I've been riding for a while with not very good equipment except for my boots, bindings and board. This year I've been upgrading everything. I just ordered a ninja suit, I've got some awesome gloves already but the one thing I would like to upgrade is my goggles.
I've searched and searched what to get but have been unable to decide on anything specific. Don't know if I should go Dragon, Oakley, Smith, etc. I don't know what color or tint the goggles need to be. The goggles I have are Smith Amber lenses and I have used them for about 3 years.
I need advice on a great pair of goggles. What tint/color do I get that is pretty universal? What brand? Any specific style? I do wear a helmet so they need to be able to fit on my face with a helmet.
Here is a decent thread that will help you get started. I know it doesn't answer all your questions, but it will give you some manufacturers and models to look at as well as some potential technical advice.
