a_pla5tic_bagAre straps from one frame model to the next swapable? For example, from A frame 2.0 to flight deck XM?
a_pla5tic_bagAlso are XM and M models the same?
BrandoComandoThe Oakley A Frame Straps and Flight Deck Straps are not interchangeable. They have different connectors. Maybe you can get creative by cutting off the strap and reattaching it to the plastic connector, but idk how to do it and I wouldn't recommend it. Replacement Flight Deck straps are available on the Oakley website for $14.
I'm 95% sure the old XM and current M sizes are the same. The old naming scheme was confusing. I think they changed it from XL and XM to a more normal L and M
SofaKingSickdo you know if these replacement straps will work on my oakley Canopy goggles?
BrandoComandoThey might. I can't find any official info about it online. You should be able to pry a flathead screwdriver or butter knife into the goggle strap attachment area to remove your straps and see if they look like the replacement straps on their website. Oakley lacks a lot of literature about this kind of thing.
SofaKingSickyeah right? i don't really see anything specifying it which is kind of surprising cause i thought they'd like to push the idea of c u s t o m i z a t i o n with replacement straps and all
thanks! it looks like it will fit to me too. i'll update this thread when they arrive and i find out
BrandoComandoPlease do! I'm curious.
Knowing Oakley and their parent company Luxottica, it wouldn't surprise me if they keep quiet about replaceability and repair because they want customers to buy brand new goggles if a strap or lens gets worn out or damaged
