Are You 'Factory Pilot' Worthy?

March 12, 2013 4:55pm

The new, game-changing Airbrake MX goggle, releasing to the public this week, reflects Oakley’s 35 years of design evolution since its founding as a pioneer in grip and eyewear technology in the sport – with the Oakley MX Grip coming out as the brand’s first-ever product in 1975.

Fast forward to today and Oakley’s rich history and generations of MX Stars – from Mike Bell, Ricky Carmichael, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey, James “Bubba” Stewart, Eli Tomac and more – are celebrating a new era in Motocross goggle design. And they want to know one thing…DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN OAKLEY FACTORY PILOT?
