Goggles with replaceable lenses

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi,

Fancy goggles with rapid replaceable lens system. Anyone know where I can get a list of what models have this.

Recommendations also welcome.

Cheers Steve.

How rapid? My Oakley A Frames take about 20 seconds to swap around.

might be worth considering polarised/photochromatic lenses, less faffing about. bolle and poc do them.

Smith I/O range.

On my second pair now, as both lenses in my first pair got too scratched (after a lot of abuse!) and it was cheaper to get a whole new set (Sportspursuit) than replace just the lenses. Went for exactly the same one again, no hesitation. I've changed the lenses (only twice!) on a chairlift, while wearing gloves, when conditions dictated.

Oakley Airbrakes. I saw some on sale on eyewearoutlet for about £80 with 2 lenses a week or so ago. There might be some left.

I'm pretty pleases with the Decathlon Mid Bones goggles, not strictly rapid replacable, but takes less than 30 seconds to change. £33 with S2 lenase and S1/S3 lenses currently available for £6 each. Also OTG which was a pleasnt surprise.

I was seriously considering the Summit Worldwide goggles but then my OH bought me Bolle Modulators. The Summit goggles were a cheaper option over the Anon M2 goggles which I was really impressed with. Both the frameless look and magnetic lenses looked great but too expensive... Summit appear to offer almost the same.

20 seconds is more than fine. I just want something I can swap out when the light goes flat, without resorting to screwdrivers or some such like.

I was hoping there might be a goggles seller online that has a 'replaceable lenses' filter.


Cheers

Steve.

Just took delivery of my Summit Evolve Magnetic, (10 as opposed to 8 on the Oakleys, just saying!) sale price £74.95

The quality is quite astounding and the packaging (both box etc and zipped carry case) something to behold! and the low light spare lens is included

These are the mutts nuts snowHead snowHead snowHead

Interesting so many can change lenses so fast.
I'm obviously very cack-handed: even with the fancy Oakley Airbrakes it took me well over a minute.
So i have 2 pairs of googles rolling eyes

Anon Magna Tech....The best goggles I have ever owned. So easy-I change the lens with the goggles still on my face! They just click in and out. Mr P has the M1 and I have the WM1.
