Great Peripheral Vision Goggles w/ Helmet.. help please

Hey guys lots of talk about goggles, styles and colors are not really my concern only thing I'm looking at is best peripheral vision, anyone that has tried on or used at least 2 of these and can help me narrow it down to at most 4 would be greatly appreciated if need be I will order all 4 then pick the best one that fits.

Take into consideration that I need these to fit with my Giro 10 helmet. Recently had the I/Ox and they were a no go with the helmet too big.

I got this list together after checking out a bunch of the forum topics, read a good amount of reviews and also looked at the overall frame size. Best peripheral vision main priority here also if anyone had a trouble with anyone of them like fogging up, easily broke, cheap construction, just a rip off price wise please let me know

any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated I need to narrow this damn list down please.

Well you talking all around vision because I notice that a lot of goggles have good side to side vision and up is ok too obviously limited with the helmet and all but the bottom is my main concern, around the nose I feel like that area is not as open as it can and the extra vents on the Splice might restrict that even more.

Your best bet is to take your helmet to a shop and see what fits best. I bought a pair of Electric EG2 goggles from Amazon and it was not compatible with my old helmet. I ended up picking up a Ride duster helmet for it.

Yeah the problem is selection over here sucks, the stores don't stock mutliple goggles and if they do its like 2 pairs of the top end 150$+ goggles and then your pressured to buy its just a pain in the ass.

I rather buy 4 or so check them out and make a decision.

I have the Quiksilver Hubble T-Rice edition. They are amazing. Awesome peripheral vision, super comfy, and looks sick as fuck haha. Straps are really adjustable as well I haven't heard of it having issues with helmets, so that might need to be researched to find out a little more. They are more pricey than average, but I also got the '12 edition at the end of the season so I got em for $111

Helmet fit is hard to gauge because of how many different helmet/goggle combinations there are, not to mention different helmet sizes. As far as peripheral vision goes, obviously you want something with a spherical lens, and bigger the better I suppose. Your list seems good so far, although might want to checkout the Smith I/O too. Not the largest in size, but the design allows for good peripheral since there is no protruding frame.

Unfortunately no, they arent interchangable. That is like the one and only negative thing I have heard about them. I went with the amber chrome lens(red). They're polarized so it will work great on blue bird days, and I've worn them in the house where its obviously a lot more dim, and you still get great vision. I tried on the blue lenses, but I don't generally like the blue filter in general. I liked the contrast the amber lens gives

I agree, I like the Amber had em on my I/O and the color was sweet, it sucks they aren't interchangeable but if the peripheral vision rocks it's worth it, just like the Giro Onset suppose to have unbelievable peripheral vision and of course not interchangeable :-/
