IMG_20150730_180222  

 

the lens protection system does not work as shown in this picture,you can see pro downhill riders using these goggles but never seen one with lens protection on.but sponsored riders got some spare goggles.

pros

  • The version with dots stays in place good grip in the band,the triple striped grip less.
  • they are quite comfortable,the Nano-Foam is soft the plastic frame is flexing to fit the shape of your face.

Cons:

  • the tear off system does not work I tuck the plastic sense protector inside the gap where the head band goes, and bend it do not get in the way.

  •  lens protector’s hole part rip easily, so I taped it instead of using it as intended.
  • Just after few weeks the show signs of wear. the Nano-Foam can easily tear apart, mine have issue with the section on my nose, and some on the sides the mesh loosened,but the foam fill wear off on every goggle on the market.

  • no spare Nano-Foam mesh.
  • some of the clear coat on the inside of the plastic glass fell off. I noticed it after cleaning the goggles,after months of use it got worse.26563786804_26e7ccc8e5_b26895375560_c65a3c3bab_b
  •  it would be nice with a solution that makes it possible to change the mesh with easy thing like if you need to replace the foam you need to order from Amazon or some where else where they sell foam for goggles, but Adidas and sport stores do not sell replacement foam,that wear out, if it does not you are not using the goggles.
  • the elastic band stretched out on the triple stripe version, so I needed to tighten it more, on the tot version it did not.
  • The  triple striped grips crack.
  • in hot days the foam will get soaked of sweat and the sweat splashes on the inside of the lens,which result in the goggle stinking after just 1 or  2 days of use.

    almost one hour of riding and the goggle is soaked with sweat

    the anti-fog coating is pealing off, as you can see I easily scratched it off,
    the coating do no lunger work, the fog up but  i can’t wipe it off because it the damp is under the coating.
     i have 2 goggles so i used them both 1 season and 1 winter and until now this summer.
    You might not notice but there is fog inside in the middle section of the lens.

The only Norwegian online store that sell lenses for pinner goggles: http://www.tromsoskiogsykkel.no/ski/utstyr/skibriller/adidas-pinner-goggle-lens-clear

 

Adidas Pinner Vs 100% Racecraft MX

the only foam replacement kit I found is this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1o6RFXYoIM

Verdict:

because of the lack of foam and venting which result in you getting soaked of sweat,and lack of durability and a lens that snaps out way too easily I can’t recommend this goggle.

adidas escalate stability pro moderator [long term reveiw(1 season ]

When i tried them on i knew i would buy them so i got 2 pairs,
there is perfect amount of room inside the shoe i nthe front so even wide feet would fit,
but my toe comes over the inner sole,but its still confortable,
adidas pro moderator tecnology works pretty good, but the Asics GT-1000 2 GTX’s back end of the sole bends more and is softer,but it does nto mean its unconfortable,infact the shoe is quite confortable.
pros:
affordable price
very breathable
dampening sole
light
more space for your foot than asics shoes fro mteh same year

cons:

the white part of the of the shoe get wear out,they crack and small pits fall off, but your outer sole will wear out before this has has to worry you.
as usual as msot of thee running shoes or shoes in general whoes whould be wider for better support for the pinky toes.

here is a picture of my abused shoes,alot of riding on with straightlien defacto pedals.

Review Adidas ADIZERO TEMPO L short term

http://www.adidas.com/Eyewear/content/vn/products/10332/adizero-tempo-L

for me they are a perfect fit i use size small,

I have been using these for about a  half yea, i have not experienced any issues with these glasses.

I have even been wearing these under my Adidas Pinner goggles the very sunny and low sun light rides., it was still quite comfortable.

 

pros:

  • so comfortable i cant feel them.
  • the shape of the glasses fits my head well its tight into the forehead so flies and other insects and dirt don’t get in my eyes,but for mud protection when mountainbiking you will need goggles of course
  • TRi.FIT™, Quick-Release Hinge™
    The 3 level height adjustment adapts by 8º
  • Quick-Release Hinge™ : if you drop them they the hinges will fall off that way they will not break
Cons:
  • if the fall on the ground the over-ear pieces can fall in to a crack you can’t get them out off.
  • the price
