Hi

On my last ride I had some mud enter my eyes. It got under my glasses, so I guess my glasses don't always work (OK, there's no good for any situation gadget). Also, sometimes when I'm in a group ride and coming down fast, there's a lot of dust, which sometimes get into my eyes.

I was wondering if a downhill goggles would help me. Are they too hot to wear? Or unconfortable?

Thanks

I sweat a lot and use to wear glasses. On the inside and the outside you would have to wipe them constantly to get the dust out. Sweat drops would get on the lenses too.

Goggles keep the sweat away from your eyes and no dust...repeat no dust. If you ride trails you will love goggles

Googles for XC is overkill. I wear sunglasses when i ride xc and occasionally I'll get some dust/mud/water in my eye. its part of mountain biking. you'll sweat to death in goggles.
depends on the trail...get well ventilated goggles

All im saying is doing a climb on a 90 degree day with goggles on because your afraid of getting dust in your eye is a bit overkill, sometimes you just gotta take the good with the bad in mountain biking. This isnt exactly golf ;)
use them on the way down not up

Okay, is this SMT just a tool or what. Well ventilated goggles, not well ventilated goggles, I don't give a sh**, wearing goggles for xc riding because you get mud and dust in your eyes makes you a complete p**sy...please tell me this fool is just BSing because if he's not he must be the biggest joke on this forum. I suppose you need full body armor to launch off of 6" curbs too... for God's sake, no wonder bmxers make fun of us... jacka**

Full body armour starts at 6 1/4 inches...didn't you get the memo :p :p

I don't ride uphill. I ride downhill...on the occaison I ride up, I don't wear my goggles or helmet. When I get ready to desend that is when I put it on....Well ventilated goggles was a joke
