I’ve been running the Prospects for a couple months now, the first time I put them on was for a week of riding in the dense forests of Humboldt, CA and it just so happened to be raining the entire time we were there. First things first, I had to swap out the chrome lens for the clear, I figured the lens lock system Scott designed would have aided In making the swap a little less of a headache but that was not the case. It took about as much time and effort as a traditional framed lens, and lining up the holes in the lens to the clamps took a little finesse. Not a deal breaker.
The clarity of the clear lens and that little bit of added line of sight from the larger frame kept traill visibility on point. The tall strap and silicone strip secured the goggle in place on my half shell for the full endurbro look and didn’t move or slip a bit, despite the soaking conditions. I do have one qualm with the NoFog Anti-Fog treatment, it’s not so much the lenses but with the gimmicky name for the treatment. Any time we would pause during the ride, the goggles would fog right up and would not de-fog until I got moving for a couple of seconds. I don’t think any goggle would have been immune to fogging up, given the conditions, but when NoFog is the name of the treatment, I expect the lenses to never fog up. If I had to give them a number rating, I would say they get a 7 out of 10 in these conditions, with the fogging issue knocking a couple points off.
I traded out the clear lenses for the chrome tinted lenses once I got back to sunny SoCal. After a week in dark, wet conditions it was quite a contrast to spend a sunny day at Snow Summit where trails go in and out of the shaded treeline to bright, sunny openings at high speeds. After much time in enduro-mode I threw on my 6D full face and found the goggles extremely snug almost every way, most noticeably in the opening of the helmet. If the goggles were any larger they likely would not have fit. Just like the half shell, the goggles stayed firmly planted in place over my helmet over the jump line and through the rough stuff. Cruising in and out of the shaded areas was no problem for the tinted lenses, they had no visual side effects, at least with my experience running them. I actually have no qualms with the goggles in bright, sunny and warm conditions. In these conditions, I would give the Prospects a 9 out of 10.
