I have been wearing the Fox Main Shard Goggles for over a season now. I bought them because they look great and felt comfortable when I tried them on. What I was looking to get out of them is a pair of goggles that were fog-proof and scratch-resistant because these were a couple of problems with my older motocross goggles. A few more things that I look for in goggles is comfort, fit, and style.
I don’t want to buy goggles that aren’t comfortable, and I don’t think you do either. That’s why I’m here so I can tell you whether these goggles are good or not before you go waste your money. When I first put the Fox Main Shard Goggles on they felt pretty much perfect, but I didn’t just base it off of that because I didn’t have my helmet on and I wasn’t riding with them. On my first race with the Main Goggles on I loved them. They were just as comfortable as when I tried them on at the store.
I haven’t used that many pairs of goggles, but I can definitely say that the Fox Shard goggles have the best fit on my face. The padding is so soft, yet thick, that it basically molds to my face. I was surprised how well these goggles fit for how cheap they were. I want to test other brands of goggles to see how they compare, but I would certainly buy the Fox Main Shard goggles again.
The lens is probably the most important part of goggles. I don’t know exactly what to look for in a goggle lens, but I did know that I wanted it to have an anti-fogging feature and to be scratch-resistant. When I looked at the Fox Main goggles it said that it had both features, which is the main reason why I got them, and to this day I’m glad I did. When I was racing in 40 degree weather, in which my old goggles would totally fog up at the starting gate, these goggles stopped the fog immediately. I’m not frustrated before the gate is about to drop anymore because I can keep my goggles on without having to wipe the fog away. As for being scratch-resistant, I usually wear tear-offs with them, but the lens still doesn’t have a scratch on it. So, I can safely say that I am happy about these Fox Main lens.
The style and graphics of the goggles don’t necessarily determine what pair I buy, but it’s nice to have goggles that look cool. Fox always makes great looking gear, and the Shard goggles are a good example of this. I really like the looks of these goggles, and the colors don’t fade very easily. They have the style of a $100 pair of goggles, but are at an entry level price.
The Fox Main Shard Goggles are an excellent buy and I would recommend them to any rider that want comfortable, and stylish goggles that fit well at a bargain price. I have yet to this day learned how to adjust the fit of the goggles though, but I don’t really need to because they fit me fine out of the box. That is the only real complaint I have about these goggles. I might read the manual though if I really need to adjust the size of them.
and ride safe!
