In light of my recent post I wanted to ask all you hard enduro maniacs what you do for #eyeprotection when riding extremely gnarly and technical terrain. Our problem is that when we get in the tight stuff, and start working really hard at slow speed, the goggles just fog up way too much. Your eyes get hot and watery and ventilation becomes a real issue. I also have the same problem for cold, wet conditions with high humidity. An old trick I learned from a long time enduro racer was to run safety glasses instead of goggles. They're well ventilated, easy to remove and clean, and better than nothing if you get roosted in the face. You can run clear ones when it's dark and cloudy, or tinted if it's hot and sunny.
I also just decided to rip all the foam off of my Oakley crowbars to try and maximize ventilation. There were getting pretty old anyway, and figured I should be in the market for some new ones soon. Obviously this would be a major problem in super dusty races etc. But it's been pretty helpful so far to help me keep my goggles on for as long as possible. Still end up switching to the safety glasses if I'm sweating a lot at slow speeds though.
What do you guys do to help with this issue? Any tips or tricks? And before you guys say it, yes I know we need to ride faster. We're working on it, lol. #motogoggles #goggles
