Cheers man, I'm really pleased with them. Just about to go on a ride too but I was amazed at the comfort compared to the Accuri's on the first try, a very light even pressure on the face. I loved the Accuri and they are comfy but these are considerably better, for twice the price im glad they are lol The FOV is larger too, so all round winners for me. The Orange frame is also ALOT brighter in person, its a true fluorescent, the same as the accents on the 100% Aircraft chin and peak-the pics don't really do it justice. Looks sweet imo.

ha thanks. It's mostly black riding gear to be honest. Always been attracted to the stealthy look. No DH pyjamas here..though I like the fluro TLD Air gloves. There's some pics on my page Salute

Whats everyone think of the ixs xact full face for DH? Fit is awesome, nice and light but is it suitable for whistler riding and full on DH?

Hi, I would like to buy some new goggles and tought the Scott Prospect would be a great option because of the immense view. Though I do have some questions to be answered:
- Will these fit my Fox Rampage Pro Carbon medium?
- Would these also be suited for enduro and a bit more agrresive trail riding? Going to use it for DH also but that shouldn't cause a problem. Because it's a MX goggle I don't know if riding trails that are mostly going down and still some ups would cause difficulties. The area around my eyes I do not want to be super sweaty and thereby have a goggle that fogs up. It doesn't really bother me if they don't fit a half-face helmet.

If you have experience with these please share!

Cannot comment on the Fox helmet compatibility but the Prospect is an EXCELLENT goggle. By far the most comfortable I have worn. Very light and I've had no issues to date with fogging. They exert a very light pressure on the face and the nose is unobstructed. Obviously, YMMV with regards to face shape and preferences, but the goggle is exceptionally high quality, and comes with a clear spare lense and is very easy to swap out. I use it for DH/Freeride and found ventilation excellent so far. Would absolutely recommend them.

It's definitely a downhill helmet. Haha when I'm pinning it my heads cold. But it's warm when I stop haha.
But I like it so far.
