Let's face it, full face helmets and goggles just aren't fully functional during an Enduro race. Sure, they do the job and it's the preferred equipment for most Enduro World Series racers, but during moments of extreme physical effort and slower riding goggles tend to fog up.
I came across this ingenious new product in Les 2 Alpes during the Enduro World Series stop called Airflaps. I was lucky enough to meet the inventor, Serge Gisquiere to talk about the product. Serge comes from a moto-trials background. There is a lot of stopping and slower riding during moto-trials, and he was frustrated with fogging, hot goggle/helmet combos. His frustration led him to develop Airflaps, a solution to the problem of fogging goggles that riders experience.
