I have a rather large head...do you think these goggles would be too tight with my large head and a helmet on?
Yes, these will be too tight as they're intended for smaller sized heads.
These goggles are great they rarely fog up if ever and you can see through them very good at night.These goggle are really good looking and once you get on the snow the lenses are fully reflective.
I went from the VZ Feenoms to these, and my only complaint is that they're a little bit smaller, kinda tight around the eyeballs. They're a bit tight on my nose but it aint bad enough to the point where it's annoying. They've got pretty decent peripherals tho. Personally I like a bigger goggle but these are an exception I guess. Oh and the colors are sick, I got the gray and orange ones.
Love these goggles. They are oversized, but look awesome. Lense works well in flat light as well as a blue bird day. Only complaint is the strap is a little tight when worn with a helmet, but it still works.
Not for helmet use
Just bought these goggles. Great field of vision, look awesome, but they didn't fit quite right. These could be great for someone else though.The strap is not very long, and the cinch in the back is bulky and doesn't fit well under a helmet clip. Also, with a helmet the nose piece got pushed down and blocked off my breathing through the nose. Overall, they don't seem to work with a helmet well.Without a helmet, they function much better. The short strap doesn't really matter unless your head is enormous, and there is less downward pressure on the nose piece.Bottom line, great goggles, unless you wear a helmet.
do these goggles have the spherical or...
do these goggles have the spherical or cylindrical lenses?!?!
sperical. electric goggles with the "s" after them mean sperical.
Just as expected
I just bought these goggles and, aesthetically, they're much like what these reviewers have been saying.
These goggles are on the larger side, giving you a much wider angle of viewing. The elastic band is very adjustable but tends to be on the tighter side. There is a good amount of padding on these Electrics. So even if these goggles do fit smugly on your face it will still be comfortable.
One thing to take note of is that these goggles may be too big for smaller faces. Taking into account the size and extra padding, these goggles may make it hard for you to breath from your nose. The padding may overlap too much of your face.
I hope these first experiences will help guide your purchase. Btw, I got the Gloss White/Silver Chrome one.
I haven't had the chance to test it in the field, but right out of the box, it's 1) big enough and has a slightly wider view angle range that my Dragon and Oakley A-frame masks that I've used before 2) the plastic sliders are tight on the rubber band - will hold tight on the helmet 3) the band is long just enough to sit on my Smith size M helmet 4) the shape of the soft side fits good on my face and goes well under the helmet. 5) comfortable price
these goggles are really sickk! i got the Flight Pattern/Red Chrome and ppl cant see my eyes which is awesome. They are really big but it looks awesome. Recommend it!
in the revies people tend to write that...
in the revies people tend to write that these googles are big, but not too big that it cant go without a helmet. which is good. but im 13, and i hav a small head xD would it still be ok? (i'd mostly wear a helmet with it anyway)
if your helmet has a high crown like berns then your okay but if it has a lower or even medium height crown then it will push your goggles onto your nose making it hard to breathe. the crown is the flat part right above your eyebrows when the helmets on
Comfy, tight, wide range
This goggle is super universal. I don't think anyone thinks this goggle is uncomfortable. The air flow is great and has not fogged on me yet. Make sure to get the spherical lenses though. Way more badass. It's a bigger goggle which makes visibility top of the line. But it is not to big that you can still rock them with out a helmet.
When I first started using Electric goggles I was stoked. However, through the season the quality of the goggles diminished quickly. After a few weeks the lenses started to fog, and after a few months the color that made the goggles cool started to fade and look dirty. Furthermore, the stitching that holds the strap to the frame started to fray and looked horrible. Also, the lenses scratch easily and have a weird glare that distorts your vision in bright sun light.
If I were you I would look at another option.
on and off
i bought these. They are totally awesome but they seem to fog sometimes. The goggles only fog about 1 in 10 runs but when it is foggy you cant see otherwise i'd keep on buying my electrics
Nothing like Electrics
Personally i love these gogs, so comfy, but you have to like big googles to like these. Thye're like Oakley's but wayyyyyy sicker. Pretty much i would not by any other pair but these!
