Oakley Prizm Goggles MX Lense Technology

Oakley has set the benchmark in motocross goggles, and their Prizm lens technology takes vision in riding and racing to another level.

Traditional tinted MX goggle lenses simply reduce glare which increases rider comfort and visibility, but the technology does not go much further than that - all wavelengths of light are reduced evenly, and with reduced light, you also have reduced detail and contrast.

Looking through a set of Prizm lenses, a rider will experience increased contrast and detail as the goggle lens will react to a range of colours differently. Some colours will have reduced transmission of light while others will be left as they are. This makes it easier for your brain to pick out different colours and distinguish the difference between the different terrain as it goes rushing by.

How does this affect your lap times or improve your dirt bike riding? Well, the Prizm MX lens allows you to distinguish wet, dry, dusty and sloppy sections, and they really come into their own in constantly changing light conditions, such as blasting through the bush or riding at sun up and sun down. They also make it easier to pick the best rut to aim for, see which line is best when heading towards a jump and which line is going to set you up the best for the next corner, and off-road riders will see rocks, logs, holes and other track irregularities easier and sooner. There are a range of colours available in the prizm lens, including bronze lens, sapphire, and jade, which suit different lighting conditions and track types, and they're available on the Oakley Airbrake and Oakley Front Line models.
