Here is what sucks about these goggles. You can only get them with either black iridium, or fire iridium. Both of those lenses are for bright sunny days only. So basically these $600 googles are useless for overcast, snowing, or night riding.

Also after scouring the interwebs there is no confirmed info that the on board screen will allow you to connect and view a camera device like go pro. Basically as far as I can tell its only a rumor.

For now you are better off downloading the Alpine Pro app which tracks all the stats the airwave does and only costs 2 or 3 bucks.

My review of this thing is that its a great idea with shitty implementation. Fail.

Oh...and you have only two frame choices...black and something shaun white would wear.
