I’m all about the six dollar bottle cage.

Randoms Round 2: New Tools, Goggles, Grips, Racks, & More - Sea Otter 2024
@korev: me either, I always thought spherical looked kinda silly and I didn’t notice any magical vision improvement.

All I can say is I’ve used a lot of d30 knee pads and I’ve always been impressed. They’re comfortable and do a good job taking impacts. And yes I even pulled out the material and hit it was a hammer to see what it was like.

@SleepingAwake: definitely fashion. Spherical seems weird on dirt for sure.

@sb666: have you used the giant glasses with lenses as big as a goggle? I’m talking the pretty much hybrid glass/goggle options. Some of them even have foam. They’re pretty dang good with dust compared to an mtb goggle with massive vent holes.

I think that’s just perception brought on mostly by fashion trends. The snow industry has shifted away from spherical over the last couple years and back to cylindrical, as far as I can tell mostly to make people feel like they need something new and different. If there is a functional factor, I would guess cylindrical is cheaper to use in the magnetic swappable systems on a lot of snow goggles, and in the dirt, the lenses are usually cheap and simple because they are often single layer and get trashed so quickly. If there’s a benefit to spherical on the snow, it should apply on the trail too, no? But having gone back and forth between the two over the seasons, I don’t find a meaningful difference. Wow, kudos to you for sucking me into a goggle analysis so early on a Saturday morning!
