There is I believe that one has a fan in it, but not even close to comparable with the ABOM. The ABOM technology is years ahead of everyone else and works no matter how wet and soggy your goggles are. Their lenses are a sealed system with a heating element that instantly defogs them which is super cool. I also like the fact that both inner and outer lens are Carl Zeiss. In other words you can wipe both the inside and outside of the goggles without damaging them, all the other goggles I have owned (SPY Doom, Dragon APX ... etc.) have a delicate anti fog inner lens that you cannot wipe without damaging
But Fuller didn't like how they fit his face. So, the technology can be great but if they're uncomfortable who wants them? They can fit other's faces, but that doesn't help the person whose face they don't fit. For instance, I have a real problem with goggles that smush my nose, which many do. If I get smaller goggles, either my vision is obstructed or I have gaps all around which is not great on sub zero days. All the technology in the world is not going to make a bad fit get better. Maybe once they are making more styles that issue will go away.
