Strengths:    Good Field of Vision
Scratch Resistant Lens
Cheap


Weaknesses:    Thin, uncomfortable foam
they fog anytime they arent moving (no antifog coating)
Lens ejected during a big crash on Freight Train at Whistler


Bottom Line:   
At first I liked this goggle because it had a huge viewing window, was cheap, and didn't scratch very easy. Then after a ride or two, I noticed that this goggle fogs like mad as soon as you stop riding and the thin foam gets uncomfy and packs down when it gets wet or sweaty. Then, when I crashed on Freight Train at Whistler a few days ago, the lens ejected from the goggle. My friends went back and searched for it for 10-15 minutes and still couldn't find it. What good is protective eyewear if the lens ejects during a crash!?! I am buying some Scott goggles now. There is no way that I would ever use these again!

Strengths:    Don't fog at all, feel great, don't slide around on the helmet, good price, great looks.

Weaknesses:    Haven't found any yet.

Bottom Line:   
Great goggles from Rockgardn. They look good and they feel even better. The periphery isn't distorted at all and the lenses are very clear. Buy a couple pair, they're at a great price.

Strengths:    Hard to fog, very wide periphery, super clear lens, clean looks, very good price.

Weaknesses:    The foam is slightly harder than on my previous Oakleys but it wasn't a big deal.

Bottom Line:   
Very good goggles at a very good price. The quality and performance are better in most aspects compared to my old Oakleys, plus these cost almost half the price. Another great Rockgardn product.

Strengths:    I find the GDX goggles to be lightweight and super comfortable. They fit well in my Troy Lee D2 helmet. They also have a great field of vision and don't crowd the periphery. Because of that, they don't contribute to the tunnel vision effect that a lot of other goggles can produce. The goggles also come in a good variety of colors (I have Blue and Black) and have clear lenses or reflective tinted lenses. They also have a separable straps that are easy to remove for cleaning. Finally, they have a good price so you can grab a few pair-one for Saturday practice and another for Sunday racing.

Weaknesses:    The GDX lenses have a little bit of distortion on the extreme left and right periphery. However, I only notice it when I am wiping off my lenses, but never when riding.

Bottom Line:   
The Rockgardn GDX goggle is a good looking, well performing goggle at a competitive price point. They are well worth a try. I know I will be buying a few more.
