Giro Basis Goggles -

The clean, minimal frame of the Giro Basis Goggles makes this medium sized frame comfortable and lightweight. This is due to the Giro's Super Fit Engineering to design the best fitting frame according to their database of facial measurements and rider input. This helmet compatible design features plush tailored face foam with a micro fleece facing to seal out the elements and keep your vision clear and focused on riding. The lens options available for the Basis goggle are all spherical True Sight lenses which mimic the form of the human eye to provide you with the highest quality lenses possible. By taper correcting the lens, Giro minimizes prismatic distortion while providing superior optics. The use of this technology increases the air volume inside the goggle which reduces fogging on the lens. The full range of performance-engineered lens tints and mirror coatings that help enhance vision are protected by a durable hard coating that resists scratches. The polycarbonate lenses filter 100% of harmful UV rays to keep your eyes protected in every condition from Blue Bird sun to cloudy overcast days. Carl Zeiss optics has done it again with the Giro Basis Goggles.

Lining and Layers:

  • Double-layer lens helps reduce fogging by creating a thermal barrier between the cold outside air and warm, moist air around your face
  • 3-layer face foam is designed to ensure a tight seal, good moisture management and maximum comfort


  • Triple Layer Face Foam with Micro Fleece Facing


  • The Giro Basis snow goggles are designed to fit medium-size adult faces

  • Made by Carl Zeiss Vision, the spherical lens tapers from the optical center toward the periphery for a wide field of vision with minimal distortion and excellent clarity


  • Persimmon Blaze lens has a bronze tint with 50% visible light transmission (VLT) and a fiery scarlet mirror to heighten detail and contrast in overcast, low-light conditions
  • US shipments only
  • Spherical True Sight lenses provide better optics and increase air volume inside the goggle to help prevent fogging

Positive Reviews:

Overall the Giro is a good goggle, ordered with the Amber Scarlet lens for bright sun to partly cloudy out west and it did fine. This particular lens is NOT good for overcast flat light! Peripheral visibility is really good as well.
I have a narrow angular face, tried this in the store and thought it fit well. However after receiving it from backcountry at a very affordable price, I didn't think it fit as well. It seemed to be more curved than I remembered (narrow profile, doesn't stick out past the side of your face). My husband and I switched goggles and he likes their fit more than I do. His goggles are the Smith I/O and I prefer their fit much more - they seem to be a bit flatter across and sit high enough to not pinch my nose.
Overall for the price, these are good goggles.

These fit perfectly, and with the darkest lenses I almost never have to even change them out except for on a serious storm day. They are comfortable and have excellent lens quality and field of vision. I never have fogging issues at all, even if I am doing something dumb that would cause any goggle to fog, like hiking with them on, etc. I don't push it though and leave them wet in the car overnight or put them on my wet hat during a storm or stuff like that, because you should just NEVER do those kinds of things to your goggles anyways.

I just got the Basis goggle White with the loden green lens, these things look and fit great. I like how tight the top of the goggle fits with my Giro Chapter helmet. Backcountry, thanks for helping me look good on the slopes.

Negative Reviews:

Don't buy any Giro goggle if you plan to wear them outside. Replacement lenses are impossible to find. The Giro website lists all of the lens options and prices and gives you links to several companies that don't carry them

Neutral Reviews:

I've got the amber gold lens and I feel like the lens is great but the fit of the goggle is a bit off. The nose piece (for me) is a bit too narrow so these sit strangely on my face. Thankfully you can try them out if you buy them here and send them back if it doesn't work out, but I'd be sure to check the fit before relying on these. On the positive side, I haven't experience much fogging with this goggle.
