Smith I/O Photochromic Goggles 2017

SKU: SIOPHG17
The infamous Smith IO has been around for quite a few years now and still continues to reign when it comes to high end goggles. It has also been revamped for this year with a sleeker design and wider field of view than the original. The Quick Release lens system allows you to switch out lenses on a dime. If the weather for your trip to Vail says sun, sun, sun, but once you get there all it does is snow, snow, snow. Don't worry, just switch to a low light lens and you are good to go. These come with a Photochromic Lens which adapts its tint to the light conditions to help you see more clearly and prevent you from switching lenses every time the clouds roll in. And finally these babies never fog. Smith's patented Porex Vaporator Filter Technology also enables superior airflow that prevents your lenses from fogging up so you see clearly no matter what the weather decides to do.

More Information on Smith Lens Types: Learn More about the many different Smith lens options for different light conditions.

Bonus Lens Included: This goggle comes with 2 lenses, one for bright, sunny days and one for low light, cloudy days.

Photochromic Red Sensor Mirror Lens: This lens changes from lighter to darker depending on light conditions at the mountain, better protecting your eyes and improving your vision. Light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer mirror maximizes color definition and depth perception in varying low light conditions.

Tapered Lens Technology: When light passes through a lens, it refracts. If left uncorrected, this refraction can cause visual distortion and eye fatigue. Smith TLT lenses focus incoming light rays towards the optical center of your eye, meaning you see a 100% accurate display with no funny business.

Vaporator Lens with Porex Filter: Patented technology found only in Smith goggles. The Porex filter allows air to transfer between the two lenses and the outside, but is completely water tight, which cuts down tremendously on between-the-lens fogging. Which is nice, because when you get moisture caught between the dual lenses in a set of goggles, thats usually your cue to get a new pair of goggles. These are better than that.

Carbonix-X Lens: The Carbonic-X lens offers maximum scratch and impact resistance and have been treated with Smith Fog-X anti-fog science. Carbonic-X lens meet Class 1 optical standards as well as ANSI Z87.1 standards. Which is a technobabble translation for: super legit.

Articulating Outrigger Position System: This is a long winded name for a technology that ensures even pressure across all points of your brow and face. When used with a helmet, the outrigger articulates, allowing the goggle frame to sink into the helmet face port, which means a more comfortable, more airtight seal between the helmet and goggles.

Quick Release Lens System: The lenses of these goggles can be quickly swapped in and out simply by popping a few plastic tabs. This is great for hardcore skiers that change lens types during the course of a single day.

Spherical Lens: The lens of this goggle reduces the distortion of images because of the spherical shape. When a piece of plastic is flexed in one dimension, the images becomes tall and skinny, similar to beer goggles. But when plastic is formed into a spherical shape, the distortion is minimized.

Helmet compatible: The strap is longer to fit around helmets, as well as hats, without stretching it to the max. Helmet compatible goggles also try to place the adjustment clips off center to not interfere with goggle clips that are on the back of most helmets. The shape of the frame also sits well with most brands of helmets.

Double Layer Lens: These goggles have a double layer lens, designed to reduce or eliminate the 'fogging' inside the goggles when there are quick changes in temperature. A layer of foam along the edge cushions the lenses for durability and to get a little bit of air and moisture movement.

Grip strap: The strap on these goggles has a silicone band on the inside that grips helmets, hats, or hair so they don't slide around and fall off. It is so effective that it makes goggle clips on helmets obsolete.

100% UVA/UVB Radiation Protection: Optically engineered to screen out 100% of harmful UVA/UVB rays, so you can ski in the bright sun all day without frying your eyes!

Dual Position Clip: The strap can unclip and be positioned forward or aft on the goggle's side. This helps customize the fit for helmet or hat wearers.

Goggle bag: A soft cloth bag is included with these goggles to protect them from damage while traveling. The bags double as lens cleaners, but use very little pressure and its always a good idea to test in the corner of the lens before you figure out that the cloth is dirty and it just scratched up your nice goggles.
