EKS Goggles

EKSGogglesWe picked up another set of EKS brand goggles because we liked the first one so much.  We got them from Wurlitzer Racing products (www.wurlizerracingproducts.com) and also bought the Zip-Off system because I’m not a fan of the tear-offs.  If you already have a set of the goggles, the Zip-Off package is an affordable way to avoid using tear offs.  I got the Zip-Off system that comes mounted to a lens – i.e without the goggle frame. The package retails for 34.99 and includes two rolls of film and a stick-on rain visor. The zip off feature can be used 33 times on one roll of film.  The EKS Brand lenses are interchangeable, so the Zip-Off system fits into any goggle, minus the youth model. There are two different Zip-Off lenses (rain and roost); the roost lens is smooth while the rains lens is grooved.  I opted for the roost lens.   Despite being smooth, I had no issues with the roll off film sticking to the lens.

What I like about the EKS brand is that the goggle frames do not apply pressure to my nose like some other brands can – I guess it depends on the shape of your nose but the EKS fit me the best.  With some goggles the foam can act as a conduit for sweat to drip into the top of the lens.  Not so with the EKS brand as the foam is multi-layered and does an excellent job of absorbing perspiration.
