Hey ! Can I buy the frostbyte lime goggles with the gold chrome lens instead of the quasar chrome lens ? Ty
Hey there! Unfortunately the Frostbyte Lime goggles will include Quasar chrome lens plus a bonus pair too. We do have replacement lenses you can purchase too;
Review After Using
Outstanding field of vision, comfortable, but most importantly no fogging whatsoever. I prefer to wear a buff pulled up over my nose but this was impossible with all previous goggles as they would fog instantly, not the El Kabong's. At first the Presto-Chango system was more like Frustrato-Chango but it only took a few times to get the system down and swap these lenses out pretty quickly. Like Jacob mentions above this system is very solid with no gaps. Oh yeah, and as these fit great with the K2 rival pro per my original just-received-in-the-mail-got-all-torqued-up-and-put-on-my-goggles-and-helmet-and-walked-around-the-house review.
When I purchased these I was hemming & hawing about the El Kabongs or the I/O's, since it seems everyone and their mother has the I/O's and I generally attribute the widespread popularity of a product to its value...that, and marketing. I loaded the I/O's in my cart and just as I was about to click complete purchase I had a flashback to when I was but a child and my father instilling in me one of life's great lessons on following the masses, "Son, if everyone was getting their dong's pierced would you?" No, I wouldn't, and that's why I purchased the El Kabong and couldn't be happier.
Everything You Need In A Goggle
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
With Utah's variable conditions, I love having the convenient quick change system of the El Kabong's. I don't think it is the fastest lens change system in the game, but it seems like the most solid. I've noticed a lot of gaps and fogging from other seamless frames and quick change systems, but Von Zipper's has a great seal and I've never had an issue with fogging.
Besides that, I love the sleek look and field of vision you get. They are not too oversized once on your face, and the clarity and peripheral view is deceivingly huge. For a slim look with an epic view, I'd highly recommend the El Kabong's.

Zappos gear review
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I rode the El Kabong goggle about half the time last season and quickly fell in love with the sleek frameless design and styling. All El Kabong goggles come with a Yellow replacement lens, and swapping out the lenses is a piece of cake. Just push the buttons on the side and PRESTO you are done. I wear this with the ProTec B2 Helmet and it fits great. No gaps.
Overall the El Kabong is a great goggle for anyone looking to add a little style to their tech kit.
How does this goggle compare to the Skylab...
How does this goggle compare to the Skylab in size and field of vision? Compared to the Smith I/O? Compatibility with K2 Rival Pro helmet?
These have more peripheral with the kabongs, and a wider fit across the nose. the field of vision is comparable with the I\O but fit more like the I\OX. The I\O don't fit my face. I hope that helps?
Henry- These will have about 20% more vision than the Skylab, but they aren't that much bigger in size. The El Kabong is basically a rimless version of the VZ Feenom and will fit just like the Feenom. They are slightly larger than the Smith I/O and should fit just fine with most helmets. Hope this helps.
i just got mine in the mail today and they are VERY compatible with the Rival Pro because that's the helmet i have too.
I've got a Bern helmet with a brim, think...
I've got a Bern helmet with a brim, think these bad boys are too big to fit well? I've had EG 2.5s that worked perfect, but they are pretty flat on the top.
Similarly shaped to the Smith I/O and EG2s, I do not recommend using the with a brimmed helmet, I have seen people do it with all three models but its just not comfortable and you can never really habituate to having them one your face. If you are dead set on wearing one of these fish bowl style goggles (personally I love the added range of vision and the over all look) then I suggest upgrading to a brimless helmet in the near future as well.
I've ridden these with a Bern Helmet with a brim and they are fine. They are just about the same size as the EG 2.5 and they are the exact same size as the Von Zipper Feenom, just with better vision and the quick change option.
which bonus lens comes with these? assuming...
which bonus lens comes with these? assuming a low light lens but theres different kinds...? looking at the frostbyte/black chrome model
The bonus lens for this pair will be the Yellow lens- great for night riding, and very low light conditions!
Do these goggles fit snug on the Smith...
Do these goggles fit snug on the Smith Holt helmet?
From my experience with the Holt helmet, Von Zipper goggles usually don't have the snuggest fit. Not surprisingly, Smith goggles integrate very well with the helmet and fit nicely. My old Oakley goggles also fit pretty well.
It depends on the helmet. I've tried these with the Smith Maze and Holt and they fit fine. If they don't fit with your helmet you can always return them.
