Oakley A Frame Goggles

3170awsi5il_sl500_aa280_Oakley A Frame Goggles—A great pair of goggles for anyone from beginners to expert riders

If there is one thing that can really get in the way of hitting killer lines and cutting fresh tracks through tree hidden powder is a foggy goggle lens. Since lens fog is a performance killer, the folks at Oakley developed a three-tiered defense against fog.

Oakley devised surge ports to control airflow, formulated F-3 series anti-fog treatment, and engineered a dual lens design to reduce fog with a thermal barrier of trapped air.

For good visibility, the lenses also have 100% UV filtering, impact protection that meets all ANSI Z87.1 / ASTM F659 standards, durable urethane that stays flexible, and comfortable triple-layer polar fleece foam with moisture wicking.

These goggles have a small/medium profile that fits well with helmets and works best for smaller faces. They’re stylish and understated at the same time. The Oakley A Frames are a great pair of goggles you can wear on any day up on the mountain—no matter the conditions.
