Great pricepoint goggle that is super cool.
Oakley did a smashing job with getting an enhanced field of view goggle (read: massive) for a decent price.
My main complaint of the goggle was that I couldn't stop a very subtle draft from getting in, no matter where I positioned it. I don't know if this is the hat I'm wearing, the shape of my face or what but I really can't seem to get it to go away completely.
The goggle has the kid of optical quality that you would come to expect from Oakley which is top of the line. Its nice to have complete clarity when you're barreling down the hill.
Color selection is great, visibility when riding switch is great (make sure to sag these though or you'll lose downward vis) and they have the typical fog resistance of a high-end goggle.
Good bang for the buck, definitely recommend as a very solid option.
It was really nice to see Oakley come through with a really well priced quality pair of goggles.
To start with, these things really are XL, if you have a small face or prefer a more subtle goggle, steer clear of these.
The result of the goggles being so big is a really big range of vision. I never found these goggles to block off my peripheral vision and generally found the optics to be of a pretty high quality with very little distortion, even at the edges of the lens.
My one complaint would be that they protrude quite a long way, making them difficult to feel flush fitting against my helmet, ive tried them with a few helmets and could never get them quite right.
That being said they are well worth the very reasonable price. I've infact bought a second pair with the Hi yellow lens for low light days, and greatly look forward to using them!
