Ive noticed that these companies are all making the same goggle in different colors and I was just wondering if anyone else noticed or knows why?

They’re all made at same places in China I looked into it myself few years ago before all these places started of course lol, you’d be surprised how cheap you can get stuff made.

Basically same exact goggle as 100% better ones ( whatever model is ) with triple layer foam, etc for like 7-12 bucks pair with lower quantities too, price went up with custom boxes and packaging but not much, and they retail them for like 60-70 bucks I think lol.

I was going to least get ones that looked little different so they were set apart from others though.

Open source mold from China or Taiwan, it's common...It's basically a copy of a 100% racecraft but they remove part of the frame down by the nose piece. For some of them, the outriggers look like they were taken from one of Eks Brand's goggles.

The only goggle I could not find a Chinese copy/clone/unlicensed (even though they are definitely Chinese) of, was the Airbrakes. Other Oakleys sure. With that said, I am blown away by guys with thousand of dollars in gear, new bike, aftermarket pats, nice truck/van, and yet they have a set of 10-15 dollar goggles. May as well wear sunglasses.....

As child my father bought me a pair or arnettes in the late 90's, when I got back to into riding I bought myself a pair of 100% apart from looks and style the quality doesn't even come close to the arnettes.

Today most products in the world are polished turds.

Why should googles be expensive? They are plastic with a 10 cent strap and 2 cent foam.

Bro they literally stop rocks from getting lodged in your eyes. Pay for $80 racecraft+ with molded lenses or buy a pair of $10 goggles with a grocery bag for protection. $80 isnt a lot for goggles. $200 for oakley airbrakes is a lot.

That'll be because 90% of products are typical chinese junk.

Because they have to pay the riders "$100,000/yr" to wear them and they give pros and top amateurs truck loads of free gear. The consumer pays for these expenses.

I think Oakley and Smith are the only two companies that manufacture their own product the rest as stated are from the same company over seas.
