Frontal ventilation goggles vs side ventilation and fogging

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello,

for example:

http://www.pocsports.com/en/product/1276/iris-bug

 

vs

 

http://www.pocsports.com/en/product/1467/lobes

 

The bug should fog MUCH less shouldnt it? In this case why most goggles dont have frontal ventilation. What am I missing?

Your missing all the ventilation from under being pulled up and through much like the Smith I/O series. Then there's the anti fog coatings and whatever system POC uses to deal,with moisture between the lenses. The Bugs are older technology . The price should be a hint as well. No on charges nearly double for a goggle in their line that doesn't work MORE effectively. Again, thinking of the older tech Smith goggles vs the I/O series. POC makes a good product, but I'm surprised the Lobes only come with one lens standard.

:-) yeh but I have another problem. I put prescription insets. So I need it ventilated the goggles lens antifog treatment is only part of the problem.

About smith. I cannot buy smith. I got poc helmet....

 

Plus what do you think about photochromic goggles? Do they really change from white to black?

Are you sure the smiths are incompatible? Photo chromatic... Don't see why they wouldn't work, but I've never had any.

My general thought is that you should build your system from you glasses out. Get THE goggle that accommodates your glasses/prescription needs, then get a helmet.

Unfortunately the only 2 companies in USA that have MIPS are POC and SCOTT. Dont like scott so thats why I started with the helmet.

When you breath out, do you blow down, or does your face mask keep the moist exhale in and lets it go up into the goggles.

Try blowing out or down. I have noticed when its very cold and I pull the shellsclaver up that sometimes the goggle fog up.

Too bad, they make some very nice goggles these days as well, though it's possible their helmets aren't compatible with your particular mellon. :)
