Goggle fogging problem!
 
I ALWAYS have problems with my goggles fogging. I started out with some cheap, Scott goggles. I think they were about $25. I recently upgraded to some Smith I/O goggles. The visibility is awesome. But they are fogging too. I bought some Cat Crap to put in them and have tried other anti-fog stuff to no avail. Finally, I realized that the problem may be my helmet. I have a Giro helmet. I don't know which one. I bought it at Sports Authority a couple years ago. I noticed that the top of my goggles fit perfectly against the front rim of my helmet. The Smith I/O goggles vent through the top. I'm guessing that the helmet is preventing the moisture from escaping. I was looking at getting a Smith helmet. Do they have vents in the front rim that would allow the moisture to escape from my goggles? I can't find any in the local area in my size. I'll have to order one. Thoughts?

The only time my I/O's fog is when I am strapping in and looking at the ground which puts sends my breath directly on the lenses, but it clears up instantly. Out of all the goggles I have owned the I/O's are the only ones that don't fog for me and I wear a helmet that sits very close to the top of my goggles so there is no gaper gap. Are you wearing a face mask of any kind?

Maybe your helmet is lacking adequate venting. Add some to your goggles by cutting some 1/4" squares of Styrofoam and superglue them to the top of your goggles for a bit of breathing room. However, beware of appearing less than steezy.

Good point. I'm very hot natured and the only time I have issues with goggle fogging is when I'm doing heavy hiking or if I have a facemask covering my nose.

It is most definitely the inside of the goggles that is fogging. The I/O goggles vent through the top, behind the lens. There is no room between the goggles and the helmet. The helmet is all styrofoam. Maybe, I'll just quit being a pussy and ride with a beanie instead!

Or you can be even cooler and just wear your fucking helmet you dummy.

Smokehaus 01-22-2012 11:53 PM

And I am currently holding my I/Os, and they not only vent from the top, but from the bottom and the sides.

Also are you positive that you have lens installed correctly?

Yeah, I doubt I'll give up a helmet. I am not that good! :D My goggles always tend to fog towards the top. That's what makes me think my current helmet is the problem. Also, I'm absolutely certain that I have the lens installed correctly. Pretty easy with these goggles.
