Difficult to choose between motorcycle goggles and motorcycle goggles? Both solutions have their own advantages and disadvantages, depending on how you use them. In the end, the choice is up to you!
Motorcycle goggles are very popular. Lightweight, robust, practical and aesthetically pleasing, they appeal to a large number of motorcyclists. When specifically adapted to motorcycling, they fit snugly around your face, exerting no unpleasant pressure. However, before you buy them, you need to make sure that they are not ordinary sunglasses, but “special motorcycle” models. Classic sunglasses are not ideal for fitting under a helmet, as the temples are generally too long and fragile, which can deform them and injure you. What’s more, even streamlined lenses let in air and dust.
If you opt for glasses made for motorcycling, then choose good quality ones. This will ensure that you benefit from thin, flexible temples that slip easily into the helmet without causing pain. Indeed, the main risk is buying uncomfortable or painful motorcycle glasses.
Motorcycle glasses also have the advantage of being compatible with different types of lenses. If you wish, you can change the tint of your lenses at any time. You can even opt for photochromic lenses! Not all goggles have these systems.
The motorcycle goggles that have it all are the EYEFUL AKO. Of course, I’m preaching to the choir here, but take the time to discover them by clicking here.
Here again, there’s a wide range of models and styles to choose from. From cross-country masks to vintage motorcycle masks, the choice is truly vast. From an aesthetic point of view, bikers are spoilt for choice.
Unlike goggles, the brands are fixed around the motorcycle helmet. This means bikers don’t feel the fastener, which is a nice touch. If they wish, they can put the goggle on before the helmet. Whichever solution you choose, make sure you fasten and tighten the motorcycle mask correctly, so that it doesn’t slip off. This could cause discomfort while riding.
Once in place, the mask is an ideal eye protection accessory. It’s solid, sturdy and practical. What’s more, it stays perfectly in place, even at speed. And that’s a great thing! Today, most masks are equipped with systems and foams that prevent the structure from exerting pressure on the biker’s face. But to do this, you need to take care to adjust it properly.
Hybrid models: goggles + mask
There is an alternative that offers a number of advantages: hybrid motorcycle goggles. Our EYEFUL AKO model is a perfect example. It comes with temples to match your motorcycle helmet, but also an elastic headband to replace the traditional temples. Perfect for bikers who want a goggle with temples, or a goggle with headband. What’s more, AKO goggles come with a kit for prescription lenses. This can be clipped into the goggle as required. If you have no vision problems, you can simply remove the kit.
