Wiley X Airrage

Received my Wiley X Airrage goggles Friday.

On the motorcycle I am one of those people that spares no expense when it comes to safety glasses and comfort of my goggles. The way some people are about helmets (not for me) I am about riding goggles.

First I demand ANSI Z87.1 compliance.

This is my fourth pair of Wiley X goggles. The others are still in service and doing well. For this pair I decided to get the digital complete correction so the are a line less trifocal type lens ( I am old).

The are also auto tint. For this pair I order the extra dark so they don't quite go clear indoors. But during are Western fall sunsets Friday and Saturday they performed very well.



They fit my face the best of all the Wiley X I own. I have the Blink (two pairs. One auto tint grey and one winter riding auto tint orange). Also have a pair of Gravity in the dark blue emerald permanent tint. (These are for seriously bright western days. Plus because the are permanent tint the are polarized).

If eye wear and protection is important to you I would suggest you take a look at Wiley X. Both prescription and non prescription are available in all their frame. Climate control and goggles are the best choices IMO for motorbike riding protection.

I do not work for Wiley. Nor do I receive any discount or compensation from them. I just like the product the sell

I have Wiley X eyewear too and love them! I bought the women's "curve LA" glasses with removable foam insert. I liked the dual purpose because i can wear them as normal sunglasses as they auto tint as well but they also protect my contacts on the bike where as normal sunglasses let my contacts dry out and I was having alot of trouble at first.

Your contacts dry out because of the wind in your face, is that correct?

These look to be a good choice for you. It'd be cool to see them on your face to see how they look.

Wiley X eye wear appears great. I am however, using my Mil-tec Klar paratroopers eyewear. It serves me great on the bike as well and is another nice option.

Those look great.

Good choice on going with a darker tint, those sunsets and sun rises can be very bright and blinding at time at eye level, and of course those are nice times to ride.
