2018 Ultimate Dirt Bikers Christmas Wish List Christmas Wish List
You’ve left the dirt biker on your list until the very last minute! They are the hardest person to buy for after all. Dirt Bike News has you covered, here are a few ideas to help fill that void under the tree:
2018’s MUST HAVE ITEM
AirFlaps – Passive Goggle Ventilation System –PRICE: $65.00CDN http://www.airflaps.com/
A simple but revolutionary way to passively keep fogging and moisture buildup to a minimum, Airflaps is an easy to use stick on & transferrable system that sticks to any helmet to allow for more airflow between your helmet and goggles to eliminate fogging goggles at the worst of times.
Weighing only 28grams per side and easily flippable at any moment, Airflaps system for Goggles can be removed at a moments notice and swapped without any modifications to your helmet. While more expensive then we would hope, the cost of having your goggles on the entire ride or race is worth the price of admission every time!
tekmoracing.com Supplier of Aftermarket Carbon Fibre & Mcneal MXDistrubutions Hooked us up and Test Riders with AirFlaps To Test them out on their challenging Alberta Trails. check them out at facebook.com/pg/mcneil.mxdistri/shop/
Stephen Foord AMA Vet Endurocross Champion had this to say when testing the System with DirtBikeNews
I really liked this product as I do sweat and overheat alot which means my goggles fog up so I have to take them off which means I ride without goggles to protect my eyes. With this product I can get the airflow to keep myself cooler and de-fog my goggles while still keeping my goggles on. I highly recomend this product!
