2019 was a big year for goggles with several new models and brands entering the arena. That said, it can be hard to differentiate between the options to know which goggles are right for you. That’s where our 2020 motocross goggles buyers’ guide comes in. Follow along as we break down the features of and technology in our top goggles for 2020.

Scott Prospect

Price: $99.95

Scott’s Prospects find themselves on buyers’ guides year after year, and for good reason. Not only do we love them, but the pros like Blake Baggett, Adam Cianciarulo, and Justin Barcia do, too. Coming in with the features you expect from a premium goggle at the price you want, the Prospects are a great model to kick off this list.

Scott designed the Prospect goggles with vision in mind. To them, there are three key elements for a good field of vision: lens perimeter, frame thickness, and lens curvature. The Prospect’s lens perimeter involves increased lens height with a lower nose design, creating the largest possible lens to reduce visual obstruction. The frame thickness helps keep the lens close to the eye while remaining thin enough to prevent a tunnel effect. The lens is curved as much as possible to maximize peripheral vision. With these three factors, vision is optimized to be as wide and unobstructed as possible.

Other notable features of the goggle include its Lexan lens and Scott Lens Lock System. While not optically correct, the Lexan lens is made to be extremely durable, something that comes in handy if you encounter roost. Scott’s proprietary lens changing system makes it easy to change lenses – with 4 tabs, removing and replacing the lens can be done in mere seconds.

100% Armega Goggles

Price: $90.00-$120.00

100% is no stranger to producing top-of-the-line goggles, but they may have outdone themselves with the Armegas. New in 2019, the Armegas are 100%’s premium offering, and they have the qualities to go with the title.

The Armerga’s injection molded, optically correct lens only underscores the technology inside: an ULTRA HD lens and HiPER contrast enhancer that are both exclusive to 100%. The two work together, the HD lens bringing more clarity while with the HiPER tech enhances the depth. The lens is also extremely secure with six points of contact keeping it tight and unmoving. Those six contact points don’t make the lens difficult to change, though – 100%’s quick lens changing system makes changing and cleaning lenses simple and fast without smudging either of the lenses.

Moving past the lens, the frame includes force air intake vents to increase airflow, ensure fog-free vision, and maximize humidity evacuation. This makes the Armega a great goggle for sweaters, along with the perforated triple layer face foam. The perforations allow sweat to travel through the foam to the goggle’s gutter system that then drains out the side rather than dripping into the inside. Not only is the face foam good for that, but it’s also super comfy without restricting the goggle’s wide field of vision.

Held together by a grippy 48mm band, the Armega goggles are an industry leader in quality, protection, and performance.

Fox Racing VUE

Price: $134.95

Fox Racing released the VUE goggle lineup in 2018 as part of a gear development project with Ken Roczen. The manufacturer and racer worked closely to develop a product that could withstand the rigors of professional racing while remaining affordable and accessible to the everyday rider, and the resulting VUE goggle lived up to that vision.

Out of all the goggles on this list, the VUE’s lens is easiest to swap with Fox’s TruLock system. With outriggers that turn and pop off, Fox makes it easy to replace, swap, and secure lenses every time. The Fox goggle also offers some of the best peripheral vision, the frame curvature working to widen the goggle’s field of view. Add in the dual-density frame construction, 360 venting system, and triple layer face foam, and the VUEs are a great option for avid racers and casual riders alike.

Leatt Velocity 6.5

Price: $79.99-$89.99

The Leatt Velocity 6.5 goggles are the manufacturer’s first attempt at motocross goggles, and we’ve got to say, they’re a homerun. Though they were just released in 2019, we’ve gotten some ride time in with them to know how much of a bang for your buck they really are. Leatt did a great job of incorporating the features of a high-end goggle, along with a few unique features of their own, at a budget-friendly price point.

Like other goggles on this list, the Velocity 6.5 has an optically correct, injection molded lens, comfortable triple layer face foam, and outriggers designed to work with both roll-offs and tear-offs. The lens changing system is extremely user-friendly, and the goggle’s 50mm strap (same as the Prospects) is as durable as it is secure. Unlike other goggles, however, the Velocity includes a bulletproof lens. That’s not just a figure of speech, either – the lens is literally bulletproof, strong enough to keep a 22mm from penetrating at close range and strong enough to meet military ballistics specs. If it can protect you from that, common roost doesn’t stand a chance.

Rounded out with a 170° field of vision, a permanent anti-fog function built into the inner polymer lens (did we forget to mention that the lens is dual paned?), and an over-the-glasses fit, the Velocity 6.5 goggles from Leatt are a top contender in a stacked field.

Oakley Airbrake

Price: $160.00-$210.00

The Airbrakes have long been a staple of the premium goggle lineup. Tried and true, their timeless design and effortless functionality sustain them as a best-in-class offering year after year. Taking a closer look at the goggles, it’s evident that Oakley designed them with an emphasis on protection, vision, comfort, and convenience.

Starting with protection, the Airbrakes are notably the first goggles to have an injection molded Plutonite lens. This provides 100% protection against ambient UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm. For vision, Oakley developed their proprietary PRIZM technology to enhance color, contrast, and details. That helps provide the Airbrakes with unparalleled clarity and depth. Thick and breathable face foam makes the goggles extra comfortable, while the sleek frame design extends peripheral vision and offers an optimized fit no matter what position the rider is in. On top of that, Oakley’s Switchlock system makes replacing and cleaning lenses as quick and convenient as ever.

All around, the Airbrakes are some of the best looking, feature-rich goggles available. They come in at a premium price, but the premium features make them well worth it.
