VonZipper Try our Fishbowl and El Kabong goggles... They both fit like a glove with a helmet and keep the fog away!!

lisevolution That one and the same rebranded Scott one were the only aftermarket fans I could find when I looked a couple of years ago. There may be others but that would probably fit your Zeal's. The only goggles I had issues with them fitting in were my Vonzipper Feenom's and it was because of the curvature or lack there of in the goggle that made it a difficult fit. It did fit just not perfectly.

NSXRguy That aftermarket fan is very interesting. Is there another company that has a similar design? I currently have the smith prophey turbo fan and it is the only goggle so far thar helps my glasses from fogging

I need an aftermarket solution when i receive my zeal z3.....

lisevolution If you get the I/O's I would almost guarantee you wouldn't need to spend the money on the Turbofan model. The Regular I/OX or I/O probably won't fog on you either. They designed the lens so that moisture can breathe through it. That's why I haven't had any issues since switching to them.

I'm telling you though, check out that aftermarket fan I mentioned. It's really a solid alternative.

If you ever watch one of my video's I'm constantly standing, moving, then dropping the goggles onto my face. In fact they're really only on when I'm moving!

For what it's worth my low light goggles are $40 smiths with no fancy tech in them at all...
I might try this, I did do if a bit on monday at whistler cause it was a dry day and I didn't have to worry about moisture on my helmet making them fog. wasn't a too bad of a day as far as fogging. Maybe that is the secret for us hot heads.

I would just be worried it would make it worse on a wet or snowy day where the helmet is wet.

I do the same thing when I feel over heated too. As long as they are on your helmet and not on your forehead or beanie. I let my face cool off, wipe my sweat away and I'm good for a while. I always put them on my helmet in a gondola. If it's really cold and they are moist, they will freeze instantly though so don't do it on really cold days while outside/exposed to cold ass temps.

Argo I have the same problem with every goggle. I have just never tried the iox turbo fan other than in a shop.... I just don't wanna give up my peripheral vision now.... I use eg2 goggles now and only have fogging issues when waiting up for slow riders, waiting in long lift lines or hiking. I have freezing issues if it's under about 5F. I wnow just carry an extra pair or an extra lens on days I know it is gonna happen. I also took a piece of foam out of the top of my goggle frames and that helps moisture escape faster.

I have found that if I leave my goggles on my helmet with my wet gloves in the helmet, the fog more often. I have tried anti fog shit but never cat crap, it works for a very short time...

My son is the same way too.... Fogs up anything. He wears eg2.5. He got some free air brakes afterbwinning an event and they fogged up on him too. He wore them once and put them back in the box. He likes the electrics a lot better.

Smith iox is the only thing we would switch too just for the turbo fan. Just needs a little less blind spots.
