Goggle fog happens for one reason: Moisture. To eliminate fogging you first need to identify the location of the fog:
Next identify where the moisture is originating from.
Fogging on the inside of the lens:
If you are fogging on the inside of the lens, you most likely are not getting a good seal of the goggle foam against your face.
To resolve this issue, try tightening or repositioning your goggle strap higher in the back and/or repositioning the goggle so that it tilts slightly forward at the top to ensure proper ventilation. If it still doesn’t seal, it may be an issue with your helmet or your head shape.
Make sure your balaclava, helmet, or breath box isn’t holding the goggle off your face.
Fog is appearing in between the two lens panes:
Fog is appearing on the outside lens:
If the outer lens is fogging, this is common when stopped, the cold weather breathbox is not being used, or the breathbox is not positioned closest to the face under the goggle nose mask.
Try controlling your breathing and direct your breath downward to allow it to escape your helmet without reaching the lens. Outer lens fogging quickly dissipates once you are in motion.
The following ‘best use’ tips will cut down on fogging as well:
All these tips have the same goal in mind: Prevent moisture from entering inside the goggle. No moisture = No fogging. If you continue to have fogging issues, please contact customer support (877-743-3509) for further assitance.
