

Surprisingly enough, I've really been liking the Leatt Googles as well. They are on par with the Armega and Airbrake in my opinion, and happen to fit my face well. They also did a great job with the anti-fog feature on the lens. I live in Florida and the humidity can cause horrible fog, especially when riding tighter tracks or XC stuff. If that's an issue for you they're worth a look. The only issue I have with Leatt is the foam started coming unglued on one pair, but they replaced them, no question. I've had quality control and durability issues with some of their other products in the past, so my faith is their longterm wear is low. Sorry, but it's the truth.

Idk what kind of dealerships you have around, but the CycleGear by my house has pretty much every model of goggle by Scott, 100%, and Oakley. Maybe find one near you and try some on with a helmet?

Thank you for all the feedback! very helpful

I was a Scott believer until Leatt came out with their models i was sold. They are extremely comfortable, breath very well and don’t fog. Not to mention they are Bullet proof lenses!! The lenses are very affordable too, all of them. I personally have a smaller face but like the 6.5.

I love airbrakes but the $180 price tag hurts me. Love the prospects and hustles from Scott

Alright Lunger, Let's Do It

I was in our local MX shop and a guy had a new good quality rear tyre fitted complete with new tube, he also bought a lens for his airbrakes. The lens cost the most by quite a margin.

We were discussing this recently, I still use an oakley o frame which was given to me for being an usher at a friend's wedding 14 years ago. Still running the original lens too. I could never pay nearly £200 for goggles.

I like the 100% racecrafts and accuris, I haven't tried the armega yet but I'll splurge soon. I tend to wear the accuri more.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

If Scott had a lens comparable to the Armega that is all I would run.

I was a Scott Prospect guy until I tired the Leatt goggles. Not that I'm throwing away my Scotts, but I do find myself wearing the Leatts more than the Scotts. Leatt lenses are great quality, the tear off's and roll offs work well, the removable face foam is cool for washing and they are priced right!

In addition to the moto goggles, I wore the Leatt SNX snow googles snowmobiling last winter. Really impressed with the performance in some extreme winter conditions!

Sorry Oakley, still wear your sunglasses but I;m not spending $200 on goggles!

I just stick with my Spy's. I have no reason to be loyal to them but they've just always fit my face really well and I enjoy not seeing every rider with them on. They don't pinch my nose and my eyes are pretty centered, though that's less of an issue now with most goggles having such a big lens.

Fuck Luxottica.

I’ve been a Scott guy forever but having tried both the Prospect and the Fury, these new oversized offerings from Scott just don’t seal up against my face very good at all. There are huge gaps on both sides of my nose that would seemingly be absolutely terrible in dusty conditions.

Wish they still made the Hustle instead of replacing it with the cheaper Hustle X.

I'm bias to EKS brand. I know them, like them and satisfied with their product. Great fit, colors, price and can afford a few pairs!

Best rain googles with roll-off ?

Have Scott Hustle today. No Good at all.

100% with bubble lens ?

|

8/15/2020 2:18 AM

Oakley airbrakes for me, both roll-off’s and tear-off’s. I have 100%’s a go and never had an issue, I just liked the airbrakes a little more so I have stuck with them ever since! Good vision, fits the helmets I’ve used nicely (TLD SE4, 6D ATR2 and Fly F2)!

|

8/15/2020 5:28 AM

Tried Scott giggles and didn’t like how they felt. Have a sponsorship with 100% and have really liked all their models. Also all the lenses and tear offs interchange, except on the armega models.

exactly! I've been using them forever and nothing compares.

8/15/2020 5:40 AM

I wanted to like 100% as well but they just don’t fit my face well and they pinch my nose. Was using the lower end Scott’s with and without rolloffs but got some Prospects now and really like them. Still have the hustles with roll off set up for the woods.

|

8/15/2020 5:46 AM

I actually got a pair of Leatt 6.5 goggels yesterday, it will be interesting to see how they feel while riding. The specs and the price is really good, they kinda remind me of the 100% Armega goggles.

|

8/15/2020 8:08 AM

i prefer my 100% armega over the oakleys, im more then happy with them

|

Best bang for your buck , Dragon Vendetta.
CHEAP, fits great, replacements are cheap too.

I have a lot of goggles , both high and low end, but Dragon works all around best for me.
