The POC Fovea Goggle represents a radical departure from POC's World Cup downhill offerings, catering to freestyle riders and freeriders seeking an unparalleled, gigantic field of view. Its spherical double lens provides excellent peripheral vision for skiing at high speeds, negotiating crowded slopes, and darting through tight tree runs. Top venting channels and anti-fog treatment prevent condensation from obscuring your vision on warm spring days and sweaty bootpacks beyond the resort boundaries.
Remaining flexible through frigid winter temperatures, the soft-coated polyurethane frame conforms to your face for an ultra-precise fit, especially considering the luxuriously soft triple-layer face foam. And to ensure compatibility with helmets, the goggle's silicone-coated strap retains a secure fit over your favorite helmet.

Not a fan
Fit was ok. Finish of these goggles felt and looked cheap. I was surprised since I have seen POC being worn by a bunch of serious skiers and riders. I returned for a pair of smith I/O X. What a difference between the two.
First ski goggle
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the first ski goggle I bought. I got a POC helmet so I figured I'd go with goggles I know will fit properly.
I'm really happy with them and someone did complement on them as well :-)
I did have condensation issues the first day I used them and I just learned my lesson that I need to wipe that off or it will eventually freeze. After that I just wipe them down on the lift once in a while and I've had no problems.
I got the Blunck Ed-Hydrogen White Iodine Green/Persimmon/Green Mirror version. In very bright sunshine I could probably use a darker lens and in really overcast, heavy snow scenarios a lighter one but it seems to me to be a decent compromise unless you go for an interchangeable lens goggle.
I do love the goggles however I do occasionally notice a little pressure on the bridge of the nose that was quite annoying when my nose was congested. Once that was over I've had no issues.
