Alternative to goggles
Every single pair of goggles I’ve tried and returned pinch my nose so that I struggle to breath normally.
I’ve tried twice without success to trim the foam around the nose bridge without any luck.
Can anyone suggest glasses with foam protection with good eye cover as I’ve given up trying to find goggles that suit.
And no a nose job is not an option 🙂

Try a pair of the latest goggles issued to HM Armed Forces for desert use:Posted 4 years ago
Revision Bullet Ants.
I’m trying a set for general trail riding due to me having unnaturally watery eyes! Apart from some steaming up issues, seems to be like wearing Oakleys without the draught.
I got mine off Ebay for about £25CaptainFlashheartMember
Dare I suggest ‘goggles that fit’?
Well worth properly exploring, as with ski goggles. Helmet, head and goggles need to ‘work’ together properly. For example, I really wanted a pair of Splice goggles, but the Crowbars were just a waaaaay better fit (Especially on my nose).
Just a thought to throw in there…!Posted 4 years ago
I used a set of these with my ff at BPW until I lost them. I had the yellow lenses but shown clear here for sake of finding a decent PIC. Sit close to the face and have a foam pad round the back of the frame. It’s quite a hard foam but doesn’t really press against your face though. Cheap off the bay.

Some great suggestions to research later thanks.
It’s to be worn with a Spesh tactic II trail helmet but the helmet isn’t the issue.
I try the goggles on without and basically it seems like the bridge of my nose is too close to my eyes.
When I put the goggles on above/off my nose then my eyes end up at the bottom of the goggles and most of the remaining goggles are covering my forehead.
I’m living in Dublin and goggle selections in the shops over here are very poor for trying on sizes.Posted 4 years agojamiec360Member
You can get windproof gaskets for racing jackets (main difference from jawbones tbh). Also have the strap mounts on end of the arms or if you want something smaller they do the same for split jackets, think they call them windjackets.Posted 4 years ago
I got them for sailing and really comfy and removable when you don’t need as much protection.
Sunglasses + Full face = fashion fail. I suggest trying a few pairs of goggles with your helmet, they can’t all do this.
Jeez. Cos we all look so stylish every time we go out biking 😕
Not even half the fail that goggles and open face are. Enduro dude!Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Never had any luck with glasses in a fullface, it’s like the helmet scoops up the air and far more comes round the side of the glasses, much more eyewatery.
Still think the OP’s issue is bizarre though. As an experiment, do they pinch when you’ve got no helmet on? The amount of force they’d need to put on your nose to pinch like that is seriously high, the goggle strap should just be holding them against your face not mashing it! So I’m thinking, either the strap is stupendously tight or the helmet is pushing the goggles down.Posted 4 years agoscotroutesSubscriberjamiec360 wrote:

Windjackets are very good. I have some prescription ones with the transition lenses.Posted 4 years ago4130s0ulMember
may sound a little cheap but I’ve been amazed by the De-Walt safety glasses, £6 a pair at machine mart.Posted 4 years ago
very slightly yellow tinted mirrored lens gives excellent vision in and out of trees and are great for dispersing water / mud.
I have not had a problem with them steaming up as yet, but maybe i’m just not riding hard enough
