WHAT IT IS:
The Oakley Airbrake MX goggle is arguably the most technologically advanced goggle on the market today. Both the frame and the lens are designed to work together, offering up exceptional protection and vision. The lens protects against UVA, UVB, UVC, and harmful blue light, and also meets high impact standards to protect against the insane speed of rocks and debris shot from the rear tire of a 450. Dual Switchlock mechanisms on the frame hold the lens in place, while the silicone beaded strap evenly pulls the frame onto the rider’s face. The triple layer foam further adds to the comfort of the Airbrake, and is designed to wick moisture up even during the longest and hottest motos. And air scoops on the top of the frame help to push air into the helmet for cooling during those hot motos. Lastly, each Airbrake goggle comes with a pack of tear-offs and two Lens Protector Shields.
