Heated Goggles

I have had a lot of trouble with goggles icing up when the temperature is below 20F. The colder it gets, the worse the ice buildup. To try and solve this problem, I recently purchased a pair of heated goggles.

Mine are from 509 and they are the Ignite model. The short answer is that they were ice free in near 0F weather. I rode for about 2 hours and the battery was very close to being fully discharged, but the goggles were ice free for 2 hours in North Dakota.

Sounds like a great tip, Dan. I will look into it. Stay warm, spring is right around the corner! We're here getting through this together!
