    See it, slay it.

    The sun may have blinded your park landings in the past, but with the easily swappable lens of the Oakley Airbrake Goggle, you'll be able to stomp it all in any light. The glove-friendly, pivoting Switchlock technology lets you pop the lens out of the frame and replace it with one that better matches the mountain's conditions. The Airbrake comes with two Plutonite lenses that block out 100% of UVA, UVB, UVC, and harmful blue rays; more lens options are available separately. But no matter how you filter the light, the rigid outer frame and flexible inner frame with its three-layer fleece foam liner offer a great fit and all-day comfort. Dual top lens vents and F3 Fog Technology prevent interior condensation during hikes and after falls, and interchangeable strap outriggers let you fine-tune the fit either with or without a helmet.

    • Switchlock interchangeable lens system
    • Two shades of Plutonite lenses
    • O-Matter (urethane) frame
    • Dual lens and F3 Fog Technology
    • Helmet-compatible outriggers

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Oakley goggles are one of the few that fit my face, and actually create a seal. For this, i love them. The airbrakes are also ideal for their interchangeable lens system. The middle of a whiteout or a bluebird day, and the airbrakes have got you covered. I do wish that they had a little bit wider of a view especially looking down towards my feet. They rarely fog up and are compatible with my smith helmet. The O-matter frame is also very flexible, and even though i've completely tomahawked onto my face and ended up with my goggles around my neck, they withstood a top notch jerry of the day wipeout. I'd recommend these goggles all day!

    Good googles

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I was looking to buy these googles with the 2 prizm lenses that Backcountry.com was offering (probably the only one...). That got sold out but then I bought them anyway with the sale at a reasonable price. Very happy with them even if I think only the discounted price makes sense. Full price is too much for them. Very comfortable and not too big on my face (I have a big face...). They sit well with my Giro Seam helmet.

    Airbrakes

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    These goggles are the best out there. Before I got Airbrake's I had Crowbar's, Elevate's, and Splice's. All of those pairs were awesome goggles, but I'd definitely pick Airbrake's any day. The fit on my face is perfect, (I have a medium sized face). The lens changing is very easy and only takes a minute tops once you know what you're doing. My dad has Smith I/O's and the lens changing is a little easier on Airbrake's. The lenses I have are Fire Iridium and Persimmon, both I would recommend. The case that came with them is very useful since they have 2 lenses, and all the other pairs don't come with one. Airbrake's look sick and I get complements all the time on them. I would definitely recommend them and I think it's worth the extra money.

    Killer if you can find on sale

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I picked these up late last season from Whiskey Militia in Tagline Blue with Black/HI Persimmon lenses. I came from using a pair of Crowbars and have to say these have a better field of vision due to a larger lens. Having light/dark lenses is great as it allows you to adjust for conditions as dusk rolls in.



    It comes with a padded case which is a nice touch. 5 stars because of two lenses/case/and not paying anywhere near full price.

    Great goggle but expensive

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The goggles fit great and are extremely comfortable. They fit a lot bigger than A frames or Crowbars and the added size gives you a great field of view. The lenses are also way easier to change than the A frames and can be done in less than a minute if conditions change. Oakley gives you two lenses which makes the price a little more understandable but for overall performance of the goggle it is very comparable to other Oakley models

    Great goggle but expensive

    Good Goggles

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Most of Oakley's products are very good. I particularly like the style of these goggles and that they come with lens for both low light and sunny conditions. The case they come with is nice too.

    Typical Oakley

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Typical Oakley quality and construction. Lenses are easy to change. Comes with a sunny lens for bluebird days and a low light/contrast lens for overcast and dump days so your pretty much covered for whatever the mountain (or hill here in WI) throws at you. Make sure you go to Oakley's website and look at their lens tints under "innovation" tab then to "optical superiority" to ensure you get the right lens for your needs.
    Update:
    WARNING: DO NOT wipe the insides of these goggles. If you do they will fog up horribly. It almost ruined an 18" powder day at Snowbird . Good thing my friend had a back up pair in his pack. My factory persimmon lenses will need to be replaced. Probably go with Prizms.

    All time

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    The Airbrake is a great goggle for anyday. The lens changing system is futuristic and works really well. Compared to the Smith I/O changing out the lens is as easy or easier. Clean design and well functioning. I would say this goggle is one of the best on the market hands down.

    Great vision but...

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The HI Yellow lense is awesome for low light condition were everything looks white.

    Wide field of view, no distortion, confortable.

    Lense swapping system is easy to use an looks rugged.

    BUT...

    In cold conditions (-20�C), they freeze instantly on the outside. I suspect the double layering to be guilty. Outside lense stays very cold and breath humidity instantly freezes on it. My good old lenses don't do that.

    Also, they won't hold onto my helmet when I don't wear them. They either slip onto my face or behind my head.

    The strap adjustment is centered when fully extended so it interfere with the holding thing on the helmet.

    For the price, that should not be.

    I swear by these!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Awesome goggle! You can swap the lens while you are skiing if you really want, its that easy. I keep my spare lens on me at all times and it is so great because I can always adapt to light conditions. Super comfy. Feels great on my face. Never fogs. Buy these!

    Great goggles.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I switched to these from the trusty A Frames.

    Great fit (a little larger overall than the A Frames).

    The lens swap feature works well and is fast.

    Seems to vent better than older Oakley goggles.

    great fit@ a reasonable price....

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    2 lenses. 1 case. Lightweight frame, with interchangeable lenses - one awesome set of adult Tinkertoys. Thanks, Oakley!

    great fit@ a reasonable price....

    definitely worth it!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    most people look at the price of these goggles and question if it's really worth it, well I can tell you that they definitely are! I have the hi-yellow and dark grey lenses which is all you really need, however a lens that operates well in low and high light would be nice to have on the days where you aren't sure what the weather plans on doing. I have just thrown the lenses in my jacket, but that isn't always the best idea since it is expensive to replace the lenses. overall the quality and performance of these goggles are virtually unbeatable in comparison to the other interchangeable goggles on the market. highly recommend! (they also fit nice with poc helmets)

    Get these goggles, you'll thank yourself

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These things are unbelievable, get them now. The lens changing system is super easy to use and gives you a options as light conditions very. Plus, Oakley has a HUGE lens selection so you can go nuts. I have the high intensity yellows for storm days and the fire and emerald iridium lenses for sunny days, these are the best lenses in my opinion. The foam on these goggles is also pretty great, they stay comfy on your face all day and even if you're sweating like crazy they aren't too bad.

    Get these goggles, you'll thank yourself

    Great Pair to wear for 100+ days/yr

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased the airbrake in white with the dark grey, and yellow lenses inDecember 2011. I immediately noticed that the nose cone was a little bigger than that of the a frame. No big deal for me, but if your eyes are very close together this may be an issue. The lense clarity is amazing, and the fit of these goggles is superb with my giro helmet. I wear these on the snow every single day of the winter, the quick change lenses are fast enough to change without a ski school student noticing on the lift! I have a crack down the center of my dark lens (don't fall on your lenses). I would suggest keeping the spare lens in your ave pack. After 2 full seasons and over 200 days on the slopes with these goggles. The foam, and cloth inner liners of these goggles still look brand new, the silicone in the inside of the goggle band has JUST started to wear, there's only one thing to say:I'll be using these for seasons to come!

    Great Pair  to wear for 100+ days/yr

    New fascination

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Fell in love with these this season! Never have I had a goggle that allows me to change the lens out so easily! I always carry all different lenses in my trunk. Once i get up to the mountain i pick the lens that will be best for the day and boom, I am on my way!

    Big, but sweet

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just got a pair of these and haven't used them in the Utah summer yet, but my first impressions are pretty good. I like this Oakley goggle much more than their previous models because of the style and the wider view these goggles afford. With the wider view comes a larger goggle, so if you have a smallish face, these will drown you. Good looking goggle and I am looking forward to some snow!

    Unanswered Question

    How do they (goggles) are comparable by size to Oakley Splice (bigger, the same, smaller)? Also, is there an option from backcountry.com to custom config lenses (I need Hi Yellow + Fire Iridium in polished white body)?

    thank you

    Hi, I purchased my oakley airbrakes goggles 3 years ago and I am looking for replacement lenses. Back then, there was only one airbrake unlike now with an airbrake snow and an airbrake mx. I use my goggles for snowboarding. Will these replacement lenses fit my goggles? Also do you guys ship internationally? I live in Asia. Regards, Max

    Hey Max,

    Unfortunately, Oakley is one of our restricted brands that we cannot ship outside the US. Here's a list of those brands:

    http://sales.liveperson.net/hc/s-9551721/cmd/kbresource/kb-2628895460762699235/view_question!PAGETYPE?sc=120&sp=94&sf=101133&documentid=239527&action=view&VisitorProfile=BCS2&MESSAGEVAR!home=yes&MESSAGEVAR!cookie=no&MESSAGEVAR!docid=239527



    You definitely won't see the MX version as much - it's basically for high impact motorsports. The snow version hasn't changed so the replacement lenses should be interchangeable between yours and the current model. If you are just looking for the lens, here's the link to that page:

    Which one is better, black iridium or dark grey?

    Best Answer

    It's more a personal preference but the dark grey lense is for brighter days as it allows less light in and the black iridium would be more of a medium light lense. Since the airbrakes do come with 2 lenses, your better option would probably be the dark grey in my opinion.

    has anyone had a good crash with these? i would really like to buy them but i fear that if i hit my head good they look like they might break

    Hey there all. Have had several goggles...

    Hey there all.
    Have had several goggles over the years and most have had the same problem...condensation and fogging up. Whether Smith, Dragon, Oakley or Spy, it never fails. I sweat a good deal normally (which I have hated my entire life...but can't change), and it has always been a challenge when searching for gear that it had good breathability. The Oakley A-frames worked decent, but want anyones advice on some goggles that provide good visibility and breathability.

    Saw these. Look good.

    Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    These goggles are great. with my A-frames i always had trouble when using a face mask that they would fog up from my breathing. Purchased the airbrakes over a month ago and first time out with them i used a face mask and these things breath great. experienced no fog going down runs or riding the lift back to the top. Hopefully this helps you in some way home slice.

    You are going to face the same problem no matter what goggle you choose :) The big benefit to the Airbrake is the absolute ease of swapping lenses. You can fog the first one to the point of no return and swap out to a new one in 20 seconds. To help with the condensation issue try to keep your helmet or toque dry by airing out your head when you can. Take the toque or helmet off on the chair or in the snow cat. Give the moisture a chance to evaporate

    Thanks for the tips: I purchased the Airbrakes and had em shipped to Switzerland. Found a smoking deal and got an extra lens as well. No more lugging around three pairs of goggles in the back pack. Used them for the first time this past week in Austria at St. Anton am Arlberg on a very low visibility, stormy day so switched out the fire iridium and used the persimmon lens. Color was ok, but am planning on ordering the High Intensity Yellow as well to see if that will be better for such days.

    Goggle fit great with my helmet and my big melon. Peripheral vision was solid. Was amazed throughout the day by what I could see. Enjoyed having a completely larger area of visibility. Goggle was also super comfortable and I experienced no nasal pressure. Lens did start to fog a bit while standing still waiting for a friend and while cruising up on the gondola with 30+ other people. Soon as I started down the mountain the lens cleared up immediately (Thanks Oakley engineers)! AWESOME! Just awesome.

    So far, so ggggGREAT. Highly recommend.

    Spend the extra $$$. Goggles are worth it.
