Foams not softer. Baker lens. The frame is more conformable to your face than I/O's. I've had EG1.5s's, Realms, Figments, Phenoms, Feenoms, Airgoggles, and Kaleidoscopes. The only ones I didn't want to replace after a season were the Airgoggles, Kaleidoscopes, and Feenoms.

In my experience you don't need to pay $140 for Goggles. If you really need spherical look at the Drop Espis. Memory foam too which makes them more comfy than I/O's. And the whole changing lens faster thing, who actually changes their lenses all that much on the mountain? I NEVER have. Get one lens. Chrome Orange, Chrome Yellow, or Chrome Pink. Only lens you need if you're not night riding.

THREAD RESURECTION, MUHAHAHAHA

But seriously, I am thinking of getting a pair or 2 of these as i have read good things from one or two places and need some new goggles.

Any reason not to pull the trigger? Has anyone been using them recently?

Ha, wow. Me, funny.

Though I stand by the comfort of the Airgoggle and the Baker lense, if you got the moneyz get I/O's. Number one reason, the antifog coating is not a coating. Its a texture. When you need to clean the inner lens, run them under lukewarm water and your good to go.

Is the texture new for this year?

I have a pair of i/o and was looking at getting the i/ox as i have a big head. The i/o are very comfortable. I have a european nose and they fit well. Most brands i have tried make it a bit hard to breath, but the i/o and airgoggles fit well.
