Is this something you can add to any goggle or is it sold built in to specific goggle?

Last summer I lurked around here and almost made a few complete laps at Pachaug, got lost mostly I think. Hopefully this year I can squeeze in some rides with you guys. Every pic and video leaves me wanting.

Both.
That's a homemade one on the top pic. But they do sell a sealed unit to add to your current goggle, or buy a complete goggle with a fan aready installed.
Akarob mentioned them being unusable due to high pitch noise, I assume the mfgr was using the tinniest fan running at max rpm.
Perhaps a bigger quieter fan running on a dimmer switch could be used, as in the homemade version above.
Because running without eye protection is something I won't due.

I got out on Hell Hollow pond with the ice screws and quickly proceeded to break my collar bone. Thankfully someone showed up and helped me load the bike. Armond, If you read this, thanks.

Second that. If you want fog free for regular riding they say Pro Grip get it done. I got 'em and they don't fog!
