Smith Optics Lenses

LENS TECHNOLOGY

Smith goggles are built using the most technologically advanced lenses in the world. They combine patented thermal lens technologies with the most sophisticated fog-fighting inner lenses ever created to provide three levels of performance to match perfectly to your needs. To be effective, a thermal lens is designed to keep the inner lens warm, dry and above the dew point. Much like a storm window, it must be perfectly sealed to prevent moisture from entering in between the two lenses. Thermal lenses must be able to adjust to varying atmospheric pressures, temperatures and conditions – simply stated, it must breathe. The science behind a successful thermal lens allows this thermal barrier to effectively breathe while preventing moisture entry, and maintaining its insulation properties for the inner lens.

POLARIZED OPTICS

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.

PHOTOCHROMIC

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

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.
