With mountain bike goggles, there are a few things to consider…

Firstly the lens. Some goggles distort your vision more than others, some have distracting internal reflections, some have wider field of vision than others, etc. Fogging is also an issue, but there’s not really a way around it – even the most expensive goggles are prone to it. Then you get onto the actual fit. Three–layered foam is fairly standard now, but some things, like having your nose restricted where the goggles are pushed down if you’re running them with an open face helmet (something that seems to be in fashion at the moment) or how well they fit your helmet shape are crucial (check before you buy if you can). Lens fitting systems, tints, tear–off…we could go on.
