How do I stop my goggles from steaming up?
I ride with goggles when its wet as I'm not keen on glasses. The problem is they keep steaming up. They are ok when just riding along and DH but when I get to a slow climb they steam up and don't clear.
I have tried neat fairy liquid but that doesn't seem to have done the job, they are better but still steamy. What else can I try that doesn't involve me buying some vented lenses.Posted 8 years agotinsyMember
I rode MX for years, when its cold and damp, but your hot and sweaty only going along fast keeps them clear, obviously bob heath visor clear is a big help, and the wipes you get from ski shops are really really good (try them first in fact), failing that, you gould drill some vent holes in your lens's yourself, if you got an old lens to try it on first might be a good idea.
Dont wear the goggle when you drill the holes. 😉Posted 8 years ago
My old goggles had a double lens with vents in the top. But they got really scratched and it was cheaper to get new goggles than lenses. They worked really well but I dont want to have to resort to them because that would make me feel like a cheap git and having a money saving fail.
These are what I had.Posted 8 years ago
TooTall its not about being rad infact if you met me you would know I am far from rad.
I wear contact lenses and when wearing glasses I always find I somehow manage to get grit or mud in my eye. Goggles prevent any ingress of dirt and this helps me enjoy my riding more. Until I cant see where Im going and hit a tree that is.
I suppose I could take the goggles off for a climb and put them back on again but that would break up the ride and piss off my riding buddies.Posted 8 years agoTooTallMember
Just curious as I also wear contacts for most of my riding. I've never had any more bother with crud in my eyes riding than in everyday life. I'm surprised you've not found an acceptable pair of glasses for riding in to help with that. I currently have a couple of pairs of Bolle safety glasses I use that barely steam up and their design has never let anything get into my eyes.

I'd say better fitting riding glasses. Good ones keep most crap out.
If you must wear googles, surely you don't need to stop to take them on/off for climbs? It's not hard to do one handed!
But the only way to stop them steaming up is to stop them getting damp. If they're dry they won't steam up. problem is if you get at all sweaty they'll get damp, and steam up. Then your only option is going fast enough for them to stay clear.
But really, better glasses.Posted 8 years ago
