I need to get new goggles over the summer. I mainly ride in resorts, and right now I have a goggle with clear lens for night riding and a beat up $20 pair of bolle reflective goggles for day riding. Many people have recommended me to get the Smith i/o, but I don't want to drop $150 on a pair of goggles that I am not fully using. Would it be better to buy the goggles that fit best when I try them on at the resort even if they don't have replaceable lens? If this makes any different, I will probably buy the goggles online because resort shops are probably overpriced.
Also note: The shop only stocks Anon Scott, and other brands. it DOES NOT stock Smith, Dragon, or Electric.
Not sure what you mean by not fully using the io's, if you got those you would have day and night covered. If you're 100 per cent happy with your clear lens goggles for night and overcast weather then get a pair of goggles with a dark lens for bright days at the price you want to spend. Spring is coming so discounts will happen in the shops.
i don't know how deep your pockets are but i absolutely LOVE my Oakley Airbrakes. Yes they are $230 bucks but they come with two different lenses and with the switch out feature, you are never putting your paws on the actual lens. I prefer 1 pair of goggles with different lenses.... less crap i need to bring with me.
