I recently bought a Scott helmet and my old (!) Scott goggles were too tall from the nose to the top of the frame. Can you recommend any high-end goggle? In addition to short distance from nose to helmet, I want:
- Interchangeable glass with excellent flat light and sun glasses
- Great view to sides and downwards
- No fogging (I "workout" when I ski/snowboard, in addition to material technology, the air volume in the goggles may help)
I have tried several models, without finding THE perfect fit. Got a Smith I/O home yesterday to try more at home. It does tighten my nose, and has a poor view downwards. My old Scott goggles (not with that great optics) have a more teardrop shape, and gives me significantly better view of skis, when needed. And they do not squeeze my nose more than the I/O. I have not tried the I/O7. The Oakley Airbrake did not feel that terrible, although not perfect, and they gave an unusually strong pressure on my cheek. The Oakley Flighdeck looked huge, but did not feel that bad, although, worse than Airbrake. I must also admit that the I/O had a more clumsy lense change mechanism than the Airbrake.
Any input and experiences are welcome!
