The motorcycle goggles produced by Barstow are amongst the best in the world, and the new company has quickly earned itself a place on the gear rack of many motorcyclists.
Although they’re based on the design of off-road goggles used in vintage Hare and Hound desert races, Barstow uses modern materials and modern ergonomics – including Dalloz Optics high-quality lenses, triple-layer fleece-lined face foam, a spare lens, an included set of tear offs and a carry bag.
Goggles like these have become increasingly popular with road riders, add they work well with 3/4 face and visorless full face helmets, and offer a lot more protection than a pair of sunglasses.
