I wear mine over as well. It seems silly to wear them under.

I don't know how well the helmet will fit if you put your goggles under it.

Haha is this a real thing? Over, always, which is how it was designed to work.

I personally cant get it to work because of my head shape. I have a long head and helmets barely fit me in general. Especially cause I have Smith I/O gogs and they have that huge plastic clip in the back which digs into the back of my head. Idk how people fit a beanie under the helmet too.

buy a helmet a size too big (which renders it pointless) then loosen all the straps to the max they can go (to increase the uselessness), then wa'la you can look like an x-games rider. (unless they are sponsored by oakley it seems).

Under for me..

Mostly because my helmet is just a slightly better fit with a thin beanie or balaclava on.

But I also prefer the lower profile look of no ear pads.

And that I can take the helmet off/on without needing to faff with the goggles.

Main disadvantage is not being able to lift the googles up onto your head without removing the helmet.

But thats outweighed by the advantages (for me).

Some of you guys are just haters! I didnt know so much 'logic' had to go into where you put your goggles I like my strap under my helmet because it looks better to me and i dont notice much difference in comfort. I dont spend much time riding without goggles so I dont need to put them up top many times, they can just hang around my neck for a bit instead.
