Oakley O-Frame® 2.0 MTB Goggles review

Today we have a bit of a kit review post. When I am looking for mountain biking kit to buy I am always surprised by the lack of real reviews. So I thought I would start doing review posts on this site. Today I have Oakleys O-Frame 2.0 MTB goggles. I bought my Oakley O-frame 2.0's from Oakley direct. Which if I am completely honesty was a bit weird. The first thing I noticed is it is actually quite hard to find the MTB goggles on their site? Why is this? I have no idea. you seem to have to search MTB in their search bar. 

 Anyways I was looking for a new set of goggles to go with my New Troy lee designs helmet. If you would like a review of that to let me know. 

I really wanted a pink pair to match my helmet but this was an impossible task after numerous hours searching the internet and emails to different companies it looks like a pink matching google to this helmet was not going to happen. I have never known anyone who has Oakley O-frames 2.0 Mtb goggles so this kinda made me decide to buy them. Oakley sponsors some of the worlds best riders so surely they would have the best googles so I thought I would give them a try. 

As you can see I went for the Oakley O-Frame® 2.0 MTB Goggles in Black Gunmetal /Dark Grey. There are four colour combos to choose from.  I have popped in lots of photos on this review as I really want to show you these goggles. These are currently £40.80 with free postage and packing direct from Oakley. 

I had a few reservations about these goggles but, to be honest, I have them about all goggles. I have a really small head and face. I am an extra small in helmets and I am a firm member of the pea head club But these looked like this would match my helmet and I love My Oakley Cycling glasses I have so thought why not. 

What Oakley says about the Googles 
As an evolution of the legendary O Frame® goggle, the O Frame® 2.0 PRO family has Oakley DNA pumping through every vein. The O Frame® 2.0 PRO MTB extends the O Frame® 2.0 PRO style and performance to a mid-sized fit, but there is nothing medium about it. The large lens with streamlined frame geometry expands peripheral view in every direction. 
 High Definition Optics®Oakley’s patented High Definition Optics® (HDO®) eliminates distortion to give you clearer, sharper, and more accurate vision.

First thing I noticed when they arrived was the extra lense. This is a huge bonus as I was going to order another one. Let's face it is biker go through lenses pretty quick. Well, I do up here in highlands. There is a lot of bad weather in Nevis range and this, in turn, makes me wear my goggles in all conditions and they get scratched a lot. Huge bonus there. I have normally ridden with 100% youth googles. 

The quality of The Oakley O-Frame® 2.0 MTB Goggles really is amazing. Everything just feels Lux. The fleece lining of the goggle is so nice to wear and it really is super comfortable. The design is really nice it envelopes your face and feels super secure without making you feel squashed. If you have worn goggles you will know what I mean here. The straps have rubber gripper meaning no more having to adjust your goggles once the Oakley O-Frame® 2.0 MTB Goggles are on they are on and not going anywhere. I have rattled down Fort William downhill and these do not move. 

We need to take a minute for the vents on Oakley O-Frame® 2.0 MTB Goggles. They are incredible. I mostly ride Fort William we get Rain in very direction. I have struggled in the past with lens fogging. I mean it is to be expected with what I do and the conditions I ride right? Well, I am happy to say I am yet to have these fog up on me during a run. The ventilation on Oakley O-Frame® 2.0 MTB Goggles are designed to perfection. The air appears to be able to keep the lens fog-free no matter what the conditions. This for me is the best part of the googles. 

I have no hesitation in recommending these goggles to you. They really are worth the £40 price tag. To be honest I would be happy if they were double the price. They are the best goggles I have ever had and will be buying them again. 

I have popped in a few more photos for you to have a good look at these goggles for yourself. 
Dont forget you can ask me any question you may have I am always happy to help.
