Yeah, I wish moto guys were more prevalent in their global marketing these days but I'll stamp this one by saying they still invest more money and time into their goggle development than any other goggle brand in our industry.
I grew up surfing New Smyrna, Bethune, Cocoa. Surfing has to be a smaller sport than moto.
They could do a lot of return marketing for moto!
I hate most new goggles. They either fit like shit, don't fit in the helmet, or cost too much. Why people pay the money they do for these 3 dollar Chinese piles is beyond me.
They don't fit in the helmet, so dirt gets in. They are garbage. 2017 and goggles now are no better or worse than 1985!
I don't want or need goggles the size of a face shield, or magnets to hold a lens because the snowflakes of the world can't put a lens in! I don't need fancy lens either. I need clear, smoked, and amber/persimmon/ whatever they call it.. And a dual pane version of each. That's it. I don't even need the ones with the holes.
Simple, cheap, and it works.
Does X Brand make some goggles that work?
This is a solid goggle that someone can afford to have multiple pairs of. Our race goggle bag has about 7 pair with all different lenses. I hope they don’t go away anytime soon. I don’t want to replace 35 dollar goggles with 135 dollar goggles.
I have a pair of O Frame because they are small and let me breathe well through my nose and because I find replacement lenses, but I have noticed that the last time they were not in stock in several large stores ....
I am curious about their large contracts for military goggles with the US Armed Forces. It has to be a much larger volume of product and profit when compared to MX volume.
Likely they receive a fare amount of financial support from those contracts to R&D and make new product to meet changing demands.
Is the military product driving new technology that then trickles down to the design of their MX (and really all action sports goggles) product lines? Would they continue if the contract funding was suddenly cut?
