"Very Nice" -Borat
These are sweet goggles. There are a plethora of lens tints and frame colors for every lighting condition and outfit (if that's important to you). The tint descriptions are in the sizing chart, I think that's the most important thing to checkout. The venting system, (I leave it open all the time) works great, any fogging that happens is gone in no time. Great perif. vision, no distortions at edges as advertised. Love the Mirror lens (have the Platinum lens) the only thing that's better is the face shield worn by Cobra Commander and last time I checked they don't sell those. Works great with my Giro Fuse brain bucket i.e. no gaps. I have a smaller face and the Phenoms fit great. I bought the Smith Prodigy goggles as well just for comparison. They are a similar lens design but the Prodigy frame engulfed my face, they have a bulky, funky, edgy look but not for me, returned them. As far as shape and size Phenoms have a minimalist look but if you're looking for a more eye catching look the diff. frame colors make up for it. The Platinum Mirror lens is great for sunny days and bright overcast days but when light goes really flat they def. suffer or rather you do and you need to turn on Jedi powers. I was told by a Smith rep. the Sensor Mirror lenses are great for Flat light and the Ignitor Mirror lenses are for all-around goodness. Happy-times!
