The stack vent on the Giro makes all the difference for me. My goggles never fog, my glasses are the challenge, and they just don't fog in this helmet.

I don't know if any other helmets do something similar.

If you've got an REI near you, buy a giro, try it, if it doesn't cut it, return it. They're awesome like that.

I have the same problem with every goggle. I have just never tried the iox turbo fan other than in a shop.... I just don't wanna give up my peripheral vision now.... I use eg2 goggles now and only have fogging issues when waiting up for slow riders, waiting in long lift lines or hiking. I have freezing issues if it's under about 5F. I wnow just carry an extra pair or an extra lens on days I know it is gonna happen. I also took a piece of foam out of the top of my goggle frames and that helps moisture escape faster.

I have found that if I leave my goggles on my helmet with my wet gloves in the helmet, the fog more often. I have tried anti fog shit but never cat crap, it works for a very short time...

My son is the same way too.... Fogs up anything. He wears eg2.5. He got some free air brakes afterbwinning an event and they fogged up on him too. He wore them once and put them back in the box. He likes the electrics a lot better.

Smith iox is the only thing we would switch too just for the turbo fan. Just needs a little less blind spots.

Despite the fact that everyone tells you to leave them on your face all day, I find the only way to keep mine from not fogging when I'm working up a sweat in the trees, is to lift them onto my helmet when I stop for a rest. I also lift them up on the lift usually for the first half of the ride...

If you ever watch one of my video's I'm constantly standing, moving, then dropping the goggles onto my face. In fact they're really only on when I'm moving!

For what it's worth my low light goggles are $40 smiths with no fancy tech in them at all...

I do the same thing when I feel over heated too. As long as they are on your helmet and not on your forehead or beanie. I let my face cool off, wipe my sweat away and I'm good for a while. I always put them on my helmet in a gondola. If it's really cold and they are moist, they will freeze instantly though so don't do it on really cold days while outside/exposed to cold ass temps.

I might try this, I did do if a bit on monday at whistler cause it was a dry day and I didn't have to worry about moisture on my helmet making them fog. wasn't a too bad of a day as far as fogging. Maybe that is the secret for us hot heads.

I would just be worried it would make it worse on a wet or snowy day where the helmet is wet.

If you get the I/O's I would almost guarantee you wouldn't need to spend the money on the Turbofan model. The Regular I/OX or I/O probably won't fog on you either. They designed the lens so that moisture can breathe through it. That's why I haven't had any issues since switching to them.

I'm telling you though, check out that aftermarket fan I mentioned. It's really a solid alternative.
