    Abom googles?

    Looking for product review on these from you sledders. Anyone out there use these?
    I have looked at the 509 senisters X5 and the Oakley Prizm Infernos. Both use a battery pack mounted to the strap which i find kinda clunky.
    The Abom does not, its all integrated in the frame.

    I have been running them since the beginning of winter though I haven't felt I have had enough time to really suggest one over the other with heated lens. There have been days that regardless of what goggles you had you were going to need another pair, or two and then some days I found the ABOMS to do all that I expected them to. I wanted to pick up a pair of the Oakleys to have a true comparison but a few guys in the group have them and one is running the 509's. I think the Oakley's are the better product overall just due to battery life. The battery life in the ABOMS when left on all day is between 5-6 hours so they start to lose their effectiveness at the end of the day.

    I prefer not having a battery pack on the google strap. It fits very well in my helmet and the strap isn't as tight as the Oakleys. I would pick up another pair of ABOMS if the price was right.

    Do the aboms fit in a snocross helmet??? They look rather large.

    I dont even notice the battery pack on my infernos. Its nice that the heater runs long enough to clear the lense when needed. I think it stays on for 3 min. The vibration with the button push is nice so you know the heater is activated. I only need 1 pair of goggles now, since I bought my infernos.

    The ABOMs fit my Suomy perfectly. They have a led indicator in the frame, hardly noticeable but it indicates either boost mode or constant on and then has high heat with instant push.

    Again you sacrifice some battery life with the ABOM because itís smaller, contained in the frame. I like them.
