Can anyone tell me about Airblaster goggles?

They are cheap and look pretty good. Mirrored finish as well. Thoughts?

Suck, waist of money. I think its more of a fashion statement truthfully. While there is worse then these, there are def better ones out there.

Similar to Airblaster and about the same price are Ashbury. I didn't have any problems with mine all last year.

no. looking cool is just one of the benefits. ive never had fog, and the flexy frame conforms to your face. they're extremely conformable and the big frame has a huge field of vision. the one problem is the chrome wears off if you fall on them too much. but a the new "baker lens" just came out, so they switched the double lens positioning so the chrome can't be scuffed. they're amazing really.

which is why they came out with the new lens! although im not sure if it's the default lens that comes with new goggles. come to think of it my friend had a pair of dxs before he got some airblaster goggles, and he got them because his dx goggles got so scratched up. we both had dragons before this, now i swear by them.

I KNOW!!!!!! Just on principle I plan to faceplant at least 4 times a day...


If you're buying more durable goggles because of faceplants, I think your focusing on the wrong thing... Just sayin...
