quality in some cases
hard to clean
Ok,after wating for like 3 months, I was able to get a pair of these. After hearing all the hype about e-vents/avatars I was really excited. I currently had a pair of I3 invisions, and a profiler I got from a sponsor. I love both the I3's and the profilers, and when everybody put the avatars on a pedisol like a gift from god, I was really starting to think that the avatars would be perfect.
Quality - Out of the box, these goggles apear amazing. They look well made, and come with 2 lenses ( a smoke thermal one, and a clear single one) as well as a bag, and all the normal stuff. - I have heard that the quality one some is not so great, and things come unglued.
Looks- they look really nice. I really like the other color comming thru neer the mouth piece.
Flex/profile - they are flexy. not flexy like a profles, but more than a proto axis, so you will get bounces. THey are also pretty close to you head, and are a small target to hit.
Weight. They are light, again not like a proflex, but still much lighter than most goggle out there
Maintence - this is a 50/50. The lense change/ removal is easy, but when you have to clean out the multi layered mouth piece, it can be really hard, I use a water pick, which works, but others you can just wipe off.
Breathability - this is the downfall of the mask. there are no other vents on the mask (kinda funny, becasue the name is vents) besides the outh ones, which cant be too big, becasue oif the eat-paint problem. out of all the high end masks, this has one of the worsd vends. a profiler is much better here. Even the invision has better vents.
It has alot of hype, but to be honnest a profiler is cheaper, has more replacement parts, is easier to get, better vision, better vents, and is an all around better buy. I have sold my avatars already, becasue I like my profilers and I3's much better, The good part, was I was able to sell them for the price I got them.
It is a good mask, but there are better out there. The profilers are my favorite, but to be honnest I like the I3's better than the avatar. they are a good mask, but it is really disapointing, when you get it, and it is just ok, not amazing. I would not recomend them, because you can do better for your money. If you already have them, or get them from a sponsor, dont worry, because they are a good mask.
