Review: 100% Racecraft MX Goggles

Some words about the brand:

100% is a well-known brand in the motocross community, and the past years more and more know in the Mountain bike community.These goggles are made FullFace helmets like used in downhill and motocross.

I have been using these goggles for about 1 season, and there are no signs of wear.

If you use the tear-offs, in rain or humid weather, there will be fog between the lens and the tear-off. So in rain or humid conditions, I don’t use the tear offs, I only use them in dry condition to protect the lens.

After riding in 1 Celsius

Pros:

  • Comfortable.
  • I think it’s easy to change lenses, but not too easy like with Adidas Pinner googles.
  • It to change lenses in in a hurry while out riding because they are so secured so well, but for me this is this is not a con, you do not wave to worry about the lenses falling off.
  • the triple layer foam & the vents makes sure you don’t overhead and/or get soaked of sweat.The difference between the Adidas Pinner and 100% Racecraft is huge, soaked versus dry or almost dry to slightly moist foam in 25 Celsius, and soaked vs slight moist in not so hot days.But the sweat travels trough to the Grey layer and if its much it can drip some.
    triple layer foam is a must for me.

    100% Racecraft goggle vs Adidas Pinner goggle
  • even after 4 weeks of summer riding the foam did not stink.
  • The foam is well glued, and the durability of the foam is much better than the Adidas Pinner google has, none of the foam peeled off.
  • good FOV/field of view
  • the lens will stay on even if you are rough with the goggles.
  • The rubberised strap works well, I use a 2015 Mavic notch & Fox Rampage Pro Carbon helmet, and it never slipped off.
  • The tear off system actually work, unlike on the  Adidas Pinner goggles.,the plugs are the correct size, and the tear-fit tight so they won’t fall off.
  • Nose guard
  • good ventilation

    RC 1.2
  • the nose guard sits snugly and won’t just fall off.
  • 2 lenses
  • comfy fit
  • several color choices.
  • the lens stays in place well.
  • the perfect shape on the top which will not leave a big gap between the goggle and the helmet which some goggles do, Adidas Pinner for example.

Cons:

  • no replacement foam.
  • you can lose the nose guard without even noticing it, which I did with one of the goggles, mine probably snapped out when I took them off or a branch hit them, who knows.
  • the extra lens got an anti-scratch sticker on it which needs to be removed, but one of the lenses that came with one of the 2 goggles I got left glue residue, so you should clean it off.

Verdict: Recommended

So far it is the best goggle I have seen to a decent price.

The goggle offers excellent ventilation and comfort at a excellent price.

it cost about the online same as I paid for one Adidas Pinner in the local bikes store
