Not since the early days of the sport has a single goggle design brought so much innovation. Long ago, Oakley's founder developed an entirely new goggle that became a mainstay in the sport for 17 years. You are now looking at the future of MX goggles.

Protection: This is the first-ever MX goggle with a lens made of injection-moulded Plutonite. That’s the most optically pure lens material ever utilized for MX goggles, and it’s insanely tough. Oakley Plutonite is the same ultra-tough material that shields the eyes of soldiers who can’t compromise on protection, and compared to the flimsy, flexible lenses found in other goggles, Airbrake MX makes you invincible.
Riders have to be ready to face whatever conditions Mother Nature throws down. That’s why Airbrake MX is armed with Oakley’s Switchlock Technology. It makes the process of lens changing fast and hassle-free — no more fumbling around to swap out a lens. When a lens is locked securely into the rigid O Matter frame, there is no bending or warping like inferior designs that distort vision. And Switchlock Technology lets you take advantage of our full armoury of premium lens tints. From daytime practice laps to the nighttime main event, you can match your lens tint and adapt your vision perfectly to any environment.
Now let’s talk clarity. Ordinary MX lenses are stamped from flat sheets of generic material then bent to fit into the goggle frame, and the result of that warping is visual distortion. Safety and performance demand true, accurate vision, so we injection-mold the lenses under extreme pressure to achieve a precise optical geometry. That means you see more detail, and you can believe what your eyes are telling you. It’s the ultimate in clarity and optical fidelity.
Field of Vision:
When a rider is on the track, he needs to be aware of who might be challenging his position. That’s why this sleek design extends peripheral vision to the absolute max. Airbrake MX also offers an optimized fit that takes into account the vertical frame orientation when the rider is in racing position — with bent elbows and crouched over the bars — positioning the lens up and in front of the eyes.
This goggle is the culmination of every breakthrough we’ve made, including three decades of refinement in comfort and fit. It features an exoskeleton frame, with a durable yet lightweight O Matter exterior mated to a flexible urethane faceplate. The rigid outer frame holds the lens securely, and a pliable inner faceplate with plush, absorbent foam conforms to your face like it was made just for you.
We engineered this goggle for instant adaptability, and that goes beyond Switchlock inter-changeable lens technology. Airbrake MX is the Swiss Army knife of goggles. You can easily swap out replacement faceplates, outrigger configurations, and straps. It’s fully adaptable, configurable, serviceable. This is truly the one goggle that can do it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AntHill There is no other goggle worth buying now
I like trail riding specially the downhill section so goggles are a must for eye protection. I've been using the Oakley Crowbar of various colours over the past few years and they are ok, do their job, nothing to report other than I can see less than when I've just got my protective glasses on. OK, so I decided I needed a fuller face helmet than my Urge fake jet so I just got the Down o matic and decided new goggles were in order.
Now we move on to the Airbreak MX. To be honest spending £100 on any glasses is a little crazy to me but it was my birthday (All I'm saying is I paid £98 for them with delivery in the UK). People had raved about them and they looked like they had more about them than the normal Crowbar configuration.
They arrived, got them out of the box, held inside their nice little carry bag, very posh. The first thing that struck me is the quality of the components, everything looks and feels nicely finished. Next that Plutonite lens, you can feel and see the difference straight away, it sounds hard but has a clarity I haven't seen in goggles or glasses. Getting the lens out and in is easy, a far cry from the normal flat Lexan lens removal of popping out the lens and then spending fifteen minutes lining it up again to get it back.
Putting the goggles on over my helmet the fit is spot on for me, not to much pressure around my eyes but a positive soft fit. The view is far far superior to the Crowbar I'm used to, there is more to see from all angles specially up and down and the clarity is amazing. I stood in front of the mirror and tried both Crowbar and Airbreak on to compare the overall feel and view, there is no comparison the Airbreak's are superior in every way, soft seal on the face, much better shape across the face, lower profile, best lens money can buy. Only one little thing, the field of view is so wide the black tear off pegs on the lens are more pronounced than a normal lens, I think it's a fly now and again.
In conclusion, if you are a mountain biker that fancies trying goggles with your open face trail helmet, and/or you like riding full face on the trails or downhill, save some more pennies and get the Airbreak, it's in a different league to other goggles I've used. Don't skimp on your eye wear even if like me you carry the goggles in your pack until you are running a gravity section then swap your glasses. I wish these would have been out before I went bidding for my first pair of Crowbar's would have saved money in the long run.
