What about some anti fog spray?
Ehh, id rather just update my goggles, mine are about 2 year old now, plus the new frameless tech is nice to have.
I've never used the TurboFan, but from everyone I know who has, they work. Fogging is a non-issue. I don't think they really weigh any more than regular goggles either. If you wear glasses though, make sure you look for a OTG goggle.
According to smith optics website the iox and iox turbo fan are listed under the OTG category.
I had a lot of fogging issues with my I/Os (I overheat like crazy and like to wear a facemask up to my goggles, plus I don't think wearing a helmet helps with proper venting from the goggles) I got mad and bought the I/OX turbo fan goggles around X-Mas and I love them.
First off the I/OX just by itself is wayyyyyy better at not fogging up, this alone might do the trick and you might not need the fan. The fan isn't noticable when you ride, dead silent. If you don't wear a helmet, you might notice the battery pack, with a helmet you don't notice it at all. Because of the battery pack, you have to wear the goggles over the helmet. The batteries are AAA and last well when the weather is decent but -20C days the batteries would stop working from the cold and I would have to switch them out with warmer ones from an inside pocket. The fan works ok at clearing the goggles when they start to fog, but they could be a lot better. On most days i don't need the fan at all and the nice thing is that you can pop the battery pack off in a second and throw it in your pocket and then they look and act just like regular I/OXs.
One of my favorite hills has a lot of temp inversions and last year every day I spent there i would have fogging issues that made it almost impossible to see or ride with the goggles on, but it's always pow days there and you need goggles to keep the snow out of your eyes. This year I've spent 2 days at that hill now with these goggles and can finally ride all day with clear vision.... That alone is worth it to me.
The I/OXs are awesome in my opinion, the turbo fan.... Hmmmmm, just average. Do I use the fan?? Yeah I do. Would I recommend the turbo fan model to others? Not sure. It's a lot more cash and unless you're like me and really really hate fogging up, then the I/OXs might be good enough. I just lost all patience with fogging and decided to go all out. Do I regret the turbo fan model? Not at all.... Being able to see clearly and fully enjoy the few pow days we have, makes all the difference to me.
Awsome info, good to hear you have positive experience with them. I too absolutely hate fogging. Normaly i can just lift my goggles untill i start au run but this weekend we had moments of sleet and nice strong gusts and it was really shitty to have to get pelted by sleet becuase my goggles were fogging.
Im thinking the turbo fans might be beneficial if say my glasses started to fog up(had that happen once).
Anyways thanks for the repsonses keep them coming, im looking for any experiences good or bad.
