Models you can build at the Oakley Goggle Bar!
There are six models you can build at the Oakley Goggle Bar. They are listed below, each with a short description of what they are and what they’re best for. We also have 14 lenses for you to choose — from the swagged out Fire lens (good for sunny days) to the practical High-Intensity Yellow (best lens for night time) we have whatever you need!
The Splice, relatively new to the Oakley family, is a Goggle Bar favorite. Designed wider along the nose to alleviate pressure, it sometimes feels as if you have nothing on your face at all. If you decide you want to buy two separate lenses (one for day, one for night), interchanging it on the Splice is unbelievably easy. And the outriggers draw the pressure from your strap away from the lens, which doesn’t distort your vision.
Maybe the coolest goggle at the Goggle Bar, the Airbrake is the paramount of Oakley’s goggle technology. Changing lenses, oftentimes a pain, is now nearly effortless. With the pull up of a lever on the side, the lens easily pops out and allows you to get your other one in as quickly as a chairlift ride. Although on the upper echelon of Oakley’s pricing structure, the Airbrake comes with two lenses and a case.
Hands down, the Crowbar is the most popular Oakley goggle at The Boardroom. With a shape that is formed specifically to the structure of your face, its outriggers distribute pressure equally to each side — avoiding a warped frame. A bigger lens allows your eyes more time to scope the hill and plot that next line. Around here, where the flatlight can turn shadows into bumps (and vice-versa) having more vision is crucial. The Crowbar gives you that.
The Elevate caters to someone who has a smaller face. Now, no longer will someone have to deal with an oversized goggle — avoiding the treacherous Joey Gap in the process. Even with its limited presence, the Elevate’s large lens allows for maximized peripheral vision. Coupled with the close-fitting outriggers that equalize pressure from your strap, the Elevate is a huge hit amongst the ladies and young guns.
Engineered to give you an absurd amount of vision on the hill, the Canopy is Oakley’s biggest goggle in terms of lens size. The larger lens allows you to see everything around you — almost as if you weren’t wearing goggles at all. The Canopy’s rigid strap anchor plates (comparable to the outriggers on the other goggles) distributes pressure evenly across your face. And with the top of the frame flatter, the Canopy syncs up with your helmet easier than ever before. Wear glasses? The larger lens allows you to wear them underneath.
The most iconic snow goggle Oakley has ever made, the A-Frame is the Godfather. It has air holes across the top of the frame to increase air-flow — which decreases the chance of your goggles fogging up. Triple polar-tech fleece face foam takes away the moisture that accumulates around your face, keeping those eyes dry and protected. The A-Frame fits well, gives you solid vision and makes you look good doing it.
Picking the right lens is critical. In Western New York, where the winter sun is rare to make an appearance, having a lens that allows you to see well can make all of the difference. Fortunately, the Goggle Bar has a lens for every condition.
