WTF is up with the goggle pricing? I've been out of the game for some time, cars, enduro/motocross and sportbikes have drained my funds for a few years, but am back now...and one thing has struck me...
WTF is it with people and paying 220 bucks for something like the Oakley Airbrakes?
I've raced both enduro and motocross, which puts as much strain on a set of goggles as you can in terms of wear, sweat and fogging up, and even the simplest Scott goggles (double lense of course) took it well.
But it seems as if you enter the alpine world, something happens, you need unobtanium (I'm not kidding) and "nasa" space tech mixed into the sales adverts to sucker people into forking out for something that costs what, 5 bucks, tops, including packaging to manufacture?
Really...and to make it worse, it seems as if it's become sort of a status thing now, everyone knows what a set of dragons cost...so they will sell, purely based on the fact that they're expensive.
It's just plastic, rubber and some colored lexan sheets...
