The Revolts, goggles made by SunGod, a British sunglasses and now goggles company, follow the same formula that made their sunglasses successful.
Launched via Kickstarter, the SunGod Revolts are both customizable and interchangeable. Wearers have a choice of one of six lenses (sold separately) and the goggles have a comfortable and secure fit and a sleek design.
After testing out SunGod’s sunglasses mid last year, I was excited to get my hands on SunGod’s latest creation, the Revolts. Here are my thoughts on the SunGod Revolts Goggles after testing them out for a bit:
- Fully interchangeable lenses
- Clear, improves vision when skiing
- Comfortable to wear, even if you’re out for hours at a time
- Adjustable strap, can be worn over or under your helmet
- Well priced, £85 (around USD$120)
What sets the SunGod Revolts apart from most other goggles is that you can customize almost every aspect of them, starting from the lenses to the straps. There are 6 different lens types and countless combinations to choose from. Customize your own pair of Revolts here.
These are the 6 lenses to choose from:
- 4KO®snow Smoke – a black color, a dark all round lens
- 4KO®snow Green – a greenish blue color, the one I chose, according to SunGod, this is the most versatile
- 4KO®snow Fire – an orangey-yellow color, according to SunGod, increases contrast and good for bluebird days
- 4KO®snow Chrome – a silver color, ideal for brightest conditions
- 4KO®snow Pink – a pink pastel yellowish color, neutral feminine all rounder
- 4KO®snow Hi-Vis Blue – a translucent bluish purple color, best for low light conditions
The Green lens, which I have, darkens your surroundings and have an almost purplish-pink tint. What normally looks white looks pink through the lens and everything looks a bit more saturated. The darkening is helpful, especially on those bright days on the snow, when the white ground reflects the sunlight. The tint does add some extra contrast, but as a beginner skier, honestly I can’t tell if it helps my skiing.
The lenses are interchangeable, but it took me a while to figure out just how to remove the lenses. Here are the steps:
- At the sides of the goggles are two black, white or mint colored knob things depending on what color frame you bought. Turn those knobs.
- Pry the lens from under the knob.
- The lens is attached to the frame at 5 points. Gently detach it by gently pulling it away from the frame. Try not to scratch the lens in the process.
You can get extra lenses for £35 each (around USD $50). I only have one lens, however if you’re an avid skier or snowboarder, it might be a good idea to pick up multiple lenses, one for each type of condition.

When wearing the Revolts, they would fog up a bit at first, but after a minute of two, the fog would go away. The goggles keep your face warm, but also have a few foam areas where air and moisture can escape.
The lenses are rigid, but the entire frame of these goggles is flexible. That allowed me to get a pretty good fit on my face. There aren’t any gaps and the goggles sit nicely and comfortably on my nose bridge.
I haven’t come across any major cons, but I’ll update this post if I do.
