Default Changing lenses in crowbars?

I've never done this as I usually just buy new goggles even though I've received extra lenses with many of my goggles upon purchase.

I just don't want to mess anything up when I remove the original lens, so does anyone know of any online instructions for this?

Also, do the goggles still function well after changing the lenses?

Thanks peeps.

Nice! Good look ZOOM!

Anyone who has done this, will they work as well?

What are you worried about? The only thing you might screw up is not putting the lens in correctly and having it fall out or hang open while you ride.

Goggles are not air tight, so you don't have to hermetically seal the lens to the face of the goggle frame.

Personally, switching out lenses while on the slopes is a pain. I keep a spare set of goggles with a clear/high visibility lens in my bag so that I can just switch goggles on the fly if I have to.

I don't have an extra lens for the Crowbars and I'm going to buy one, so I wanted to be sure the functionality was just as good as the original before the purchase... because otherwise I'd just buy another pair of goggles.

I also just switch out goggles when riding rather than changing lenses... actually had to do it Monday after ducking a rope and falling into powder that was well over my head... what an awesome day that was!
