Chromapop is the best thing in design since rocker snowboards. Smith uses specific color filters to help your eyes see with greater definition. Especially for the mountain, having better definition can help you see where ice is, gives you better depth perception, and reduces eye-fatigue. It's a dramatic difference, one you'll enjoy right away. Being part of the Interchangeable series, if the conditions change out there simply use the quick release tab and throw in the included bonus lens. This goggle offers one of the largest fields of view with a spherical lens that has a 3D thickness taper, just like your eyes. Smith also has one of the better anti-fog systems out there. If you look closely, there's a little air-hole built into the lens. Better airflow equals less fog so this airhole feature combined with their 5X inner lens that boasts five times the absorption of anything else out there makes this a fog-free zone. For comfort, Smith uses a wide strap giving more surface area to distribute any pressure while DriWix foam is layered on the frame for the perfect fit. This high-end goggle will impress even the most picky of boarders.
AirEvac Integration Technology - AIREVAC: MAXIMUM AIRFLOW IS CRUCIAL. Goggles fog when standard helmets trap warm, moist air in the goggle chamber. Smith’s AirEvac ventilation systems generate maximum airflow that pulls warm, fog-causing air out of the goggle. The warm air is allowed to exhaust out of the top of the goggle and begin its path through the helmet’s AirEvac system.
DriWix 3-Layer Face Foam - Increased density in base layer foam reduces hot spots helping form a tighter seal on the face. Mid-layer foam provides a plush comfortable layer, perfectly sealing on the face and absorbing sweat and moisture. Fleece lining is soft against the skin for long-lasting comfort.
Dual Axis Outrigger System - I/O 7 Dual Axis Outrigger provides articulation both vertically and horizontally. Elevating integration and fit when wearing the goggle over or under the helmet.
QuickFit Strap Adjustment System with Clip Buckle - Provides easy and convenient adjustment with the addition of a clip buckle to prevent the strap from slipping out of fit.
Responsive Fit Frame Design - The Responsive Fit design allows the frame to adjust and flex to the contours of your face.
Every face is different. By reducing material and creating a flexible architecture, Smith's frames act like a suspension system that micro-adjusts to your unique facial structure, ensuring a precise, comfortable fit.
Ultra-Wide, Silicone Backed Strap - High quality, durable, double-woven strap features a silicone bead for superior helmet compatibility. Distributes pressure evenly around the head for an excellent fit, adjustability and comfort.
Spherical Carbonic-X Lens - Smith has set the standard in lens performance. Each lens is individually molded to offer optimum scratch and impact resistance, increased visual acuity, and enhanced contrast sensitivity. The inner lens is impregnated with Smith's Anti-Fog lens treatments for increased anti-fog performance. The Carbonic-X lens meets Class 1 optical standards as well as ANSI Z80.3 standards.
5x Anti-Fog - Building upon the hydrophilic, micro-etched surface area principles of Smith's Fog-X lenses, the 5X Anti-Fog inner lens has been engineered to provide more than five times the absorptive properties of anything on the market. Initial testing showed standard anti-fog lenses fogging between 30-50 seconds. Smith's proprietary, 5X Anti-Fog treatment withstood fogging for more than 120 seconds in controlled lab tests.
ChromaPop - ChromaPop lenses are the most advanced polarized lenses in the world and allow you to see true colors more quickly to maximize your visual experience. By blocking color wave intersections as they pass through the lens, ChromaPop is able to eliminate color confusion, enabling you to see the outside world with an unparalleled level of vibrancy beyond normal capabilities.
*Available only on select colors.
Tapered Lens Technology (TLT) - When light passes through a medium it refracts, or changes course. If left uncorrected this refraction can cause visual distortion and eye fatigue. Smith's Tapered Lens Technology straightens out the incoming light rays by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center toward the peripheral view. What this means for you is that you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.
I/O7 - Flip up and rotate the quick release lever, pop out the lens and replace with a new one.
