Kroops OTG (over the glasses) cycling goggles

Does anyone know of a European online retailer that sells Kroops over the glasses tinted cycling goggles. Need those specifically because I wear prescription eyeglasses and regular cycling goggles won’t fit.

I only found the USA webpage for online ordering but I’m based in Europe and can’t seem to find any online retailer in the EU with the exception of a few in the UK. Not willing to order from the UK because of guaranteed very long delivery time because of (COVID delays, Brexit import complications) so my only option is a EU online retailer.

I’m in Greece and Amazon isn’t an option either for me so any recommendations much appreciated.

Would you mind sharing the US online retailer and specific model you’re looking at?

@Akrotiri: Why don't you just buy OTG skiing goggles?

See more OTG models here:

I own a pair of tinted Cairn OTG goggles and wear them during sunny weather. I also wear clear 100% (www.100percent.com) Accuri Tornado OTG goggles. Both brands sell in Europe.

These are from 100%. We don't get very much sunshine nowadays :)

I suggest you visit a local welding supply distributor for an alternative. Welders work hard, sweat, grind metal that throws sparks, wear corrective eyeglasses, and wear hardhats. I'm using uvex, but other brands may dominate the market in your country. Grade 5 tint is too strong for biking, but grade 1 or 2 may suit your taste.

I agree about the tint level. I’m only looking for level 2-3. Anything higher would be too much.

The welder option would be good but I don’t live on mainland Greece so any welder here would have something or be able to make something that would make me look like a marble miner.

Akrotiri: Try Google search. I bought all goggles of mine from local online skiing stores. The best seach is for snowboarding OTG goggles. I also wear a Cairn I-BRID snowboarding helmet which is warm, protects ears and is made to fit snowboarding goggles.

I have found these OTG by accurri and there photochromic so they double as clear and darken in the sunlight. Best of both worlds but it’s an Italian online retailer that I’ve never heard of. Any experience with them?

I would go for it were I you. I also bought all my goggles from stores unknown to me before.
