Tech features: The Racecraft goggle is 100%’s high-end goggle and sports all the latest technology. The
co-molded, sculptured frame features multiple air intake
ports, an integrated nose guard, and outriggers for the
no-slip, silicone-coated strap to attach to. The lens is made
from impact-resistant Lexan and uses an anti-fog coating on
the inside. The Racecraft goggles retail from $65 to $75, depending on lens options, and tipped our scales at 5. 2 ounces.
Field test results: On the dry and dusty trails of Southern
California, our riders simply couldn’t sweat enough to cause a
fogging issue, thanks to the massive air intake ports. In wetter
climates and on rainy days, the lens can fog if you’re not moving,
but we’ve yet to test a goggle where this isn’t the case. If you’re
moving, the lens won’t be foggy. Simple enough.
While the integrated nose guard offers a little bonus protection
and looks very trick, some riders had issues with it interfering ★★★★✩

Rock-solid performance you can mount anywhere
These days it is hard to go anywhere without your smartphone.
The capabilities of these phones keep getting better and better every time you blink, which makes you want to carry one
along with you on rides. Rokform helps you do just that with its
American-made Rokbed v3 mountable phone case. The basic system costs $39 and includes the mountable protective case, non-slip pad, removable lanyard and adhesive car mount.
Tech features: Rokform’s Rokbed v3 phone case allows
users to mount their devices in multiple locations with the Remote
Mounting System (RMS). The RMS can be installed onto anything
with a small flat surface for the adhesive to stick to. With a quick
twist, the case locks into the RMS mount for a secure fit. The case
and non-slip pad can be ordered in multiple colors, allowing you to
customize the look of your case.
Field test results: Finding the right case for your phone is
always tricky. There are many factors involved. Does the case look
good? Does it provide adequate protection? Can I still easily use
all the functions of the phone? We took the Rokbed v3 case along
with us to check it out.
The first thing we noticed was how slick and high tech this
case looks. The design is very slender with no sharp edges, which
makes the phone easy to throw into a pocket or hydration pack.
We were, however, a little disappointed with the level of protection
that the case provided. The entire case is polycarbonate, with no
cushion zones to dampen an impact. There is no integrated screen
protection, so you are best off installing a separate screen protector to keep the phone safe from the elements.
The Rokbed v3 case provides access to each port, switch and
button on the phone; however, we found it difficult to use the
buttons on the perimeter of the phone since the buttons were
recessed within the case, making it hard to find and operate them
(especially with riding gloves).
One of the coolest features was the available magnet combo
kit (additional $19). The 10-pound rare-earth magnet fits cleanly
into the backside of the non-slip pad, allowing the phone to stick
to anything steel. We found it very useful when working in the
garage. We were able to pull up specs or instructions on our
phone, then stick it to the toolbox or vise where we were working. This was super convenient and helped keep the phone clean
during dirtier projects.
Overall, the Rokbed v3 case was very useful and tagged along
really well on all our adventures. We do wish the buttons were
easier to reach, but on the flip side, we never pants-dialed anyone.
In a market that is flooded with competition, Rokform’s Rokbed v3
phone case stood out from the rest with its ingenuity and utility. ❏
