    Looks a little different than the sneak pic posted a few months ago, but definitely looks cool. I'm curious how the Switchlock works on there. What is the MSRP on them, and will they include two lenses like the snow version?

    Unfortunately they do not have Switchlock on these, purely because of the 'roll on' technology of the tear offs. No idea on the MSRP yet as Oakley have not released this, but I would think that they will be reasonable.

    The initial information suggests that they will not come with 2 lenses, but you can buy them seperately.

    I wonder what the point of these is then since there's no Switchlock. Airbrake MX Goggles - Review, Pictures And Tech | Shade Station - scratch.gif

    Well they are the first ever MX goggle with a spherical lens, so they have HDO and XYZ Optics, something that no other MX goggle has ever managed. The issue before was trying to keep a tear off on a spherical lens, but with the roll-on tech, it looks like they've solved it.

    Oh wow that looks funky. But in a good way. The roll-offs are a very 'Oakley' thing to do. i'm interested to see how well it fares in actual use

    Airbrake MX definitively has Switchlock in it. Unlike the snow version, the switchlock components are on both sides and not just the one. The lens is now plutonite which gives it XYZ and HDO optics. They had to create the roll-off system because tear offs do not stay on a spherical lens.

    I've just had a word with one of our tech reps at Oakley and they did confirm that the Airbrake MX doesn't have switchlock? Maybe we will have to wait and see in person :)

    Every info piece I've seen on the new Airbrake goggle has shown the Switchlock function. And as well they offer both roll-off and tear offs for this model.
