    Decent Goggles

    Hi all, has anyone got or had a set of Oakley Airbrake Goggles, if so, verdict please ?, I use Oakley O frame & Oakley Crowbars & I think the field of vision is a bit poop, Other recommendations will be kindly received aswell.

    I've had the airbrakes for a year now , seem fine , big wide view , and the lens pop out so easy you can whip them out and give them a real wiping when out on the trail , really handy . Don't seem to make me ride any better mind you . Hard to see where the £100 odd goes , but they're probably a bit cheaper now . And mine are still as good as they were a year ago . Lens are about £15 , and I've only changed one in a year .

    Thanks Mufynman, I'm certainly not gonna win any championships either but it would certainly be nice to see where im going a bit more clearly, they are a bit pricey I must admit but if they are worth it then money well spent, thanks mate...

    I didn't know 100 pound goggles even existed! affraid
    Think i'll stick to Oakley O frames - they're cheap (in comparison!) do the job and fit my wonkey nose Very Happy

    That's one good thing about the Airbrake goggles. The fit is excellent, they don't squash your conk so you can breath properly. As Mr Muffy says the lens system is the bollocks... Very Happy

    O frames are good as well Very Happy

    Airbrakes work great for me too. Only Goggles that actually fill the face hole in my soumy helmet!
