Default Oakley Wisdom Helmet Strap

I have an older pair of Oakley Wisdom goggles with the hard plastic ends. From everything I have caught on-line you need to get a helmet strap to wear them with a helmet. That, and I will have a L or XL helmet and I understand the stock (non-helmet) strap is on the short side so if you have a larger helmet it will not fit.

I cannot find an Oakley Wisdom helmet strap anywhere! 100% sold out as far as I can find. If anyone has one, or an older pair of Wisdom's they want to pull their helmet strap from, I would love to have one.

Thanks,
Andrei

adjust the strap to the longest setting, it works over all three of my helmets.

Just an FYI for anyone else with the same issue. I tried to get this to work with several helmet brands but the plastic clips on the Wisdom goggles always hit the helmets (tried several brands including Smith, Red, Giro, and ProTec) and lifted away from my face. This happened even when putting the goggles on before the helmet. The strap length was not an issue even with a L or XL helmet. Just the plastic clips. Bummer.

I picked up some Smith IO's. Perfect.

Bummer for you. I have no issues with my Wisdoms. I wear a Smith Variant helmet, and use the regular, non-helmet strap on the Wisdoms just fine. Good pickup on the I/O's though. They're nice goggles.
