Back in early 2013 when Motocross was having a major burst of new product hitting the track Oakley took the Moto world by storm with the announcement of Airbrake for MX. Oakley combined some 35 years plus of glasses and goggle design with great strides in technology to bring the world of MX the Airbrake Motocross Goggle. These goggles were the very first retail available product to feature a high impact ballistic grade resistant Plutonite injection formed and shaped lens, the same lenses used in US Military assault goggles. When Airbrake was born it set out to be an unsurpassed engineering feat that has still today set the bench mark for motocross goggles……other brands have yes had a go but still they follow in the Airbrake MX Goggles roost!
Airbrake Motocross Goggles were engineered to be a riders most reliable and versatile piece of equipment with the convenience of Switch-lock interchangeable lens technology. Imagine a goggle you can change on the fly from a tear off goggle to a roll off goggle in two easy steps effortlessly. Change out faceplates, straps and outriggers totally customising your Airbrake to suit your style. Our sport pushes us to the limit in terms of endurance, and Oakley have made us a goggle meet and exceed our expectations pairing uncompromising durability with a design that makes Airbrake MX goggle pretty much indestructible, but hey if you do happen to need a replacement part you we carry them all here at Dirtbikebitz.
The Airbrake MX lens is 50% of this goggles success. Typical MX Goggle lenses are pressed out of flat sheets of generic plastic material then as you bend the lens to fit into the conventional goggle this causes some optical distortion. All Airbrake MX lenses are injection moulded under extreme pressure to create a contour of optically correct geometry, achieving the precision and clarity a rider needs for performance and safety. All Airbrake lenses are interchangeable are made of an optically pure synthetic and impact resistant material called Plutonite and are available in a range of optical colours for all conditions. The Airbrake tear off goggle is available with Oakley’s highly regarded Prizm lens technology.
Prizm MX lenses help you see subtle transitions in dirt conditions so you can master all those split-second decisions. With high-impact resistance that makes you invincible, this landmark of technology is the first even MX design with a lens of pure Plutonite. It's the new standard of protection and it lets you take the adapt-and-conquer approach with Oakley Switch-lock Technology, the secret to fast and easy lens changing. The view is wide open, the comfort is beyond reason and the performance leaves other goggles scrambling for second place.
