The 94 is one of the most stylish and charismatic guys in the sport and Fox is the leader in MX style gear and clothing (or at least one of them). It seems weird to me that the Vue goggle that is one of their premium products and that their most visible rider wears is so limited in color and style. What's the deal with that?

I know there all kinds of business considerations, but seems weird to be in 2018 and the top rider with the top goggle from the top company wears either black or white. And that's it.

Not a big deal, just curious

He’s currently ran a white, red or black version, then this last week he ran a maroon/white one. That was Fox’s choice in launching it, clean basic colors for the first half year. I’d expect some more designs as it enters its first full year, you’ll see the 2019 line on July 23rd.

Agreed. I like those a whole lot better than the ones with crazy logos & designs in colors that don't match anything else the riders are wearing. Of course, I'm old school and remember the day when all the factory guys wore colors of the brand they were contracted to, no matter what personal gear deal they might have. And yeah...I'm a big fan of the gear Kenny is wearing this season.

They look good, are clean and not cluttered with logos, and match anything. I think Fox did a pretty good job with their design/ color choices.

I also agree those look good. I like a plain single color look, goggles, helmet, and gear. There is tons of choices for flashy highlighter colors and not enough plain less flashy options.

Deal with it. Obviously Fox has better branding team than vitalsmile
