Giro, no I'm not on about your 90 bucks every two weeks for you jobless users. I'm on about Giro as in the helmet people, pronounced "Geero / Jeero".
Well news is they are now into the goggle market, check their latest offerings out...Giro goggles are new to me but not to Giro. Word on the slopes is they have been knocking up goggles for the past few snow seasons.
Goggle Bag Included
Based originally on their “Score” snow model, they made some refinements that make these ideal for us downhillers. We all know getting a pair of goggles to sit right on your boat race (face) is key and with all the different sizes and shapes that lids come in these days from all the manufacturers, life can be hard.
Detach the hinges and wash your strap. Just don't pop them in the tumble dryer
That's why Giro have gone one step further than the guys at Fox/Oakley and added a hinge on those external side strap supports. Being hinged is the clever part and they swivel onto the side of your helmet for that perfect fit. Meaning the goggles can sit exactly on your nose and against your slap head.
Adjustable Hinge Closed
I only run TLD Moto-X lids and know only to well, first hand infact that some goggles won't sit right in a wide open MX lid. You always find the MTB lids have a narrower opening so visa versa with the MX goggles. This is where you fussy people can be spot on with these Giro Score MTB Goggles.
Adjustable Hinge Open
: White or Matt Black frame with Clear 83% VLT or Grey 41% VLT lens option
: True Sight technology eliminates visual distortions in the lenses that can cause objects to shift in view, meaning a clear, accurate vision in peripheral - areas as well as straight ahead! That's what corporate man says. I say you can see crystal clear outta them and you get tear-off posts and the anti-fog is second to none.
-As with all quality goggles these come with an Anti-slip silicone backed strap for added grip against the back of your helmet.
On my TLD Moto-X Lid
-After market lenses available
: Clear or Grey and both come with posts and are anti-fog.
-Tear-offs? Yes of course, also available in packs of 10.
