Great for Small/Medium heads

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These goggles are great. I got a pair after trying the I/O X goggles and finding that they didn't fit with my helmet or the size of my head. These, on the other hand, are great. They fit my face really well, and integrate with my K2 Rival Pro (size medium) pretty well (the push the helmet back a little bit, but it doesn't affect anything.) The lenses are great, really nice tints and color. The only thing I have a problem with is the face foam pushes up against my nose and makes it slightly harder to breathe through my nose, but I think thats just because of the foam not being broken in yet. All in all a really nice goggle, highly recommend

I am thinking of buying the Distruption/green sol x mirror/red sensor mirror goggles does that mean i would get the green sol x lenses as well as the red sensor mirror lenses

Exactly! The first color is the frame, the second two are the lenses that they come with.

Fantastic Goggles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These goggles are great! They fit fantastically with a smith helmet, lenses are easily changed, and you can see really well out of them. Can't go wrong with Smith!

Difference between these and the IOS AND IOX

They're popular for a reason

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got a pair just like everybody else, and I love them. They fit better with my older Smith helmet (less gaper gap) and the lense interchange system is easy. I can change them in about 60 seconds. Their frameless design does make them more prone to scratching though. But then again, they come with 2 lenses right out of the box, which is cool.

Scratched...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Goggles seemed nice, but they had obviously been used and had a scratch on the lens. Backcountry had no other in stock so I was out of luck... El returno time.

Check the lens of new goggles throughly.

as amazing as everyone says

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

said it in the title. these are awesome. the interchangability not quite as easy as I imagined but it's still really easy :)

Great fit and feel

Great fit and feel

Love these goggles. I have a small face and have had trouble finding a good fit to not let in air on the fast cruisers during windy conditions. These are the best so far.

Simply the best goggle out there.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had smith goggles all my life. This is my third pair of smiths, and I absolutely love them. First off, the two lenses for the different light conditions absolutely rock. The lens changing is easy, the helmet interrogation is genius, and the 3 layered foam is super comfy. These goggles provide excellent clarity and vision quality, and they are worth every cent. The helmet interrogation is absolutely genius, and it works great with other smith helmets. Overall, this goggle is amazing, great frame size for smaller faces, and has great lenses with great build quality. (I'm the one on the left.)

Simply the best goggle out there.

Hard to not love

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Upgraded from my late 1980's Oakleys. Paired with a Smith Maze helmet. Perfect integration with that helmet!

Got red sol x and a blue sensor. These things feel a bit "bug size" which I kind of dislike, but the field of vision is pretty good. I actually liked the Dye FOV better, but these had more comfort.

Foam was nice and cushiony. I couldn't see wearing these without the support of a helmet, as the weight of them make them fall down my face without being super tightly strapped in.

Red sol x worked good until about 6PM on a bluebird midwest day. Decided to go blue sensor from then and on then the whole next day. I actually prefer the blue sensor over the red sol x.

Changing out the lenses was ridiculously easy. Minimal fingerprints but those are easily removed.

Goggles have only fogged once on me, and it was a very wet, damp day.

Great For Everything

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great fit, ease of changing the lenses is a huge plus, I use these for everything from backcountry exploring to racing. 100% would recommend these.

Worth Every Penny

The IO's are amazing I have ridden in every condition with them. They have held up amazing and have great lens clarity. They have only ever fogged up on me once and it was some freak thing with the lense. I would take the IO's anyday and they are a great choice for everybody. I am probably going to get the IO7 next year just for a little bigger of a frame, but the Smith IO is amazing!

Best goggle ever

Yes is sounds like a cliché to describe the Smith I/O's as this but it is entirely true. Smith perfectly combined comfort, quality, and style into this goggle. For example they sit on my nose so comfortably you sometimes forget that they are there. And I can't stress enough on how good of an idea it is to include two lenses. I wear my goggles on the outside of my helmet but I'm sure they fit great on the inside as well.

Best goggle ever

There is a reason why you see so many..

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Reviews tell the story here. Just the best goggle available. I like this size over the other IO styles...I have a med size face. Just ordered a second pair. Great lens choices as well.

Simply - "Great Goggles"

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've gone through a lot of goggles over the past 40 years of skiing. And the technology and design have changed immensely during that period. Over the past five years, I played around with Turbo Fan goggles (at least a few years ago, they were still a terrible fit with helmets), many styles of Oakley goggles. I've always had a terrible time with fogging. The Turbo Fan really helped but didn't work great with a helmet. The Oakley goggles fogged a lot with me, no matter how much I spent on design. I also found that the Oakley goggles did not marry well with my helmet choices at the time. I spent a small fortune on a variety of Oakley lenses but struggled every time when I had to swap them out.

These Smith goggles have really solved all my problems. The I/O lenses are so easy to swap out you have to ask yourself why no one came up with this design before. I've had zero - zero - problems with fogging. This is even more impressive to me given how seamlessly these goggles fit with my Smith Vantage helmet.

A great purchase!

what is the difference between the blue sensor mirror and the gold sensor mirror? I've heard the blue doesn't add much detail and I was wondering if the gold sensor is better or even the yellow sensor, but I know the gold sensor is vlt 70%

Responded on

The blue sensor and gold sensor are both rated for 70% VLT! The red sensor is rated at 60% and the regular sensor 65%.
The gold sensor has a light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer gold sensor mirror which enhances color definition and increases depth perception in varying levels of low-light conditions.
The blue sensor has a light rose base lens tint with a multi-layer mirror which maximizes color definition and increases depth perception in varying levels of flat light conditions.
Bottom line, the base tint is the same light rose on any sensor lens but with slight variations in mirror coating. A lot of people have their preferences based on aesthetics, etc, but they are all awesome for flat light conditions. I really like all of them - actually the red sensor is my favorite. Those warmer colors (rose base + yellow or red coating) are nice for grey days - add a little contrast to that grey scale weather. But 70% VLT really brightens things up so you can't go wrong either way!

These goggles are awesome!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a pair of I/O's before and loved them so decided to get another pair. The visibility is great in these and I have never had them fog up. The lens replacement is very simple! The key is to make sure the lens is all the way into the nose piece before trying to put in the rest of it. They give you exact instructions on how to do this too. I used to use the red sol-x lens which is great for sunny conditions. This pair came with the ignitor lens which lets a little more light through allowing for better vision when going from sun to shade throughout the run. It still provides enough glare reduction to be used on a sunny day. The red sensor mirror lens looks amazing and is great in the low light! Must have!!

These goggles are awesome!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

black on black on black on black. I think oakleys are a little more comfortable (the layer of foam closest to my face is stiffer than that on oakley crowbars) but it's not a huge problem. Maybe I have more of a racoon face after a day on the slopes?

Best Goggle Out

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These goggles are bomber. Huge range of vision with super sick lenses for every condition. The clip on the back of the strap is super convenient and the lenses are really easy to change out. Cant go wrong with Smith goggles!
