Review : 100% Accuri Goggle Frame

After years of riding on a budget for whatever reason (too many expensive hobbies beeing one of them), I decided to look for a goggle frame to use dirtbiking and snowboarding.

Just compare this pic and the pic on the review of the oakley L frame.

The frame material in itself, the ventilation optimization and the great quality of the foam, especially the 3 layer foam on the outside, is just a world apart from the L frame.

On all the points I had a complaint with the L frame, this 100% Accuri fixed the problem. Whatever the use or lens.

I have a double layer lens red mirror for snowboard and dirtbiking in summer and a white single lens for enduro riding all year long.

Whatever the season or the sport : no fogging.  (exept on the lift at the mountains, you get a bit)

Whatever the season or the sport : no sweat in the eyes. And I sweat a lot, think Zinedine Zidane kinda sweat (interview right after a game :)

The view angle is much better than the L frame. In fact I don't even wish for anything better.

They fit perfectly under an Arai, a suomy and a troy lee designs.

They fit really great with a bern macon for snowboarding.

The design is great and does not aply any pressure on the temples of your frame.

They fit well with eyeglasses of less than 145mm wide and 40mm of height. Think a glass of 55 x 35 aprox. If you wear a pair of perfectly flat ray ban then try them out first to be on the safe side. If your glasses are not 100% flat, you are good to go and can order online.

With all the available lenses for snowboarding and dirt biking, this is a no brainer.

I'm so glad I invested in those. Do the same and you will be too.

Review : Oakley L Frame MX Goggles

They have been around for years for the eyeglasses wearer out there that rides Dirtbikes. Some might have used them also for snowboarding, but really it's not what they're made for.

There was a time when I thought : "Why pay 100$ + for a pair of goggles?" I don't see how all this money can make a difference in the product.

For a couple years I used those while enduro riding. I mean they do their job but as soon as you heat up, fog comes in, it's just inevitable.

Comfort is OK, Ventilation is OK, they fit great with any helmet out there that I've tried (I'll be reviewing some soon)They handle fine a good cleaning.

The cons are : quick fogging and very limited sweat soaking. Nothing unbearable, but not that great.

On hot summer days (30°C) while doing some medium hard enduro, log crossing and overall messing around, I would have sweat in my eyes in a matter of minutes, a real challenge.

On winter days, fogging.

The in between is fine.

For the beginner or the guy on the budget, this can do it, but don't expect to rave about them.
