Summary

These are the best goggles. They don't fog up easily. The lens is easily removable. The frameless design has inspired a lot of copy cats. The peripheral vision on them is HUGE. They are very durable.

I had a pair with a defective lens and POC sent me a new lens for free. Great customer service. Very unique, most people don't have these and they look awesome!!

Pros

  • Large field of vision
  • Colors
  • Light
  • Helmet compatible

Cons

  • Fog slightly easier than some goggles
  • Expensive

I used to be an Oakley snob. I owned five pairs of Crowbars. But I just like these so much better. The optics seem on-par, but these offer a larger field of view. They also don't look as ridiculous as the Airbrake or the Canopy which are incredibly huge. 

The black-on-black option and the white-on-white option are really unique looking. I get asked almost every day what goggle I have on. 

The field of view is giant with these. You can see in every direction. They fit very well, and they stay tight around your head.  They fit really well with a helmet. Especially with a POC helmet.

The Lobes Goggles from POC sport a huge lens to optimize the field of view. The inspiration came from Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz, who put his windows outside the buildings, and from astronaut Neil Armstrong. To minimize optical distortion, the Lobes lens is a perfectly shaped spherical surface. The lens is made of polycarbonate, perfectly tapered in thickness and cut to shape using computerized numerical control. Another thinner sheet of cellulose propionate is applied to the inside. Lenses are anti-fog and anti-scratch treated.

Designed to promote maximum peripheral vision when you're racing down the mountain at blistering speeds, the POC Lobes Goggle offers a large-sized frame and spherical-injected lens that's placed on the outside of the goggle for effortless lens swapping. The lens itself is treated with an anti-scratch, anti-fog treatment, allowing you to see clearly through nasty snowstorms, as well as resisting scratches from small bumps. Its soft polyurethane frame increases safety, should you fall face first onto the snow, and the triple-layer face foam offers blissful comfort. Additionally, there's a silicone backing on the strap, allowing the goggles to grip to your helmet without slipping off.
