First Look: 2013 100% Goggles and Eyewear

<b>Roll on 2013! Introducing the new line of 100% goggles. This here is the Accuri in a fresh "Subway" color with a green mirror lens. There's also a new Accuri Jr model for the groms.</b>

<b>All 100% goggles are tear-off compatible, all of them use the same lens shape, and all of them have an anti-fog coating. We dig that. We also dig how clear our vision is, even with mirrored lenses.</b>

<b>Coming it at $45-60, the Accuri is 100%'s mid-range offering. It uses triple layer moisture managing foam.</b>

<b>The frame is made from a surprisingly flexible yet durable urethane. The flex helps get that perfect fit against your face, ensuring rocks won't intrude.</b>

<b>The dual adjust strap is another feature shared across 100%'s entire line.</b>

<b>Here's the big daddy, the head honcho, the top-of-the-line Racecraft model. For 2013, there are a total of 14 color options, 5 of which are brand new.</b>

<b>Stepping up from the Accuri, the Racecraft gains a handful of features for just a small price increase. It goes for $65-75.</b>

<b>The Racecraft features a removable nose guard. Ride moto or in the cold? You may want to keep it on.</b>

<b>By moving the strap attachment point outwards, outriggers help with fit and balance inside a full-face helmet.</b>

<b>Note the air intakes. These help channel air into the foam, reducing moisture and the chance of fog.</b>

<b>The 45mm wide, silicon coated strap helps keep things in the right place.</b>

<b>All-new for 2013, the Strata comes in at just $30. It features the same dual adjust strap system as the higher-end models, something not often seen on a price point offering.</b>

<b>Dual layer foam gets the job done on the Strata goggles.</b>

<b>Also new for 2013, 100% has added five different styles of sunglasses. We're partial to the Atsuta.</b>

<b>Translucent blue? Yes please.</b>

<b>The man, the myth, the legend, Nicolas Vouilloz, has always given 100%. Enjoy the action.</b>

Born in the 1980's and synonymous with motocross, the 100% brand was reborn in 2012 with a focus on quality goggles. Over the course of 2012, the brand steadily grew its presence in the mountain bike world and could be found on the helmets of several top World Cuppers. Entering the new year, here's an overview of everything awesome in the 2013 eyewear lineup.
