Sweat it out.
When you're pushing the limits of your body and bike, it's helpful to know where you're going. And with the Smith Fuel V.2 Sweat-X Goggle, that won't be a problem. Multiple density foam, fog-fighting dual pane lenses, and multiple tear-off options ensure that you'll have an unobstructed view. The race-winning pedigree is just a bonus.
Goggles are assigned a fairly simple set of tasks -- provide clear vision, a close fit, and to be fog-free. These tasks are inherently related, in that a correct fit ensures clear vision. And to make sure that the Fuel fits flawlessly, Smith has incorporated its F.A.T. three-layer face foam structure. Basically, it consists of a dense foam base with a soft, conforming foam mid-layer, and a felt layer that absorbs sweat. The result is a seamless interface that ensures that fogging won't be a problem. The fit also gets a boost from outriggers, which hold the goggle strap away from the frame, thereby ensuring that the strap clears your helmet. The straps are held in place with silicone grippers, so your goggles will stay put run after run.
As you'd expect, the clear lenses included with the Fuel incorporate tear-off tabs, so you'll have clear vision in the wettest of conditions. But, if you'd prefer something that's friendlier to both the user and the environment, Smith also includes its roll-off system. It's not dissimilar from an analog camera, in that the pull tab advances the film roll across the lens. And, along with being easier to use than a standard tear-off, you'll also enjoy the moral high ground of taking your used lens-protectors with you, rather than littering the earth with sheets of tear-off film.
The Smith Fuel V.2 Sweat-X Goggles are available in one size and in the colors Cyan/orange offset, Neon Mission, Red/yellow slasher, and White/black offset.

I've got a pair of these on my Giro Cipher helmet and they are awesome. Plenty of ventilation, no fogging, super comfortable and the best looking goggles out. The Red Mirror lens is surprisingly versatile in different light conditions, I haven't had to use the clear lens yet.

Gettin the job done
i picked these up to go with my 661 evo wired helmet, and they work great. i don't know that goggles without outriggers wouldn't have also fit so well, but i can say that these goggles with the outriggers fit great!
i've had no problems with fogging while riding, but if you just finished a run and leave them and your helmet on, your breath will fog them a little. likewise, if you're not moving, your face can heat up pretty quickly. but as soon as you start downhill, lots of cool air rushes in.
