Goggles For Giro Fuse

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
After skiing in 0 temps yesterday I realized that my old goggles that fit perfectly in my old Boeri do not fit perfectly in my new Fuse that I got from Steep & Cheap last summer.

I have 3/4"-1" gaps on either side of the lense so it doesn't make contact with the edge of the ear flaps.

This causes cold air to sneak in and freeze my ears.

What goggles have you guys found to be a good fit with the Fuse?

I want to try the Adidas goggles but no shops have them for me to try them on with the helmet.

Scalce,

You might try the Smith Regulator Fuse. I have those goggles and in my still ongoing search for a helmet, they seemed to fit the Fuse helmet perfectly. http://www.smithoptics.com/products/...ator_fuse.html

I use $19.95 Smith goggles. I'd rather replace cheap goggles regularly than worry about wiping off rime frost with the proper cloth (you mean the back of the pole handle isn't the best for the lens?) Anyway, they fit my Fuse just fine.

I am using a pair of Marker goggles that fit much better than my Spy's did.

I have the G10, and my Smith Goggles work perfectly. Seems that Smith and Giro work well together as my GF has a .9 and her Smith goggles alse fit perfectly.

I have the Nine.9, not the Fuse. But like Newfy I use cheapo Smith goggles and they work fine. On really cold days, I also use a thin windblocking balaclava under the helmet, which might help with the ear issue.

My wife has the Nine.9 and it is a little different shaped at the ear pads then the Fuse.

I have a thin skull cap that I wear on negative days but really don't want to use it on anything above 10 degrees.

I just need a Goggle that reaches around the face more and seals off the gaps.

So, in peoples' experiences, what fits better with a Giro Fuse, Oakleys or Smiths?

Both Oakley O-frame and Wisdom fit super, though Wisdom is bigger, and therefore cover more. A-frame prob. works as good as Wisdom...

So my advice is to get yourself a pair of Wisdoms!

I used to ski in with the smith fuse, which fit great. But this I wanted a better lens and up graded to the smith prodigy with the sensor mirror lens, fits even better and is the best lens I have ever used

I have that helmet and I use the Oakley Wisdom. A little pricy but I have 3 different lenses for 3 different light conditions so I had to go with a top end goggle.

They fit perfectly fine with my head and the helmet. That would be my recomendation.

Same, here!

Smith work well

The Smith Goggles are a good bet. The Fuse was a good choice for me. The light weight and fit are desirable. Even better are the "on the fly" vents. I just bought 3 more for my family. The only thing I can't attest to is its crash worthiness. The only minor complaint is that the "hold down' strap for the goggles is somewhat flimsy. Mine broke away, however Giro quickly sent a replacement when I contacted them. A+ for customer service!!

If you go with the Wisdom the helmet strap required is about 15 bucks extra. I have the Nine and the fit is perfect!

Giro Fuse and Smith prodigy = match made in heaven. complete airblock. Plus the prodigy is a medium goggle compared to the wisdom.

I have addidas Yodai which fit just great with the fuse
