Sitting below the range-topping Scott Prospect goggle, the Fury gets an assortment of trickle-down features, such as the Lens Lock System and the ability to use the same tear-offs and spare lenses – and it looks like good value for money.
Scott Fury goggles details
The Fury comes with an orange mirrored, blue tinted lens installed, but the goggles also have a clear spare lens included in the pack.
Both lenses have been treated with Scott’s NoFog anti-fog treatment and have posts for tear-offs. The lenses are also claimed to be impact resistant and filter out UVA and UVB rays.
The lens is secured in place by Scott’s Lens Lock System, which sees four tabs, one at each corner of the frame, click into place to hold it.
The strap has a single line silicone gripper, is size adjustable and attaches to either side of the goggles’ frame.
Foam sections cover the ventilation ports built into the frame and there’s a three-layer face foam with a soft, fleece backing to improve comfort and wick away sweat.
Unfortunately, the goggles aren’t supplied with a carry bag or case.
Scott Fury goggles performance
The Furys are comfortable to wear and have a fairly flat shape that doesn’t cause the nose-piece or general fit to feel constrictive, even once the strap has been tightened up to secure them in place. They didn’t move around or bounce when riding over rough terrain either.
They fitted well in my Giro Switchblade test lid and were also the right size to fill out the Bell Full 9 comfortably. They were slim enough to comfortably fit with open face lids, such as Troy Lee’s A1, without pushing the lid up, too.
The foam is soft and well-padded, and even stayed comfortable once it got saturated with water or sweat. It was also thick enough to stop sweat from dripping down the inside of the goggles into my eyes.
The field of vision was very wide, which meant my peripheral vision wasn’t interrupted by the goggles’ frame. Equally, there were no reflections on the inside of the lens caused by the frame and the clear lens’s optics weren’t distorted and provided great clarity in dark woods.
However, the blue tinted lens was difficult to get used to and didn’t improve vision in either low or bright light, although the external orange mirror looks good, and I preferred using the clear lens in all conditions.
Releasing lenses to swap them was easy using Scott’s Lens Lock System, but getting lenses to fit in the frame was trickier.
There was plenty of air flow through the goggles and they resisted misting while on the move, even in extremely damp and cold conditions. It took them a long time to steam up once I was stationary too.
Thanks to their impressive air flow, moisture didn’t build up on the inside of the lens like some other more insulated and hotter goggles I had on test.
My main gripe with the Fury goggles is the lack of carry bag or microfibre cloth. Once they needed cleaning or storing I had to find my own solution because the cardboard box they’re sold in isn’t going to last.
Scott Fury goggles bottom line
The Fury’s spare lens, great anti-fog properties and wide field of vision mean they’re a top performer. They are a bit pricy and the lack of carry bag is frustrating, but not the end of the world.
