How short is the short stem on Flight Jackets?


Oakley Beginner
Hey guys so I recently purchased a pair of flight jackets with no extras like the nosepads/short stems so it costs less.

Now it got me curious how the grip would feel with the short stems on as I see with the standard stems they interfere with my helmet's retention system.

Long shot but can anyone share a photo of their temple wearing a helmet and in FJs in short stems?

The short stems are less than 1cm shorter than the standard ear stems. Both stems still rub the inside of my Fox Speeframe helmet slightly, but they're thin enough that even the long ones don't interfere while riding. I still run the short ones just because I don't need the extra length of the longer set to fit my ears comfortably.
