Smith Optics has established a strong pedigree since it was established back in 1965 by Dr. Bob Smith, an orthodontist and skiing enthusiast known for developing the first sealable lens and breathable vent foam. These innovations revolutionized eyewear on the piste and were followed by more unique additions to ski goggle designs that incorporated a micro fan air management system and the latest lens technology. The release of the Smith Athlete Collection sees the brand bring these years of research and development to bear in a series of outstanding limited-edition skiing goggles.
Created in collaboration with four notable Smith athletes, each model represents the full spectrum of what’s required for high-performance goggles worn in the most demanding of situations. The 4D mag, which is available in an extensive selection of fun and vibrant color schemes, brings a magnetic lens-changing system to the table for rapid lens changes on the fly. The use of ChromaPop lenses helps to enhance natural colors and contrast for eye-popping clarity and detail when making snap decisions while skiing. Adjustable straps with ultra-wide silicon backing enhance comfort, while the inclusion of a three-layer DriWix face foam reduces lens fogging to a minimum.
The 4D Mag is accompanied by the Squad Mag and I/0 Mag, each of which retains the ChromaPop lens system with distortion-free optics and outstanding impact resistance. Ideal for all weather conditions and designed for full integration with Smith’s helmets, the Smith Athlete Collection of skiing goggles is essential for skiers and snowboarders who demand the best gear.
