What are you guys using for goggles, and are you putting anything on them to keep them from fogging up? I have a cheap pair of Answer goggles, they fog up in no time once I stop riding, when I start moving, the fog slowly goes away. My friend bought new Scott High Voltage goggles, and they fog up too, not as quickly, but they still fog up. Then I read a trick about putting soap on the lens, letting it dry and then wiping it off.. that helped, but still once I stopped for about 20 seconds, the fog started to appear. I just saw Smith Turbo Cam goggles with a fan in them, but at $190 I'm not sure if I want to drop that much cash on them.. anyone got any ideas? Thanks in advance.

We usually ride in a wide range of terrain.. woods, sand, jumps, whoops, rocky, top end, wheelies, etc.. I definately put a lot of effort into my riding, so i sweat a good amount too.

aslong as you keep moving they should'nt fog up, and if you stop for a short amount of time take them away from your face to keep fog from building up, theres many tricks to keep them from not fogging, soap is one of them, i never have tried any of the tricks, considering i never have a problem with my goggles.......in rockymountain atv they have goggles that have a little battery opperated fan on them to keep them from fogging they are like 100 bux tho...

Get the Scott Hig Voltage Thermal Cross goggle. They are like the Turbo Flow's but they have the cool frame design. If you wanna know where to get some email me and I will tell you where to go for a good deal.

Not to sound stupid but it does make a lil bit of a diff, check to make sure all your vents are fully open on your helmet. You can buy some stuff at the snowmobile shops for the lenses, i cant remember what it is called though, if its fairly cold you can try a double lense.

I know this sounds grosss but it works, , , spit in the inside, then rub it in and they will not fog up on you. I do that on my SCBA mask and it works

I actually have been using some anti-fog, i think Rain-X made it... but its been working "OK".. Still, if i forget to take the goggles off if i stop for a little while, they will fog up, but its better that how it was.. i'll try the spitting next. :o)

I wear Oakley goggles with a frame designed to be worn over glasses. I've yet to have them fog up on me. Only if I should come into a warm area from very cold weather will they fog,but I don't keep them on if I stay indoors for any lenght of time. The lense of the goggles is alittle further from my face,maybe thats why I don't have a problem. Winter weather here in Wisconsin can be pretty extreme! Also,Scott makes a no-fog cloth. It's made of flannel and is impregnated with a no-fog solution. You just wipe your lense with the cloth,works quite well. That's what my friend uses.

You should try whearing ski or snowboard goggles. They sell clear ones that dont seem to fog. I think oakley makes a pair i know spy and gragon do too. There not expensive only like $30-40.

March 2002 Dirt Wheels has a review on a set of ProGrip goggles that are anti-fog with a light sensitive lense that darkens in the sun for about $40. According to the article they said they "couldn't get them to fog up under any conditions". Another quote: "We are comfortable saying these are the best goggles on the market bar none." Pretty strong endorsement. I know my Oakley L frames fog up on occasion, wheather it's hot or cold out.

try a quick release for your gogles, this way when u stop you can pull them off "quickly" so they dont fog up.

works for me
