We employ patented micro-electronic fans in the Turbo Fan Series to actively promote the circulation of air even when the user is stopped. Turn the fan on when you get to the hill and in the low setting, the Turbo Fan system will run continuously all day long to exhaust moisture from inside the goggle. The high setting can be used to quickly exhaust moisture in extreme conditions.
Patented Regulator adjustable lens ventilation system in our Regulator Series provides added control of airflow through the goggle. Use the open position while stopped in line or on the lift to increase the circulation of dry, fresh air. Close it before descending to prevent tearing.
Featured in our Airflow and select Junior Series models, our Airflow lens technology features vents in the brow of the lens that increase the circulation of fresh air to keep the inner lens dry and fog-free. A semi-porous foam filter is positioned behind the vents to prevent snow and moisture from infiltrating the goggle chamber.
Fog? What Fog?
Increased Surface Area = Increased Ability to Dissipate H2O
Building upon the hydrophilic, micro-etched surface area principles of our Fog-X lenses, our revolutionary, new 5X anti-Fog inner lens has been engineered to provide over 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 over 120 seconds in controlled lab tests.
Glare happens. Not just on flat surfaces, but also on hard-packed snow and ice - overloading your retinas with too much information and wearing out your eyes. Our polarized snow lenses balance polarization efficiency, light transmission and lens tint to filter out visual noise and cut through haze. This allows the eye to better concentrate on surface features so you can focus on what's important - riding.
Incorporating a photochromic inner lens behind one of our most popular and versatile lens tints, our Photochromic Red Sensor Mirror lens is designed to darken throughout the day, adjusting from morning shadows to late afternoon glare.
Break-through photochromic technology has enabled our photochromic inner lens to react to visible light in addition to UV light, allowing the material to be placed inside the thermal lens, keeping it warm and dry. This helps us to overcome the biggest obstacle in photochromic technology, which is low reactivity in temperatures below freezing.
Tapered Lens Technology
Tapered Lens Technology
"Objects in lens are exactly the same as they appear." When light passes through a medium it refracts, i.e. 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.
Two lenses bonded together with spacer foam create a thermal barrier, keeping your inner lens warm, dry and fog-free.
Spacer foam thermal barrier enhanced with our patented Porex™ filter to prevent water vapor entry between the lenses.
Patented Vaporator seal and Porex™ filter permanently bonds two lenses together, allowing the lens to breathe while preventing moisture entry.
