Depends when he is racing, night or day? And if during the day are most of the days going to be a bluebird day. Most likely he is racing at night after school like most Nastar race leagues unless it is for school. But I would not spend the loot on these frames. Plus he almost always has to have a helmet on and these don't have a rubber grip inside the strap to help hold to the helmet. Check Anon and Oaks' goggles, little cheaper and better reflection lenses.
