Elite Helmet

NEW LEVEL OF INTEGRATION

Smith Elite takes the concept of integration to a new level by adopting the military’s Human Systems Integration (HSI) process. This approach takes human variables such as fit, optical performance, ballistic performance, integrated equipment, and weapons interface into account to refine a product’s functionality across the spectrum of factors. We design specifically to optimize performance allowing real-world testing to drive the product’s evolution.

Anti-Fog

Anti-Fog

Smith Optics was created by our founder Bob Smith in 1965 with a single goal in mind: to create a goggle that would not fog. Our experience with anti-fog technologies is unmatched; we understand the science of what creates fog on a lens and how to combat it.

Ballistics

Ballistics

When it comes to ballistic capabilities, Smith Optics surpasses the competition. We put our Elite products through the most rigorous testing possible in order to constantly improve how much abuse our products can handle. Making a functional ballistic lens is more than just making the lens thicker. There are hundreds of factors at play, and all of them need to be fine-tuned to surpass MilSpec standards. In doing so, we have taken our eyewear's level of impact protection far beyond the highest standards set by the US Military.

Optics

Optics

Details are important to our customers and that is why we measure optical clarity not only with results from the lab, but with feedback from the field. As with all components we measure minute performance requirements in the lab; however lab performance does not always transfer to the field conditions where the eyewear is used. Coupling the field feedback and the lab results allows us to focus our design on what is important to the user and measure that performance to ensure we deliver the highest quality in every lens.

Design

Design

Design is more than just how stylish a product is. We understand how important that aspect is, and it is certainly incorporated into everything we do. However, design is also how all the aspects of a product's functionality are brought together. Smith Elite takes the concept of product design to a new level by adopting the military's Human Systems Integration (HIS) process. This approach takes human variables such as fit, optical performance, ballistic performance, fog-mitigation, integrated equipment, and weapons interface into account to refine a product's functionality across the spectrum of factors. We design specifically to optimize performance allowing real=world testing to drive the product's evolution…and keep people looking stylish while doing it.

CRYSTAL CLEAR SIGHT

Fogging is performance inhibiting, annoying, and dangerous. Smith Optics founder, Dr. Bob Smith, began our battle against fog in 1965 when he pioneered the first thermal lens. To this day, Smith Optics continues to lead the industry forward in the development of fog prevention. In addition, our line of eyeshield and goggle lenses incorporate a tough scratch resistant technology. The combination of premium anti-fog and scratch resistant lens coatings will keep your line of sight crystal clear so all you have to think about is your objective.

TLT Optics

OTW Turbo Fan

PERFECT VISION

Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively curved lens causing it to bend or distort an object's true size or position. Imagine looking through a fish eye lens. What your eye normally sees is stretched beyond reality. Get the picture? TLT (tapered lens technology) corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center towards the outer edges. Light waves are thereby delivered straight to your eye resulting in zero distortion and true optical clarity. What you see is what you get.

Serialization

Custom fit system

SERIAL NUMBERS

In the world of body armor and ballistic helmets, standardized serialization allows for completely transparent backward tracking of every item. Eyewear is simply an extension of these foundational ballistic components. The unique serial number found on the Aegis eyeshield and the OTW goggle allows for discrete traceability of every lens produced.
