2015 Oakley Airbrake Goggle Overview
Shop Oakley Goggles
Hey I'm Rob from skis.com and snowboards.com joined today by Josh from Oakley. Josh, thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me.
So, today we're talking about the Airbrake. This goggle has been absolutely huge for Oakley since it's been released. Really kind of changed the game for quick-change lens technology. Yeah, I mean, our Switchlock stuff has been huge for us not only in our goggles but a lot of our eyewear as well. I mean, the ease of taking a lens in-and-out is easy as about 1, 2, 3. See, just putting it right back in. And you're snapping down and that's it. So, you're getting 2 lenses, it's a little bit more of a higher price point for us but you're getting 2 lenses, you're getting a case and you're getting that Switchlock Technology. Coming with 2 lenses too is, I mean, it's awesome for this. With how easy it is, you can throw that extra lens in your pocket and as the day progresses from morning to afternoon and all of a sudden some clouds start to roll in, pop the lens, change it out real quick and you're ready to go so you don't need to have a couple different goggles, it's all right there in one frame. It's super-easy to do. Especially when you're trying to do it sort of on the fly, on a lift, you're not wanting to sort of, you know, pry all these lenses off of other models and sort of fit it in there. This QuickLock, SwitchLock Technology is extremely fast to do and you're getting a low light and then a sunshine style lens with it as well. For sure.
And then, you know, this goggle fits so great with a helmet kind of building on the Crowbar, what the Crowbar's done so well for so long with the outriggers on the goggle to really help pull those straps out. I mean, it fits a good variety of faces as well I mean, you're getting a large to medium fit but I've seen some women even wearing Airbrakes so it's not one that you have to sort of put off just because you see that large to medium fit. It does fit quite a variety of faces. For sure, and good peripherals in this too especially for something that has, you know, a quick change on the side of... I've seen goggles that have it on the side and you can see the mechanism, the things like that and with this you really can't. It's all on the outside and really doesn't block your field of view at all. And it's air tight, I mean, you're not going to get any fogging on this, I mean, we do add the F3 Anti-Fog Coating that we do on it but as far as having any kind of gaps or anything like that, you're pretty solid. For sure.
So there you have it, the Airbrake from Oakley. If you're looking for that QuickChange goggle this is such a great option if not the best option on the market. Josh, thanks for joining us. Thank you. And thank you for joining us on skis.com and snowboards.com.
