The Ultimate 100% MX Goggles Review [Armega, Racecraft, Plus, Accuri, Strata, Barstow].
100% motocross goggles are some of the most popular goggles around. They are known for their wild colors and designs as well as their wide selection of excellent lenses to suit all sorts of riding environments.
In this article I will be reviewing all of the 100% motocross goggle in the entire 100% range and I will go through their features and available lenses for each.

The 100 Percent Armega goggle was released in March 2019 and has become the flagship model for 100%.
They contain some great, new features that we have never seen before in the 100% range and a new feature that is new to the dirt bike goggle market entirely!
Traditionally, 100% goggles are really comfortable but I always found them to be alittle bit narrow compared to other goggles for riders with wider faces.
The Armega release though has solved this issue by making them abit wider to bring them in line with a more universal fit.
But what is really exciting about the Armega model is that the outer frame of the goggles contain sweat channels behind the triple layer foam that directs the sweat through the channels and releases it out through the sides of the frame.
This means that the sweat won’t build up on your face and cause fogging. Nice!
here is a quick demo video to see this new channeling tech in action –
This is a first for dirt bike goggles! We are witnessing history here! lol.
Additionally, 100% have released a new type of lens technology called Hiper.
The Hiper lens is polycarbonate and optically corrected, which is nothing new but where they have got tricky is their light filtering technology.
The Hiper lens can filter out noisy light that your eyes don’t need and only leave you with the light that you do need.
(HiPer is available in Blue Mirror, Red Mirror and Silver Mirror lenses).
This means greater clarity, more vibrant colors and better depth of perception.
This technology was only available on Oakley PRIZM lenses but it looks like 100% are going to give them some competition with their Hiper lens release.
Armega have also developed their own quick release system to change out the lenses.
The quick release operates on 2 tabs on each side that you snap on and off to get the lens in and out.
These aren’t bad but I found them alittle stiff to use. Its still a good improvement though overall.
The Armega also come standard with outriggers, a nose guard, tear off posts, excellent venting, triple sweat wicking perforated face foam and also a nice and thick 45mm strap (which is my fav).
For only about $100! The Armega is the best value for money motocross goggle on the market right now in my opinion.
100% Armega Replacement Lenses.
The Armega goggle will only fit their Armega custom lenses, ending the ‘1 lens fits all’ campaign from 100%. Check out the 100% Armega replacement lens range here.
The 100% Armega lenses come with tear off posts standard so you can add tear offs to your 100% Armega goggles.
The 100% Racecraft Plus is a step up from the Racecraft with a few extra cool features.
The main change between the Racecraft and the Racecraft Plus model is that the Plus was released with the polycarbonate, vision corrected lens (Plus lens), which is a big step up from the standard lens for clarity and correct vision.
They also released the Racecraft Plus model with 4 layers of face foam to help absorb the sweat faster.
The Racecraft Plus also comes standard with a nose guard to protect your nose from roost and comes standard with Outriggers.

The Racecraft Plus goggle will fit the Standard, Dual and Plus (poly-carbonate vision corrected) lenses in mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% lens range.

The 100% Racecraft motocross goggle was the flagship 100% goggle for many years until the Plus and the Armega has trumped it.
But for only around 65 bucks, they are still great value.
The Racecraft comes standard with outriggers, a removable nose guard, triple layer foam and a 45 mm wide strap.
They also come with a pack of 10 tear offs if you need them and an additional clear lens if you buy them standard with mirrored lenses.
The Racecraft have the widest range of colors and designs in the 100% lineup so be sure to check out all the loud colors available.
If you are thinking of getting the Racecraft goggles, be sure to upgrade the lens to a Racecraft Plus lens which is poly-carbonate and optically corrected.
The increased definition and clarity does make a difference from the standard Lexan lenses that come with the Racecraft goggle.

The Accuri goggle is the mid-range motocross goggle from 100%.
They are hugely popular with riders and are only about 50 bucks.
The Accuri features triple layer of face foam and a 45 mm strap. They don’t have outriggers.
The Accuri goggles are comfortable and these were my backup pair of goggles in my gear bag. I found them to be good but if you have a wider face they may be a little tight for you.

The Accuri goggle will fit the Standard, Dual and Plus (poly-carbonate vision corrected) lenses in mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% lens range.

The 100% Accuri goggles come in a few different models to suit different styles of riding –
The Accuri OTG goggles are exactly the same as the standard Accuri model except that they have more room inside the goggles to fit your prescription glasses.
I personally don’t wear glasses so I haven’t tried them but the Accuri OTG model gets lots of positive reviews online from riders that wear prescription glasses.
The Accuri OTG comes with a single clear Lexan standard lens but you can change this out to mirrored or any tint you like.
You can also upgrade the lens to a dual lens to help with fogging or you can step it up to an optically corrected, poly-carbonate lens for even greater clarity.
100% also sell the Accuri goggle in a youth size which would suit kids under 13.
Check out their range of wild colors and graphics, very cool!
100% Accuri Youth Replacement Lenses.
The Accuri Youth goggle have their own range of standard Lexan lenses so you can choose mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% range.
The 100% youth lenses come with tear off posts standard so you can add tear offs to your 100% Youth Strata goggles.
You can also purchase Accuri goggles with the 100% Forecast Roll Off System installed.
The strip of film that slides along the lens is wider than the Strata SVS system which is great and does a good job of keeping your field of vision clear in muddy riding conditions.
This model comes with a 45mm strap which is nice and wide to grip your helmet better during muddy conditions.
The Accuri Forecast comes with a lens mud flap and two rolls of film. The mudflap sits at the top of the lens and stops mud from getting in between the lens and the film.
The Accuri Forecast comes with a Poly-carbonate vision corrected lens as an added bonus.
Overall, this is an excellent option if you need a permanent roll off system on your goggles for under 100 bucks.
100% Accuri Forecast Replacement Lenses.
The Accuri Forecast goggle lens can be replaced with a clear or smoked Forecast lens that fits the Roll Off system.
You can also replace the film system that sits across the lens if it wears out.
100% have also made a model of the Accuri Forecast Roll Off Goggle for Husqvarna riders as well. Nice!
The Accuri sand goggle is built around finer foam air vents to filter out finer sand and dust particles from entering into the goggles while riding in sand and dust.
The Accuri sand goggle comes standard with a dark smoke lens which is good for the bright glare of sandy riding conditions.
This is a good sand goggle but I did find that it kept fogging up while I was riding.
To counter this, I installed a 100% dual vented lens to help with the extreme heat of the sand dunes and that helped to eliminate the fogging problem.
I really like the dual vented gold lens. They are awesome for sand and other extremely bright riding conditions. the extra venting helps to get rid of the heat and sweat.
The Accuri sand goggle has the same features as the Accuri goggle and comes standard with triple layer foam, a nice and big 45mm strap and also comes with a clear lens as well if you need it for evening riding.

The Accuri Sand goggle will fit the Standard, Dual and Plus (poly-carbonate vision corrected) lenses in mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% lens range.
The Accuri sand goggle lenses come with tear off posts standard so you can add tear offs to your 100% Accuri sand goggles.
(OTG stands for Over The Glasses) This is the exact same goggle as the above Accuri sand goggle except that they are built with more space inside the goggle to fit your prescription glasses.
If you are buying these goggles, I would also recommend swapping out the lens to a 100% dual vented lens to reduce fogging. I recommend the gold mirror dual vented lens for sand riding.
100% Accuri OTG Sand Goggle Replacement Lenses.
The Accuri OTG Sand goggle will fit the Standard, Dual and Plus (poly-carbonate vision corrected) lenses in mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% lens range.
The Accuri lenses come with tear off posts standard so you can add tear offs to your 100% Accuri OTG sand goggles.
The Accuri Enduro Dual Goggle is the Accuri goggle except that it comes fitted with a 100% dual pane lens.
The dual pane lens is excellent for reducing fogging in slow technical riding and extreme cold and heat.
I recommend upgrading the lens to a vented dual lens as the venting in the lens gets rid of the heat and sweat better.
I use the blue vented dual lens for enduro work where there is plenty of shade and mud. The blue helps with extra light, clarity and depth of perception in the shade.
100% Accuri Enduro Goggle Replacement Lenses.
The Accuri Enduro goggle will fit the Standard, Dual and Plus (poly-carbonate vision corrected) lenses in mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% lens range.
The 100% enduro dual lenses come with tear off posts standard so you can add tear offs to your 100% Accuri enduro goggles.
The Strata is the budget motocross goggle from 100%.
The Strata is the basic model that comes standard with double layer of face foam and a 40mm thick strap. Despite their lack of features, they are still a good deal for only 30 bucks.
The Strata have no outriggers or nose guard.
Overall I find them to be comfortable and do the job well, but they are designed for a more narrow face.
If you have a wider face, I recommend that you look at other brands for a better fit.
100% Strata Replacement Lenses.
The Strata goggle will fit the Standard, Dual Lens and Plus (poly-carbonate vision corrected) lenses in mirrored lenses or any tint you like in the 100% lens range.

The 100% Strata Youth Goggle is exactly the same as the Strata except that it is in a smaller size to suit kids from about 7 – 12 years old.
100% Strata Youth Replacement Lenses.
The Strata Youth goggle lens can be replaced with a youth size Lexan lens in mirrored or any tint you like in the 100% youth lens range.
All 100% Youth lenses come with tear off posts standard so you can add tear offs to your 100% Youth Strata goggles.
The Strata also comes in a PeeWee model that is built for kids between the ages of about 4-6 yrs old.
The PeeWee model has a single layer face foam and a 35mm strap and does the job well for junior riders.
If you aren’t sure if the PeeWee or Youth size will be better, RockyMountain will happily exchange their gear with another size just as long as the goggles haven’t been worn.
100% Strata Mini PeeWee Replacement Lenses.
The Strata Mini PeeWee goggle lens can be replaced with a PeeWee size Lexan lens in clear only.
You can also purchase the Strata goggle with a roll off system attached for muddy riding conditions.
The roll off SVS system is good and works well but I found that the plastic strip that slides across the lens is a little too narrow for my liking.
I much prefer the roll off strip to be a lot wider and so I much prefer the 100% Forecast Roll Off System.
The 100% Strata SVS Roll Off goggle also comes in the youth size.
It is exactly the same model as the adult model except that it is smaller in size to fit kids from about 7 – 12 yrs old.
The 100% Barstow goggle was designed to pay homage to the old school hare and hound motorcycle races from the 1970’s.
They have a very cool retro design but they aren’t all about looks.
The Barstow goggles are very functional and will fit into any modern helmet.
They also have triple layer fleece lined foam for comfort and moisture management and also come with quality tinted lenses that are unique to Barstow only.
The Barstow goggle also has genuine leather, suede and canvas strap trims to give it that old school look while providing maximum functionality. Very cool!
They also come in a bunch of different retro designs that are way cool.
These goggles are SUPER POPULAR and have a huge cult following on the internet with thousands of positive, 5 star reviews all over the place.
They have certainly become a fan favorite that riders love for their retro look and full functionality.
100% Barstow Replacement Lenses.
The Barstow goggle lens can be replaced with a range of lenses in different tints.
The Barstow goggles even come with tear offs when riding them in the mud! Very cool.
