Abom Goggle

Posted

Pros: The technology works. The fog is quickly cleared with a press of the boost button. Fog-free all day.

Cons: Don't fit over eyeglasses. A bit too large with SMITH helmet, but this is also true of other goggles with this helmet (between helmet and nose).

I agree with everything the other reviewer says.  They work.  They don't fog.   The fit may or may not be good for your helmet.   The SMITH helmet I have is problematic for my other goggles (SCOTT goggles) and the ABOM goggles.  There is not quite enough room between the helmet and the bridge of my nose.   But this is a small anoyance, not a major issue.

 

I have another racing helmet (BOERI), and the goggles fit that helmet better.

 

They would be PERFECT if they fit over my eyeglasses, and also fit the SMITH helmet.

Pros: No fog, crystal clear lens

Cons: On the large side

I bought these goggles online in advance of a 10 day heli trip in BC. Note I did not participate in the Abom kickstarter campaign (although I was aware of it) so I can't comment on anyone's experience in that regard. What I will say is that the googles totally work! No mater what the conditions or the exertion level, you can clear any fog with a push of a button. While you can leave the anti- fog technology on, I chose to just turn it on when the googles began to fog up. Any fog disappeared very quickly. Any worry of fogging no matter what the condition becomes a thing of the past.

Actually it was pretty funny watching my boys regularly clearing their goggles in the chopper!

Couple issues that I hope Abom addresses in a second generation. The button to turn on the anti-fog function on the right side of the goggle is a little hard to find with gloves on. Also, the inside light in the upper right corner is a little hard to see with the goggle on in brighter light so it is sometimes hard to tell if you have turned the anti-fog function on. It would be great to have an audible confirmation but that may not be practicable with available battery life. Don't yet have a feel for extended battery life and how fast the battery life degrades. At first blush, battery life was no issue using the anti-fog technology as I detailed above.

As others have commented, the goggles are on the large side. This did present a challenge with a Smith helmet. I found the combination pushed the goggle down on my nose and made breathing more difficult out of my nose. I found myself pushing the goggle helmet combination up on a regular basis to clear up breathing through my nose. Not sure why the made the goggle this big and I am encouraged by some reports that the will be coming out with smaller models next year.

Given all of the above, good and sort of bad, you should run and buy these goggles immediately if you want to insure fog will never be an issue on your snow adventure. I have tried about every goggle over the years and Abom has finally solved the fog problem. Any other issues are a small price to pay and hopefully even those issues will be in the rear view mirror next season.
