Had a buddy like you. Replaced his a-frame lenses 2 or 3x within 2 seasons of just getting them, and then bam, they could easily pop out of his frame after a nice crashy in the snowy. Told him to just get a pair of legit interchangeables or get a 2nd pair of A-frames for cloudy days since his first were polarized fire iridium. He fd with expensive chit.

I don't know how many lenses you have changed on an A-Frame... it can be done nonetheless, so I agree with you, but eventually those plastic oakley frames will be toast. The frames are made for the lens manufacture put in only.

Expensive chit to be messin' with

Btw, Vodka on the rocks... no mixer.

^^^Pretty sure this is the real issue. Most goggles are doubled lens - and the interior lens is always the anti-fog which generally/supposedly you aren't even supposed to touch once.

I don't know what the case is tho with those particular Electrics. I just wear Oakley A-Frames, and I know the interior lens is the most important - if I cracked that, I would get a new pair no doubt. I know Oakley got bought out recently, so I don't know if there is any new tech out these days that they use or other co's, where you could actually fix a cracked lens.

Some of these goggles you can actually put in a new lens even tho they are not interchangeable, and other pairs like the A-frames - you need a whole new goggle since the lens is made within the goggle frame.

I'd prob just get a new pair man.. good sales are going on at the outlet at evo.com

The_Hoff The goggles seemed to work well afterwards, I banged my face up pretty bad. I'm more worried about when I crash again if the inside lens breaks more and could possibly cut my eye.

Same happened to my Oakley CrowBar. Transparent scotch tape on the inside. Problem solved.
