need some help deciding on whether i get i/o's or io/x's, in my house i have oakley splices, crowbars, and von zipper feenom to compare for sizing and my buddy has some i/o's, which goggles are the closest fitting to the io/x's?
haha, my nose is not big by any means and neither is my face, i just think the io/x's look a little better but by the sounds of it there gonna be huge, going with darkness i/o's and matte black maze this season
well i/ox is an "oversized" goggle so I would say they compare to the EG2s and Dragon APXs. I've never tried them on but seen them close up in person at a shop. It would definitive be helpful to go to your local shop and check if they have a pair to try on.
Other then that, I've had the i/o for three years now with the same 2 lenses since day 1. Not a problem to report.
i/ox's are freakin huge, and if your face is anything but ginormous, youll look pretty funny. Go with the i/o. I have them myself, and they fit all faces sizes very comfortably. Best goggles that I've ever owned.
Ignoring the sizing issues aside(which I never found a problem with either the I/OX or the I/O), the I/O's are so damn much better for lens changes, the I/OX's have a much larger view, or so It seems to me, but changing lenses is so damn annoying, so in pretty much every way I/O's are better.
With I/O's you just flip the two tabs at the top frame of the goggles and pull the lens out, with the I/OX's you have to flip the tab, and then spin the outriggers around, which is often annoyingly hard and doesn't work the first time, it's the same way the I/Os's are done.
I went from Splices to I/OXs last year and I love them. I don't get why everyone is saying they're so enormous. I don't think they're much bigger than the Splices. Certainly not larger than Canopies or EG2s. Great goggles.
